Beautiful Blogger - Me?

Thank you, Joyce, for touching me with this Beautiful Blogger Award. I SO appreciate it and hope that I always will bless those who come here to visit me.

I'm supposed to tell you 7 things about myself that you may or may not know. Isn't it silly when we have to think of something like this to say, our minds go blank. Hmmm - maybe that's one thing you may or may not know about me! My mind goes blank!

1. I wanted a toy poodle from a very young age and it's the first Christmas present I received
from my husband. I have never been without a poodle since. Thanks, honey!

2. Being a writer is something I've wanted to be since early childhood and one of the greatest
gifts I ever received is a Smith-Corona typewriter (with the slip in ink cartridges) from my
father. It confirmed his faith in me and I still have the typewriter!

3. I've played the piano (by ear) since I was 3 years old and started lessons at 4. I also have
perfect pitch (which is a blessing or a curse depending on who's playing the instrument! lol)

4. My husband is 16 years older than me, but doesn't look it. That either means I look really old
or he looks really young. I prefer the later explanation!

5. I love birds and collect Marjolein Bastin items as she paints the most beautiful birds! I also
have several bird feeders and will go without things for myself so I can feed the birds. :)

6. I used to be a craft designer and have had my items in several decorative painting and craft
magazines, plus a couple of books.

7. I had a crush on Joe Namath when I was a young and confess that I still might! (maybe
that was TOO much information! lol)

Well, I've either made you laugh, ponder or driven you from my blog forever with these 7 things. Oh, what we will do for a little award!

Okay - now I want to pass this award on to seven of my favorite blogs. One of my favorites is Joyce, but since she gave it to me, I guess I can't pass it back to her, but she would definitely be at the top of my list! Thanks again, Joyce.

Here are seven blogs that always brighten my day and bless me whenever I visit:

Pieces From Me
Diane's Place
Passion For Purple
Other Such Happenings
Three's a Crowd
Coffee, Tea, Books and Me
It's All Good

God bless you - Julie


  1. Thank you very much my friend!!!

  2. Aw, thank you for including me, Julie! I appreciate the sentiment, and I'll try to post it on my blog and pass it on soon. I'm honored, dear friend. :o)

    Joe Namath? lol ;o) Hee hee!

    Love and hugs,


  3. Thank you so much Julie. I am quite honored! I loved reading the 7 things about you!!!

  4. You always bring me to giggles as I read your blog. I loved your crush was of course none other than Donny Osmond. When I found out he had a girlfriend and was getting married, I was crushed and never liked him again...LOL.

    You are the sweetest spirit I know and I have been so blessed by you. Thanks for your friendship!


  5. I am assuming that is your toy poodle pictured on the sidebar, very cute! You made me giggle and ponder :) You definitely are a beautiful blogger, writer and lady!!

  6. Marnie -
    Yes, that's my beloved Tammy Lou (the toy poodle)on the sidebar. She's getting to be almost 12 years old and has a heart condition. She takes three pills a day and is doing pretty good, but I dread the day something happens to her. I love my poodles. They are smart, loving, devoted and just fun. I can't imagine living without a poodle in my life. :)

  7. Thanks for the nice award, Julie!
    I know what you mean about having perfect pitch. I too play by ear and it drives me nuts when I hear anything off pitch.


Please leave me a message! I love hearing what you have to say and look forward to your comments.
