New blogs to read and an award

I have received this award a few times, and I just never get around to doing it.
Let's see...seven things you don't know about me...
1. I have traveled all over the US and Europe, but have never been to Canada or Mexico.
2. I hate rosemary- the smell and the taste.
3. I have a very large head for someone so small.
4. In 8th grade, I stopped growing- 5 ft 0
5. I am slowly overcoming my fear of cockroaches. It has taken me 8 years, but now I can go to sleep if I fail to smash one to death. Before, I would lie awake at night wondering where it was hiding. On the ceiling? Right over my face? Did my hair just move? What is that spot on the ceiling? (turn on light, find glasses, realize it is a shadow)
6. If I could be an animal, I would be a red fox.
7. I used to take ceramics classes and I loved it. I wish I had the money and the time to take more!

I feel like every single person in the blog world has gotten this, but if you haven't, add you name in the comments and I will link to you. I was nominated by Lisette and Rebecca!

Here are some new blogs I just started reading:

Those are all the good recent finds, though I may have left a few out! Leave me some links in the comments if you know some other new, fun blogs!


  1. OoOoOoh, thanks very much Molly! I enjoyed reading your seven things...I'm totally with you on the cockroach thing!

  2. Oh Molly I don't know how to thank you. I'm just so happy. This means so much to me. I fear I'm sounding like one of those Hollywood stars accepting an award on Oscar night.
    I have a rosemary bush in my garden that would not stop growing, so I don't suppose you would come fo dinner at my place when you are next in London. Also, you are not alone with the roach fear factor.

  3. Hey Molly... I'm 49 and I still haven't gotten over the kill it before I get back to sleep stage... I must search and destroy or there will be NO sleep for me!
    Good on you for conquering your fear (nearly!) lol!

  4. Nolly, I love the 7 things most people don't know about you! I tend to disagree that your head is so large, I think it is perfect.

  5. Congrats on the awards :) I'm the same with spiders as you are with cockroaches. Ack, they're so gross! lol

  6. That's funny about the cockroaches (I've never seen one in my life, thank goodness!) I feel that way about spiders. The worst was when I went to put on a dress I had hanging in my closet and there was a HUGE spider inside! I couldn't wear that dress for weeks.

  7. Thanks for listing me, Molly! I'm with you on the fox thing - once at church camp, we had to go around the circle and make up nicknames for ourselves that were an animal + our first name. Well, I finally settled on Vixen Valerie (because it seemed better than vulture), and I had to spend a lot of time convincing everyone that a vixen was also a female fox!

  8. I love following your blog... I always get excited when a new post of yours shows up in my RSS feed! :) I started a blog in February... www.fiveminutesmoreplease.blogspot.com. I just started sewing so I'm no expert by any means, but I'm having fun on my vintage-inspired blog posting vintage-inspired sewing projects! I'd love for you to check it out!

  9. Thanks for the shoutout! I love reading your blog, too.

  10. Thanks for the shoutout love! I'm with you on the cockroaches - I. cannot. handle. them. On a happier note, yay red foxes! They remind me of the old Nickelodeon cartoon, "David the Gnome."


Thanks for your thoughts and feedback!
