Award


I've been awarded The Versatile Blogger award by Lindsay. Please check her blog... it's full of fun tutorials, stories about her life and her art...


There are several rules to accepting this award and they are:
1. Add the award to your blog -- See sidebar.
2. Thank the blogger who gave it to you. -- Mille mercis, Lindsay!
3. Mention 7 random things about yourself. -- See below.
4. List the rules.
5. Award to 15 bloggers. -- See below.
6. Inform each of those 15 by leaving a comment on their blog.

So... here's the 7 random things about me :
1. I graduated as an elementary school teacher... saying I WILL NEVER EVER TEACH... and then went on to study sculpture... and now... well... I teach sculpture to teenagers and I love it!
2. As a kid I preferred playing with bows and arrows (that I made) than dolls... My mum told me that one of the few times she saw me playing with my dolls was when I sat them all on the sofa and then proceeded to shoot them all with my brother's toy gun... Herr Freund ... Freud (LOL Lucie... c'est ce qui arrive quand on se bat pendant 1h30 avec blogger... Je suis plus amie avec Jung que Freud!) would have a lot to say about that... after all he saw the child as a polymorphic pervert...
3. I grew up in a farm like setting. We had a lot of animals : sheeps, pigeons, chickens, rabbits, pigs, a cow, a donkey, a goat, a horse, dogs, cats and a monkey... and we rescued also an owl at some point and a crow... I learned a lot about life and death watching them... I remember being woken up in the middle of the night to witness the cow giving birth... and I remember the day we had to put down the cow, I remember the look in her eyes...
4. When we bought the cow, we bought another young calf ... we knew from the start that that calf will be reared for the meat... I liked him a lot... I guess I was sad when it was killed... but ate his meat anyway... and today his skin is in my living room... he's been dead for about 30 years now... his name was Ferdinand... (je mange toujours de la viande, Lucie... mais très peu...)
5. When I lived in town , I had a pet rat... I needed a pet and it seemed to me that a rat would not suffer to live in an appartement like a dog or a cat would... his name was Basil... because of Basil The Rat (one of my favorite episodes of Fawlty Towers).

6. I've always had a thing for rusty things, weird stones, bones, old things...
7. I don't think I will ever grow up... because most of the things I did as a kid- like drawing, crafting, collecting- I still do... only I'm better at them now..
I said most of the things... I don't shoot dolls anymore... only did it once and really don't remember it... so as far as I know... maybe my mum made up that story...

I pass along The Versatile Blogger award to these great bloggers:

There are many more awesome bloggers on my list... just check the sidebar
Now I'd like to know why blogger won't let me highlight words when I want to insert a link or change the size of the font... any idea?... I had to play with the html code and it takes ages doing so...
So do not worry if I don't leave a comment on each blog tonight... I just spent 1h30 writing this post...

Edit: I think I figured out why... I was using the old version of blogger... the new one seems to work better...

Congrats on the award. Rats really make good pets. I had a friend who had two, and they are quite intelligent.

Congrats on the award! Your view is truly unique and I love that!
Hmmm...I'll have to think a while to come up with 7 things about myself that anyone would want to read. Now that I have my new format, I'm not sure how to post the award other than in the post itself. I'll have to work on that one. Thanks for including me.
Hugs!

Love the idea of little you shooting dolls with arrows.
I always enjoy seeing how this crazy woman plays with her dolls:
