Awarded...Now It's Your Turn...

*Edited to include the rules...which I had forgotten to include the first time!

Last October, Debra from Acquired Objects honored me by passing on
The Versatile Bloggers Award.

But at the time I was very involved in a project so I'm embarrassed to say that I am
just passing it along now. 

I thank Debra and I am certain you will want to visit her beautiful blog Acquired Objects
and see all the creative and fabulous things she has been doing with her carriage barn. It
truly is fabulous. Debra is a wonderfully creative person!

Now, one of the things we have been asked to do is share 7 things about ourselves that
you might not know.  So, here goes...

1.  I love music...all kinds of music.  In the morning while going to work I listen to popular
music and on the way home I listen to classical music.  For classic music I especially love
choral music, it's like listening to the angels sing.
2.  I can't carry a tune to save my life!
3.  I work in tv.  I used to be in production and specialized in(what else?)music shows. 
I have been fortunate enough to have worked with everyone from Pavarotti to Streisand
to Marvin Gaye to James Brown...and the hundreds in between. 
4.  I wake up early every day around 5:30am but stay in bed until 6am or so.
5.  I am active in animal rescue.
6.  I grew up with antiques and learned through osmosis from my wonderful parents.
7.  Years ago, in between show productions, I used to design closets for a large closet
company.  I would work on a show and as soon as it wrapped I would design closets
until my next show started...aah, the freelance life!

Now the second part of this award is to pass it along.  This is the difficult part because
there are so many wonderful bloggers but I have to pass it on to just 10 bloggers in hopes
that they will also pass it along...

I hope you will all have a chance to visit these lovely blogs. 

*Here are the rules I forgot to state:

1. Thank the person who gave you the award and link back to their post.
2. Choose ten blogs to nominate and let them know by leaving a comment.
3. Request the chosen blogs pass the award on to another 10 blogs.
4. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
5. List seven things about yourself that we might not know.

Have a wonderful day.

*Note to above listed: Please remember this is just to recognize and compliment you. 
There is no obligation to you. I know some of you don't have time or may be award free
so please do not feel obligated. Blogging is suppose to be fun.

I'm truly touched to be included in your list. Thank you! And, what fun facts you've shared. Love knowing your love of music - both personally and professionally! I have one son upstairs taking his drum lesson and one who will be taking his guitar lesson tomorrow. Listening to smooth jazz - my favorite. So...I'm usually surrounded by music, too.

Wishing you a wonderful day! You've certainly made mine!
