Stylish award

Wednesday, January 26, 2011
Two days ago Rebecca from the lovely blog Acanthus & Acorn surprised me with this
award! If she had not received it herself right now, I would have handed it to her as well! Go and see for yourself!

Thank you very much! I am tickled pink! It gives me such pleasure to know that you think my blog stylish.

And occasionally I am doubting my efforts, measured on the amount of readers or followers. I know, perhaps I should just not look at those numbers, forget to compare myself, but, it does sneak in....
Then this award came and I am lifted and thrilled!
Writing 7 things about me? Something I haven't told you yet?

1) I am a country person at heart! I would love to live in a house in a bucolic setting! Like this pretty country home!

2) I love solitude! Being by myself is not daunting, I love to work, read or explore alone. Do not get me wrong, I love company and my family around, but I need a lot of time alone to think and write.

3) I love simple, old fashioned pleasures: Reading everywhere, walking, watching movies, coffee at home with friends, lemonade in the garden, a swing, cooking a favorite meal. I love to be home. In my heart I am from another era...

4) I am a collector. Not just the china, books and silverware, but I seek memories, store them in my mind, look for visual reminder of my past, a world which is really gone. Remember, I grew up in Dresden, East Germany! As I get older, I try to remember these strange times more often.

5)I do not think myself a fashionable person, I am an individualist, part bohemian, part 1930's chic...I like to dress pretty, but fashionable? My style icons are the woman of the Bloomsbury group, Charlotte Rampling, Sophia Coppola....

6)I LOVE cafes! The atmosphere, the people, the cakes....did I mention that I love chocolate yet?

7) I am a romantic....

Caspar David Friedrich: Woman before the Rising Sun.
