Stylish Blogger Award

This month I was doubly fortunate, when "Orchid de Dangau" and "Deb's Garden" generously awarded "The Bunnies Buffet" with a "Stylish Blogger Award".

Makarimi has an incredible gift for growing orchids, along with other wonderful exotic plants in Malaysia.  It never ceases to amaze me when I connect with a fellow garden enthusiast half way across the world.  Blotanical once again was the catalyst for networking garden bloggers.

Deb has an incredible landscape that she has transformed over time.  She has woodland gardens I can only dream of.  Deb's blog brings you along as seasons change and her garden's evolve.  Her photo galleries are a treasure trove of information and beauty.

Along with the award, there are a few duties that come along with.....

1.)  Recognition to those that gave me the award (so easy to do!)
2.)  7 Random things about me... (hum, I'll have to think about that)
3.)  Award 15 fellow bloggers with the "Stylish Blogger Award"
4.)  Drop the awarded nominees a note to let them know they were recognized

7 Random things about me:

"Stylish" even in my youth?!
1.)  I've become OCD about garden planning in 2011 - sketching & reading like a maniac
2.)  Corporate construction project management was my favorite job - ever
3.)  I'm hoping to re-create a peaceful sanctuary in my backyard over the next few years - because nothing breathes life back into me faster than a few solitary moments enjoying a gentle breeze and beautiful landscape
4.)  I gave up my motorcycle when I found out I was pregnant with my oldest - an easy sacrifice
5.)  I'm a guppy for a fun software program, but will go into a coma if I have to read anything technical (like a tech.manual or a contract's terms & conditions)
6.)  Macro-photos of plants stop me in my tracks;  simply incredible
7.)  Music - of all kinds - rocks my world & sooths the savage beast (when I get beastly!)

Now, other bloggers that you should check out as "Stylish Bloggers" (in random order):

There is so much talent on the Blogosphere!  Thanks for your inspiration, your creativity and your sense of humor.  It's a really cool place to hang out!!

Peace out......

  4. Shyrlene, first congratulations on your award, and for being gifted TWICE!!! AWESOME! Second, I love that fact that you're fave job is corp construction PM...I'm in construction also...residential for 7 years and commercial for 4. Just one more thing we have in common!

  5. Hi Shrylene, thanks so much for the kind words and links back to my blog!

    I really enjoyed learning more about you. Corporate construction sounds like a difficult job; I'm in wonderment of folks who can do that sort of thing! You listed several blogs I am not familiar with, so I am looking forward to checking them out.

  10. Aw, thanks for the Award Shyrlene! How fun! Congratulations yourself on the Award - you accept well (no f-bombs) and graciously! I'm the same with you on #4 but I gave up my boat (but now I have a bigger one). I hope you get your #3, that sounds so nice - a wonderful goal! I liked your #6 and #7 too... rock on girl!

  11. Thank you Shyrlene!!! :) I especially love seeing all your garden planning...

  12. Shyrlene - congratulations on the award! Enjoyed seeing the young you. And I hope you can achieve that peaceful sanctuary you desire. Also, I was delighted to have been listed! Thank you. I agree that there is a lot of talent out there, and so many beautiful garden blogs. Thanks again for thinking of me.

  13. You are a sweetie to nominate me! Thank you so much!

  14. Congrats for being awarded this twice! I loved learning a little more about you. I wish I would do better planning like it sounds like you are doing. I'm also a huge music lover and love when I get a chance to be alone in the car and really turn it up loud.
    Thank you so much for thinking of me! :)

  15. Hi Shyrlene, you are sweet to add me here my friend. I'm pretty bad about doing these kinds of 'memes' on my blog...but I really appreciate your thoughtfulness;-) I enjoyed reading a bit about you, though. I know I should try it some time...I just don't like to write stuff about myself publicly! I will add this to a page I have for awards and when the time is right perhaps I'll do a post...down the road...and I'll let you know if I do. Thanks again;-)
