I want to thank my fellow blogger, Sheila, whose blog is Style Agent 909
for honoring me with the Liebster Award.
I feel honored and want to pay it forward.
But before I do that, I'd like to give a shout out to Shiela's blog.
I came across her blog because of the post "I See Dead People"
It's an awesome post. I thought I was the only one who liked cemetaries,
but she shows I am not alone and how special they are.
As for her blog, it centers around how to style second-hand clothes into fashionable outfits.
She does a great job in showing it does not have to be expensive to be fashionable.

1. List 11 facts about myself
2. Reveal a little about myself by answering Shiela's questions,
3. Name 11 new awardees (and notify them of the award)
