One Lovely Blog

lovely blog awardI’ve been nominated twice for this award now but have been rubbish at getting round to writing my post – apologies to the lovely Writing in Devizes who nominated me first) and my fellow nail-varnish obsessed The Beautified Blogger (who nominated me again).  Many thanks to you both for the nominations.

There are a few rules involved, which are:

  1. You must thank the person who nominated you and include a link to their blog.
  2. You must list the rules and display the award.
  3. You must add 7 facts about yourself.
  4. You must nominate 15 other bloggers and comment on one of their posts to let them know they have been nominated
  5. You must display the award logo and follow the blogger who nominated you – don’t worry, you don’t have to follow me 😉

So, here goes with the seven facts:

  1. I have two rabbits, Rupert and Jasmine, who haven’t featured on my blog yet as they are really shy!
  2. I have drawers and jewellery boxes full of costume jewellery, yet still I buy more!
  3. I’ve got 4 tattoos and am planning a fifth
  4. My favourite colour is red although I hardly ever wear it
  5. My favourite book of all time is The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald
  6. I used to be a teacher but now I work in marketing
  7. I hate when people are late

My nominations hopefully reflect my love of books, beauty, vintage and piggies (plus other gorgeous animals too).  Apologies if you’ve already been nominated, but I think you’re ‘lovely’ too:

  1. Not Throwing Stones

Fern’s First Blog

I had every intention of writing a follow-up to my recent post on Making Way for the New.  However, under the pretence of wanting some attention and a wander around the room, Fern took over the computer and the blogging for today…

Hello Fern here.  As you can see I have taken over the blog for today.  I started by looking at the boring stuff already written…


Obviously, I deleted it…


I googled piggy related stuff instead (Rosebud and I REALLY want one of those handmade piggy sofas each for Christmas).  Then I realised I’d better start writing the blog.


But to be honest, by that time I couldn’t really be bothered.


So I went searching for tasty noms instead.
