Thank you Chanie from www.aroundthedinnertable.blogspot.com for nominating me for the Stylish Blogger Award - WOW!  I'm tickled pink!




So here's how the Stylish Blogger Award works:
1.  Make a post and thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award!
2.  Share 7 things about yourself!
3.  Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers so we can share the love!
4.  Contact these bloggers and tell them they're won!

Here it goes....
#1:  Thank you again Chanie (www.aroundthedinnertable.blogspot.com), it's such an honor to be recognized...Yay!




#2 Seven things about me:
1 - I love decorating a cake a million times over the cleaning up part - hate the cleaning up and storing everything away each and every time - tiny place, 2 little kids, "out of sight-out of mind"
2 - I'm a perfectionist and slightly OCD but I'm very understanding, open minded, helpful and very giving and just too nice - and I'm also a bit silly.
3 - I come from a crazy background that confuses people:  My mom's Chinese, dad's Portuguese, I was born in South Africa but raised in Zimbabwe, and  I've been living in California since the age of 10.  Family gatherings are just wild in that nearly everyone looks Asian, speaks Portuguese and are mostly from Africa - used to drive my husband nuts when we were 1st dating.
4 - I annunciate all words with a "T" and my British accent (Zimbabwe was British) slips out whenever I read, am really tiered, or just hang out with another person with an accent for a few minutes. And unfortunately, I don't speak any Portuguese, just understand it.
5 - I love, love, love popcorn!  Plain and lightly salted, nothing fancy.
6 - Drawing, painting and cake decorating are therapudic and relaxing for me:  It's always late, the kid's are asleep, the home is calm and quite and it's just me and art....until the clean up part.
7 - I live by the motto that you should always be fair and treat others the way you would want to be treated and don't make enemies because one day you may need them.
