Marie Antionette Awards

Hi Everyone,

The lovely Jeannette has awarded me one of these awards (see my sidebar). They are for real people with real journals. I found it quite hard to choose my seven but seeing as a choice had to be made, here we go.

Antonella is fairly new to journalling but I find her journal interesting and refreshing.

Kara lives in Arizona and is a young Mum of two young children. Shes always sounds so cheerful and I look forward to her entries.

Missie tells all about her family in her journal. I`m always interested in what she has to say.

What can I say about the lovely Angie`s journal. Despite health problems she never complains and laces her entries with her own brand of humour. She never fails to make me laugh. On top of that, and I hope she won`t mind me saying, she`s a great cook and cake decorator and her dessert`s and cakes look delicious.

Now you all know Ally, she is another one who has a great sense of humour. What can I say, I just love her journal as does all her visitor and friends.

Linda lives in Washington and her journal is often about her road trips across America. You can learn so much from her journal and she takes great photos of her travels. If you haven`t already, please go and visit.

Joan often posts beautiful scenic photos of the mountains and lochs of Scotland where she lives. She talks about her day to day life and from her main journal there are links to her birdwatching and book journals. I enjoy reading her entries very much.

Here are the rules:

1. Please put the logo on your journal - Real People - Real Blogs.

2. Place a link from the person, from whom you received the award.

3. Nominate at least 7 if you can.

4. Put the links of those on your journal.

5. Leave a message on their journal to let them know.

6. Put the award on your sidebar/journal.

Changing the subject. The other week I gave my desk a good clear up. When I emptied out the caddy that holds all my pens, pencils etc. I had a good laugh at the strange things that had accumulated over time. I thought I`d tell you what I found.

a newspaper cutting

2 business cards...sorry make that 3

a receipt for a window blind

3 marker pens that no longer work

1 gold and 1 silver gel pens

1 pencil that hasn`t been used

a stapler

a box of staples

a reel of sellotape

a harmonica.....honest!

a glue stick

an eraser

a compass cum whistle cum magnifying glass cum mirror

2 Tippex`s`, 1 usable the other not

a small handbell

a small length of wire

a pair of tweezers

half a pair of glasses....yes, I said half!!!

14 pens that all write

And last but not least...a fly swatter!

Do you have something unusual on your computer desk? :o))

Anyway, I`m not talking about me today apart from saying son and girlfriend visited yesterday evening and I DO NOT want to talk about it. I`ll just pack the experience away in a small compartment in my mind and will take it out again! Bye Bye and take care. :o)


  1. Was happy to give you the award Sandra. Poor Joan, that is three times she has got it ROFL. All your choices are good ones. The ones I do not know I must visit.

    I have drawers under my bed, not been done out in a long time, did them today. I shall definitely NOT list what I found, unbelievable lol

  2. That's a very pretty award! I'm looking at my desk now and I'm realizing how much cleaning I have to do! LOL! Something unusual? Ummm...hand lotion? And about a thousand pens/pencils. LOL!
    Can't wait to hear about son's've got my curiousity up.

  3. Thank you so much for the award it was so kind of you to think of me. When I was reading you list of things when you emptied your pen caddy I thought the only thing missing was A Partridge in a pear tree lol. Love Joan

  4. Thanks ever so for the award Sandra. Do you mind if I add it in tomorrow when I figure out how!

    What a whopping great big caddy you must have for your bits and pieces! As a born nosey parker though I love to hear about the odd things people keep and the odd places they keep them!

    love Angie, xx

  5. Hi Sandra, Thank you very much for the award. I was going to nominate you as well, but you were already nominated by Jeannette and so on...Do you mind if I do not pass it on again? It was already an "ordeal" the first time trying to figure out who was already nominated and not...
    I won't even start talking about my desk! I might take your suggestion and starting decluttering. I'm so ashamed that I have to do something to "punish" myself for my being so untidy. I might take a picture and publish it in my blog and be subjected to public derision!!!
    Thanks again, Sandra, and sleep well. Ciao. Antonella

  6. My desk is a tip Sandra! I've got a make up bag, tweezers, mirror, various letters that need answering, three pairs of glasses, some photos I printed, A paper wallet, a diary, a lump of volcanic rock from Hawaii, a padded envelope, a lamp, tissues and some holiday brochures! It's homely! I got that award from Joan, glad you got one too! Jeannette xx

  7. That's a heck of a lot for just the pen holder Sandra lol

  8. Congratulations on that award, Sandra! LOL..I've just been looking around the computer desk.
