‘Stylish Blogger Award’

To my utter surprise and delight, I was recently awarded the “Stylish Blogger Award” by Bette’s Classic Movie Blog, run by the very sweet and very knowledgeable old movie fan named Bette. Thank you so much! I am really honored! :) As part of the award, I am to link back to the person who gave it to me—so please check out Bette’s fabulous blog!

As part of the award I am supposed to share seven random facts about myself, so here goes…

1. Besides just classic films, I also love a lot of old TV shows (from the ‘50s and ‘60s). Perhaps one of these days I will do some posts highlighting my favorites.

2. I spent part of my freshman year at a boarding school. It was both very different and very similar to The Trouble With Angels (love that movie!).

3. I love to read, though I don’t do it as much as I used to. Historical fiction is my favorite genre and my [current] favorite author is Maud Hart Lovelace.

4. I am from a big family, and both my parents grew up in fairly large families. On just my mom’s side I have over 40 first cousins!

5. My favorite movie when I was younger was Seven Brides for Seven Brothers. Our babysitter brought it once and I just thought it was magical.

6. I am a vegan, for a number of reasons. It took some time to get used to eating this way but now I really love it. It’s opened me up to so many new foods that I never would’ve explored otherwise.

7. I think this last one is supposed to be an embarrassing personal anecdote, so… when I was little, I once got my head stuck in a chair. It was one of those chairs that has the vertical posts on the back and for some reason I decided to see if my head would fit between them! :P

Now I must give this award to seven other bloggers. I know some of them may already have received the award—so they obviously don’t have to redo it—but I just want to commend their awesome blogs anyway. :)

  1. Amanda @ A Noodle in a Haystack—the first classic film blog I started reading. I remember being so excited when I discovered such a thing existed…and that other people my age actually watched old movies!
  2. A blogger that always makes me laugh and smile—the stupendous Millie @ ClassicForever.
  3. I love the daily classic movie-related quotes from Niamhy @ Born in the Wrong Decade.
  4. A blogger who always writes unique, insightful, and entertaining posts, Clara @ Via Margutta 51 is one of my favorites.
  5. MC @ Happy Thoughts, Darling is a great writer and reviewer, and always includes lots of beautiful screencaps.
  6. The classic film-related birthdays and links that KC @ Classic Movies posts are always interesting.
  7. E. @ A Classic Escapist Goes to Law School writes in an easy, conversational style and is really fun to read.

Thanks, everyone! :D

Sorry that I haven’t been posting as much lately. Honestly, I just haven’t been watching many classic films to blog about!


  1. Congratulations, Audrey! You truly deserve this award. : )

    About your final "random fact": you should feel comforted to know that you're not the only kid who's had that problem. Believe it or not, I got stuck in a rocking chair one time! I thought it would be fun to crawl under one arm and out under the other. Turns out it wasn't so simple....

    Thank you for sharing the award with me.

  2. Audrey girl, can I give it now back to you?????? I know I'm not supposed to write another post, but I'd totally pick you!! Cool you added MC, yesterday I wanted to put her too in my list of people who hadn't received this award :)
    About your facts: I love "The trouble with angels too, but I don't think I'd had like going to a boarding school (so not sure if that last sentence is grammatically correct!)
    Having the head stuck anywhere is a terrible experience!! I remember that happened to me too, and I was desperate and scared. And when I was like 5 a small metal ring got stuck in my teeth, LOL.

    Greetings from Chile!

  3. Thanks, Clara! I knew you already received the award but I love your blog too much not to put you down. :)

    Yeah, boarding school was not for me either!

    I'm surprised (and relieved) that I'm not the only one who has gotten her head stuck in something. :)

  4. Thanks, Sarah! :)

  5. Thank you, Amanda!

    It's crazy sometimes stuff little kids do. At least it makes for a funny story now. :)

  6. I, too, have gotten my head stuck in a chair. Same thing as you...for some strange reason, I decided to put my head between the vertical posts on the back. I was in panic mode when I couldn't get it back out.

    A large family would be awesome!!! My mom-in-law is one of 13, so my husband has a huge extended family. It was a real challenge for me to make out our wedding invitations, because I wanted to know who everyone was...kind of hard when most of the 13 had 5 kids each.

    I love some old TV shows too...especially The Fugitive and The Streets of San Francisco. The chemistry between Karl Malden and Michael Douglas was awesome!!

    Oh, thanks for the heads-up about some other great classic movie blogs. I love discovering ones I've never visited before.

  7. Congrats!

    My blog is dismal and bland looking compared to others, I try though. =)

  8. It's funny to hear of so many people that have had the same experience of getting their head stuck! Who would've thought?

    I do like being part of a big family (most of the I can understand what it's like with the wedding invitations. My sister recently got married and she faced the same situation.

    I've not seen the two shows you mentioned. I'll have to check them out some time. Usually I tend more towards sitcoms, but I do enjoy Perry Mason and those type of shows.

  9. You have a GREAT blog, Elisa! :)

  10. Thank you so much, Audrey! I'm so behind on my blog reading this week that I just now saw this, but I'm very grateful for your kind words. :-)

    Looking forward to coming up with 7 random facts about myself. Hmm...

    Thanks again!


  11. I look forward to reading your post. :)
