Thanks for the love!

My lovely twin soul, Tracy, was nice enough to pass this blogging award on to me.

Here are the rules:

1. Thank the person who nominated you for this award.
2. Copy the award & place it on your blog.
3. Link to the person who nominated you for this award.
4. Share 5 interesting things about yourself.
5.Nominate 7 bloggers and let them know on their blog.

Thanks Tracy! It was so sweet of you to think of me. I love reading your creative and inspiring blog because it makes me feel like I’m a part of your everyday life, even though I don’t get to see you that often.

Oh, and also, I’m totally copying you and relating all of my interesting facts to home d├ęcor!

Here we go!

1. I hate shoes. To be more accurate, I love looking at shoes, but I hate wearing them. As a kid, I went around barefoot most of the time. The goal was always to have thick enough calluses to run over the gravel driveway by the end of summer. I still kick my shoes off the second I enter the house. I think that’s why I love earthy, natural floor coverings.
I love to feel wood and sisal and jute under my feet. It’s like being transported back to all those long, barefoot summers. No carpet for this girl!

2. I could happily lounge on a blanket and stare at this sky for hours.
I’m a total country girl. I think I’ve unconsciously tried to recreate the vibe of endless sky and rolling fields inside the roost.
So many of my little vignettes have been shades of blue, green, and cream!

3. As much as I love the spare, modern cottage look, it’s just not for me. I am collector. I tend to accumulate like items without even knowing it. It was cows and colored bottles as a teenager and now it's retro kitchen items and paint by number art.
Is it any wonder I also have a secret yearning to start a vintage door knob collection?

4. I think I have a twinge of seasonal affectedness disorder. I always get a little case of the winter blues. One sure tonic is a bright bouquet of early spring flowers.
Seriously, those blooms are as good as medicine. So, I hope you’re not tired of my gratuitous flower posts, because they probably won’t end until all traces of snow have been banished.

5. It’s no secret I love books – it’s part of the Librarian code or something. I don’t just love reading them, however. I love how they look and smell and feel.
They are my favorite decorating accessory. I think books add so much texture, personality, and hominess to any corner of a house.

In lue of passing this award along to a specific group of blogs, I’d like to pass it on to all of you, in the hopes that you’ll let me in on an interesting fact about you. So do tell, how does your personality show up in your decorating preferences? I’m super curious!

Is that a new rug under the table I see??? Beautiful! I too hate shoes when I'm in the house. Love your pics- especially of the fields by your house because it makes me feel like spring. :)
