An award...for me?

Was I surprised to discover this award or what!  It's been a bit hectic around here so this is the first I've had a real chance to get this typed out.  I was told to take my pick...Versatile or Stylish.  I chose the Versatile Award.  Yep...this is me versatile...I am all over the place! :D

[vur-suh-tl or, especially Brit., -tahyl]
" capable of or adapted for turning easily from one to another of various tasks, fields of endeavor, etc.: a versatile writer."



"characterized by or conforming to style or the fashionable standard; fashionably elegant; smart or chic: She wore a very stylish gown to the inaugural ball."

By accepting this reward I agreed to the following 4 rules:

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award.

I am honored to receive a Stylish Blogger Award from The cape on the Corner ! Thank you so very much!!

2. Share 7 things about yourself.

   ...oh where to begin ;)

   1. I am divorced mother of 3 grown daughters.  I have been with Mr. Touch of Nostalgia....Mr. Bill for almost 9 years now. :)

   2. I have 5 grandchildren (2 grandsons and 3 granddaughters) Ranging in age from 15 to 4.  Which makes me feel ancient actually writing that out. ;)

   3. I was born blonde, then as I grew older it we fixed that...I am still blonde with a BUNCH of natural gray hairs. ;)

   4. I have lived in Upstate New York for going on 9 years.  I was born in Ohio, temporarily lived in Chicago in my youth until my Dad passed away and we moved back to Ohio.

   5. I love most anything old.  I love the feeling of holding something that has as story to tell.

   6. I love gardening.  Flower and vegetable.  I do not wear gloves when out digging in the dirt planting.  I love the feel of the warm dirt in my hands.

   7. I am still unsure of myself in this blogging world.  I suppose it will come in time.  So if you don't see me around it doesn't mean I'm not here, I am usually out here viewing my little heart out.  It just means that I'm not sure I have anything worthy of writing at the moment.  But I am here... ;)

3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers.  For those I have given this award to please choose which award (Versatile or Stylish) that you think you are. :)

Wow there are so many and I am fairly new out here so most are new to me.   Please pay them a visit!

4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award!
I'm off to let these bloggers know how wonderful I think their blogs are and to expect a visit from you! :)

Have a fantastic Sunday! :)

A Gotta Have.....

This little mischievous pooch was one of my gotta haves. ;)  It's a small picture (5 1/2" by 4 1/2").  It cost me an entire $2.14 on EBay.  I had ordered other things from this person and the shipping on all was greatly reduced so I'm sure I only paid a few cents on this for shipping.  Right now he sits propped on my desk making me smile every time I look at him.   He reminds me of our dog Fritz.  Not in looks but in actions.  The first day after we gave Fritz his forever home he goes and decides my new bathroom rugs would make a good snack.  Wrongo Fritz. ;)  He has been the perfect dog since then.  It was only a matter of telling him no.  He knows what's his and what's ours.  We couldn't ask for a better pooch.

My new sig on it and the back is covered with paper.  The photo looks to  have a dark area on the right hand side in the white....but that is due to the photographer ;) not the photo. :)

And our you see the resemblance? :)

Here are a couple more old pictures we picked up at an estate sale this summer for a $1 a piece.  They both have metal frames.  And once again...I know nothing about the history of them.  But I do know they have a good 'feel' about them. :)  Both pictures are small...neither being larger than 7".

This one is has glass on it.  I look in the picture...and can see myself in that cottage with the pup with NO snow on the ground! ;) 

This one has no glass.  I'm not sure if it's intentional or it was broke.  The picture has a 'soft' old paper.  I could see myself here too....sipping on a lemonade watching the sailboats.  Oh Spring...hurry up and get here! :)

I hope all of you have a warm weekend.  We have another winter storm watch up.......I am soooooo excited!  NOT!!! ;)

Enjoying the Snow.....

As long as I'm inside the house with a hot cup of coffee and a nice warm slice of cinnamon bread I'm a happy camper.

It's having to go out and shovel the mess that makes me remember that I'd really rather live in a warm climate. ;)

Anyone for a picnic?  Pick your drift and get comfy. ;)

 The swing looks to be available. ;)

There is one in this family that absolutely loves this weather......

Fritz....our pup ;)

Stay warm!!
