Stylish Blogger Award

Pin It

I have just been honored with the Stylish Blogger Award from my friend Libby Wilkie at An Eye For Detail.  Great, now I have a good excuse for a glass of champagne!

I am not the sort who wins things easily, even when I make an extraordinary effort, so an award, any award, is a real thrill.  Thank you Libby!

The Stylish Blogger Award is given by bloggers to other bloggers in recognition of....well, I guess being stylish and having a stylish blog, what else!

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

2. Share 7 things about yourself

3. Award to 10 other bloggers (I thought it was 7!)

4. Contact those bloggers and tell them about the award

So, here are 7 random things about me:

1. I grew up in Havana, Cuba.

2. I hate to exercise but I'm a respectable bridge player

3. I'm a direct descendant of a French corsair

4. I went to school with Glenn Close...and Libby Wilkie

5.  Edith Piaf once sang to me in private

6.  I had my appendix out during my honeymoon and spent seven days in the hospital

7. I sleep with a Westie

And now I give the award to these stylish bloggers, not necessarily in any preferential order:

10. Braebourne Farm 

So here's to you, ladies and gentlemen...may this be one of many, many more!


  1. Linda, congratulations on your well-deserved win of the Stylish Blogger award. Thank yo so much for including me in the list of bloggers you chose to share it with. Thanks so much. Blessings...Mary

  2. How excellent,I am honored to have this from you , and to be with such prestigious company, several that would be on my 10 list! (no surprise there) I may just cut and paste your introduction and 7 things-very glamorous-except for the appendix snafu on the honeymoon-however you did have one- I did not! a heartfelt xo, Gaye

  3. So glad to see you are taking this all quite seriously!
    How I wish I could sleep with a Westie too!!!
    Did you read the comments on my post? Seems I am spreading the word about Lillet...maybe more restaurants will start carrying it now!

  4. Hello Julieta -- I was writing you to tell you I like your style and that I was passing the Stylish Blogger award to you. But, someone has beat me to it, I'm not surprised!

    Anyway, as you know, I have added you to my blog roll, thank you for including me on yours.

    Please keep up all of the great posts -- I know my Splendid Readers will enjoy Lindaraxa.

    Congratulations x2!

  5. Thank you so much Julieta!
    I am honoured that you picked me! :)
    and I'm in great company I see!
    Many many thanks both for this, and for all your DIVINE recipes!


    PS. I love your random things!
    I hate to exercise too, but play no bridge. I haven't any Noble French lineage (at least that I'm aware of) but I believe my mother once drove a Corvair :)
    I went to school with no one famous, but David Bowie and Annie Lennox both patted my stomach when I was pregnant and I still have my appendix!

  6. Reggie is all a-blush to be so honored. Thank you, m'dear. And at least 7 on your list would be found on mine. Does that mean I only need come up with three? RD

  7. Well really- just loving Lucy shows me your style..but you know how much I adore your sites. You are a special sweetie and everyone loves bad its not a crown, Lucy would look great in a crown...francy and @MissBusyBiz

  8. How very kind of you. Without meaning to appear ungrateful, I've already completed something similar before, and I would hate to become irritating by warbling on about myself. If I can concoct something clever instead, I will do so.

    I really am touched by your gesture!

  9. Much deserved, that Stylish Blogger award!
    Loved your list of random things too.

  10. Congratulations! You are stylish and very entertaining. I loved reading your 7 things and think you could make up a wonderful story by linking each one together without any other facts (heaven forbid!). There you have the bones of a real adventure novel! I was already in love with your last name, and now, will think of you and Captain Cadenas locked together for many a merry escapade. As for Edith Piaf, I do envy your private serenade! Thank you very much for having named my blog - despite the fact that it has been snoozing a bit lately. I am up to a toast. Cheers!!


Thank you for visiting Lindaraxa. Your comments are much appreciated.
