A Lovely Blog Award from Marelie

Thank you, Marelie.
I've received this lovely blog award from Marelie at Cookie Droplets Etc.  She has a wonderful blog which I highly recommend that you visit.  She doesn't just post recipes.  She gives us a complete background on the recipes, exotic ingredients, Filipino foods, customs and history, so it is highly educational.  She is a lovely person too who always has a kind word, and you have probably noticed her participating in my weekly recipe blog parties on Mondays and Thursdays.

Thank you so much for this lovely award, Marelie.

Rules for accepting the award:
1. Post linking back to the person that gave you the award
2. Share 7 random things about yourself
3. Award 15 recently discovered blogs
4. Drop them a note and tell them about it.

Now its time to share 7 random things about me:
  1. I like beauty like roses, irises, paper whites, elegant teacups, lavish tablescapes, stained glass windows, delicate lace, etc.
  2. I like the sounds of birds singing, trees rustling, brooks babbling.
  3. I like the feel of a soft breeze or rain on my face.
  4. I like the smell of the ocean, freshly mowed grass, rain, a Paris bakery, peonies, lilies of the valley, lavender, and lilacs.
  5. I like ice cream, coffee, almonds, lemons and limes, strawberries, mint, basil, and vanilla.
  6. I like animals like dogs, cats, horses, chickens, rabbits and cows.
  7. I like the busy streets and elegance of Paris, the lazy picnics of Provence, the euphoric air of Italy, the surf of Malibu and Menton, the peace and quiet of my country-by-the-city backyard, the contrasts of San Francisco, the opulence of Atlanta, the lushness of Hawaii, the green trees of Oregon, the colors of the Arizona and Nevada deserts.
