I've been tagged!

Hey…I'VE BEEN TAGGED! Thanks kathi! It’s been a few days and I’m finally getting around to answering the questions ~ and then I am supposed to tag 8 others…here we go!

What is your current obsession?
furniture…I am on the hunt for some pieces for our new cottage…vintage-y, beach-y, painted wood and cotton fabrics…all light and airy and perfect for blue waters and sandy feet…a friend told me about Stanley Furniture’s Coastal Living pieces which I am coveting in the seaglass colors…makes my heart go pitter-pat!
What is your weirdest obsession?
love the tv program LOST…my husband thinks it’s the weirdest show ever
What are you wearing today?
white cotton jeans, white sleeveless tank and light blue cotton cardigan…and a great pair of keds canvas wedges, kind of ivory with yellow, orange and blue on the heel…I love them!
What's for dinner?
don’t know…my hubby is cooking…
What would you eat for your last meal?
nachos and salsa…hands down
What's the last thing you bought?
a fridge for the pantry in the new cottage…I wish it was something more beautiful such as some gorgeous felted flower brooches made by one of the members of our shop. I’ve been drooling over them all morning. I’m thinking Christmas gifts…
What are you listening to right now?
birds, eva cassidy, footsteps on the wooden floors of the shop
What is your favorite ice-cream flavour?
chocolate… aren’t I a deviant?
What do you think of the person who tagged you?
kathi is such a woman ~ I am in awe of her amazingly talents, she is kindhearted, interested in others, thoughtful, a wonderful esty friend and I think we share many common interests…
If you could have a house totally paid for, fully furnished anywhere in the world, where would you like it to be?
by an ocean with endless sea views, white sand dunes, and warm salty breezes…
If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour, where would you go?
Paris, to a café on the banks of the Seine, to sip coffee and gaze at the Eiffel Tower…
Which language do you want to learn?
French, of course…
What is your favorite colour?
without question, GREEN, in all it’s wonderful shades and hues…I also am deliciously in love with aqua, turquoise, robin’s egg blue…you know. I am a bit of a color-aholic so it is difficult to stick to just one (that’s part of my cottage decorating dilemma ~ can’t seem to settle on a ‘scheme’ )
What is your favorite piece of clothing in your own wardrobe?
an aqua heavy cotton pullover sweater ~ love it! I’m also a fan of my jeans and black yoga pants…and a great purple leather jacket I’ve had for a couple of years (the lining is fantastic too! )
What's your favourite magazine?
I couldn't pick just one…I just love magazines in general ~ beautiful colorful photos, interesting bits about everything a person can imagine, travel, home, garden, body and soul, art…love them all! A perfect summer afternoon includes a stack of magazines, my back porch, a cup of tea and a worn quilt…
If you had £100 now, what would you spend it on?
silver, beads, beautiful papers, vintage bits for the cottage
Favorite artist/s?
children ~ their paintings and creations are so free…
Do you admire any one's style?
I admire people who know who they are and dare to show it....but aren’t too attached to it.
Describe your personal style?
my style is rather casual, lots of cotton, comfy fabrics and colors, easy living...
What are you going to do after this?
drive to the lake
What are your favourite movies?
The Matrix, Thomas Crown Affair, The Shawshank Redemption, Finding Nemo
What's your favourite fruit?
papaya and raspberries…not together
What inspires you?
color, light, words, stories, new ideas, rusty stuff, beautiful design, change…
What music do you like this week?
eva cassidy , although it’s been more than a week…
What is your dream job?
I want to spend my time doing things I enjoy and somehow, making that my ‘job’… flexible hours so I can work half the night if I want or wear my pj’s, or meet friends for lunch… I’m happiest when I’m making/creating something fun, pretty, colorful, visually pleasing, writing, pulling some grand plan together or organizing something… is any of this a job?
What is stopping you?
absolutely nothing
if you could change something in the world to make it a better place what would that be?
I would want people to understand our differences, as humans, are all on the surface ~ we share one spirit and this one planet.
What are you doing tomorrow?
lunch with a friend, listings for the opening of my new etsy shop...laundry
