One Lovely Blog Award

27 Jun

Who?

ME?

Little ole me who started this blog eighteen months ago with seven loyal readers?

Why, yes, me!

I was awarded the “One Lovely Blog Award” by Michelle at Michelleswordpressyay. Michelle’s blog is about her life and adventures living in Connecticut and working in NYC. It reminds me of my time working in SF and I love to see her beautiful images and the creative craft ideas she comes up with. Certainly a blogger after my own heart. How can you not love a blogger who, in her about page, states “Burritos: Details and photos of the burritos that have changed my life.” Thank you, Michelle for the acknowledgement and tip of the hat by giving me the One Lovely Blog Award. And congrats on receiving the award yourself just a few short weeks ago!

The Guidelines of the One Lovely Blog Award

  • Thank the person who nominated you and link back to them – already done… I’m rocking this checklist!
  • Share 7 things about yourself – asking an only child to talk about herself is like asking a kitten to not be furry.

  • Nominate 10-15 bloggers you admire – fifteen is, um, a lot. But, check out the ten blogs I nominated below.
  • Contact your chosen bloggers to let them know – I can manage that.
7 Things About Me
  1. I am a kitty parent to the sweetest little calico named Lula and a large gray tabby named Hendrix.
  2. Fifty three days ago I got married (and the groom is a pretty cool guy – so far, so good). I’m 74% on my way to tying Kim Kardashian’s respectable marriage record of 72 days. Watch out, KK – I’m coming for you!

  3. I’m a Ginger. Having red hair is awesome. I once dated a guy who suggested I dye my hair blonde. Let’s say he didn’t stay around much longer after that.
  4. I sewed 150 napkins for our wedding reception. It took months of ironing and pinning fabric, then pumping the sewing machine’s accelerator,  but I wouldn’t trade the effort for the world.

  5. I have a degree in English and minor in Economics. I have worked in finance almost the entire 7 years I’ve been out of college. The creativity I’m inspired to share on Teal and Tulle keeps me balanced with the practicality of my day job.
  6. If on a desert island, the three foods I would not be able to live without would be brown rice, eggplant and chocolate tart frozen yogurt – specifically from here.
  7. On that note, while I grew up in a small town, I spent my early and mid 20s in San Francisco. Now that I am no longer there, I realize it was my home and I miss it every day of my life. Maybe someday I’ll make my way back there.

10 Blogs I follow/admire thanks for the entertainment, great ideas and inspiration

  1. Pink Parsley
  2. Sadie and Dasie
  3. Birch Fabric
  4. On the Corner of Haight and Hyde
  5. Healthy Nine to Fiver
  6. Linda Vernon Humor
  7. SheDrinksHeEats
  8. Made by Mike
  9. Beauty and the Best of the Rest
  10. Love and I Do
