A Blog Award and Blog Tag

I have been awarded a Spanish Blog Award : ) by Barbara at Southern Lady's Vintage. Thank you for selecting me! The award is forwarded to charming bloggers who invest in the PROXIMITY of space, time and relationships. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. The authors ask that you pass this award on to other blogging friends and include their link in the post. Notify them to let them know that they have been given the award. So please spread the love!

Please stop in and visit with these lovely ladies!

Nancy at Tis Design Works Originals

Jenn at
Mysteries of the Juniper

Chrissie at
Just me and my Shadow

I have also been tagged by Carolyn of Draffin Bears . . . and asked to post 6 random things about myself. So here goes:

1 ~ I think there is a squirrel living in our attic and I don't want to go up there!

2 ~ I auditioned for the National Ballet of Canada when I was 15 years old.

3 ~ I really don't like Fashion (being told what to wear). Maybe that is why I like vintage clothing so much.

4 ~ I have too many chairs and tables, but I still keep buying them at auctions, LOL.

5 ~ I want to swim with Dolphins and just might get the chance on our next trip.

6 ~ I want to be on Survivor, but they won't allow Canadian participants : ( Maybe I will be the first !

I will tag these lovely ladies . . . . . and ask them to share some secrets about themselves:

Mya at Creative Musings with Mya

Kim at
Kim's Treasures

Monica at The White Bench

Since I played two games in this post, I reduced my tags to three each. I hope that is OK. Have fun reading and have a great weekend! Karen

Congratulations on your award...very deserving!!!

Wow~The National Ballet! That's awesome! I love reading these random things about people. I will be posting mine soon...I need to come up with 6...hmmm.

Enjoy the movies...I'm excited!


Nancy said...

Congratulations on your award...and thank-you so much for mine.

Survivor??? Really??? Isn't raising two kids, a hubby and a dog surviving?!

Have a great weekend!
Hugs, Nancy

Karen ~ Cider Antiques said...

Hi Nancy, Yep, I agree . . . surviving day to day family life is more than enough!

The family joke is I would be the first one voted off Survivor. I have "say what you think" disease. I am sure it would be much worse once you become cold, hungry and grumpy. Being the first one voted off might be alright though . . . a nice long vacation waiting for the final vote!

Have a great weekend, Karen.
