Raise Your Hand If You're Versatile

There's this award going around for versatile bloggers.
I just found out that I am a recipient again.
I was awarded the Versatile Blogger Award by Deborah Jean at Dandelion House!
Deborah Jean has a wonderful blog and writes for MaryJanesFarm as their BEACH farmgirl blogger.
I'm a MaryJanesFarmgirl. Are you?
Anyhoo, Deborah Jean is pickin' cool, so head on over and pay her a visit.


Now onto the details.
I need to choose 15 blogs to pass the award onto and notify them by leaving a comment on their blog.
Okay, here we go:
1. I'm So Vintage
2. Pickles On Pizza
3. The Primitive Hutch
4. Nest 'n Feathers
5. momto8blog
6. Hillcrest Home Prims
7. Outjunking
8. The Primitive Skate
9. A Few Pennies
10. Primitive Passion Decorating
Whoops, that is only 10. So be it. If ya want to join in, please feel free to do so!

Next, I need to share seven random things about myself:

My barn wood table with Christmas decor.

1. I have a love for barn wood. It is not a new thing. It all started about 35 years ago when we were able to score some wood from a friend's barn and make furniture and decor items from it. And I'm still doing it today. Check out my barn wood farm table here. Oh, I will probably add some barn wood designs when I expand the business. Oops, did I say that?
2. My love of vintage and handmade items comes naturally. I hate to shop the big name stores. So I don't shop. I'm a simplistic gal. Not complicated at all. We all can reuse and recycle. Actually, I get a kick out of it.
3. I am a bit rebellious. I blaze my own trail. I'm a little different. But that can be a good thing, right? I like to blog cause I find others just like me. I'm not alone!

4. I talk to animals. And I hate to admit it, but it is usually baby talk. What makes a supposedly mature woman do that? I don't talk baby talk to babies. No, I save it all for cute little puppies and kitties.
5. I exercise three to four times a week. For my health. Cause I can. Use it or lose it type of thing.
6. I am becoming a more versatile cook and baker because of Pinterest. I was becoming tired of the same old thing in the kitchen. Lovin' all the new veggie recipes I've found. Preppin' myself for the harvest in the garden when the time comes.

  7. Nature provides me with balance and a sense of calm. We have a lake out back so the view is gorgeous. And it comes with plenty of wildlife to enjoy. I actually have 3 benches in different spots in the backyard so I have great views from all angles.

And there we have it. Seven things you really didn't need to know about me, but if you read this far...thank you. I hope you weren't too bored.

Now go on out there and blaze your own trail if ya haven't already!

Hmmm. I feel a little guilty because I can exercise and don't. Maybe one of the animals I talk too will tell me to get too it!

Thank you Cindy so much for the award. Fun to learn such interesting things about you. Once I figure out something about myself I will honor this award. I got to look deep, so not to board anyone.
Have a great weekend,
