One Lovely Blog Award….

one-lovely-blog-award I’d like to thanks David Delaney for nominating me for the ‘One Lovely Blog Award.’  I was flattered when I saw his message. 

Our paths on the web somehow crossed a while back. David writes both short and novel length stories and offers a treasure trove of information for writers on his blog.  Everything from inspiration to tips on being more effective. 

The link to David’s blog is below:



The rules of this award:

  1. You must thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  2. You must list the rules and display the award.
  3. You must add 7 facts about yourself.
  4. You must nominate 15 other bloggers and comment on one of their posts to let them know they have been nominated.
  5. You must display the award logo and follow the blogger who nominated you.

Here we go, 7 facts.

My first summer job was as a car hop at our local Sonic. I wore white roller skates with red wheels. (And I only fell down twice all summer long! And only one of those incidents included spilling an entire tray of food into the customer’s car.)

I hate water on my face. (after I wash my face in the shower, I dry it off with a washrag.)

My favorite food on the planet is homemade tortellini. My mother is from Italy and this was a dish served on holidays and birthdays when I was growing up. I shared the recipe and the techniques from the “old country” during the April Blogging challenge. You can check out the post here.)

My TV indulgences include watching Project Runway and Ink Masters so I can see the creative process and witness the detailed execution. (I kinda hate the drama they sometimes incorporate. I’m all about the art, not the behind the scenes disagreements.) (The whole family was glued to the couch for hours and did an Ink Masters marathon last summer.)

I have a creative side and enjoy crafty projects and painting.

My imagination runs wild when it’s dark and all the scary movies and books from days past come out. (I won’t walk through the house with all the lights out… I also turn my head or change channel when a commercial airs for a super scary movie.)

When I was young, I went through different career interest phases and wanted to be: a spy, a doctor, a writer, and a teacher. Found out that being a parent makes you all of those at one time or another.


Naming fifteen people who have created lovely blogs that are wonderful to stop by was actually easier than naming 7 facts about myself. I’d like to nominate the following bloggers for the A Lovely Blog Award:

    • Ann, Thank you so much!!
      I’m sure just looks like I know what I’m doing and not operator knowledge… 😉 If you have questions, let me know. My CP was great help when I ran into issues. (I may have learned enough to offer minimal, layman’s assistance. 🙂 But seriously, with your schedule, how will you fit in… one… more… thing?


  1. Congratulations on your Lovely Blog Award, Elsie!! There are so many things that make your blog lovely beginning with that spooky, romantic (take your pick) opening photo followed by your cute smiling face, and THEN I finally get to reading about some new interesting book reveal or informative tidbits from you about improving as a writer.

    I can just see you on those roller skates with red wheels! The things we did to earn our early cash !!

    I appreciate the nomination, and feel like I’m in good company since I enjoy several of the other nominee blogs, and look forward to perusing the others. I must admit I don’t follow the award rules, but I always try to (eventually) acknowledge my dear friends who nominate me. I need to get going on an acknowledgment and will include some fun facts about myself. I’ll try to get that done in October (am on the road right now)!

    • It was my pleasure!
      In my mind, the spy job I envisioned was always closer to Anne Hathaway in “Get Smart” or Angelina Jolie in “Mr & Mrs. Smith”… so definitely a dream (But the hair would have been from the Dynasty era 😉
      Hope you have a great weekend.
