May I Have Your Attention Please?

Forget the Oscars, the BAA's (Blogger Appreciation Awards) is much more exciting. I was given this award by Jean over at Dross Into Gold. Thanks Jean!
I'm telling ya', if you've got a piece of clothing that you think has seen the end of the line, consult Jean before you do anything drastic, like throwing it away. She does wonders with this stuff and turns them into wearable, fashionable, drool worthy garments. 

 Here's what I need to do before accepting the award:
1.  Thank the person who nominated me by linking his/her blog.
2.  Answer the four questions below
3.  Award the Blogger Appreciation Award to fellow bloggers
4.  Let the Bloggers know that you have nominated them.
  1. How long have you been blogging?
  2. Why did you start blogging?
  3. What type of blogs do you like to follow/read?
  4. What is the one thing you’d like to improve on as a blogger?
1) I started my blog in January of 2012. It was a resolution of sorts.
2) Blogging is a way for me to connect with other thrift store shoppers and see how they style their fabulous finds.
3) For now, I only follow personal style blogs but I wouldn't mind checking out a few decorating blogs as well.
4) Lately, I'm trying to improve on letting my photos do the talking. They're supposed to be worth a thousand words right?

Now for the hard part, new awardees:

Evil Dress Maker
Practical Paralegalism
Pink Calico
Shy Biker
These are all fun ladies, that I wish lived nearby because I know they'd super fun to hang out with...Oh well... I'll settle for reading their blogs, it's the next best thing!


  1. So cool, you deserve this. I need to check out Jean's blog I have some items I am thinking about donating that I might be able to turn into something wearable and stylish!! :-)

  2. Oh, WOW! I'm the first one to comment! This never happens to me. What do I say, what do I do? :D

    I'm super honored that you even read my little corner of the budget career style universe, and will simply say thanks, not just for the award, but for giving me post material to schedule for next week while I'm on vacay :P

  3. Congratulations Sheila! I do have fun following you!

  4. Congrats on the award, I can't wait to read more posts. Thanks for stopping by.

  5. Congrats! nice to get awards, i got 2, did not do my bit - so busy lately -


  6. Congratulations, Sheila! And thanks for passing on the honor.

    I like your answers. You seem to be blogging for the right reasons. It saddens me when I see people blog for wrong reasons: they inevitably burn out and disappear. Blogging is hard work, but rewarding and worth the effort. I'm enjoying your blog a lot!

  7. Excellent! Congratulations. I love your blog!

  8. Congratulations on your well deserved award, Sheila. And I've learned about some new and fabulous blogs! Thank you.

  9. You've got my attention. Congrats on your award! Woot!

  10. I have been out of the loop, so I'm late to comment (and only by means of my phone!) but thank you for your kind words! You are a thrifter after my own heart and hopefully we'll be able to connect in person one day. Coffee and Goodwill, maybe?
