Versatile Blogger Award.

Onwards and upwards! Another photo from Sylt. This little seedling illustrates how I felt when I started my blog. I'm growing though!

I've been handed a blogging award! Coolio! Hurrah! Hooray!

It's called the Versatile Blogger Award and it is passed on from blogger to blogger in appreciation of the work that they are doing.

I was nominated by Naomi at mrsmcindoe, who writes a lovely blog about her adventures in papercutting. I love the beautiful work that she is creating and selling, please go and check it out.

Its seems that winning a blogger award carries some responsibility!

The Rules

1. Add the award to your blog.
2. Thank the blogger(s) who gave it to you.
3. Mention 7 random things about yourself.
4. List the rules.
5. Award to 15 bloggers.
6. Inform each of those 15 by leaving a comment on their blog.
So, 1, 2 and 4 done already. Let's take care of the rest:

7 Random things about me:

1. I love orchids. I keep them even when they look scraggly and half dead. Then in return after a couple of years they reward me with a breathtaking display of enduring beauty. People say they are fussy plants that need knowledgeable care. They're not, mine don't get watered, sit in front of open windows for weeks and never get fed. But they still flower eventually. I love orchids!

2. I am unable to throw away wine bottle corks and metal bottle caps (from beer bottles etc). I have jars and drawers overflowing with them but I can't do it.

3. I would love to own a high end amazingly powerful professional camera (and learn how to use it), but I refuse to research or indeed buy one because I am clumsy. I would drop it and that would be the end of that. 

4. I need a studio (and a fresh water infinity swimming pool).

5. If I didn't live in a rented home I would paint the walls with subtle silhouettes.  

6. I don't like dark chocolate. Or coffee.

7. I love getting lost in the classics: Dickens, Austen, Dostoevsky, Tolstoy, Tolkien...

I hereby pass on this award to 15 super cool bloggers:

1. Sylvia and Simona at the Artsy Ants
2. Rebecca naughty shorts!
3. Liz at Zilredloh
4. Anna at A Few Threads Loose
5. Gertie at Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing
6. Azita at Turmeric and Saffron
7. Julia at Good Cafe Coffee
8. Disney at Ruffles and Stuff
9. Heather at Little Tin Bird
10. Lucy at Attic24
11. Francesca at FuoriBorgo
12. Emma at SilverPebble
13. Katjusha at Katjusha-Dawai
14. Pinkundine at Misadventures in Craft
15. Scarlett at TeenGranny

    1. Hi!

      I'm coming to visit your blog now... Thanks for visiting :)

  2. Congratulations on the award, and thank you for passing it on to me, I'm honored! I collected wine bottle corks for years - I never threw them away, I couldn't bear tob, but I did leave my collection behind when we moved house last (years ago), and didn't start it again (well, I still keep the odd cork now and then!). Happy Sunday!

    1. Oh Francesca, I'm happy to hear that I am not the only one that hoards corks... I'll just have to move house! :)

  3. congrats to you and thanks so much for including us on the list!
    that photo of the seedling is super, i love the perspective.

  4. Thanks my dear! I just couldn't resist taking a picture of the little seedling, it was as if it was saying 'I can do this... I will survive'!!! It was trying to break free from the dunes and live it's little life independently. :)


Thanks for your comment! I would love to reply. Due to blogspot's slightly strange setup you'll only get to see my reply if you check back here in a day or two, or if you click on 'subscribe by email' under the comment box. Cheers!
