“Style is knowing who you are, what you want to say, and not giving a damn.”


and so said Gore Vidal, and for the most part- all in fact- I agree.

 I can cook- however almost and  always I would rather read about someone who is a fabulous cook-when I can not dine with said cook . that is why and love the blog LINDARAXA by Julieta. She makes the most beautiful, and no doubt delicious delectables, if only I could sample everything.  The charming  24 CORNERS has also dropped this bouquet in my lap, so I am doubly blessed. It is the onset of Awards season-no not the Globes or Oscars- the BLOGS. A swarm of Awards start buzzing around from blog to blog- and -thank you Julieta for the Stylish Blogger Award.
I swore off accepting them for a time  last year-but with the great NEW blogs I have been reading lately-it seems right to spread their Light and share my finds.

Here is what Julieta says "These awards carry a price (with a c not a z!), better known as rules, and they are  as follows:

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you (DONE)

2. Share 7 things about yourself (Not Doing, I share quite enough-too much really)

3. Award 10 other bloggers

4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about the award
(some will be thrilled and they should, always nice to get a nod from one's peers-
and some will just moan- and bemoan -and they should not)

Since the whole point of this is to really spread the love around-
Here are some NEW and perhaps not SO NEW that I am discovering:

& here are some FAVORITES that have returned after a -too long, hiatus.

this list is worth a look , and startling to see such good minds at work. many other wonderful new and always enjoyable reads exist on my What I Read list.



  1. Oh, my! What a wonderful treat after being away this week for business! I fear this award will boomerang its way back to you, as you are top notch, PGT.


  2. Thanks You are the best really got inspired to do this because of you. The world of images whatever discipline they maybe in, is fascinating, exciting and compelling and I wake up everyday to ride that wave.

  3. Thank you so much for the recognition. I'm touched and honored...

  4. Dear Gaye,

    Thank you so much for your support and this delightful surprise! One of the exciting things about blogging is touching in to the passions and worlds of other bloggers, growing through that experience, and being spurred on to share more, and in creative ways. You certainly set the standard.


  5. Thank you for being a sport. We need new blood in the group and you have certainly provided us with a choice few!

  6. Well deserved congratulations. I look forward to the introduction of all these new places to visit!

  7. Julieta, I agree in full. these are all pretty great and thank you.

  8. Beside myself. Delighted. What an honor from the style authority herself!

    Much gratitude,
    All My Eyes

  11. Love seeing lists of the best new blogs - thanks as always! Also enjoyed the music in the newer posts! Hope you're surviving the cold snap! xo

  12. Just discovered your blog and was immediately drawn to an older post, the one on Charleston and Virginia Woolf. I loved reading it and looking at the gorgeous photos. I recently visited Charleston in June, 2010 and was thrilled to finally see it as I have been an admirer of the Bloomsbury group and Virginia Woolf for a long time. I collect Hogarth Press books and Bloomsbury art. Thanks for posting such a gorgeous post on one of my favorite topics!
