A major award…

antique trophyFor the first time in the history of Southern Belle Simple, I’ve been given a blog award!  


The Rules:
1. Thank the person who gave you this award.
2. Share 7 things about yourself.
3. Pass the award along to 7 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic!
4. Contact the bloggers you've picked and let them know about the award.

Many thanks to Tracey from Tales of Little Bitty for bestowing a blogger award on yours truly. I've been a follower of her blog for a bit now and I love to see what that sweet baby Jack is up to! Now for the seven magical disclosures about myself...

1. I'm a bona fide pack-rat and have to force myself to purge my closets regularly lest become a hoarder.

2. As a child, I memorized an entire book of Shel Silverstein poetry and can still recite most of the poems to this day.

3. I was googling family names the other day and ended up finding my 19th great-grandfather Philip de Hampton who lived in England in the 13th century.

4. Smell is my dominant sense...I smell everything (often an annoyance to the folks who know me).

5. I would love to have an art studio where all my art stuff can live in one easily accessible spot (it is currently stored away in lots of nooks and crannies).

6. I rode to my high school prom in a green Plymouth Acclaim with at least one hubcap missing and I wouldn't have wanted it any other way.

7. I am so obsessed with health and beauty products that when I was in London, I skipped out of touring the British Museum to go to a drugstore and buy make-up!

Rachel of Southern Swaps

Bella Michelle of Southern Somedays

Same Sweet Girl of Memoir of a Southern Belle
