Oh "sew" stylish, dahling!

I was tickled pink recently to learn that I had been tagged with this oh-sooo-stylish blogger award by not one, but two lovely and talented friends who I admire greatly: Diane Oliver and Carrie Gaskin.  I am truly spoiled!  Thank you so much, Diane and Carrie!  

One of the responsibilities of a stylish blogger is to share 8 things about myself...not always easy for me but I'll give it a try!

  1. My husband, of 17 years, and I have a wonderful daughter (7YO) who makes us laugh everyday!
  2. I have been a Reference Librarian in both public and academic libraries for those same 17 years--wow 1993 was a good year! :-)
  3. I have always been crafty but, like a true Gemini, find many, many crafty ventures that pique my interest! I love the satisfaction of being able to say "I made that!"
  4. I believe in the transformative power of books and always have a stack of books on my nightstand.  Currently, I am reading The Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet.
  5. I lived and worked as a model in Tokyo, Japan.
  6.  I would call my style modern elegance--I don't do "cutesy" very often!! ;-)
  7. I love trees.
  8. My favorite Starbucks drink is Chai Latte.  I don't do coffee!  :-)

Stylish bloggers know where to go for inspiration and though it's impossible to name just a few (my Google Reader grows everyday!), I give you 8 of my favorite bloggers:
  1. Nancy Lempinen - my Mom, my original source of all stylish inspiration.
  2. Tara Bilbao
  3. Christina MacLaren
  4. Margaret Moody
  5. Anne Marie Hile
  6. Kristin Moore
  7. Jen Sannes
  8. Julie DiMatteo
Thanks for stopping by today and indulging me in my "stylish" moment!  Be sure to check back tomorrow when I will have an exciting announcement under the Canopy!  Happy Friday, friends!

I just love learning more about people :) Makes one's cards come alive in a different way as you kwon the person behind them. Wowzers, a model in Japan - you go girl. Have a friend who did Paris. I'll have to come to you for a reading list too I see :) My bedside table grows in height and my reading time diminishes until summer when thing slow down a bit with the kids out of school. Congrats on the award :)

Nance, you are awesome! Thank you so much for the award. Coming from such a "stylish blogger" as yourself, it truly is an honor. Loved reading your 8 things, too. I think you should start a new box in your side-bar called "What's Nance Reading?", too. I just love exploring new books. Have a happy day! :)
