Oooh, an award!

Wow! Lovely Angel from Vintage Angel has given me a blog award! Thank you, Angel :-) There are a couple of rules that go with it:





* Copy the logo and place it on my own blog
* Link it back to the person who gave it to me
* Pass it on to five fellow bloggers (I'm living dangerously and giving eight)
* List 10 things about myself

I would like to pass this award on to some of my absolute favourite bloggers:

Ballarat Vintage Style

boatshedchic
Hippie on the Inside
fat mum slim
K.Line
L-Plates
MLF
Vintage Stories


1) My obsession with all things 1920's gives me the distinct feeling of having been born 80 years too late;


2) I drink tea every day, without fail;

3) I've been an artist's model for three years now and it's one of my favourite jobs so far;

4) I don't play any instruments but I'm quite the whistler;

5) My pet hates include systemic functional grammar, leaf blowers and people who litter;

6) I'd quite like a reptilian pet, like a carpet python or an iguana;


7) Current obsessions include travelling all over Europe under the guise of it being a 'linguistic pilgrimage';

8) I wish my hair was naturally curly and red;


9) If I had to name something I collect, I'd say vintage silk scarves. But it's not a very big collection;

10) I have about 100 courses/diplomas/classes/etc that I want to do 'one day'. Maybe I not-so-subconsciously miss being a full-time student and am trying to find a way to keep living the dream...

Thanks so much Iris! I should disclose, sometimes I'm crap at doing these in any sort of timely fashion! - please know it's not because I don't love the love - I'm just all over the place. Kxo

I'm with you on numbers 1 & 2. With regards number 3, what an interesting job!

Awwww! Thanks Iris! My 1st award : )

I'm not very good at writing interesting things about myself, but maybe I'll try to think of an alternative list...

Iris said...

@K.Line: no dramas, if I wasn't at home so much I would be completely crap at these things (in fact, I doubt I'd even be in blogland)!

@Ballarat Vintage Style: how did I forget you?! And I just realised that you're not on my blog roll! Darned baby-brain...
And it's funny, I always thought it would be an interesting job but now it seems very "another day at the office", sort of thing!

@Eco-Chic-Mummy: aw, you're always writing such interesting things, I know you can come up with 10 about yourself ;-)

I hear you on the littering thingy. So not cool.

My latest way to combat it is to call the EPA litterbug line if I see someone drop ciggie butts out their window. They get a warning in the mail from the EPA.

I know it's a dobber-like thing to do, but if they do it a few times, they receive a fine - and are probably unlikely to do it again!

Iris said...

@Permanently twenty three: oh wow, that sounds really, really good. I 99% don't like being a dobber, but for the other 1%, victory is sweeeeet.

I'm going to let my inner vigilante loose and use that EPA litterbug line. Thanks for the tip ;-)
