A Major Award

Petra Bellejambes of Voyages en Rose fame bestowed a major award upon yours truly: the Beautiful Blogger Award.

Sure I am a "blogger," but I dunno about the "beautiful" part. However, I am honored to receive recognition for this little spot on the Internet. Thank you, Petra, for the tribute.

The award does come with the some responsibilities.

1. I must thank the person who bestowed this honor upon me. Thank you again, Petra.

2. Copy the award and place it on my blog. Done.

3. Link to the bestowers’ site. Done.

4. Enumerate seven interesting things about yourself. Here they are:
  • I own 64 pairs of shoes; two male pairs, 62 female pairs.
  • I am such a perfectionist, i.e., anal retentive, that I actually counted my shoes before I wrote the previous entry.
  • I attended the original Woodstock Music & Art Fair back in 1969.
  • My first book sold enough copies to pay off the mortgage on my first house.
  • I have an excellent sense of humor.
  • I am a left-wing liberal and an atheist.
  • I wanted to be a female impersonator when I grew up.
5. Nominate seven bloggers that you find beautiful. Here are my nominees for the Beautiful Blogger Award (in alphabetical order):
All seven of my nominees are bloggers, who are classically beautiful and most deserving of the award. Congratulations to them all.


  1. So well deserved, and beauty you have, my dear. Please keep up your daily "Femulate Her" feature. I get a lot of style inspiration here. I am off to visit some of your recommended blogs now.

    Happy newish year...

  2. Thank you, Staci
    And the work that you do for the community is truly "Beautiful"

  3. Staci, you listed my little blog in a group with some of the best T-blogs in the world. I certainly do not qualify for Petra's award, but I so appreciate the thought. Thank you so much.

    @Petra - Staci should, indeed, be honored for maintaining a quality blog for such a long time. Thanks for doing so. The quality never drops and her blog is one I keep reading year after year. Perhaps you should give yourself the award. Your blog is another quality blog that deserves recognition.

  4. Staci,

    Congratulations, the award is definitely very well deserved, and you are definitely beautiful. In fact, before writing this I did a search on a well-known search engine (it rhymes with Frugal) for the word beautiful and it said "See 'Staci'" and the only image result was a picture of you! Therefore it must be true. Well done on the fantastic blog. Like Petra, I also look to your wonderful 'Femulate Her' section for fashion inspiration, as well as the rest of the blog simply for a darned good read.

    Best wishes,


  5. Petra --- Thank you. If you had not already won the award, I would have nominated you myself.

  6. Diana --- Thank you, and the same goes for you, too!

  7. Calie --- You are welcome and most definitely deserving.

  8. Jayne --- Your very kind words made me blush; thank you so much!
