[ feeling all white and I'd like to thank the academy...]

I'VE GOT A THING FOR pretty accent chairs and I love how this white one could be used anywhere - a bedroom, living room or even a bathroom. I also love the use of black frames for punctuation and the alphabet board is so charming (for some reason it reminds me of the old Ouija board we used to have as kids.)


I've also been feeling pretty popular over the past couple of weeks - I've been awarded the Stylish Blogger Award by not one but 4 fellow bloggers (!!!) and I am beyond flattered! Thanks to Janell, Meeling  Anita and Chania:

The rule of accepting this award is to share 7 things that people may not know about me and pass the award along to other lovely bloggers to do the same. So here we go...

1) I don't like to separate my OREOs. 2) I used to sew doll clothes when I was little and taught my friends how to make them too. 3) I always make my bed as soon as I get up. 4) I once had a summer job at a mine site cleaning men's change rooms and doing their stinky laundry. 5) I preferred the job I had selling cosmetics. 6) I used to move my furniture around a lot as a kid [which may be an indicator as to why I love decor so much!] 7) Shania Twain bought one of my bags last summer and Hello Canada magazine mentioned it in an article about her [I almost fainted!]

I'd love to pass along this award to these lovely bloggers whose blogs are always a fun and inspirational visit:

Simone at Beach Vintage

Janis at Pinecone Camp

Kellie at Ada+Darcy

Thanks again for the honour and if you haven't yet met these bloggers, be sure to stop by and say hello!

A handbag, or purse in American English, is a handled medium-to-large bag that is often fashionably designed, typically used by women.

Congrats! Nice to learn a little more about you! Sounds like you were destined for decor/design! Job with Mining company sounds horrible but a good way to reach for more in life ....my worst job involved saying paper or plastic....! Have a great Tuesday!

Those were fun facts. I haven't done any of them except rearrange my furniture. My mother says that often she would walk into her kitchen to find it completely rearranged, this started when I was about 8 :)
Crazy exciting about Shania Twain buying on of your bags, totally would have fainted!

Lovely...you truly deserve it, your blog is always "Stylish" and lots of fun to peek at and read.

Fun reading a little bit more about you...the cleaning job at the mine sounds very interesting! ;-)
