My Notting Hill.....

I am a huge pushover....
so vulnerable to flattery....
hang on any compliment....
completely surprised
to see my blog listed
 granting me a
 Stylish Blogger Award.

Did I say OMG!?
What I actually said,
I wouldn't usually print here....so I won't ...
(I know you are glad)

This award
  requires you to share 7 things about yourself
 and award some recently discovered bloggers. 
(Some of these are not so recently discovered, but I believe you will enjoy them all!)

1. I think....or have assumed that I am/was a Leo.....with recent developments, I am unsure.
But I still act like one, and my sweetie is one too....roar!
2.  I have never had musical training, but love music and will listen to the local classical channel for hours on end, if given the opportunity.
3. I know a bit about art history, architecture and Greek mythology, as I devoured books on 
all of this when I was a adolescent.
4.  I covet camera equipment. Really. I drool when I read about another blogger's newly acquired 
piece of equipment. And, quickly pull it up on B&H photo's site, to see how long it will take 
me to acquire one.... 
5.  I buy junk (or junque ;-)) and sell most of it on Etsy. Some things I simple cannot part with.
I have a soft spot for things; 
that I might have seen in my grandmother's house, are of 1960's vintage, or are
modern in design.
6. I fancy myself a dancer, but dread an upcoming May wedding that will require dancing 
on my part...yipes!
7. I am addicted to Diet Coke, and am constantly shocked to find several empty cans
on my desk....is there a 12-step program for this?

I am quite sure that is just about all you want to know about me....
so here are some interesting people that might 
just tweek your fancy.....smiles

    I'm a Diet Coke Junkie too-- One Coke Zero (with caffeine) in the morning then caffeine free the rest of the day. I've tried and tried to give it but but no luck.

    Have a great week, jj
