Number three

well well well
says mister Moose
another award for creJJtion
made me fall out of the window...

I am that honoured and astonished!
and of course very happy
to take the third Stylish Blogger Award
from Clara and her crochetroom

~ thank you so much Clara ~

the first and second award came close after eachother
and I promised you to feature three more blogs

but before that: let me tell you some more facts about me

I love garlic
have over 40 pair of shoes
would love to have more bags and purses
cannot stop buying craftstuff ~ new and vintage
and love to shop second hand items to decorate my home
can never choose: lovely whites and natural colours.... or colourful displays
would like to bake more, but the trouble with baking is you are left with the cakes

blogfeature one

one of my most loyal followers is Andrea from Apples and Pears. She is a very good virtual friend of creJJtion and brightens my day several times a week with her compliments. Besides that, she is very good in making colourful crochet beauties like this latest blanket for example. I love the colours... And she has a very creative sister too, check out this colourful scarf for example!

blogfeature two

a blog I found only a month ago: birdy blue. I love the colours she uses on her blog. We share our love for Cath Kidston and Greengate kind of lovelies. Another thing I like about birdy blue is the American style traditions she holds, like the tea for example. I think family and friends traditions are wonderful... especially during the holidays!

blogfeature three

and then there is FRYD + DESIGN. A blog I have mentioned before and probably will again in the future. I think you all have came across Jeanette's wonderful blog already, but in case you didn't... this Norwegian lady makes beautiful settings and pictures. Really, I adore her work. She is featured in magazines and even designs her own digital ones. To me that is a dream come true: being featured in a magazine, just by doing what you love. Design and take pictures.

Enjoy ladies and I wish you all a wonderful weekend
