An Award...

Ive been awarded a lovely blog award by the fabulous foof and faff - check out her blog if your havent already.  So the deal with the award is that I need to nominate 10 blogs to award this beauty to and I need to tell you 10 things about me.

So I'd like to nominate the following blogs:
My Friends Call Me Nelly
lucy violet vintage
Loo - jumbles and pompoms
Lakota - faith hope and charity shopping
Dressing mrs exeter
Jem - beautiful clutter
Alice - Its an Alien World
cotton end girl
joyful treasure hunting

Those blogs I read and comment on that I haven't nominated - you know you are all fabulous and I would love to nominate you all but thought I'd mix it up between my long time bloggy friends, new blogs I love and some that I haven't nominated before.  Hope I haven't offended anyone by not nominating them, that's the tricky thing with these - eek!

So that's the difficult bit out the way - here's the 10 random facts about me:

1) I have a degree in Psychology and Health Studies but I have done nothing with it since leaving Uni - backpacking called to me more than more studying!

2) I hate cheese - cant bear the taste of it, my mum thinks its because she was really ill on a cheese fondue when she was pregnant with me.

3) I have a glass kiln and used to make dichroic glass jewellery which I taught myself to do - haven't done it for about a year but will get back into it at some point.

4) I met my husband in a night club - classy hey!

5) I love the Glastonbury festival and have been a couple of times but now I've got a little 'un and waiting till he's a bit older to take him for a bit of festival flair!

6) I was once asked to be a burlesque performer for a top DJ night after my cousin went round a club telling everyone that I was a famous Burlesque dancer. We got ushered into a VIP lounge and the DJ wanted to book me for his regular club spot.  That's the problem you get when you are the only person dressed in vintage gear in a night club!  I lied and said I would do it then gave a phony telephone number :o)

7) I drove on the motorway for the first time last weekend after being able to drive for 3 years!

8) I have a fear of slugs

9) I dream of owning my own vintage clothing and homewear shop - maybe when I win the lottery.

10) As well as loving Elvis and Johnny Cash I've got a girl crush on Dolly Parton - she's amazing!  Plus she is on Daybreak tomorrow- V exciting!

So there with have it - take the award if you want it my nominated lovelies, I know its not everyone thing.

  1. Congratulations my lovely, and thanks so much for passing it on to me - I'm going to find it tricky to know who to give it to now, you've awarded most of my faves! I will have a think...

    Re: your facts, I never drive on the motorway (did about 10 miles near Cardiff once) and I've been driving 6 years! Would also love a shop, perhaps we can go into business one day, will keep scratching those scratchcards... I love cheese though, hope that isn't a dealbreaker!

    Would love to see some of the jewellery you made

  2. Congratulazioni Scarlette!Rosetta

  3. Congratulations on your award!

    Lol had to laugh when you said about your girl crush on old Dolly. Her's was the first album I ever owned! My nan brought it for me for my birthday one year when i was a child. Mainly because I was obsessed with the song 'letter from heaven'. Yes I was a strange little being and must of been quite morbid too!
