Honest Scrap Award

We'd like to thank our friend Judy at Tapestries of Nature for bestowing upon us our first blog award! The award criteria states that recipients must tell 10 things about themselves that not many people know, and then must select 7 other bloggers to be so honored.

We tried to pick blogs that have not received awards -- especially this one -- in the recent past. So, drum roll please. The winners are:

Green Oak Shop Talk
Linda Crispell
Maddie Lisee
SoBo Style Journal
VanDaff's Interior Design and Antiques
Adventures of an Invisible Woman
Musings of a Sea Witch

All these sites are listed on our blog roll, so please hop over and check them out!

And for our 10 things, we divided the list up, 3 for Joe, 3 for me, 4 for rhubarb reign:

Joe is 1/16 Ojibwa (Chippewa); almost tried to become a professional bass fisherman; is a terrific cook (you should try his Stuffed Brussels Sprouts)

Sandy has lived in a small town (Plymouth), the suburbs of a large city (Chicago) and a foreign country (France); is nicknamed "Squirrel" (by Joe!) and collects them (not real ones); loves coffee way too much;

rhubarb reign participates in an average of 42 shows per year, in addition to stocking Midland and doing appointments; logs 30,000-plus miles annually on its trusty van and trailer; is headquartered in what used to be a car wash; had its initial meeting on 9/11

Hey, that was fun! We look forward to seeing what everyone else has to say. xo

Thanks again.

These "random things" just never get old! And I still can't get over the fact that you live so close. We really need to lunch sometime....We could wear fancy hats and pretend that we are "Ladies who lunch". ;)
