The MEME and keeping the flow ...

I've been tagged by LeAnn of SummersStudio. She was one of my initial blog contacts, encouraging me right from the start. I love her porcelain work and she is a wonderful friend.

It is very early Sunday morning, so before I head off to the flea market, here is the chance to discover my dark secrets. But first


Rules of the meme: Respond and rework. Answer the questions on your own blog; replace one question that you dislike with a question of your own invention; add one more question of your own. Tag some friends to keep the flow going, let them know they've been tagged.


What is your current obsession?
Further develop my skills in jewellery making.

What was the last thing you bought?
More beads.

What is your least favorite color?
I’d have to say red and pink are the colours I relate to least.

What are you listening to right now?
The birds singing their spring songs.

Favorite vacation spots?
Tuscany in Italy and Andalusia in Spain. (Now take it easy, girls, they’re closer for me than Florida!)

What are you reading right now?
Wrap, Stitch, Fold and Rivet by Mary Hettmansperger. Waiting for: In This Garden by Angela Cartwright and Sarah Fishburn.

What four words would you use to describe yourself?
Self-doubting, difficult, compassionate, art-lover.

What is your current guilty pleasure?
Making jewellery and spending too much time on the internet.

What would you do if the internet was irreparably damaged and you had to find another way to connect?
OMG, what a nightmare! Maybe try a message in a bottle? Leave notes tied to branches of the trees?

Where are you planning to travel next?
No plans at present. It would be nice if we could manage a trip to Tuscany.

What flower are you most anxious to see bloom this spring?
Already blooming – my treasured trilliums. They don’t naturally grow in Europe.

What are you most happy doing?
Visiting a flea market with my wonderful husband; making jewellery and schmusing with my cats.

Care to share some wisdom?
“You must give birth to your images. They are the future waiting to be born.” Rainer Maria Rilke

I've tagged:

Debbie at Prairie Emporium
Doreen at Backyard Beads

I hope they will feel moved to share the love.

Have a wonderful day, I am off to the flea market, treasure hunting!

Wonderful Renate! Thanks for sharing a little about yourself. I hope you had fun. I love trillium as well but can't grow them at all here. Too hot. Too dry. Hope the flea market expedition is a success. Hugs, LeAnn
