I recieved - The Versatile Blogger Award

Thank you Emma from Daydreams and Colours for nominating me for The Versatile Blogger Award.... my first one and it's greatly appreciated. :)

So, the rules of The Versatile Blogger Award are that I write 10 things about myself and nominate some other blogs that I love (and are versatile)... so here goes.

1. I'm originally from Melbourne and grew up there, I went to London when I was 21 (for a few years), then I moved to Sydney. I know Melbourne people will think I must have lost my mind but I love Sydney! I do miss lovely old Melbourne town though....sigh!

2. I was totally nuts about Duran Duran when I was 16yrs old!! shhhh... don't tell anyone... I still am :)

3. When I was little, I was totally obsessed with Barbie... not to play with her but to make her clothes! She had such a fantastic wardrobe, I really wished it was mine!! :)

4. I studied fashion design and was a fashion designer in my younger years (in the late 80's). I sold my designs in shops on Greville St and Chapel St in Prahan, Melbourne, it was SO much fun!

5. I absolutely love animals, especially cats - when we are out and about, my partner is constantly amazed at how I seem to have x-ray vision for spotting cats 1,000 miles away... in bushes, on fences, looking out of windows etc...

6. I can't tell jokes at all!! I do try, to my partners dismay... there is a lot of eye rolling going on!

7. I absolutely love colour, but I tend to wear A LOT of black and grey!

8. I can spend hours and hours in art, book, fabric and yarn shops... to me this is pure heaven!

9. I'm a complete sucker for a real tear jerker romantic movie! I always end up a big soggy mess on the end of the couch... love it!

10. I think I am the luckiest person in the world to be with my wonderful partner and be a mum to my beautiful little boy... I couldn't ask for anything more :)

I nominate these lovely bloggers for The Versatile Blogger Award:

    p.p.s. Wow, fashion design! That's so awesome - do you have any photos of your work?

  2. Congrats on your first (well deserved) blogging award! I'm off to visit the blogs you've passed it on to :)

    And thank you so much for nominating me... after the craziness of the holidays dies down I will have to think of some things to say about myself ;-)

  6. Thanks so much for nominating me Lamina. I've been away so have only just been able to blog about it..and it took me SOOOOO long to think of 10 things! Fingers crossed readers don't get bored half way through :-P

  7. Your work is amazing, everything I see I just love.
    Everyone in your life is very blessed to have you apart of theirs.
