Many Gifts for Christmas

Over the past couple of weeks I have received many gifts for Christmas from you my blogging friends. You all are a constant source of inspiration and encouragement but lately you have shown me, and As Time Goes…Buy, much love in gifting a great number of awards.

I sometimes find it overwhelming how kind and generous you all are!

Today I want to thank you all for your on-going support and kindness by properly accepting the awards you have given me and passing on the love to others. Because there are so many, I may not play strictly by the rules but I hope you understand.

In no particular order…

Both Valentina and Serach from Home Designs Master and Shiro51144   have given me the 2012 Blog of the Year Award!

Now that is a lot of girt giving this holiday season!

Usually these awards come with rules for accepting, acknowledge the person who gave it to you, select others to give it to and answer a bunch of questions about yourself. Well, I have acknowledge the lovely ladies who have thought of me so there is a start.

Now the answers to a bunch of questions about myself…

1. Only in the cold weather or under water.

2. Usually orange, sometimes purple and occasionally a dash of turquoise or pink.

3. Three – but they aren’t mine.

4. As the weather warms, white.

5. Only with the top down.

6. Greens, browns, gold and orange…all from Hong Kong.

7. Three majors with a couple of odds for a change. This is the last…I think.

…more than happy to hear your thoughts about what the questions were!


It would be impossible for me to select other blogs that I would give these awards to. I value and appreciate each blog I read and everyone that takes the time to stop by here at As Time Goes…Buy. I have a  huge interest in any number of subjects and many of you cover them very well. I’m afraid if I start listing that there will be someone fabulous I leave out.  Can I suggest you have a look at those who regularly “like” my posts and those who take the time to “comment”, they are fantastic, supportive and fun bunch who would love to have you stop by for a chat at their place.

Sorry to not play by the rules, sometimes I find them too overwhelming. I find all of your kindness and support a pure joy and thank you all for sharing of yourselves and time (the two most precious gifts)!

Happy Holidays and Cheers,


p.s. Don’t forget to tell me what you think the question were to the 7 answers above. The most correct…or just the funniest, will receive a fantastic gift from me!
