Right I promised this a few days ago now so here it is at last
Firstly the ever so stylish Nabby from This Old Life kindly gave me the Liebster Blog award.
You must if you have not already, go and visit her blog, she makes the most stunning 1930's outfits which are beautiful in every detail, you will be amazed and very jealous of her skill I promise!
Next, the lovely Miss Katie from Little Red Squirrel was kind enough to give me three awards in one! Miss Katie is another gal who's blog you must visit! She's one multi-talented lass, she knits, she sews and she embroiders like a dream, just check out her saucy Pin up girls they will make you want to take up your needle and thread right away!
Part of the award was to list some facts about yourself, so here we go:
1. I wear glasses, there I have said it, Yep I am as blind as a bat without them but it's rare that you'll ever catch me wearing them in photos as I just haaate em! But just for you...
|What do you mean Jarvis wants his specks back?|
2. My all time favourite Movie director is Alfred Hitchcock, I Just love every one of his films (though I still haven't watched Phyco yet, I'm too scared). Also, I was born in the same part of London, Leytonstone as Hitch, quite a few years later might I add!
3. My favourite book to date is Enigma by Robert Harris, I read it a few years ago and I was completely captivated, it has made me slightly obsessed with learning all about the Enigma machines and Bletchley park, I'm sure I will bore you all about this very soon. Ps, the film version is good but the book is soo much better!
4. I called this blog The Butterfly Balcony, as on the day that I was procrastinating on starting this blog I needed a name (obviously) and as I was gazing out of my window I spotted my very first Butterfly landing on one of the newly grown (all by me) flowers on my balcony, and so it became the Butterfly Balcony- I have to say now that veg growing is my new love I am not so fond of Madame Butterfly! My mum, however, is convinced it is so named because I can never settle on one thing for too long and am always flitting between projects, which to be honest actually works just as well as an explanation and makes it sound like I had put some thought into it!
So on to the new recipients of these awards:
I realise these are not up everyone's street, so I understand if you decline, either way, it is an opportunity for me to say how great you guys are and how much I enjoy reading your blogs!
