I've Been Tagged!!

4.14.2012



Lisa Mende, of the fantastic blog Lisa Mende Designs, tagged me in a fun blogging game.  She tagged me and ten others.  We have eleven questions to answer and then we tag another eleven.  


1.  If you could have coffee and chat with a famous person who would it be and what you want to chat about?

Tina Fey, and I would want to just sit, sip coffee, and listen.  If Tina's not available, I'll go with David Sedaris.




2. What is a little known fact that your readers would find interesting about you?


Growing up, I could play a mean game of backyard football.  With the boys.

3. What word(s) would you use to describe yourself?


My daughter, sitting here with me, insists I just say that I'm a Ravenclaw.  She doubts if my readers are "awesome enough" to know what that means, but she says to tell you that if you do you get cool points.  I won't tell her that I don't entirely know.



4.  What is your most prized possession?


My book collection


part of it here in the family room


5.  If you could change one thing in the world what would it be?


For all people to have the knowledge that the left lane is for passing 

6.  What is your all time favorite book?


The House of Mirth

7.  What is the most important trait in a person?


Consideration of others 

8. Who is your favorite designer and why?


How lame of me to not be able to answer this, but I can't!  I have aspects I love of so many different designers.  Instead, I'll show some of what I like.


I'd love a foyer like this - Miles Redd

or this -- Parish-Hadley


A living room like this -- Barrie Benson

or this -- Phoebe Howard


but especially this -- Miles Redd



Dining room like this -- Katie Rosenfeld

or this -- Grant K. Gibson. Well, this is really too cool for my house, but I love it.

Kitchen like this -- Steven Sclaroff

Or this -- Windsor Smith

Family room like this -- David Lawrence

or this -- via AD

or this -- Windsor Smith

Bedroom like this -- Susan Palma

Or this -- David Kaihoi

Patio like this -- Mary McDonald

9.  What is your favorite room in your house?


The family room.  It's very casual, comfortable and where I have all my books : )

10.  The most important piece of advice you have ever been given?


My perceptive family encouraged me to pursue creative ventures.  I'm so glad they did!

11.  If you could be anyone else in the world who would you be?


I'd want to be Tina Fey with the singing and dancing ability of Sutton Foster and the writing ability of Tom Wolfe.




Now, I'm tagging the following eleven and can't wait to see their answers:


The Eleven Questions:

1.  Where in the world would you most like to live?

2.  Who is your favorite artist?

3.  What is your favorite architecture style?

4.  Where did you travel on the trip you've most enjoyed?

5.  What was your most and least favorite academic subject in school?

6.  What accomplishment outside of family, would make you most proud?

7.  Is there a design trend you love?  One you don't?

8.  Whom would you most like to meet?

9.  What is your dream job?

10.  What's your favorite book?

11.  Who is your favorite interior designer?  Why?

So far, you have the most cool points, Andee! I've now studied up on the houses. I personally think I'm a Hufflepuff, but I'm just glad I wasn't deemed a Slytherin.

Elizabeth @ The Little Black Door said...

This was fun to read, thanks for sharing. And I TOTALLY agree with you - get out of the left lane people! Especially you, 18-wheelers!

Belle on Heels said...

I looooooooove House of Mirth. Or really anything Edith Wharton. And love your daughter's hilarious response about Ravenclaw. I'm about 50/50 Gryffindor and Slytherin.
