Blogger Award

I got a lovely surprise yesterday when I received the Most Stylish blogger award from this lovely lady here

Here are the rules for the award:

1. Thank and link back to the person who awarded you this award
Share 7 things about yourself:
3. Award 15 recently discovered great bloggers
4. Contact these bloggers and tell them about the reward!

So here are the seven things about me that I thought I would share:

1. I have an awesome gigantic statue in my room of a frog on a bench. He is holding roses and waiting for the bus. It makes me smile every time I look at it because it's so goofy. I love my frog on a bench.

2. I collect things whenever I have a really great day, whether they be random free postcards, beer mats, photos, letters, drawings from the kids I teach or whatever else I can find. I stick these on my wall and my room kind of resembles a giant scrapbook :)

3. I'm the most uncoordinated person I have ever met. I can't go a day without running into things, falling flat on my face or knocking something over. Mum won't let me eat away from a washable surface. Neither will Joel actually...

4. In primary school I was put in the 'special kids' gym class. Again because of the whole uncoordinated thing.

5. I like to talk during movies and tv shows, then asked when I missed while I was talking

6. I write songs on piano but am too judgmental of myself and usually never finish them.

7. I love anything to do with the 20's- early 60's (except Mad Men...). Rockabilly, swing, awesome jazz piano players, Elvis, old-school tap, pin-up and petticoats are some of my favourite things.

Now here are the fifteen lovely bloggers I would like to pass the award onto (I wish that I could pick everyone I'm following!!):

1. Not Your Average Ordinary

2. The Hummingbee

3. Life in Technicolor

4. Letters from Maud

5. Village

6. Ellecupcake

7. Jenni Austria Germany

8. The Meaning Between Things

9. Red Boots

10. Wishful Thinking

11. Vintch

12. Katie Anderson Writer

13. Sara in Le Petit Village

14. Just Putting it Out There

15. Kimbirdy

ps. If you click on the names there's a link, I'm too lazy to make it orange again :)


ellecupcake said...

wow! Thank you so much. :) You made my day! Oh! I am very bad at talking through movies as well. Especially when I've already seen it and the other person hasn't.. also horrible at saying "oh! This next part is so funny!" .. even though it bugs me when people do it to me. :)

The Many Colours of Happiness said...

I do that too!! Or 'oh no, it's so sad what happened to this character..but don't worry I won't tell you what it was...


...They die.'

Emily Lou said...

thank you! that was so kind of you to think of me!

Sara Louise said...

Thanks! You've made my Thursday :-)
That frog on the bench sounds really cool! I love statues of frogs, not actual frogs, but statues and ceramics are so cute.

Tiq said...

Ahhh that no 5, i used to do..hahaha..people got fed up of me asking questions on what I missed...

Thanks for telling us more about you. It's a good way of getting know each other through blogosphere. I feel like I 'know' you better now. :)

Krystal said...

aww thank you so much!!!! that is very cool that you can play the piano, I've always wanted to. I think you should keep writing!!!!

becky said...

Thankyou, sweetheart! You have set my day up for happiness :)

I love a lot of the vintage things you mentioned although I am there a reason you don't particularly like Madmen? I started watching the boxset a little while ago and I love the fashion and the artistry of it but I am not very keen on the infidelity---I think that is the part that gets to me the most!

Jenni Austria Germany said...

you are so sweet! i liked reading your facts. funny that you don't like mad men! i have never watched it but i just always hear people obsessing over it. and the gym thing made me sad/laugh at the same time. :) i will be thinking of my facts!

Googlover/keishua said...

Congrats, I will have to check these out. Oh, I love to talk during movies. This is why I hate watching a movie alone because I need to talk about it.

Brandi {not your average ordinary} said...

Aww, thank you Kaylia! I can definitely relate to your lack of coordination. New black and blues occur practically daily for me too.

Kimbirdy said...

aw thanks lady! i love that you write songs. i really wish that was a talent i possessed, but i really can't at all. and i love rockabilly & swing too!! sometimes we get all dressed up and go swing dancing. so much fun!

ps - i'm so excited your wedding went well and you had a fun honeymoon. when can we see more wedding pictures?! :)

kara lynn said...

i love your list of the things about yourself. i just love your random facts. and i as well talk in movies. and most people don't like it. well not in the theatre just at home. and thank you for the award. i have never won anything like that! so thank you! and yes please post more wedding photos!

Melissa: Write it in Lipstick said...

oh no your a movie talker, it's ok I forgive you. you and my husband should watch movies together. He does that full time.

vineet said...

the runaway romantique said...

awww I do number 5 too! ehehe and I'm a bit similar with you in terms of number 6, I way to over-critical to finish anything I write/create :) have a great weekend, sweetie!


Bonnie said...

Your lack of coordination makes you even more of my hero than you already were.
Congrats on the award. You deserve it, honey! <3
