One Lovely Blog Award

Patricia from artdoesmatter nominated my blog for this award. Thanks Patricia!

The award requires that I describe 7 [random] facts about myself; that I nominate a number of other blogs that I think should win the One Lovely Blog Award, and to link back to the person who nominated me.  So here goes:

Patricia is an artist and writer, and she runs her own design business.  She works in metal & graphic design, and her blog explores her experiences in the the world of art and craft where she lives, in Philadelphia.  I love Patricia’s silver lockets- checkout her post and images of the locket on ‘Making New Work’  –

I developed my love of bakelite when I began making resin pieces…I was researching the history of plastics. I discovered Xylonite at the same time [first thermoplastic, developed 1869] – will appear on blog in due course. In between being a landscape architect and a collector, I teach landscape design at university. When I’m not doing any of that, I paint and sew. And renovate my house.  I am an insomniac.

Here’s my nominees for the award. It was tough being limited to 15, and they are in no particular order:

Scrap and Salvage Blog

The Nostalgia Exchange

Obsolescence Project

Urban Rustic


Retro Eco Chic

Forever Bound Art

The Artful Blog

Antique Owl

One Rusty Nail

The Fabulous Scavenger
