I am feeling quite special this week, I recieved "The Versatile Blogger" award from Belva Rae.  She is a Maine writer (a new book coming out soon) and a lobsterlady!  She lives along the coast of Maine.    So a big hug to you, Belva for thinking of me.  

But first I had to find out the Webster's dictionary meaning of Versatile is:  "Movable in any directions, as the antenna of an insect."  So, this makes me think of a bumble bee on a flower.  Andi fits this as a baker from one recipe to what do I make next!  

So to do this correct:  follow the rules, 
1.  Thank your giver and link back to them
2. List 7 "things about yourself"
3. Send this along to 15 other bloggers,  In no given order.  

Seven things about me.........

1.  I love flea markets, antiques stores, and always looking to add to my collection of ironstone and old tin cookware.

2.  My clothing store of choice would be L.L.Beans in Freeport, Maine.

3. Raggedy Ann and Andy are my favorites.

4. Love magazines, like Paula Deen, Country Living and Hobby Farms.  I still like turning paper pages.

5.  I lived in Alaska for 3 years.  Miss those 24 hours of daylight during the summer months. Where they eat salmon, and bear........

6.  I have one favorite daughter, Morgan Ashley who lives in Huston, Texas. 

7.  Don't like long sleeve shirts, I always roll up the sleeves.  

I am picking 15 other wonderful blogs, who I will pass this along:

1. Canela Kitchens
2. A well-seasoned Life
3. A Fine Farmhouse
4. Slice of Southern
5. Happy Domesticity
6. Musing Mainiac
7. Jane Deere

10. Scrambled Hen Fruit
11. My Farm House Kitchen
