Okay, I love blogging . . . it's just the work it takes to do it that I hate.  

And now, thanks to my friends Amy & Kris of Today's Country Store in Sumner, Washington, I have the distinct honor of not only accepting their generous accolade, but also passing the KREATIVE BLOGGER award to seven other worthy blogs I enjoy!  

Thanks a lot Amy & Kris!!!! ;-)

Please be sure to check out Today's Country Store's (now more       Kreativ) blog!!!!

Here's the scoop for the seven heavenly blogs I pass the torch to . . .

The Rules:
1. List 7 things that you love.
2. Link to the person who has tagged you
3. Choose 7 more bloggers to give the Kreativ Blogger Award to.
4. Comment on those 7 blogs to let the recipients know you chose them.


1.  Well, he's not a "thing" (other than my sweet-thing!), but JIM is the number one love in my life.  He has supported my efforts to remain in this tough, demanding, but beautiful business . . . despite the hardships it has placed on him.   This blog wouldn't even exist without his constant technical genius!!!  THANK YOU, JIM!!!!

2. My sister (and friend), Peggy  . . . my friends Corrine & Denne . . . my customers who have become my friends . . . my dealer friends who have become my friends . . . and all who put up with my crazy intensity!

3.  The flat-out beautiful simplicity of a well-made vintage or antique object.

4.  The flat-out beautiful elegance of an ornate, gorgeous, and frequently useless object. 

5.  The mixing of the flat-out beautifully simple with the flat-out beautifully ornate objects.     (Anyone who knows me...knows I'd "decorate" a garage sale!)

6.  Sinfully delicious, REAL chocolate (no Hershey for me, no siree!)--well, maybe it's really a   toss-up between chocolate and Pralines & Cream ice cream from Baskin Robbins . . . .

7.  Watching foreign and period movies (love-a-love-a those antiques in them thar movies!) 

DRUM ROLL, please . . . and the nominations for 7 Kreativ blogs are:

Amy's  Vintage Cottage--a "siamese twin blog" connected to Today's Country Store! (no, you don't have to do 7 more . . . just love your new blog and want you to get an award from me!
