I'm flattered, I'm speechless, I thank you.
Oh wow, you do awards so well ... I get in such a state trying to choose who to pass them on to that I just don't now...hat's of honey.I've got a post coming up that was shot out front of the house with the aqua doors pictured here. Unfortunately it's not real clear, I've worked on it but still not great.Your Mom sounds so lovely,xoxo
I enjoyed your list. It's so fun to get to 'really' know the heart, soul, past, and present of the people that we don't even know by face. I think it must be a little like being blind...it makes us want to find other ways to 'see' the person with whom we communicate.Congratulation on your awards - they are well deserved.
whew... now that was a post! bravo for accepting your awards... you absolutely deserve each and everyone... and i will LOVE meeting you someday soon... and i cannot believe you are from snohomish... come back! xx
shoot ... now you're the gracious goddess as well. kudos, champ, on all of those wonderful accolades! (and thanks so very much for visiting the ole porkster; even once made it a better place.) loved this post -- so cool to learn some little known insights into what makes Dumbwit Tellher tick. stay inspired, DT!
I say enjoy them as they are well-deserved. Speading all that blog love can only be a good thing which reminds me I have some to catch up on too. Have the best weekend. XO
Dear DebCongratulations on your many awards.. all so well deserved. It is always great to pop over here and be entertained with your fabulous humour, informative posts and stunning images!! Like all your posts you have managed to bring style to this one also.. Great to hear a bit more about you Deb.. and even the things you wish you could do!! I think what we wish for does make up who we are... Love the family photo!! Take care and congrats again... xx Julie
Thank you, I'm extremely honored! It was wonderful to learn more about you. I love the Olympic hair cut connection. But you had me at the motorcycle picture!
Your mother sounds like a wonderful person. That's her in the photo? She was lovely and glamorous, and how right she was to sing loud. For being her daughter, I hereby pronounce you an honorary Irishwoman.
You deserve every one of those awards lovely! And I LOVED reading about you and your childhood! Those descriptions along w/ the pictures really made it all come alive.
Love learning more about you daaaaaahling. Congrats on your awards, you totally deserve them.I understand the DrPepper thing, mine is diet coke LOL. And Krispy Kremes are my crack (wish it was architecture, then i might be thinner).Have a wonderful weekend.*kisses* HH
aaaaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhh!!!! i don't know what to say/write!??!?! i'm just rocking back and forth in my chair with my thumb in my mouth with honor. you are hysterical and beyond creative. so funny as i was reading yours i was thinking to myself "damn she's so good, i could never do this." and then bam there's my silly name. i'll try to not embarrass you. i'm going to go binge eat first. love to you goddess,katie
Oh my Deb. I am speechless... and honored and WOW! I love that you are finally embracing your accolades. The minute I first landed here, I was lifted-up by your authentic wit and absolute fabulous ability to connect! I thank you. ox
I can't say Snohomish sober, let alone after a martini. Loved your post. I had forgotten about the Dorothy Hammil hair cut. ;)
darling Deb I have had a busy busy week and more to come! I loved reading your post, the images and so on. You are such an interesting kind person. And in so many ways you love what I love. And thank you so much for passing on that award to me, it is very kind. I would be happy with just one reader if it was you!!! xoxoxox
Bonjour Deb,Congratulations on your well deserved awards and your list was so great, especially your sweet little hat and your beautiful mother.You did a great job on your acceptance speech/post - you have such a grand way with words!Bon weekend
Congrats Deb!Your tombstone is too funny!!!oops~ that doesn't sound right, death & funny shouldn't be in the same sentence no?!Whahhh...Great weekend beautiful!xo
DEar Deb,Well done on all of the wonderful awards that have been bestowed upon you. You certainly are a popular girl !I love your 7 things. I too miss both of my parents everyday. I love the photo of you with your mum and dad and, I wish that I had been there to see your permed hair. Have you got a close up shot of that somewhere in your archives ?!! Haha.Love to you and Graham and am thinking of you. Take care Deb. XXXX
I loved you before I knew 7 things about you, and now I love you more.xo xo
This was a great read Deb, what a good post....well done on all your awards.I love reading the 7 things about you too :)I just wanted to say thank you so much for the lovely comments you have left me recently - and for the lovely comment you left my friend Jenni, she was so touched - your words are so heartfelt and I wanted to let you know how much I appreciate them.Best wishes to you :)
Good work Deborah! You won a ton of awards. Be proud (humble, whatever) everyone loves you so much!Love the photo of your mother in the hat. When my mother died, we found the entire top shelf of her closet filled with hats! I don't think I have worn one more than three times this year. (And hats for warmth only don't count)But mostly I loved that Apollo Ohno's dad gave you a haircut!!! I mean, how small a world is this???
This was a fun blog.#1 Love Mamma and the Hat.#2 I am a Dr Pepper fan.#3 Like happy Celtic music and hope to hear a good band this month.#4 I had the Hamill haircut and loved it then came the wedge cut love it.Great postyvonne
Hi Deb,This was a great post. We must be soul mates in the sense that my tombstone will read the same thing. I just included that love in a post coming this week. Right now we are dealing with the slow death of my Grandmother and I can see the toll it is taking on my Mother. If the advice is something that would help her please send it to me.xx,Marianne
What a great post, you have such wonderful wit, I am sure that an evening out with you must not be dull! I enjoy dropping by immensely...and was very interested to hear that Apolo Ohno's father does hair. I loved watching him (Apolo) at the Olympics.You deserve every award and more,Nathalie
Love your childhood home...sure would love to see some pics of the fried permed hair! Been there and done that myself! Tracey xx
Great list! What does one like me, have to do to get such award? It has now become my dream to get a blog award, but it seems that no one will give it to me :(Great post, as always :)Have a great weekendMaria
What a witty and clever post. Congrads on all the awards and it is so fun to hear more about the author of a blog. Good stuff.xo,Christina
I love your 7, Deb! Your mother sounds like such a confident woman, the type of woman who reminds me of my own mother (who is 6'2", wore heels and sings louder than anyone I know!)
Thank you so much, Deb!You're too kind!Since you did give us a choice, I picked the Sunshine Award. I personally think it looks better, you know, with the orange daisy against the blue sky... And I think it will aesthetically compliment my blog page a bit more than the other one would.But that's just trivial stuff! What REALLY matters to me is that you continue to appreciate my blog like you do. Just having you as both a dedicated Follower and a regular commenter makes me happy, but to now also receive a 2nd award from you... Well, I just can't express how honored and fortunate I feel that someone appreciates my writing, humor and overall sense of fun enough to go out of their way to acknowledge it. And not just once, but TWICE!Thanks, again, Dumbwit Deb!You totally made my day!AnthonyPop Circus RingleaderP.S. -Your Unknown 7 were great! That snow-covered "perm house" was beautiful.I, too, cannot relate to those who say they have no regrets. I think they're lying!Mid-Century Modern is THE stuff, man. Did I ever mention to you that I live just a few blocks away from an entire neighborhood of Eichler homes? Many of them are owned by people who have lovingly restored the homes to their former glory, just like new!And your mother... What a dear, sweet lady she must have been. Judging by that photo, she sure was pretty! And quite stylish, I might add! The shiny apple doesn't fall far from the tree, eh? ;)
i loved reading about you!! i want more!!
Congratulations on the well deserved awards my sweet friend. You bless so many people with your sweet kind words and your lovely blog.Darling, I popped in to see how you are doing and to thank you for the popping in for a visit and leaving lovely comments behind even when I am unable to return the visit and you can imagine my shock when I saw your post. My friend, I am so honoured to receive this award from you and thank you for this eloquently written paragraph about me. I am totally speechless and teary eyes. I am sending you a million thanks folded in a huge embrace and laced with endless love my friend. It is my honour to call you that… a friend. Thank you. I will post this award on my blog and will cherish and treasure it forever. Love & HugsDucness
Congrats on all the awards! You truly deserve them and it was such a treat to read the 7 facts about you! I had no idea you were that addicted to Dr. Pepper ;-) And I admire you for being able to fish... that's one of those things I could never get in to (bored me to bits!).
Such fun to read, Deb!Being from the Pacific Northwest myself, I'm happy to say that I can easily pronounce Snohomish... even after a few drinks (I think!). Spelling it... that's another matter. I actually had to scroll back up to your post to copy and paste it!!Loved the memories you shared about your Mom. I lost my Mom 5 years ago and miss her so very much.And while I can't say that mid-century modern is an addiction for me, I can say that I LUV it very much and can totally, totally see the appeal!Victoria @ DesignTies

Congrats on your well deserved awards Deb, you are so interesting and utterly delightful! I know you are going through a difficult time and want you to know we all care so much about you, your mom seemed amazing and she must have been to have a daughter like you, I know she is proud.xoxo
