Liebster blog Award

What a nice surprise I found in my inbox this morning.  Natalie from When life hands you a pear gave me this award.  I giggled when I read what she said about me on her reasons for choosing me as one of the recipients ...

Wendy from Simply Sassy has a ladylike style and is a great source of positive thinking and…well…sassiness!

This award is given to bloggers with fewer than 200 followers by other bloggers.
The rules for accepting the award and posting the widget are to:
  1. Link back to the giver and express your heartfelt, undying gratitude. : )
  2. Pass it to five more bloggers, letting them know it’s been given.
  3. Copy and paste said award to your blog.
  4. Keep the love flowing. They’ll tell five friends, and they’ll tell five friends, and…so on…
So, I’d like to share this award with some of the bloggers I appreciate:

Ally at Shybiker because of her enthusiasm and joy about fashion and womanhood that the rest of us often take for granted.  Watching her venture out in our world has made me appreciate the priviledge I have of living my life freely as a woman.

Patti at Not Dead Yet Style is just so stylish and fabulous at 50 something always looks so stylish and her smile is killer!

Margaret at Too few beacons has such a young sassy style and I love her hair.  So much to enjoy at her blog.

Lynette from Creative Moments because she's such a real person, with an amazing heart who deals with all that life has thrown at her with love and grace and despite all the demands on her, she finds the time to scrapbook the most awesome pages.

Alison from Whispered Comfort, for her inspiring posts, wonderful photos (and kitties) and her awesome scrapbook layouts as well.

I thought I should share these two pairs of shoes ... as I may have mentioned, my black 'court' shoes were at the end of their life, I'm quite fussy and when the front has been worn off (I'm really tough on shoes) it's time to replace them.  This means I'm on the hunt.  I haven't found an 'everyday' pair as yet, but I got these yesterday for R90!!  Marked down from R250 originally, then to R200 and then R90.  Bargain and score.  I also quite like the 'pink' soles.

Kitty inspecting them ... wonder if they passed?

 Then this pair below is what my little people bought me the Sunday they were supposed to leave.  Jarod and I had popped off to Edgars on the Saturday to get him a pair of track pants and of course, I had to go past the shoe dept.  I'd seen these shoes previously and tried them on again.  On the Sunday, when we returned to do some shopping for Courteney, he decided to buy them for me.  They're all aware of my shoes weakness and he thought they were fabulous ... train them young ;-)

Well, it's now past midnight and I'm feeling super tired ... we ended up going out for dinner with my sister and bil and just got home about a half hour ago.  We have a fabulous time ... I do so love impromptu affairs.

Enjoy your last day of 2011 ... keep it Simply Sassy
