Our little girl, Piccalina
2.) Writing fiction is actually my first love. My greatest and most intimate moments have been spent alone, introspectively creating another world on paper. While much of writing for publication has creative limitations, writing for oneself does not. To be given the reward of time and space to write is a real gift I have at some times had, but not always. If someone asked what I wanted most in the world for myself it would be just this: time and space to write my own kind of fiction.
3.) I'm an avid fashion buff but give me fine china any day over jewelry. Don't get me wrong, I love beautiful gems and stones but don't particularly relish owning any. When my husband and I met, one of his first gifts to me was the most beautiful Flow Blue he picked up in a local antique shop. Since then we've been collecting so many pieces our home looks like a museum. There is something uplifting about drinking tea or coffee out of something so precious. Also, my clients get tea in these cups and love it . . .
4.) This is totally embarrassing. I'm a fashion designer but hate tags and labels. I mean that literally. I don't like shirts, skirts or any piece of clothing with a label in it--not even those that say, Dior. When I was a kid, I had a morbid fear of them, so much so, my mother had to cut all the tags out of my clothing. Are we being a tad Howard Hughes-like in this respect or what ?
5.) I love good coffee. It is the highlight of my morning. Right now as we speak and write, I have a pot of Colombian perking away and boy does it smell great.
6.) I yearn to time travel. When I die--or by some miraculous intervention God lets me go back in time-- I want to drop right smack dab into 1920 and dwell till around 1950 or so (maybe 1960). What I want most is to smell, breathe, and see the architecture and interiors when they were new; watch how folks behaved toward one another. Maybe I would be visible and interact, maybe not. I haven't figured that one out yet . . .
7.) I'm a baseball addict. Every Spring I look forward to watching Derek Jeter do his extraordinary sport/dance thing out on the field when he plays shortstop. GO YANKEES!
Okay so, here are my seven nominations for the Kreativ Blogger Award:
