A Tag and an Award!

(Stunning tile made by Ness @ Marley & Lockyer)

My new pal Ness at the charming blog Marley & Lockyer Tagged me a few weeks ago. Thank you Ness, I apologise for the delayed response. The rules say to link to the person who tagged you, mention the rules, tell 6 quirky yet un interesting things about yourself and tag six other people with a link to their blogs and a comment to let them know they've been tagged.

Ok here goes -

1, Some would say I am obsessed with interior design, it's all I really like to talk about all day lol (Thank God for my blog!)

2, I LOVE green veges - broccoli, asparagus, zucchini, avocado, capsicum, bok choy, beans, peas - if it's green I can't get enough.

3, I'm a shopaholic and often find myself buying too many things I don't need.

4, I really don't like cooking and only do it cause I have to.

5, I have waaay too many collections.

6, Although it's been 5 years since their deaths I still ache for my grandparents everyday.

My other newest pal, Brooke from Velvet and Linen kindly sent me this award today, thank you :)

The rules for this award are to mention where the award came from and tell them you have posted it, list 6 things you value, and pass it on to 6 other blogs.

I value my family! Immediate and extended. They mean the world to me, without them I am nothing.

I value my friends. Loyal friends are rare and should be cherished.

I'm going to sound like a hypocrite saying this but I do value my faith in Christianity. I feel it's a constant strength in making me want to be a better person.

I value my home. I live in a very modest home but I am grateful because unfortunately there are too many people who don't have a home they can call their own. It's not my dream home but with a few modifcations I would be happy living here my whole life.

I value my families time left to spend at our beloved lake house. It goes to auction on the 11th of december...more on that another time.

Finally, I value my blog and my new friends across the globe who share this passion of elegant, traditional interior design. Since discovering all of you I have become a very happy camper!

Thank you again Ness and Brooke. I wont pass on these posts as I think just about everyone on my blog list has already received them. I think everyone on my list deserves this award so if there is anyone who has missed out please let me know.

Anna xox.

Truly a sweet post! Family is everything and without them we are nothing, I agree. I myself have lost all my Grandparents, the last one aka "Grumpy" (but never grumpy)will be a year ago Dec 1st. Deeply missed, deeply loved, all my good traits are from all of them. cry cry...thank you for this post.

Take Care Friend,

So lovely to get to know you a bit better, Anna. Thanks for sharing your quirky facts (wish your green vege addiction would rub off on my kids!) and your values - so close to my own.
