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!!!! ;-)

7 THINGS I LOVE:
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:
