Honest Scrap

Jeannine @ Small and Chic in Cville just awarded me my second bloggy award. {The first was the J.U.G.S award.} I’m SUPER excited & honored Jeannine considers me an Honest Scrap.

It even has a hammer! That’s my kinda award. Thanks ma’am!!

So here’s the deal.

  1. Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award. {check!}
  2. Share “10 Honest Things” about myself.
  3. Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.
  4. Tell those 7 people they’ve been awarded HONEST SCRAP and inform them of these guidelines in receiving.


My 10 Honest Things

  1. I ❤ power tools. Vroom vroom.
  2. I want our home to look amazing but not designed. A functional place that feels like home is more important than perfectly styled shelves.
  3. I believe in transparency. Brick City Love puts it all out there; half done projects, mistakes, successes, the whole lot. I love the process, not just final product.
  4. Our house is going to take YEARS to finish. But that’s ok. 🙂
  5. My favorite color is orange.
  6. I love diners. I usually order grilled cheese {as long as it’s not breakfast time}.
  7. Our dog, Bruce, sleeps in bed with us. Sometimes under the covers.
  8. I love naps.
  9. I’m looking forward to finally having something – a project, a room, whatev – be a real live 1000% done AFTER. Oh that’d be the sweet sweet smell of victory. I want an AFTER.
  10. We have the best family & friends in the entire world. Corny? Yes. True? Also, yes. Hence the Wall of Awesome {in left nav bar} {which desperately needs a little updating}.

And the “Honest Scrap” is thusly awarded to the following fellow bloggers.

  1. Russet Street Reno
  2. NewlyWoodwards
  3. BackGarage
  4. The Fourth Door
  5. DC Rowhouse
  6. Baltimore Rowhouse
  7. Northern Happenings {Not home reno but he’s my brother & living a super cool life in Alaska. Tell him to blog more.}

    Thanks, Carrie! =) The first room we finished in our house was the most exciting time of our renovation. I totally understand that.

    I guess once a Jersey girl… I love diners so much! I collect vintage dinerware. When I am lucky enough to be in NJ eating at a diner, I look for Taylor ham on the menu. Heaven would be having it on a hard roll……
