I've been Tagged and Awarded

Being tagged or given an award in Blogland is always humbling to me. But sometimes [as many of you will agree] answering the questions and passing it along [knowing how busy everyone is] as part of the acceptance is overwhelming. You want to show your appreciation but the hours in the day are not enough; you thank the person- and set the questions aside - intending to get to them ... then it disappears into the pile of computer files... surfacing months later, giving you  a red tomato shade on your face "How could I have let that slip (forgotten)".

Just as I was about to put a button on my sidebar saying how much I appreciate being tagged and humbled by awards ~ I don't want to disappoint - by not being able to fulfill the requirements and pass it along to others. So please leave me a comment in place of an award or tagging.

I received an Award - for Versatile Blogger from my dear friend Adrienne of The Rich Life (on a Budget) Adrienne has a fabulous blog and shares wonderful fun ways to enjoy life that DO NOT break the bank. Recently Adrienne also teamed up with another blog friend Rebekah to write Sugarless, Flourless and Fabulous! to share wonderful tips and recipes for eating healthy and staying fit.  Thank you Adrienne for understanding and saying up front if not able to do it - it is ok.... Thank you!! Thank You!!

I was also tagged by Halle of Classic Glam you can read about Halle, in my first response. 

Quick Blogger TAG

 1. Who tagged you?
I was tagged by Halle of Classic Glam. Halle is new to Blogland, but if her first few posts are a taste of what she will be writing and sharing ... you will definitely want to be following her for fashion, interior design and at home spa remedies.

2. What is the main idea of your blog?
Originally when I started blogging in March 2010 ~ it was an outlet to help re-develop my writing, focus, memory and interacting skills in conjunction with my Speech Therapy (post accident). As I travel down the road of this detour in my life, it's starting to evolve into creating a Me and Life that better fit together.

3. What are your top 3 places to shop?
Through blogging I have meant some wonderful friends who are not only bloggers but wonderful artisans and purveyors of  things from simpler times [something that I find most appealing ~ like antique/vintage china; silver etc.] ~ ETSY and Blogger Boutiques

Holt Renfrew (it's like a Saks in the USA)

from street vendors to designer boutiques to the fabulous pastry and chocolate shops...

4. If you got $500 what would you spend it on?
I would buy chocolates and cards; donate them to the local Women's shelter, so that the women and children they help would know that someone is thinking of them and wishing them a Happy Valentine's day.

5. Flats or heels?
I am definitely a Heels gal heart and soul (if you see my shoe shelves they are still filled with heels) but, I'm slowly accepting that flats are in my future [my reality now]

6. Favorite color (be specific!)?
This is a tough one... I have been gravitating towards softer colours ... robin's egg blue ~ is definitely my go to colour at the moment for an accent colour in our home. For clothing earth tones (creams, tans, taupe, brown)

7. Favorite blogger of the moment and why?
WOW ... it's difficult to narrow it down to just one. There are so many wonderful wonderful ladies whom I admire for so many different reasons. As I read this question ~ a dozen names all entered my head. But rules are rules ... so 
Carol from Facing 50 with Humour ~ even on my darker days, reading one of her posts ~ will soften a smile on my face ... and make my day a little brighter. When she was recently held hostage (not literally) without any internet access, = no posts, I found myself going back and reading some older posts. Even the second time around they managed to make me smile.

8. One of the goals you have for your blog?
I would love for my blog to become a great spot for people to find inspiration, motivation and be helpful to those facing transition(s) in life.

9. When did you start blogging?
March 1st 2010 my very post went up.

10. Who do you tag? 
(At least 5 people: include names and links!) 

I encourage you visit each of these ladies, they will brighten your day and inspire you! Please stop by and welcome Halle Classic Glam to BlogLand.

To the ladies I have tagged [borrowing Adrienne's words] please don't feel obligated to "do" your award ,tag if it's not your thing or you are too busy.


  1. Congrats on the award and it was neat reading your answers....

  2. Ahh! Thanks for doing the tag! It was great reading your post :) Thank you for the warm welcome!!! By the way, I put you on my "Great Blogs!" page! :))

    Keep on bloggin'!!


  3. Dearest Celia,

    Gosh, just found out about this tagging here... Thanks for mentioning me; I'm humbled. Will take that home for next week but I'm a bit overwhelmed this week. Too emotional for getting a lot done. My brother had his surgeries but his lungs are not doing well, he had some mucus being sucked out. Guess from the ventilator in the early days still. But he still remains in ICU. Patience is hard to live by for loved ones and for the patient himself. Who knows he gets to go to a normal room on his birthday?
    Love to you dear friend and role model!


  4. Celia,
    You have brought a lump to my throat on this snowy grey day. You are one of my dearest friends here who has helped me accomplish so much and I admire you hugely. Thank you for singling out my blog and more importantly for being my friend.
    Oh dear I am mushy today aren't I?
    Thank you so much for this award which I shall take away and hopefully do you proud in my next post.
    Loved Mariette's last few words...you are definitely a fabulous role model.
    PS I am in flats too but only because I got 'old lady' corns which made my heels hurt! :) I have had to accept that I can no longer prance about in those heels grrr!
    Fondest wishes
    Carol xoxo
