5 Things You Didn't Know About . . . .

This week we are interrogating speaking with Karen from The Graphics Fairy!  I'm sure there are many of you who {like me} love the graphics that Karen shares with us all.  They translate into such beautiful and creative projects.




Favorite music at the moment:  I usually listen to a lot of Enya, but I just picked up a CD by Ingrid Michaelson which I love.


If you didn't live where you do, where would you live:  I actually obsess about this one a lot! I would really like to live somewhere a little warmer and closer to the ocean. As I get older I find that I just can't take the Winters like I used to!


Favorite cocktail:  Ummm well, I don't actually drink. But, a friend of mine makes these amazing Basil Lemonade drinks in the Summer, they're mean't to be made with Vodka, but he makes mine without, and it's sooo delicious!

Best advice you ever received:  Do what you love. Sometimes it takes awhile to figure out what that is, but once you do it can really change your life.


Person you most admire:   My grandmother. She was so good at so many things. She was super crafty, she could weave her own fabric, sew, crochet etc. She was fluent in French, and was an expert gardener. She was very knowledgeable about antiques and she was quite savvy at real estate too!

Thanks so much Karen for sharing 5 Things we didn't know about you!

That Basil Lemonade sounds yummy, and I'm with Karen on wanting to live somewhere warmer and closer to the ocean! It was fun to find out more about her. Her grandma sounds like a great lady too.

Hey, Kathy I recently started blogging and reading blogs...Yeah I know where have I been these last 5 yrs. Well I just started reading your blog. I'm from Barbados in the Caribbean, no winters here, so come on down for a visit.

Oh I love Ingrid too! The Graphics Fairy is indeed a lovely site.

Jane said...

I've got to go visit her! I keep saying I will, but never do! Any site with free stuff is like "the bomb"! Um...I think I'm the only blogger who drinks - lol! Remember when you featured me, I posted a photo of the hubby and I drinking martinis! :)

I liked learning a few things about you. I love my cabinets painted, but I could not sell my honey on the ideal... he should not have gone out of town.
