So, this week I was granted the dubious honor of the Versatile Blogger Award.  (Thanks Meredith from WhyNot Pottery!) I say dubious because there is no cash prize, not even a ribbon, and it feels very much like a chain letter....But on the very positive side I AM happy knowing that Meredith follows my blog, this chain does push readers to read new blogs and "meet" new people...and I've always had a secret desire to follow through on a chain letter...

The only requirement of this award is to pass it on to 6 others....and to tell you 7 new (!?) things about myself.

(I imagine that there are some of you I am including that have already been given this honor....Meredith and I do "read in the same circles" if so bask in the extra appreciation and go on with your day knowing I love having you in my blogging world!)

Susie Gibbs (her farm manager and her farm manager's significant other) has the most amazing and definitely versatile blog at  Travel, DIY, recipes, sheep and goat knowledge, photographs (most recently new baby cows!) and new yarn...I never miss a post.

Elizabeth Seaver at continues to brighten up my days with her beautiful paintings and her fanciful stories.  Plus she's a good friend.

Tracey Broome at  A talented potter that writes what she thinks and shares so much of her personal insight as well as her fantastic pottery.  One day I will own one of those fantastic barns of hers...

Ron Philbeck at  He often talks about his "heros" on his blog, I have to say he is one of mine.  (Are you blushing Ron?)
British potter Doug Fitch at I finally met him a year ago when he came to the States to teach a couple of workshops.  His pottery is fantastic and he carries quite a tune while playing bass with The Love Daddies!

And Doug's partner in crime on that workshop tour of America, Hannah McAndrew at  If you want to see some beautiful slip trailed pottery, scoot on over to her site for a visit!

NEXT time.  Those seven things.....(Which includes my secret desire to pass on a chain letter.)

Yes, I am blushing. Thank you though, you are too kind.
Do I have to tell 7 things about myself now on my blog? Hum, I'll have to see what I can come up with. Everyone already knows I like to wear Hannah's frock.
