I'm Scrappy!

Carrie over @ Brick City Love gave me my first blog award! This award excites me more than a steamy cup of coffee first thing in the morning! Thank you Carrie!

So here’s the deal.
Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award. {done!}

Share “10 Honest Things” about myself.

Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.

Tell those 7 people they’ve been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving.

My 10 Honest Things

1. I need coffee in order to make it through the day.

2. I have a problem that happens when someone compliments me on our house. Immediately after the compliment I start telling them what I would change and don’t like about that room. I should just learn to take a compliment gracefully.

3. My car is stick shift, 8 yrs old, has 185K miles and I LOVE it.

4. Our house will take years to finish, and most of the time I’m OK with it. A few times however, I've sat in the middle of the Wee house living room and could feel the overwhelming size of the entire project consume me.

5. I cry over everything. Happy things, sad times, surprises, good movies, emotional commercials, tough situations, seeing my nephew smile at me for the first time… break out the tissues cause I am a faucet.

6. My first furniture “set” ever was bought at some converted garage store named Quality Discount Furniture when I was 21. *I.Hate.It.* Never again.

7. I actually like showing the epic failures of our house renovations on the blog. Failures are an important part of the reality of home renovations and are things that I think too often get glossed over.

8. I like break out in spontaneous dances sometimes. My dances usually horrifyingly amusing.

9. I can’t look through real estate listings without seeing fixer uppers that I would love to get my hands on.

10. I bought four wedding dresses. So shameful.

And the “Honest Scrap” is thusly awarded to the following fellow bloggers.
1. five2eight
2. shore(house) chic
3. little green notebook
4. The DIY Show Off
5. House Obsession
6. Bryn Alexandra
7. The Inverted Librarian


  1. Congratulations! I need coffee to make it through too :) ~K

  2. fun! thanks for the award!! now i just need to come up with 10 things... :-)

    and yes, coffee is a must. sometimes i try to pretend like i don't need it on the weekends - that usually just results in a super long nap. although sometimes a nap is even better than coffee.
