Thank you, wonderful shelter bloggers and readers, for the tremendous encouragement you have shown me. Each one of you is a lovely light now shining in my life.
A belated thank you to
I am so honored.
Beautiful Interiors and 18th Century Style favored me with this Happy Award; and Holly Goes Lightly honored me with this Happy Award.
The gift of self is the best gift we can give. Thank you all for the gifts you give us daily. And, as customary, here are just a few little bits about me:
I have been in love with antiques/vintage since college and still love anything with a worn and loved surface. I was an antique dealer for several years and now just collect for myself. Nothing terribly fine, just interesting and the quirkier, the better. In the past few years, I have been trying for a more new/old mix which I love.
I think David Letterman is totally sexy.
I am an avid cyclist and a member of a local cycling club. I have ridden as many as 75 miles in one day; but much prefer 30 - 40 mile rides.
I will fight you for Lindor truffles.
One of my passions is hospice care (care for the terminally ill). I used to be a patient care volunteer, but have moved into volunteer fundraising for my local hospice. I help organize an annual fundraising cycling event in my community; we have raised around $75,000 from our events.
I would marry the Barefoot Contessa, I don't care if she is a woman. That adorable Jeffrey could come along, too...

I pass the Beautiful Blogger award along to these wonderful bloggers. Babies, pass along the award only if you choose; you are not obligated. Just wanted to say 'I adore you.'
Please visit these blogs, if you haven't already. I have linked to one particularly wonderful post on Petunia Face.
Fact is, I adore all the blogs I visit daily and regret that I am unable to list them all. You all light my days and YOU are the reason I get absolutely nothing done anymore....
