Liebster blog award :D

Hi everyone,
A couple of days ago the lovely Steph over at her blog Show And Tell nominated me for the Liebster blog award! I was so happy it was so lovely to receive the award again :D
Thank you Steph!
So now for the 11 random facts.....

1 . I like to watch Big Fat Gypsy weddings as I love the dresses on there (made by Thelma Madine and gang- I have actually read her book :) as I aspire to be able to make cool creations like that in the future!

2. I like vintage cardigans and have a kind of collection of them coming along. I have 5 at the moment, I have; a cream one, a purple one, a dark pink one, a white one and a blue one.

3. I have recently started watching old films like 'Calamity Jane', 'Gone with the wind' and 'Seven Brides for Seven Brothers' and am thoroughly enjoying all the songs and costumes in them!

4. I have a new found love for fudge after the fancy stuff I bought in the Isle of Wight and can't wait to go back and get some more (I also want to try making some of my own soon) :P

5. I am currently in the process of trying to make my own corset style bodice using my draping stand- it is going OK so far :)

6. During when I was younger (at different points) I thought I wanted to be an; astronaut, a marine biologist/animal expert, a bat conservation worker ( random I know- don't ask!), a roller coaster designer, a nail technician and a personal trainer! Hehehe I had lots of ideas but now I know what I ACTUALLY want to do for the rest of my life- costume and dressmaking/being a seamstress :)

7. One of my favourite things to do is go to the theatre and I really enjoy having the little tub of ice cream with sweets at 1/2 time.

8. I really like Lindt chocolate balls and the bunnies/bears they bring out at Christmas and Easter. I also like the seashell chocolates :)

9. I LOVE raisins and sultanas (sprinkling them and bits of chocolate on vanilla ice cream is nice :)

10. I like the old comedy show 'mind your language' we got it on DVD recently and all the characters are so great- hehehe I reckon being in that class would be super fun and being friends with everyone.

11. My lovely dad still makes my lunch for me everyday and I have a lego lunchbox which it goes in.
