The One Lovely Blog Award comes to me from Art by Rob Goldstein, a beautifully artistic blog that examines a great range of human struggles and emotions.
Thank you for the nomination! I nearly missed it, since it went to my spam folder and I only found it by chance. The lesson here is that bloggers should occasionally check their spam folders because they sometimes make mistakes.
- Thank the person that nominated you and give a link to their blog
- List the rules.
- Display the award on your post of the award.
- List seven facts about yourself.
- Nominate (up to) 15 bloggers for this award and comment on one of their posts to let them know you have nominated them.
Seven Facts About Me:
I was raised around foreigners and travelled to several other countries during my childhood. I believe these experiences opened my perspective.
I’m both an Anglophile and a Francophile, resulting in more than a little cognitive dissonance.
I love detective stories and British murder mysteries. I’m fascinated by what motivates people to take drastic measures.
I’m a history buff who loves old buildings and antiques. Sometimes I fantasize about living somewhere like Downton Abbey, then I remember I’m a Social Democrat.
There are both born-again Christians and spell-casting witches in my family, so holiday get-togethers are “interesting.”
When I was a little girl, I reenacted the French Revolution and Salem Witch trials with my Barbies. I got really into it, making powdered wigs out of cotton balls and a Tinker Toy guillotine.
I won my first writing contest at age ten for a story I wrote from the perspective of a turkey whose wife was chosen for Thanksgiving dinner. All the other kids were making cute little cards, but I got carried away. Luckily, our teacher saw my dark side’s potential and entered the story on my behalf.
I’m not going to use up the full fifteen slots, because some bloggers like participating in these things while others don’t.
