Just about bordering on odd, I see things through different eyes.The heading says it all - I live, I love, I craft, I am me...


Two Good Reads

Hi there - a quick post to say a delighted

to Cathy from The House with the Blue Door  for nominating me in 'The two Good Reads' tag. Thank you Cathy - there are so many lovely bloggers out there that I feel privileged to have been chosen :) Cathy said she found it difficult to choose and I agree with her, there are so many inspiring and entertaining blogs out there.

My first choice is Going Gently - who's daily tirade can have me veering from hysterically laughing until I can barely breathe to quietly feeling saddened by his acutely observed vignettes of life. He is definitely worth a visit make sure you have a large mug of tea/coffee or any tipple of your choice and imbibe yourself in his life - it will be worth it!

My second choice is Sara from Sarajcrafts. Sara and I seemed to click and often email each other. A gentle blog with lovely photos of flowers, gardens and craft, days out and visits. She shares her life with a sports mad teenager and Smudge the cat. 

Thank you again Cathy for nominating me !

**My original first choice had been Threads through My Life - a private blog, so only accessible to a few (and I am one of the lucky ones) however I need her to know what wonderful words and stories she weaves of her daily life. Her photos and her crafting are amazing. She is someone who inspires me in both in the blogisphere as well as in my life - xx


  1. You're very welcome, and your nomination is well-deserved! I've enjoyed reading your blog since I started my own a year ago and am now heading off to visit the two you've recommended :)

  6. Congratulations! And to John and Sara.

    John's blog is a favourite of mine too, and he doesn't live too far from me, when I head out that way I always think how splendid it would be if I bumped into him.

  7. Well done you!! A stunned (and quite pleased!) Threads Through My Life person leaving you a comment! Thanks for thinking of me but I am a mere beginner and will keep my blog private! I cannot believe you find any inspiration in my erratic ramblings and un-normal life! Please take full credit for starting me off in blogsphere. Long may yours continue. Thanks.
