Blog Award

Thank you to Pam from Cherish Toronto for nominating me for a Liebster Award. A Liebster award is given to blogs with less than 200 followers as a way to spread connections and bring attention to great blogs.

I have been reading Pam's blog for a while now and really love her Sarah's House recaps and I am always in awe of the vintage furniture she finds.

Rules: Thank the giver and link back.
          Mention five blogs of your choice that you have passed the award to, contact them by commenting
          on their blogs.
          Reveal 5 random facts about yourself.

Feel free to alter the rules if you choose, I could only find 4 blogs after hours of searching! I guess all the blogs I follow are popular.
I wasn't sure how to really tell what blogs had fewer than 200 followers so I hope I don't offend anyone.

My picks....

Erica from Lux Life. Erica is a designer, mother of 5 boys (and I though 3 boys was a lot!) and from what I can tell we share a love of big watches. Erica writes 2 other popular blogs. Pay her a visit, you won't be disappointed.

Haley in Wonderland is a new blog to me. I some how ended up on Haley's blog and was surprised to see that she is a McGill student (my alma mater) and she takes excellent photos. Jump over and say Hi.

Next, we have a husband and wife duo over at This Dusty House, follow along as these newlyweds renovate their first home in Toronto. I always love to see what can be done with old Toronto homes.

Beatrice from The Crafty Bee.  Fellow Canadian Beatrice was just mentioned in Style at Home magazine. Way to go Beatrice, I love that mag. Check out her DIY projects.

Five random facts about me....

I am afraid of dogs. I know, lame.
I love the Toronto Maple Leafs.
At university I was a member of the sorority Kappa Alpha Theta.
I own 2 vintage typewriters. (I used typewriter font in my banner)
I love, love, love anything British and have been known to call the bathroom the "Ladies" and use the word "arse" way too much.

Have a great day.
