Liebster ? For Moi?

Imagine my surprise and delight!
Laura at Sunday View   choose me as one of her Leibster recipients! 
 I'm doubly flattered because Sunday View is on of my favorite blogs. 
  Laura designs for Oxford Press and if you have not seen her Tag Tuesday 
V is for Votive
 creations for the Alphabet tag series you need to! 
Y is for Yesteryear
Below is a link to one of my favorite Sunday View posts. It is one of  the most original and whimsical creations I've seen. 
I promise you will want to yell 'Brilliant!' Slap your forehead and shout, "Why didn't I think of that!" Squeal with delight, and possibly suffer a pang of jealousy because she is so darn talented. Having done all of the above, I am moving on to Copy Cat and planning a trip to Starbucks to gather supplies.  
You'll also want to visit  Laura's other recipient - expat Brittany - The Rococo Roamer . Besides great travel posts she creates the most delish items like the clutch below.
This beauty is  the prize in a give-away. Brittany is talented and generous.
Congratulations Brittany!

And now 11 things about me.

11. I studied creative writing with one of my states Poet Laureates.
Me and Bear - one of my foster buddies - fireside.

  5. Susan,
    Thanks so much for stopping by!! I LOVED reading this post and finding out so many totally cool things about you!!! LOVED IT!! You are my type of person!! LOL!!


  6. Just blushing over your lovely post about me. Loved reading your brief "bio." A detailed account about any one of these would be fascinating! We DO have so much in common, soul sista. I KNEW you were a writer--some of your pieces feed my soul. I have a B.A. in English with a concentration in creative writing (suck in it), and I married a composer from Battle Creek. We spent a lot of time in Brigantine when he played at Harrah's before moving to L.A. Guess we love those musician types! I'm sure we'll discover more commonalities as time goes on. Thanks again!

  7. What an honor! So cool to learn more about you. I hope you tell us more of that ghost story this Halloween.
