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! :)


  1. Hi Kim,
    Thanks ever so much!! You are so kind to do this. I have a lot going on today but will post about this either tonight or in the morning so please don't think I've ignored it! :-)

    Your blog is wonderful...and you are too! I tried to respond to your email but the "no reply" was there.

    Thank you again!!

  2. Your welcome. :) I have no idea how to change that 'no reply' I keep thinking I've found what I need to change...but I guess I best start looking out here again. I hate feeling like such a newbie. ;)

  3. Hi Kim! Thank you so much. You are so kind! I see quite a few blogs in your list I've never been to. I'll definitely be paying them a visit. Have a wonderful week!
