Dear Designer’s First Award!!……….

So touched to see this little surprise in my comments box today!

Dear Designer’s first award – awarded by Anna at Around My Table.  Please pop over and have a look at her blog – its full of the most delectable recipes among other things, and  illustrated by her own beautiful photographs. 


Now, I just have to:

– List 10 things that make me happy.
– Pass the award on to 10 bloggers.
– Link and thank the person who gave the award to me.
– Notify the new recipients of the award. 

Things that make me happy:

  1. My BF.  (stands for Best Friend as well as Boy Friend).
  2. My family (especially my 6’3″ handsome son) and friends.
  3. Travel.  The more ‘off the beaten track’ the better.
  4. Designing. Live it, breath it.
  5. My home. I’m embarrassingly house proud.
  6. Drawing. Unfortunately I don’t get enough time to do much.
  7. Losing myself in a good book.
  8. Blogging. Especially reading my chums blogs.
  9. Weddings.  I always cry.
  10. Flowers. I always buy them for myself.  Hint, hint.

I’m passing this on to:

  1. Katherine – Urban Flea Design
  2. Sarah – A Beach Cottage
  3. Meredith – Retro Luxe

 Thanks again Anna!

Carole- aka Dear Designer.
