kreativ blogger award


i am so humbled that i have been given this award twice. the first time, i just could not decide what to say and could not do it... and so now... dear sarah and francine...(sarah klassen/haute design and francine gardner art de vivre) these are for you!
you are both incredibly talented and kind...

1) i love oreo cookies. always have, always will. when i was little, my dad used to tell me.. "i am going to come in one morning and wake you to find a giant oreo in this bed!".

2) i am very passionate. about most everything in life. my faith, my family, friends, gardening, antiquing, cheese, the ocean, music, roaring fires, and what i do.

3) i love restoration. i love finding the most wonderful antiques and vintage things (the older the better) and bringing them back to life. i work with amazing craftsmen who are as passionate so it is a remarkable process. (always saving patina! - just a new seat or what it needs to live on...)

4) i am a total foodie. i dream of going to cooking school... i have complete appreciation for chef's and anyone in the food industry.

5) i love anything french. food, furniture, fabric, the language, the architecture...

6) i am a true sleeper. i love my bed...

7) easter is my favorite holiday. the true meaning of it and celebrating with family and friends...

now... the hard part. i love so many blogs it is so difficult to select just 7.

i bestow this fun award to:

*brockstreet
*interiors
*cannelle et vanille
*the bedlem of beefy
*the style saloniste
*trouvais
*bottom of the ironing basket
and i had to add tartelette...

happy valentine's day everyone!!!

love one another.... xo

Francine Gardner said...

Hi Pam, Thanks for being such a trooper...I really enjoyed reading more about you.We do have quite a few things in common.For one, the french thing...well, I was born with it and realize that it is still in my bones as i am rooting for any french athlete that has a shot at the gold..thrilled and teary eyed when an american step on the podium though...I love my bed, especially in the winter... and when traveling dream of it....Easter for me is such a joyous holiday and wonderful service. Will be checking your favorite posts, francine
