Tagged....a little bit about moi!

Anastasia of Anastasia Drawing and Dreaming tagged me (thanks!) and here are my responses:

What is your current obsession?Browsing ebay for old furniture. At the moment I'm looking for a retro sideboard however it seems that so is the rest of Australia. I keep bidding too low and missing out.

Who is the last person you hugged?My son just before I put him in his bed.

What's your favourite dinner?Like Anastasia, I too have a Greek background and it is ALL about sharing good food with good company. My favourite Greek dish is pastitsio, especially the way my mother makes it with extra creamy sauce - yum! I also love stuffed anything - tomatoes, potatoes, capsicums, eggplant. And I make a pretty mean pizza with chorizo sausages and haloumi cheese.

What was the last thing you bought? (to wear)This dress to wear to my son's christening.

What are you listening to right now?TV commercials.

What is your favourite weather?Rain (when I'm indoors). I love the sound of rain hitting the tin roof out the back of our house.


Say something to the person/s who tagged you?
Anastasia has wonderful style which is reflected in her Etsy products and blog. It's been lovely getting to know her through DUST along with other talented Australian sellers.

Tea or coffee?Both. A tall coffee milkshake is a must for me in the morning. I usually have *ahem* 2.5 teaspoons of coffee in it. By mid afternoon I've finished bouncing off the walls and that's when I usually have a tea.

What did you want to become as a child?An artist or fashion designer.

If you could go anywhere in the world for the next hour where would you go?
My mother's childhood home in Greece. It's empty at the moment but I would go to see if I can find any treasures of hers left there.

Who do you want to meet in person?
I have a couple of friends who are pregnant at the moment. I can't wait to meet their little ones when they arrive.

What is your most challenging goal right now?
Trying to find time to devote to my store. I've got so many ideas rolling around in my head but I'm lacking time to work on these designs.

What is your weirdest obsession?Having cupboard doors and drawers closed. Before I go to bed I'll check the kitchen to make sure the oven is turned off the cabinets are all shut.

Why did you start a blog?I used to bore friends and family with all my talk about interior design and the latest project I was working on at home. I decided to start a blog to document my progress and to, well, try to stop talking about it but I'm not sure I'm succeeding with that last part.

What is your blog about?
Mainly interior design and my home projects but also a little fashion and food when I find the time to cook something special as opposed to the reheated/defrosted meals we've been having lately.

Which blogs are you obsessed with at the moment?
I enjoy reading so many blogs. There is a lot of inspiration out there. I'm currently loving decor8, Making It Lovely, Swish & Swanky, This Young House, The Happy Home, Made By Girl, Simply Grove to name a few.

What is your dream job? (realistic or unrealistic)

My dream was to have my own business selling my own work which is what I have done. I don't know what took me so long to do it.

If you could change professions or careers, what would you like to try? (realistically speaking)Interior decorating/design although I'm not sure how I would do designing someone else's home.

Who is your favourite designer at the moment?
Fleur Wood. My most favourite collection is the Spring/Summer 2007/08 collection. I adore the tulle and lace dresses.

What's your favourite brand of jeans?
Nobody jeans seem to fit me well. I have a pair I love but no longer fit into since giving birth. I'd love to track the style down again and buy it in a larger size.

One thing that you would snitch out of someone's closest, with no regrets?
Hangers. You can never have enough and somehow mine always go missing.

What piece of designer clothing would you most like to own (new or vintage)
I know it will never happen but I would love to own Grace Kelly's wedding dress. I wouldn't try it on - just sit and stare at it.
