Kreativ Blogger

I have won a blog award! The lovely Anabel Fournier of "And so I whisper" has passed on the Kreativ Blogger title to me. This came as a wonderful surprise and is an honour coming from someone who is so creative herself. Anabel is based in Kenya and designs beautiful hand-knitted children's clothes.

As part of the award, I will now list 7 things that I love.

1. I love my man! Voyt and I met on the internet in 1998. He lived in Canada and I right here in Brisbane. Two weeks later he was on a plane to Australia to say hello in person. We will be celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary in August.

2. I love my children, Elessa and Valerio. During the years that I was a single mum, they kept me strong and inspired and have grown to become lovely and happy young adults.

3. I love my pooch, Zoe. She is such a happy animal and is always there to greet us at the door after a long, hard day at work.

4. I love summer holidays in Greece! The crystal clear waters, the never-ending sunshine, the locally-grown produce and fresh seafood, the afternoon siestas in preparation for late evenings wining and dining with friends.

5. I love vintage treasures. I have a small collection of fashion, orange ceramic vases and other little knick knacks.

6. I love the texture of natural fabrics; particularly linen. I have been in love with it for as long as I can remember. What could be cooler and more luxurious to wear on a hot summer's day than natural linen?

7. And last but not least, I love living in Brisbane. We are blessed with the perfect, sub-tropical climate, friendly residents and a lovely sense of community.

Now to pass on the Kreativ Blogger to 7 other blogs that I love to read. I nominate the following:

Beach Vintage
Bespoke Press
Little Jane St.
Lino Forest
Lyssy May
Of Paper and Thread

Each of those nominated should list 7 things and 7 blogs that they love.

Dear Thea, what a wonderful list of things you love!!! My new partner in the sisal bags is a girl from Greece and her name is Zoe!! I smiled all the way reading through your list!

Thea said...

That's funny Anabel. When I first saw this fluffy white puppy, she was so energetic that her name immediately came to me - Zoe, the Greek word for life. Thanks again.

Very nice Blog and family, cute little dog too! Picture of Greece is beautiful! And the meaning of the name Zoe is perfect!

Hi! I found you via Steph over at Bondville (she nominated me for a Kreativ Blogger award, which led me to you...such a sweet and cool idea!) What a lovely blog you have. Is your sweet pup a spitz?? She looks just like my sweet little dog i had growing up!

: )

Thea said...

HI Alexandra,
Yes, Zoe is a spitz (or American Eskimo. They're not very common here in Australia but I have had her since she was a puppy and living in Canada at the time. Of course, I couldn't leave her behind when I moved back home.
I look forward to seeing your responses to the Kreativ Blogger award!
