honestly




The lovely Daryl at vermont cottage recently bestowed this sweet award to me. I am truly honored that anyone would do such a thing! I'm surprised that anyone would even take the time to read what I have to say. Please visit her blog and see the beautiful things she has done renovating her cottage. Thank you Daryl for the kind gesture.

The rules are: I must brag about the award. Link back to those who gave it to me. Share 10 honest things about me, and give the award to 7 more bloggers. So here it goes.

1. Black and white have always been my favorite colors.

2. I cannot live with clutter.

3. Being a vegan is hard.

4. I wish I had less, not more.

5. I believe that raising 3 sons is my biggest and best accomplishment.

6. I have the best friends in the whole world.

7. I often fantasize about becoming a hermit.

8. I don't have a cell phone.

9. Living in this small house is a dream come true.

10. I've spent too much of my life concerned with what others think.

Now for the fun part. I get to nominate 7 other blogs that I love and/or that inspire me. The hard part will be narrowing it down to 7. If you are on this list, I love reading what you have to say and viewing the beautiful pictures that you post. So congratulations ladies and please everyone, go check out their blogs, they are amazing.

1. A Country Farmhouse

2. For the Love of a House

3.Casa Dulce Hogar

4.Comfort and Luxury

5.Jans gems

6.The cottage loft

7.Room service decorating 101

  1. We must have been separated at birth! I agree with all that you say, though being vegetarian is the hardest I've tried :)

  2. Hi Janet, thank you for your kindness, I really apprecciate it, but you know, it happens to me that it`s to difficult for me to write or speak english, and even understand everything, so I don´t think I can participate in this award...but I do understand your 10 honest things and really agree with you... except that of being a vegetarian cause I was one for 9 years, not even eating fish or chicken, just vegetables, fruits, milk and lots of sweets but after all those years, one day I began needing desperately to eat meat, really, so now I eat everything!!
    Sorry not being able to enter in this award.
    Muchos cariños

  3. Thanks for thinking of me, but I am going to pass this time. I did a post on myself not long ago. I loved your ten things. I could relate to most of them, two peas in a pod.

  5. Congratulations on the award Janet! And I am touched and honored that you have given it to me! It means so much to me that you like my blog. I love your ten honest things... they are so zen! Now, have black and white 'always' been your favorite colors? I think that is so interesting.
    Thank you Janet.
