Just this last week, the wonderful C.B. Wentworth awarded me the lovely 7×7 blogging award. I was quite surprised and flattered that my blog had caught the notice of someone who seems much more into the world of blogging. So thank you C.B. I am quite honored. And for all my readers, I recommend you check out her blog. It’s really a lot of fun.
I feel like I’m just playing at it half the time, and that most of the time, my posts are quite, well, worthless. I do it for myself, mostly, though I do try to keep my readers in mind. I don’t always post every thought off the top of my head. Though, I would like to sometimes. I’m a girl, we do that sometimes.
Well, part of the requirements of this award are as follows.
Share something about myself that others don’t know. (for the record, this isn’t really a very fair question. Wouldn’t you like to know more than just one thing?)
Okay, I’ll restrain myself.
I collect coins from foreign countries. It started when my great-grandmother gave me a small leather pouch containing ones she had collected on her travels throughout the world. That was when I was about 10. Since then, I have amassed a small fortune, ( maybe) and I am forever asking friends to pick up a few coins when they go to another country. I also stop into coin exchanges and peruse. Just this Christmas I was given some coins from Lebanon, Sweden, Norway, and Mexico.
Link seven posts from your blog that you think are worthy.
I hate this part because it feels like I am bragging. Well, I’ll do my best.
The Romance of Hanging Laundry
Vintage Craze – Part 3: Cloche Hats
Nominate seven other bloggers that deserve the award and haven’t received it yet.
Albert Berg’s Unsanity Files
Albert Berg is this crazy zombie apocalyptic fiction writer, who while he has given up his major writing, still gets around. A bit of flash fiction that is creepy beyond belief, and a self-published book, along with tips and how tos on life and living, Al has it all. I highly recommend you check out his past posts if you like creepy.
Isabella Louise Anderson
Ms. Anderson is in the process of advancing her career as a chick lit writer and along with her adventures in that, she posts reviews of books, lovely Fun Fridays, which could be anything, and just a smidgen of this and that. I look forward to her posts, and I applaud her dedication. This is a woman who completed NaNoWriMo, as well. How could you not applaud that?
The adventures in raising a four-year-old, along with all the unique questions said four-year-old asks. I look forward to the book reviews little bits of random information Mommyo passes along to all of us. This has to be one of the blogs I look forward to the most.
the lacquer log
I am a nail polish junkie. Okay, that might be a bit extreme, but I do enjoy painting my nails, and I’m always on the hunt for a good nail polish. I find reading about makeup and beauty relaxing, and this one fits the bill. Her descriptions of the polishes are wonderful, along with what I view is an honest review. While I don’t paint my nails too many odd colors, nor do I paint that religiously, I do enjoy a bit of mix up here and there. If you enjoy nail polish, or just seeing really nicely manicured nails, I recommend this blog.
A (Bad) Poem A Day
I don’t get around to reading this blog that often, but I have enjoyed reading different types of poetry Jesse posts. Some are thought provoking, others are just funny. Mostly done in free form, some has rhyme and I just enjoy it.
I like the mix of poetry, images, and the occasion rants. I can’t really explain why I enjoy her blog other than it ends up making me smile in some way or another. I think part of it is the pictures she posts with each post, just gel together in this really magical way.
Tim Kane Books
Another blog I don’t get around to reading that often, but I always enjoy the random posts that kind of make me think. A writer, he has bits of writing advice, random quotes, and little things that make me laugh.
Presents of Mind
How could you not enjoy reading a blog where the gal has a typewriter? Okay, well there is more to it than that. A reader, writer, journaler, I enjoy all the little bits she posts. Tips on writing, and all sorts of various things to help one write. I don’t get here often, but I enjoy it none the less.

I love your coin collecting hobby! I have been collecting international coins since I was a little girl. There is something so fascinating about currency from a far away place (and time). I have everything from modern Europe, Africa, and Asia to civilizations that no longer exist (Roman Empire and the Ottoman Empire). 🙂
Thank you so much, Kate. I’m honored. I’ll be putting it together and up on my blog to pass to others soon! And thanks for the kind words.
Thank you for the nomination! It made my day. Well, truthfully, it’s made my weekend, but that just makes me sound pathetic, so I’ll go back to the traditional “it made my day!”
The Four-Year-Old collects coins too. Her grandfather (my father) got her started on it by giving her his collection of 50 State coins. We had a rather exciting moment this week when she found a Vietnamese coin in her piggy bank. None of us can figure out how it got there. I’m a little afraid she’s starting to believe that her piggy bank just generates foreign currency on its own. I caught her this week feeding it a penny and reminding it that she doesn’t have any coins from Mexico yet.
Thanks again for the nomination. I’ll let you know when my post accepting it is up (hoping for Monday, as I try to take the weekends off).
Its good to read someone share the same hobby as mine. 🙂
I had been collecting for over 15 years and they’re still many coins that I need to collect and keep in my album. 🙂
That’s so great you collect coins too. It’s a lot of fun, especially when you can finds ones from countries that don’t exist, or are pre-Euro.
