Someone Thinks I'm Versatile, Who Knew?

Below is what Margaret, the kind person who presented me with The Versatile Blogger Award, wrote:

I awarded you the Versatile Blogger Award for all of the great information that you provide to the doll community!
I appreciate the award and accept it with great honor.   I am doing what I love to do -- writing about the dolls that warm my heart.  I love sharing information about past and present black dolls.  With computer keyboard, a good word processing program, and the time to do it, I'll write about dolls until I'm old and gray.  At times I feel older than I desire, but dolls keep me young.  So I'll write about them ad infinitum!

Thanks, Margaret.  You're the best!

According to the rules of this award, I am supposed  to share 7 things about myself.

My 7 Things:

1.  I am the married mother of two adult children (I love all three of these people very much.)
2.  I am a loving granny to two beautiful boys whom I love with all my heart and soul.   
3. As indicated above in my award acceptance text, I am passionate about black dolls... enthused about; love, love, love them!
4. I love researching and writing (particularly about dolls).
5.  I have authored two black-doll reference books and own the copyright of a third, soon-to-be published book.
6. My past articles have appeared in Doll Castle News, UFDC's Doll News, Doll Collector (formerly Contemporary Doll Collector), and British Doll Showcase.  The articles are listed here.
7.   I have worked as an allied health professional for 30+ years.

I'd like to pay The Versatile Blogger Award forward to the following fellow bloggers:

1.  Hugs and Keepsakes
2.  A Philly Collector of Playscale and Action Figures
3.  Roxanne's Dolls
4.  I-Luv-Dolls
