Two posts in one weekend - look at that! The reason for this is that the lovely Marie over at A Sewing Odyssey has been kind enough to give me the I Am All That blog award! This is my very first blog award so i am very excited :) Marie is one of my few "real life" sewing friends, and it was she who introduced me to the wonderful world of blogging. So i would definitely recommend that you go and have a look at her blog and all the lovely makes, in particular her vintage aprons.
As a recipient of this award i need to answer five questions and pass the award on to five fellow bloggers, so here we go!
1. What size shoe do you wear? If you wear a size 7, can I borrow your shoes?
Well, you could, but they might be a bit bit for you....at 5'8" i have size-appropriate size 8 feet. I often wish i had smaller feet, as a lot of shoes do not come in my size, and vintage shoes are always tiny as people seem to have had very small feet way back when....but if i had smaller feet i would probably fall over so it's all good :)
2. 30s or 60s?
Hmmm. This is actually a tricky one for me. Recently, as i have learnt more about styles from the past century, i have come to realise that my heart lies with the 50s, with their full skirts and fitted bodices...
Beautiful! Also, since i have a slightly "fuller" figure but a relatively small waist, i think this is the style that suits my shape best.
However....this was not one of the options! I digress. So, 30s or 60s? Hmmm. As a child i was always of the opinion that i should have been born in the 60s, as i am a bit of a hippie at heart. And i do love some of the fashions, for example the mini dress, and then of course there are the Mad Men ladies...
So although i do love the structure of the 30s dresses, i think perhaps i would have to go with 60s...but defiantly the more shapely dresses as model nicely by the Mad Men ladies above, rather than the shapeless shift types. Those prints are just divine!
3. Have you ever kissed someone you shouldn't have?
Erm, yes i think so, way back when....not for a while though, i am much more sensible (or perhaps boring??) these days!
4. Have you ever been poisoned? Was it by the girlfriend of the person you kissed? That is awesomely "Knot's Landing".
Ok, so i confess i had to look up Knot's Landing. I don't think i have ever been poisoned by anyone else, although i may have given myself mild food poisoning on the odd occasion (particularly impressive as i tend not to eat meat) but this is much less exciting!
5. Who's on your "Celebrity Free Pass" list (top 5)?
Hmmmmm. Well, this changes a lot (with some constants!). I suppose currently it would be these five lovely gentlemen:
|Hugh Laurie (Post Blackadder...definitely improving with age!)|
So, there we go! Now for the five bloggers i would like to pass this award onto. Since i read a lot of the same blogs as Marie, i have deliberately chosen to hand this award on to different bloggers. The five i have chosen are made up of blogs i have followed for a while as well as those i have only recently discovered but they have one thing in common, they are all awesome and you should go have a read! In no particular order, i would like to pass the I Am All That award on to:
- Andrea at Invisible Flower
- Debi at My Happy Sewing Place
- Katie at What Katie Found
- Sam at All things quilty...and sewy
- Jane at Handmade Jane
I look forward to seeing your answers :)
