The super sweet Livi from Making Everyday Count gave me a blog award.  Woohoo! 
( Check out her blog to follow her adventures. She's always up to something fun!   THANKS, Livi! )

So here's 7 more random things about little ol' me:

I miss spending time in the darkroom.  I even  (kinda)  miss the stinky fixer smell.

I have a pretty huge fear of feet.  I hate them. 
(So instead here's a photo of my new favorite boots.)


I'm pretty sure I'm a musical late bloomer.  I was always more into movies during those times one is supposed to be all angsty and into music.  But now, I can't seem to get enough tune-age.

My lucky number is 4.

I've traveled a lot of Europe, but never made it Ireland.  I must remedy this!

I was born and raised outside of Detroit.  I miss it.  I love it.  It still has a hold over me.
This is one part of a great positive view of the city.

I like my martinis dirty.
(hee hee.)

I'm passing this award onto all of you, my dears.

You are the most stylish buncha bloggers ever!

{ are you as ready for the weekend as I am?? }

    Congrats on the blogger Award!

    You know my son has been a Tigers fan since he was really young, have no clue how it started he was born here in the NW?!?! (now he goes to school an hour and a bit away from Detroit.

    And, I have had this dream for a long time of one day buying one of those beautiful big old abandoned warehouses in Detroit and using it for a beautiful creative space/community centre, call me silly but I would love to do that :)

    So, Detroit holds a very special place in our family's heart too :)

    Have a lovely day, T. :)

    I just recently stumbled upon your blog, and it already looks like you deserved this award. Congratulations! Cannot wait to read more.

    P.S. I don't like feet either, but probably because mine are quite large and I can never find cute and affordable shoes to hide them inside of.

    You cracked me up with the darkroom thing. I am a secret darkroom stalker, for the two years I swtiched to ceramics in my college, I would sneak past the darkroom and pop my head in just so I can smell the developer. :):) And I will go with you to Ireland!!! Ha, I plan to go there eventually as well, too gorgeous to pass up!!
