A “Lovely Blog” Award

You know, I use the word “lovely” often, and I think it is so neat that Caroline, of the blog Dressed in Time, has described this very blog as “lovely” and nominated it for the One Lovely Blog Award! Thank you, Caroline! I am so pleased to be included on your list of nominations.

You probably know how these awards go: there’s a list of things to do:

1. Thank the person who nominated you.
2. Add the ‘One Lovely Blog Award’ image to your post.
3. Share seven things about you. 
4. Pass the award on to seven nominees. 
5. Include this set of rules.  
6. Inform your nominees by posting a comment on their blogs.

Since this is all about being a lovely blog I am going to use pictures to share things about me, and since you often get to see pictures of the lovely historic places I visit and beautiful clothes I wear, I’m going to change it up and share places I’ve been in modern clothes. I can’t take full credit for the picture idea because it was inspired by the One Lovely Blog Award posts by Caroline and the blogger who nominated her: Susan Ardelie of Life Takes Lemons.

    Congratulations! I love that the pictures have caught on–I especially enjoyed your take on the Washington memorial. I, too, find myself lying under objects to get interesting perspectives.

    The blogs you’ve nominated are all new to me. I’ll have to check them out cause they look great!

    • Yay! One of the neat things about blog awards is that you get to discover new blogs you haven’t come across before. I’m glad I can share these *lovely* gems with you! 🙂

  2. Thank you so much, Quinn!! I greatly appreciate the honor, and I am definitely going to be writing about your blog on the “awards” post in a few days! Your blog is absolutely lovely, and it’s very fitting that you were nominated! I adore the wide range of costuming eras you sew for, as that’s right up my lane!

    Have a wonderful day,
    Katrina
