My First Blog Award!

Hi Everyone!

     I cannot believe that I have won my first blog award! Grandma's Guide to Life was so nice to include me and I am super flattered that she thought that Crafty Geordi  is stylish enough to receive the Stylish Blogger Award! Thank you, Carli!


Here are the rules for acceptance of the award:
  1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you the award.
  2. Share 7 things about yourself.
  3. Award 15 other bloggers.
  4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the award.
 So, seven things about me are:
  1. I have 16 pets. The only ones I actually purchased were Missy the horse and Sandy the dog. Everyone else was re-homed to me or stray. What can I say? I am a sucker!
  2. I purchased my 1995 Volkswagon Jetta for only $700 almost 2 years ago. It had only 35,000 miles on it when I bought it. We use it every day for our commute, it has saved us so much money in gas! My other car is a 1995 Ford Explorer.
  3. I taught myself how to make jewelry. During a trip through the American Southwest in 1992, I purchased some Native American jewelry from a man on the Navajo reservation. I looked at the necklace, thought "hey, I could do this!" and as soon as I was home, I began shopping local bead stores.
  4. My family laughed at me tonight when I purchased a single lottery ticket for the $350 million Megamillions California Lotto game. I figure that you can't win if you don't play and I am in the game now, right?
  5. My grandmother taught me to crochet when I was 9. I did that for a few years, put it down and didn't pick it back up until I was in my mid thirties.
  6. I collect antique Oneida silverplate. My first piece was a Community spoon and then I was hooked! Most of my pieces are mismatched.
  7. I love country music. Partly because I have been able to meet so many of the artists, including Rascal Flatts!
     So, now it is time for me to pass on the love!
 Congrats, everyone! I am very glad to have found your blogs. This was a hard list to make because I have a loooong list of blogs that bring joy to me every day and I wish I could award everyone!

I'm honored to make your list, thank you so much! I wish I could have 16 pets, if I had the time and the space I definitely would. Other than thrifting, I'm passionate about animals :)
