Hidden Beauty and Stylish Awards

The Australian "Country Style" magazine
would have to be one of my fave magazines
as they usually manage to capture
some french elegance to delight me!
And this one realllly got me!
I "love" it!
I so wish I could have some
architectural detail like this one.
Such authenticity

Amazing light fittings

And the windows of my dreams

It is in the January issue 2011

And now a huge thankyou to two fantastic bloggers
who I hold in high esteem
and always get such a buzz from their blogs
( especially since they are so beautifully french style)
I was so honoured that they would pick me
amongst their ten to choose
With accepting this award, there are three rules ~
1) Thank and link back to the person whom awarded you
2) Share 7 things about yourself
3) Award 10 great bloggers that you've recently discovered
4) Contact the above and tell them of the award

So the 7 things i share about me are
1- Born in Western Australia
2- I have an amazing toy poodle Lilly who is a constant source of delight
3 I really care about sustainability so I try where I can to do my bit eg compost tumbler, recycling, plant trees and educate our young
4- Mad about shopping especially in Claremont and Subiaco
5- I'm a very visual person but sometimes I overload my brain
6- Love creating and lately that has been my jewelry collection
7- Always enjoy entertaining especially as I am blessed to have such gorgeous friends
who make it such a treat

And now to my ten
I would like to honour
