Award Season

I received a blogging award from 50villapeikkoa, and I wanted to say thank you! It's a real honor
coming from her, because she is like everything I am not: an efficient and awesome knitter! I
tried knitting once, and well, let's just say, I didn't get very far. But I love looking at the knitting
creations of other people, and really enjoy the pictures on her blog. So thank you! :)

The rules for the Versatile Blog Awards are:

  • Nominate 15 fellow bloggers.
  • Inform the bloggers of their nomination.
  • Share 7 random things about yourself.
  • Thank the blogger who nominated you.
  • Add the Versatile Blog Award picture on your blog post.

I know not everybody likes blogging awards, but I do like them, because they are what blogging
is all about: sharing! A lot of the blogs below I read and stalk and rarely to never comment on, so
here I'm sharing them with the world:

I'd like to pass on the award to these blogs, in alphabetical order:

- Fridulina
Thoughtful words and lovely craft projects. And a very special woman in real life. <3

- Domestic reflections
I like her honesty.

craft projects with kids.

family life in Germany (in German)

- lista asioista
artsy and cool (in Finnish)

Because she captures the everyday so beautifully.

Because her children always make the coolest things.

- Oon
Because she has a way with color and patterns, and I think she should start selling kids clothes!

Because her pictures are always full of patterns and texture.

- Remind Me Sara
Because she is my real-life friend and I love her so. :)

Inspiration for kids art

- Rockstar Diaries
She makes life seem so pretty and easy

Because she is living proof that there is elegance in a simple life.

Because she makes me want to sew, badly!

Color therapy.

In case the blog owners see this: There is no pressure to show this award on your blog, or to pass it on, if you don't want to. 
I just want to show my appreciation. :)

Oh, and then 7 random things about me:

  • 1. In my ideal world, I'd have a house full of children, right by the sea, and it would be barefoot-running and pebble skimming, and pancake making, and sunshine and bliss all the time!
  • 2. In real life, I barely manage to take out the trash, so maybe not.
  • 3. Though I'm thinking, maybe another girl would be nice, someday; and a little boy. And twins on top of that.
  • 4. As of yesterday, my husband is back in school and I'm happy and excited for him and for us, but also seething with jealousy. I'm so jealous that I'm seriously considering signing up for a pole dancing/cabaret strip class. Just so I have something exciting and new and slightly shocking in my life. Desperate Housewife much? (Edit: No worries, it's just a class with a silly name at my gym. No poles, and certainly no stripping. Too bad. :D)
  • 5. So, I'm thinking it's time for me to go back to school, too. At least part-time. Maybe in fall. To study human rights law, like I always wanted. Or maybe Hebrew, that would be cool, or creative writing, or egyptology, or underwater basket weaving! You know. Something! Anything!
  • 6. Hmm.. Can't I have a house full of children, and be a novelist, and have a PhD, and save all the women and children on earth, and live by the sea, all five? 
  • 7. I like to day-dream. :)

Thank you, 50villapeikko, for the award! And sorry that it took me a month to finally blog about it!
