One Lovely Blog Award

One Lovely Blog Award

What a nice surprise!

This weekend the ‘One Lovely Blog Award’ was sent my way 🙂

Thank you so much to Heather from grillfusion for the nomination!

If you haven’t stopped by grillfusion, you really must! I mean seriously, you have see Heather’s DIY Name Plate Sign. Looove this sign! Not to mention Heather’s road-side find Cabinet Restoration. And there’s so much more! So make sure you pop by to say, hi!

In honour of this award, I have to share 7 things about myself with you! And you know what? It’s harder than you think to come up with 7 things… I might have over-shared here, here, and here! 😉

But here goes…

  • I love canned pears, but have never tried canning them myself, until this summer…

  • I don’t like snakes, NOT. ONE. BIT! In fact, they terrify me 😐 But, according to Chinese astrology I was born in the year of the snake! Seriously, how does that work?
  • I still use my pin cushion from high school, along with my Grandmother’s thimble. Both are considered vintage! Eeek!!!

  •  Have you ever heard of a wine spritzer called ‘Pretty Toes’? Not me either. But after one or two under the hot summer sun, let’s just say a recipe has been concocted. And that’s all I’m say’n!

  • I know this will probably surprise you, but texting drives me crazy. I’m just not that into it! Drives my daughter even more crazy that I’m not!

Port-to-Port Consulting

  • I work best when I’m curled up somewhere comfy. If I had my way, I’d never work at a desk… but ergonomics tell me I should!

  • Well what a nice way to start a week. Thank you SO much for the award Sheila:)) It’s always nice to learn more about my favourite bloggers. I love that you come from such a strong ancestral line but you’re really going to have to work on the texting thing, kay???

    • You are so welcome! It’s always fun to learn something new about you, too 🙂 And that texting thing. UG!!! I just don’t love it. You know how it is, I’m not very good at the g8, c u l8r, stuff! I fight with the auto correct, and then watch my daughter roll her eyes 😉 But… I do use it. Just don’t tell anyone!

  • I’m flattered! Thank you so much. It’s always nice to know there’s someone paying attention and I always look forward to your blog and the comments you leave on mine. I’m realizing more and more that we have a lot in common, although I don’t think I’m related to Bach. Enjoy your week!

  • Thanks so much Sheila! I love your blog and I always look forward to your comments on mine. I told you I would not do this for just anyone. But you are so special that I must! 🙂

  • Thank you Sheila – what a nice surprise. I love learning more about you. I wish I could say I work like that and I do on most days at my FT job. If I’m just leisurely reading or browsing, then I’m usually on the couch but if I’m working on a project or working on a blog post I’m usually sitting at the table or desk. My Mom’s pin cushion looks just like that too.

  • I don’t have an iPhone, so I couldn’t text even if I wanted to – I’m really old OLD school! And I seem to recall my grandma having a pincushion similar to yours right down to the little embellishment hanging from it. Which I’m sure serves a purpose, although I have no idea what!

    Thanks for passing the award along to me 🙂

    • Texting makes me feel like I’m all thumbs, and who needs to add that to a self-image? 😉 I seem to recall the little embellishment is for sharpening your needles… of course I have no first-hand knowledge of using it for that! Just a clue into my world of sewing, which is why I probably still have my high school pin cushion! 🙂

  • You are too sweet, I know exactly what you mean by a nice surprise! 🙂 Fun to learn more about you, I don’t mind snakes or even mice, but get a grasshopper near me and I go thru the roof! I have my grandma’s thimble and I love it! Thanks for the intro to a few new blogs, too!
