A little break and a lovely people

I'm off on a wee holiday today to visit family so wanted to pop in to say hello and show my virtual face.I'm really looking forward to the break and the hope I'll come home all spritely and refreshed.

But before I head off on my travels and I wanted to say thank you to Supercutetilly , NOfkantsCurios and Sugarplum Kawaii for passing on the Stylish Blogger Award to me.I highly recommend all three lovely ladies' great blogs and wonderful shops!

The rules of the nomination are
1. Thank the person and include the link for the nomination.
2. Share seven things about yourself.
3.Nominate 15 blogs for the award.

Here are my seven 'interesting' facts about myself.

One - I'm scared of mashed potato,I even feel strange typing this(quickly fetch the smelling salts!)

Two -  I never ever wear matching socks or stockings.My feet only match when wearing tights.

Three - I'm the queen of phases and these phases are often lengthy.As a teenager I wore a ring on each of my fingers but for the past seven years my hands have remained naked and ring less.Also I drank only milk for five years solid many moons ago.

Four - I own eighty five dresses of which I probably only wear twenty.I obviously have hoarding issues but they are just too pretty to part with!

Five - Drawing and painting have always been my first loves but recently hand sewing has been creeping in to compete for first place.So combining all three seems to be the most obvious way to go.

Six - I would love to be as graceful as Vivian Leigh was,sing like Kate Bush,be as talented as my grandmother,as brave as Joan of Arc and have teeth like Patricia Arquette's.

Seven -  My greatest ambition is to have my own book published and see it on a shelf in my grandparents library.You never know..  

And now for the blogs I would like to nominate.I will try to not duplicate any blogs but I think it's inevitable.I love these blogs for so many different reasons; some inspire me; some teach me,others make me chuckle and some feel so familiar and warm that it's like popping in for a cup of tea and chat.

Potnonomicaphobia...apparantly the technical name for any Potato phobia! Quite rare...unlike my fear of massive dogs.
Really enjoyed your 7 things about yourself (-;
