One Lovely and Another Creative

 Lovely and Kreative are two blogger awards that have circulated blog land and found its way here. Two delightful, inspiring, humorous, intelligent, LOVELY and CREATIVE women have graced me with this honor to which I thank them---At a price. I must share 7 random things about myself, and pass these awards on to other bloggers who I find lovely and creative. Notice how I am combining two awards into one? That would be the first random thing about me:

  • I am very tricky. I also love to sneak up on people and scare them. Practical jokes make my day, and I love to hide things, especially treats so I can have them later. My family likes to compare me to a squirrel. 
  • You never know when or where I will be with my camera ready to catch you off guard. I am a super Spy and a Super hero, top secret of course, so don't tell anyone.
  • Hangers need to hang the same way in the closet to keep the universe from collapsing, I am still trying to convince my husband of that fact. He avoids that problem by throwing all his clothes on the floor and refusing to buy more closet space.
  • I am addicted to spices and herbs. I love experimenting with them in food and art.
  • I make my own soaps, oils, candles, incense....yes, I am a witch but don't worry, I am a good one and I never drink and fly.
  • There is always some kind of stone in my pocket or on my person, and I am always looking for new ones. I recently quite my stone of the month club but I think I may have to join again. Just another addiction.
  • The sound of sports announcers on TV or the radio make me cringe. I don't understand why they have to scream, it hurts my ears! If my husband is watching sport on TV, I wear headsets and listen to music. Get a grip people, it's only a ball!

Hi Siv .. congratulations on the awards .. my pockets would fall apart if I collected stones - plenty here from the beach, but sharp flinty ones!!

Thank you so much for passing it/them on to me .. really appreciate the thought ..

Have a great weekend .. I love food with spices and herbs in .. sadly I'm not arty .. so we'll have to stick with the food and vino!!

Cheers Hilary

Congratulations on your awards, Siv! And many thanks for honoring me with one. I really appreciate it. :)

I liked the very interesting facts you listed about yourself, especially that you create soaps, oils, candles and incense. I love surrounding myself with fragrance, especially lavender and patchouli. :)

Thanks again--you really made my day!
