Yay A Blogger Award!!

A great big thank you to Trish from A Dream House for Trish for awarding me with this blogger award! I feel very honoured. Trish has a wonderful site with beautiful inspiring images. Her blog is about building and decorating her dream home in NSW and is filled with ideas and musings. If you haven't already opened her door then you should as you will feel very welcome.

As a recipient of this award I am to write 7 things about myself that you may not know, so here goes:

1. I have two gorgeous little girls who keep me very grounded.

2. My wonderful husband is my greatest support, without him I wouldn't have had the
courage to follow my dreams.

3. I am a complete (Virgo) neat freak and cannot think straight if my house is a mess!

4. My favourite movie is Notting Hill (I'm a romantic at heart), I will watch almost anything on the Lifestyle Channel and will admit to being a closet Neighbours fan (I know!).

5. In a former life I was an Accountant and without the help of my mother looking after my girls I wouldn't be able to study or work on Paper Tree Design. So I thank her everyday for her unwavering support.

6. I drive my husband crazy with my constant need to move and renovate.

7. Last but not least, I am addicted to interiors magazines ..... I have tried to cut back, I have tried to go cold turkey - if I don't have the latest issue I feel I might be missing something.

Phew - now I feel like I need a glass of red, only its the middle of the day! I guess I'll go for chocolate instead. Oh, yeh maybe I should add in a number 8 and divulge my borderline addiction to this substance - I try to sick to only one 'line' a night!

The next thing I need to do is pass this award on to 15 other bloggers. The following beautiful blogs all constantly inspire me. Some are filled with amazing before and afters, others are filled with wonderful images and artwork, some offer fantastic advice and reviews - all are written by passionate people who love to share their knowledge, skills and lives every week. If you haven't visited these sites please take the time as I am sure you will enjoy them as much as I do. By the way they are in no particular order :)

Sorry if some of you have already received this award - I guess it just means your blogs are well loved!

Thanks once again to Trish for passing this award on to me. I hope I do it justice. Michelle
