A Nice Surprise





I was so surprised and honored to receive these awards for my blog from a very talented bear artist,  Cheryl of Bingle Bears. She does the most amazing little Teddies. They are so sweet.! Here's a link to her blog. I always enjoy reading her blog and seeing her her wonderful new works. It is truly an honor to receive this award from her.

Here are the rules for the award acceptance:

(1) Thank the person giving the awards
(2) Copy awards to your blog
(3) Place a link to their blog
(4) Name 7 things people don't know about you
(5) Nominate 7 bloggers
(6) Place a link to those bloggers
(7) Leave a comment on their blogs letting them know of their awards

Now for the 7 things you probably didn't know about me.

(1) I like peanut butter and pickle sandwiches
(2) I used to slam dance at the Mabuhay in San Francisco. Yes, I was a punk. Mohawk and all.
(3) I like collecting old bits of blue willow pottery that I find while out hiking in the desert.
(4) When I was kid, I loved to play Tarzan. But since I was the littlest, I always ended up being the chimp.
(5) I was a Joey to the World and belonged to Clowns of America. My clown name was Pumpkin.
(6) I love horned lizards. I think they're my favorite lizard.
(7) I was featured in an Amercan Kennel Club Gazette article titled "Dog Walking San Francisco Style".   Yep, I used to walk dogs for a living among many other things.

My 7 nominees for the award:

(1) Chrissy at The Felted Chicken
(2) Joan of Desert Mountain Bears
(3) Melody  of  Original Art (ACEO) of Melody Lea Lamb
(4) Kimi of Son Blest Bears
(5) Patricia of  Woolytales Miniatures
