Honest Scrap Award - After Receiving It I'm Passing It On

Lakeitha, over at Home To Three Duncan Boys, has awarded my blog the Honest Scrap Award. Thanks!!

Here are the rules I must follow, upon receiving this award:

1) Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award.
2) Share "10 Honest Things" about myself.
3) Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.
4) Tell those 7 people they've been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving.

And now...oh goody, a chance to rant and rave about random items that don't fit into a post on design!! Here's my "10 Honest Things" about myself:

1) As I just mentioned on Twitter, I can not stand being in the middle of a conversation with someone, having an interruption occur...followed by the person forgetting that we were in the middle of a sentence. How rude!!!!!!
2) I am at my core a shy and reserved one believes me, except my husband.
3) My life has surprised mostly good ways.
4) People who meet me have no idea I once spent long summers working in the Alaskan Fisheries.
5) My children are my greatest surprise to anyone reading this blog.
6) My husband is my biggest fan and source of support. Thanks!
7) Working Moms and Stay At Home Moms need to have more tolerance towards one another...really.
8) No one believes I met Jackie Onassis.
9) I am actually enjoying getting is liberating in so many ways.
10)I grew up quite poor and always dreamed (obsessed) of owning my own home. Never thought it would happen...perhaps this explains my slight preoccupation with creating beautiful places to reside.

And now I would like to present the Honest Scrap Award to the following blogs:

1) Room Remix - The Blog
2) Kelly + Olive
3) Little Cottage BG
4) Living With Lindsey
5) The Best Of Your Before & Afters
6) Design Esquire
7) Addicted To Decorating

Make sure to check out these blogs if you are not familiar with them! And tell me...

What would be on your list of Ten Honest Things?

    Its So Very Cheri

  2. I don't know what to say... Thanks so much! I guess I can't tell you 10 things about me in this comment, because I need to say them on my blog. :-) Fun to hear 10 things about you though! Thanks again! Hope you're having a good weekend.

  3. Who Knew!!! You're way! I enjoyed reading the 10 things about you. I wonder how many blogs are going to have this topic! It's like a chain letter. Who will stop it?!

  4. I believe u that u've met Jackie O! LOL Grew up very poor,too & longed to have a beautiful home. The home of my dreams is still in the making (in my mind!) but so happy that u have yours. :)So fun to read 10 honest things about u.

  5. Thank you so very, very much!
    Will have to claim my award in
    a few days :o)

  6. I think your blog is fantasic and I'm completely inspired. Also, I'm thrilled to find your tip about the junction box converter kit (I found it exploring older posts). I purchased new fixtures for the kitchen over a year ago, and was not able to put one of them in over our sink because it did not have a junction box. I put it in the storage thinking someday I'd get an electrician to come and convert the recessed lighting for the fixture. I guess I should have done more research-- thanks so much for sharing!!! I'm also excited to think about the possibilities for the rest of the house. I love what you've done with all the fixtures in your house- it really does transform the room.

  7. Wow, thanks! What a fun thing to wake up to Monday morning!


Now I Would Love To Hear What You Think!
