Honest Scrap Award

FrecklesChick nominated me for this award earlier this month, and I started a post on UneVieChic, but forgot to finish it!  Thank you FC for nominating me!  

The rules:
* Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award.
* Share “10 Honest Things” about myself.
* Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have inspired me.
* Tell those 7 people they’ve been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving.

Okay, here are 10 Honest Things About Myself, Some a bit kooky!

1.  I hate the color orange for fashion or major decorating (like furniture) because of my skin tone.  I think you should have furniture that makes you look good, and orange sure as hell does not!  (however I love little pops of it in a room)
2.  I'm vain, I love mirrors, and I've thought about doing a whole wall of old windows with mirrors in them to bounce light around.  
3.  I am trying to purge things from our home.  I have way too many dishes, clothes, books, etc.  Look for giveaways and gifting on each blog soon!
4.  I stole a pub glass (pint) from the bar in Brandon on my 25th birthday.  Shoved it in my purse, and have plans to etch something on it to remember that night.
5.  I used to never wear anything more than once before washing it.  Then in college I could wear the same pair of jeans for a week or so without washing, and now after living in a hotel for over a month I can say I have shirts and dresses that I wore a few times before washing.  What can I say?  I don't really sweat, and I don't really get anything on them.  I always do the sniff test.  If I can't smell anything, and they just smell like cotton or my perfume, then they get worn again.  I've noticed my clothes seem to wear out less this way! (and apparently it's the way women used to roll, just hanging things up to air out)
6.  I've become a fan of tights if for no other reason than I love my dresses and don't want to have to give them up, even in this crappy weather.
7.  I'm with FC, I really don't get the ikat craze.  I love pattern, but it just seems messy to me.  I think this entire time I've seen maybe 2 things that I thought, eh, they're okay about. Strangely the pic on her blog is one of them.
8.  I want a baby.  But I like the way my body is shaping up.  Not sure where this will lead...
9.  I hate being around smokers without having a cigarette myself.  It sounds crazy, but the smoke bothers me, but as soon as I have a cigarette myself then I no longer notice theirs (maybe because my lungs are closing up, so I'm not taking in theirs).  This makes being around my best friend difficult, since I tend to smoke then.  
10.  I have over 2,000 images and PDF files saved on the computer over the last few months.  All crafts or inspiration photos for the home.  I'm slowly going through and organizing them, but it's a pain.

My nominations:

1. Bobbi at KidToGrownUp.  
2. Sarah at MisplacedTexan
3. The Feather Report
6. Lindsey at EverythingLEB
