Blog Awards!

This week, I have gotten 2 Blog Awards! Yay!  Thanks so much to my girls Lindesy and KBR for the awards!

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

Here is how the award works:
1. You thank the person who presented you with the award.
2. You tell 7 things about yourself.
3. You award some other newly discovered bloggers

Thanks to my wonderful blog friend KBR for giving me this award! She is so sweet and I love reading her blog and what's going on in her life!

7 Things about Myself

1. I paint my nails several times a week.  A long time ago my SIL, Katy, showed me how to do the perfect manicure and I have put it to good use. We also share nail polish!
2. I love vintage jewelry. My rings are vintage inspired.
Engagement ring: white gold, raised diamond in the middle with a circle of diamonds around it and diamonds down the side.
Wedding band: white gold, small diamonds on the top half.
and I also have a necklace to match. I love looking at antique jewelry at antique malls!
3. My hubby was the first guy I ever kissed (cute, I know!)
4. I love accessories. I think I have about 10 pairs of earrings on my Christmas list!
5. I *usually* only buy things on sale. I hate having to pay full price for something.  But on quality pieces, I don't mind.
6. I love buying things for other people. A lot of times, I feel better when I buy something for someone else other than myself!
7. When I was younger I died my hair black. Not in a gothic way, but because I thought it was super stylish! It has since grown out and I absolutely love, and appreciate my natural hair color!

I am awarding this to everyone who reads my blog! I truly love reading all of your blogs and getting to know you!  I honestly can't choose!
