to tag & be tagged

i'm flattered to have been tagged by my new blogging friend, nunu pepe ~ a south africa based design adoration junkie {whom i'd love to go visit someday}.
as some of you may recall, i got a similar tag last year, but making it an annual thing is fine with me. and besides of course there are way more than 7 additional quirky little known things about me that i can share. :o)

here is the nitty gritty:
link to the person who tagged you and post the rules on your blog. share seven random and/or weird things about yourself. tag seven people at the end of your post and include links to their blogs. let each person know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.



here are my seven:
1. learning to tango has changed my life for the better in more ways than i could have possibly imagined and now i doubt i'll ever stop doing it.


2. i am easily chilled and i just can't stand being cold. so i do many seemingly ridiculous things to keep warm {i have a heating pad at my desk chair at work, for instance}

3. i love hot chocolate ~ especially mexican hot chocolate. i drink it a lot.

4. i wear a white lab coat every day at work {& so does everyone else i work with, including orlando}

5. i speak italian & once lived in milan, italy

6. i can never be too long away from large bodies of water and deep forests

7. if i was challenged to buy the best piece of furniture for under $300 within 5 minutes or else i wouldn't be able to keep it, i'd go directly here and buy the ghost chair {designed by philippe starck}



the fascinatingly talented ladies i'm passing the tag torch on to are {in no particular order}:

vineeta artnlight , sew sally , tangobaby , chloe, the froth , diana muse , emma's designblogg , decorno

:) Lab coat? i'd never have suspected :) And keep me away from nature vacations & i get withdrawal symptoms too :) And that chair kept in front of that mirrored cabinet is such a brilliant combination- dont blame u for lusting it :) like tango baby-u've caused me to count my quirks too & alas it will soon be public :)

How interesting - I, too, can't be away from the ocean or mountains for long. And I am a fan of hot chocolate and am always cold, even when those around me feel toasty and warm. I have low blood pressure, which may have something to do with it. You look great in your lab coat!

hi shayna ~ good to hear from you! can't wait to see what new fabulousness you do with the cabin house in '08!
and yes, wool socks {and goose down slippers} are pretty much the best things ever.

hi chloe ~ so glad you're willing to join in the frivolity. at first i wasn't sure about the lab coat idea but almost at once it became likeable. now it's a habit for getting into work mode that i appreciate very much.

tangobaby ~ let's go tomorrow! and thanks for sharing your list ~ it's deelish!

studio wellspring said...

thanks so much, nunu pepe ~ gotta love it when a design blogger invites herself to visit. ;o)

vineeta ~ it's so fun to share and then find out what interesting things you have in common with fellow bloggers. i can't wait to learn more about you!

tara ~ you're so kind. and who knew we have even more things in common! i'd be so honored to share hot chocolate, wool sweaters, and ocean views with you someday.
