I want to say thank you very much to Rena who recently awarded me this Kreativ blogger award...
and also to Fabi who gave me this From Me to You award. I also want to apologise to you both because I am not very good at keeping up with these kind of things. I am afraid I am going to cheat because both awards have similar things to do. I'll post seven random things about me that you might not know, then I've created my own little award for blogs I love to visit.

Now for the random facts...

1. I play ukulele
2. I write songs for Sunday school children
3. I love gardening
4. I love to use essential oils, in particular lavender and tea tree
5. I love rocket salad with orange balsamic dressing
6. I'm not very organised
7. I make all my own greeting cards (but often fail to send them out in time for occasions because of fact no.6)

Here are seven wonderful people (out of many) whose blogs I enjoy visiting and I think you would too.
This award is for them...why not spend a pleasant while browsing their blogs.

PS. Pierre is now in the shop :-)


  1. Thank you so much for the award. It means a lot to me that you enjoy MY blog! I am now a happy follower of your blog. I too love the scent of lavender, I am not very organized either!
    Thanks for leaving me the comment and letting me know you gave me an award!
    Take Care,

  2. Hi Doda,
    My daughters and I were just talking on Saturday about a place we'd love to travel someday! Guess where that is? Scotland, yup! I am thrilled to follow you as you do life in your part of the world!
    I know I will glean some extremely interesting ideas, and I love stuff that is different!
    Your blog is so darling!
    I have played "You are my Sunshine" on a Ukulele, once.
    I love gardening, too!
    What in the world is a "rocket salad"?
    I LOVE making cards, too!
    I am semi-organised. (See? I spelled it with an "s", which is how my girls (lovers of all things European) spell words that usually have a "z". They also write "favourite" and "colour").
    Anyway, just wanted you to know you now have a stalker (probably 3 of us) over here in SC, USA.
    Many blessings to you!

  3. Ahhh thank you so much.
    Its always lovely to hear that people enjoy visiting my blog and some of the normal everyday things I write about.
    My card making has got slack the last year or so thats needs to change again and although i trey my hardest at being organised im also rather messy, you should see my desk at work!
    i too love lavender.
    i shall go and have a peek at the other blogs you have awarded it to and im sure they will be lovely.
    Thanks again
    Take care
