Stylish Blogger Award

Ta da- a huge thank you to The Art of Being Perfect for passing this award on to me ! What a way to start my week, Sunday night- my team the Pittsburgh Steelers won the AFC Championship-go Steelers .

And then I woke up this morning and found this on my blog-wow. I am very honored to accept this award. It's such a fabulous way to meet new bloggers and promote each other. There are some rules when accepting-aren't there rules with just about everything ?

Here they are:

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award
Massive thank you to The Art of Being Perfect for the Award.

2. Share 7 things about yourself

1. My heart belongs to Paris (well J too ! ).

2. I've always believed my sister and I are fraternal twins born 3 years apart.

3. Champagne is my favorite drink.

4. I love Tasmania , if I couldn't live in France I would live in Hobart.

5. Standing in the wilderness with zillions of stars overhead brings tears to my eyes.

6. I still believe that people are really good at heart.

7. Louis Armstrong singing "What a Wonderful World " -I could listen to it all day long.

3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers

Here are 15 of my favorite bloggers. Some more recently discovered than others but all incredibly talented and all more than well deserving of A Stylish Blog Award. Check them out :
