I'm so excited to have received my very first blog award from The Art of Clothes (who by the way is a very talented seamstress with a killer blog so you really should check it out if you haven't yet) and I am incredibly honored! Thank you Anna Kristine!

Along with this award, list 7 things that make You Awe-Summm then pass the award on to 7 bloggers you love.- Tag your recipients (so they know they've won) & link back to the Queen that tagged you.

1. I can get just about any stain out of clothing using either 21st century or 19th century laundry methods.

2. I can talk on the phone above any level of kid noise in the background and still follow the conversation.

3. I can read most novels in a day (Twilight, by the way, I'm not lovin' it - sorry teens).

4. I can block a play all on paper.

5. I have a photographic memory and can remember where I have seen a certain word on a specific page or screen and how it is spelled.

6. I can recite a full theatrical audition in under 5 minutes with varying monologues, including Shakespeare.

7. I can command the attention of a classroom of 30 students and keep them engaged for 45 minutes of history lecture (well, on a good teaching day anyway - 4 year olds, however, now that is a different story :)

I pass this award onto:
Congrats on your great blogs! I enjoy reading all your posts and sharing your lives in some small way :)!

Oh thank you so much! I will try to post this...not sure how to link things though. I am so far behind on computer skills. I may have to get a teenager to guide me through it!

Thank you very much for this award :) Once I can fulfill the conditions demanded I will post it!

What a fun award to get and to pass around!

Have you already, or will you post all of your stain-fighting techniques for the different stains? I would love to have them. I have been currently using Fels Naptha soap for this and loving it.

Thanks Zebu!

Fels Naptha is a great kept laundry secret. I also use baking soda & club soda to bubble out blood or wine, and Sudz & Dudz makes a wool soap that will take out grease stains. A 19th century technique that works for grease stains is to sprinkle on Fuller's Earth, let it sit, and brush it off. The earth will absorb the grease and remove the stain. HTH!

Thank you much--I just added it to my laundry folder. :0)
