Stylish Blog Award

I was so shocked and tickled pink when Miz Helen awarded me with the Stylish Blogger Award.  I mean, I see all these fantabulous blogs out there and then I look at mine…it doesn’t seem very special.  To be honest, I was having a rough day and Miz Helen’s thoughtfulness just lifted my spirits so much.  Thank you my friend!


For anyone that hasn’t visited Miz Helen…RUN, don’t walk, straight over to her blog and I promise you’ll lose track of time reading over all her wonderful posts.  It’s a delight to visit her each week.

7 Things about Me…

1.  My given name is Kim…although I’m considering having it legally changed to Dreamgoddess.  Just kidding!

2.  I’m obsessed with genealogy.  I can happily spend hours looking through old records and newpapers for mention of a family member.   

3.  I’m an avid reader.  My favorite types of stories are fantasy, suspense, thrillers, horror…I love to read Stephen King’s books, but my favorite author is Dean Koontz.

4.  I’m fascinated by anything relating to ancient Greece and Rome.  If I could travel through time, this is where I would choose to visit.

5.  I have a guilty secret pleasure…yes, I’m a Twilight fan.

6.  I would love to own an old Victorian home and fill it up with beautiful antiques. 

7.  I’ve been playing the piano since I was 5 years old.


In the past few weeks, I’ve discovered some new to me bloggers and greatly enjoyed spending time reading their blogs.  So, I’m thrilled to pass on the Stylish Blogger Award to the following:
