7 Things

Jody of the little prints recently passed on The Beautiful Blogger Award to me which means I finally have a great excuse to share 7 of my favorite blogs with you! I'm also suppose to share 7 little fun facts about myself with you. So here you go!

1. I was born in a small town in Texas called Seguin, which is the pecan capital of Texas and holds the world record for the largest pecan in the world. Just in case you wanted to know.

2. I have a love/hate relationship with the sun. I prefer sunny days, but I hate, hate getting tan and of course, I tan really easily. So my preference for pale skin is really hard for me to achieve.

3. Joy Division is one of my all time favorite bands. I plan on getting a portrait of Ian Curtis (the lead singer) tattooed on me someday. Yes, I'm serious.

4. I love tiki drinks almost as much as craft beers! Luckily, I live in an area that is home to the mai tai and has several fantastic tiki bars around.

5. One of my biggest regrets is not having the time to ride horses anymore. I started riding English when I was in high school and had to quit when I left for college. I swore to myself at the time that I wouldn't become that lady in her later 20's teaching herself to ride again. Unfortunately, I have only been on a horse twice in the past 10 years.

6. I may be opening up a second Etsy store which will allow me to explore and cultivate my new found love of succulents and vintage ceramics.

7. Halloween is my all time favorite holiday, which means this blog will be taken over by Halloween schtuff once October roles around.

Okay, enough about me. Now onto the fun part. Here are some of my top favorite blogs. This little list is in no particular order.


1. I go by Katie - I first started following Katie's older blog called Bara Litten. Then I discovered later that she was the genius behind Darlingtonia Moccasin co. To say the least, she is a very multi-talented lady.

2. Small stump & studio choo - I never thought of including raspberry branches in a floral bouquet until I started following this wonderful floral blog.

3. Super Duper Things - a super cool lady from the UK that makes super cool stuff.

4. Maggie Makes - One of the most creative, generous ladies in the blog world. Karen posts a new free tutorial every month for people to download.

5. button candy - Even if you are not obsessed with buttons, you should check out this blog.

6. doe-c-doe - If you are an embroidery/vintage fanatic, you will want to check out this blog.

7. That Kate - I just discovered this blog today and I love it! So many purty pics of this ladies many adventures.
