It’s not a mirrored disco ball trophy

kreativ_blog It’s not the mirrored disco ball trophy that Donny won on DWTS last night, but it’s almost as good… Pam at GardenDesigns+more gave us the Kreativ Blogger award!! Thanks Pam!!

Luckily, we don’t have to do the Jive and the Foxtrot and the Quickstep and the Tango before accepting the prize ;-) We just need to tell you seven things about us that you might not know, and then we have to pass the award on to seven other bloggers.

So here we go… Seven Things You May Not Know About Kelly & Victoria:

1. We’re both married to Brian. Kinky, eh?! No, no, they’re two different Brians :-) Although coincidentally, they’re both pretty good at building stuff and doing home renos. Except Victoria’s Brian actually gets his stuff done, while my Brian spends way too much time thinking about what he’s going to do…

2. We “met” on the Canadian House & Home forum. We’ve only met in real life once.

3. Victoria always saves her homework till the last minute. I work diligently away at mine days before it’s due, because I’m a brown-noser ;-)

4. Neither of us gets why anyone would pay $1,500 for a shiny yellow plastic-looking purse at Holt Renfrew.

5. Victoria doesn’t like chocolate. How is that possible??! Chocolate is essential to life!!! But we both agree that Farm Cottage Bakery in New Westminster, BC makes the BEST cinnamon buns!! Victoria introduced me to them when I was visiting BC. One time, just for the heck of it, she MAILED a half dozen to me. Cinnamon buns traveling via Canada Post right across the country -- how cool is that!?

6. Victoria loves Star Trek. I can’t stand Star Trek. Beam me outta here, dude!!

7. We look EXACTLY like the caricatures in our blog header in real life. Really!! ;-)

And now we’d like to pass the Kreativ Blogger award along to:

1. Donna at dh designs for giving new life to old furniture.

2. Puna at Life Signatures for her entertaining posts and lovely pictures. And because we seem to have been the same person in a previous life ;-)

3. Deb at Dumbwit Teller for her fun and creative blog posts. The ball is gonna rock!!

4. Kelly at Color Sizzle for being colourful :-)

5. Vitania at Verdigris Vie for sharing so many beautiful rooms with us.

6. Diane at Life’s Sweet Ordinary for her astounding photographs and camera encouragement.

7. Christy at A Lil’ Welsh Rarebit for the Foo!!

And an eighth blogger, because we can :-)

8. Gayle at Planet M Files for Timmy & Polly & the guinea pigs :-)

And what the heck, one more!!

9. Angela at Angela’s Peony Patch for making cool tassels :-)

Wow - thanks so much for including me ... hmmm ... I'm going to have to give this one some thought ...

Donna @ Paisley and Perspective said...

So.. my hubby's not named Brian, but he's alot like yours Kelly - too much thinking, not enough doing - sighhhh. The positive in that is I've learned patience - LOTS AND LOTS OF PATIENCE! :)

And Vicky, I, too, wait until the last minute for my homework - I wasn't exactly a great role model for my girls when I was going to school.

Love this post ladies!

You two have only met in person once? Wow. I thought you two knew each other from school or went way back some other way. Behold the power of the internet!

Dumbwit Tellher said...

Kelly & Victoria, thank you from the bottom of my Birkenstocks (it's a casual kind of day). As you know it's been a cruddy year but it's people like you that make it sooooo much brighter. Next time I'm in Seattle visiting my family, I'm trekking to B.C. for a that incredible cinnamon roll. That thing looks better than sex & I do think the hubs would agree. So surprised too that you both have only met once. Such a fun life we lead. xx

Christy said...

I'm so surprised you guys have only met once too! Wow! And thank you sooo much for including me in this award. The foo and I are honored!

Have a great weekend! I'm off to stuff my face with turkey and all the trimmings! YUMMY!

Verdigris Vie said...

Wow - Thanks much kelly & Victoria.. such an honour for you to include me in this award.

In person once? Amazing..:-)

Kelly@ColorSizzle said...

Thanks Kelly and Victoria for this award! I'm always inspired when I visit Design Ties {and I usually get a good laugh, too}! I'm very honored!

Puna said...

Thank you so much Kelly! It's better than a mirrored ball trophy! I'm going to put it on my sidebar in the next couple of days if I get the chance!

Happy Thanksgiving!


Greet Lefèvre said...

That was so nice to read! I enjoyed to learn to know you better!

Gayle said...

Thank you!

I think that's so interesting you have only met each other in person once. And, how can Victoria not like chocolate?!

Michelle said...

OMG...I love this post! I'd love to have cocktails with both of you!!!

I'm also married to a Brian...not handy at all though...but I knew this going in :)

No chocolate Victoria...eeek! My Brian hates it as well.

So nice you both did a post together!

Very best,

Janis@White Alder[Home] said...

Funny post, and I'm shocked you didn't know each other before starting the blog (just like the ladies over at desire to inspire)..........the internet really is amazing.

Hope you both have a wonderful weekend.

PS: I have a brother named Bryan, does that count?

Bless your cotton pickin', Canadian Home Living, cinnamon bun hearts! :)
Or something like that! Thanks for the award and sure, I'll share a lucky 7 too. Give me a few days and I'll get myself organized!
