Reader Appreciation Award (:


Michelle Fitzurka of Fitztopia nominated me for a Reader Appreciation Award. I’m honored! Fitztopia is a wonderland of photography, Michelle’s art, highlights of other renowned artists to keep an eye on, and much more, all woven together through thought-provoking and heartwarming posts. You should definitely check it out. Thanks Michelle!

Recipients of the award are asked to:

  1. Identify the awards and who gave them to you.
  2. Post the Logo on your blog.
  3. Share 7 items about yourself.
  4. Nominate 5-10 other bloggers to receive this award, and notify them on their blogs

Seven items about me:

  1. I am addicted to diet coke (caffeine-free though)
  2. I was born in Germany, but in my mid-twenties I moved to Virginia on my own. Quite a culture shock!
  3. People peg me for a classical or traditional music type, but I actually listen to hip-hop, disco, motown, reggae, R&B, lounge music, Latin and French music, and some German music.
  4. I LOVE animals and horseback riding. I currently have two dogs, four cats, and a horse.
  5. When I’m not reading, dreaming, or thinking about interior design, I love to watch murder mysteries on TV (the non-bloody kind like Midsomer Murders and Murder She Wrote).
  6. I love warm weather, but in spite of cold winters, I love New Jersey.
  7. My daughter redecorates her room, including moving her furniture and tapping into my inventory, on a monthly basis. Wonder where she got that from?

My nominees:
