Tag, I'm It!


I've been tagged by my wonderful friend Ms De Vil and given this blog badge of honor! No one seems to know what the deal is with the Honest Scrap sign or what it means exactly. Other than if you get tagged with it, it means you're awesome. (I made that part up, but seems pretty spot-on.)

Now that I've been tagged, I have to link back to the person who gave it me and list 10 facts about myself. Then I pass it along (ie: tag!) to 5 fellow bloggers who continue onward, copying the badge to their blog, linking back to me, posting 10 things about themselves, so on and so forth, if they want to join the fun! (And they WILL, if they know what's good for 'em.) Hopefully one or 2 of you will play.

So. 10 especially random things about me:

1.) My fingertips are "double jointed" and I can bend the tips up almost 90 degrees while my hands are flat on the table.

2.) I was born with deep brown eyes but they've been continually fading over the years to dark green now, with no explanation from doctors.

3.) I wear vintage clothing and/or accessories every day and own more vintage cardigans than god. (Assuming he's a sweater man.)

4.) I have no middle name. Crazy hippie parents.

5.) I collect many things, but obsessively collect anything that's vintage 50's original pink. My prize possession is my 50's pink Sylvania Duelette TV!

5.) I've never won anything, not even a scratch-off lottery ticket.

6.) I lived in England by myself for months while I took art history classes.

7.) Swedish fish make me leap with joy.

7.) I hate the word "goodies" and "sleuthing". Like fingers on a chalkboard.

8.) I'm happiest when it's grey and cloudy outside.

9.) I'm an anglophile at heart and love all things Celtic/Irish/UK/Medieval, etc.

10.) I hate cats. Sorry, but I do.

Here are 5 blogs I recommend, all great for different reasons, and let me say picking only 5 was not easy! If you're not on the list this time around, please don't be hurt or offended! I hope to give everyone a shout-out at some point. So in no particular order, I suggest:

*Sugar & Spice

*Radiation Cinema

*Welcome to Deluxeville

*All She Wants To Do Is Rock

*97 Things To Do Before I Turn 97


  1. Thanks. I'll try to do this when I get the chance. Hope you had a cool weekend. Cheers!

  2. I was awarded the " honest Scrap" as well I did a little hunting and found the meaning of it.

    "Scrap means left over, fragments, discarded material. Many times truth and honesty are discarded material, considered fragments and left over. People like us need to tell it like it is, and let the scraps fall where they will.

  3. Thank you for the mention, darlin'! x

  4. You're welcome, Miss T!

    Keith~ no biggie if you don't get the time to do it. It's just a fun little thing, so no worries!

  5. A-ha, so that's it Rosina, thank you for the info! That's a pretty rad meaning!

  6. Oh no I got double teamed on this! I better git er done!


  7. It turns out that after reading the ten things about you, you're my dream girl. A vintage lovin' anglophile who hates cats and digs cloudy days? Where have you been all my life? Hubba hubba!
