I've won my first blog award!

Yay I've been nominated by Sarah over at Narcoleptic in a Cupboard as a stylish blogger!!!!  I'm stylish!! Woo Hoo!!  And I only have 13 followers and 20 posts (If only I could give up my day Job).  Not bad I guess, or perhaps just lucky.

So the "rules" that accompany this award are to list 7 things about yourself then pass the award on to your 6 recently discovered great bloggers.

7 things about me
When I grow up I want to sing in a jazz and blues band.
I can no longer do the splits
I have a BA in Photography
I am in love with Inigo Montoya ... still after all these years
I once learnt how to play blues harp at a masterclass in Bristol with Eddie Martin and was quickly banned by my then housemate
I have moved houses 9 times in 9 1/2 years  living in the UK
I once danced  in only a flesh net body suit with three fig leaves to a crowd of 8 thousand people (I was way thinner)

My newly discovered stylista's
Sarah Elaine @ Ohhh Lulu who makes the cutest smalls
Hayley Lau @ Thinker Maker who makes me think about my shoe collection and gives great tips on green living
Katie-Louse Ford @ Katie-Louise Ford who is from my home town and makes beautiful dresses and has and Etsy shop to love
Michael Blamey @ Melbourne Today who takes pics of my home town and makes me want to be back there
Alice @ Crochet with Raymond with her tales of the lovely and delightful Ray and her delightful hooky creations
Tasha @ By gum, by Golly! who is a vintage Queen with knitting skills I can only dream of acquiring

Thanks again Sarah, and thanks for not banning me after my recent comment. 

Thanks also to all 13 people who read my blog.  Without you I would just become the crazy old cat lady even faster than I am.

  2. more than 13 readers...just some of us have problems commenting and prefer to bookmark than to follow...

  3. I still have my blues harp though it got a thrashing at my engagement party as part of the music table for the kids!! How very funny that you were banned from playing - though not surprising ;-)

    I love reading your blog updates. This little bit of you brings a smile to my face, a tear to my eye (for I miss you soooooooooooooooo much) and motivates me to spend more time in my creative space.

    I love this place to which you bring me. MWUA. Thanks Cyd.
