Seven things...or maybe eight

Amanda from Homely One tagged me to post seven things about myself... here goes...
  1. I love flowers. Any sort of flowers really but roses would have to be my favourite, especially old style David Austin or Guillot.
  2. I eat a lot of cheese. Lyndon teases me about being Wallace from Wallace and Gromit as I love cheese so much. Tasmanian Heidi Farm Cheese would be one of my favourites. Cheese Gromit!
  3. I collect glass paperweights. I have around 60 or so (most still packed away at the moment) and they come from all over the world. I have examples from France, America, Scotland, New Zealand and Australia. My c1850 French ones by a factory called Clichy are my favourite.
  4. I love animals. I was lucky enough to grow up with a lot of pets and a father who breeds Welsh Mountain Ponies - every little girl's dream. I am a keen supporter of the rights for animals and my favourite charities are those for animals such as RSPCA and Animals Asia.
  5. I am a hoarder. I find it very difficult throwing anything out and use my artistsic bent as an excuse to keep everything in case I can make it into a piece of art! I figure if it wasn't for hoarders in the past we wouldn't have access to interesting and lovely vintage and antique bits and pieces. So really I am a keeper of history!
  6. I am a typical Libran. I love beautiful things and am so indecisive! I can see both sides of any given situation and dislike arguments. Though I'm not sure I'm always balanced :)
  7. I love books. Looovvvee books (and magazines for that matter). I always have a pile next to the bed and read anything. Love Harry Potter, Twilight and so on but also heavier things like Perfume - what a great book that was. One of my favourites is The Time Travellers Wife.
    and because I have a thing about uneven numbers...
    8.   I like patterns in things. I like to see patterns in cars on the road eg just red and white cars, or a row of parked cars all the same colour. Strange I know....

Well, I'm going out to work in the garden today. Hope yours is a good one :)


  1. Hi Sarah - thanks so much for joining in!! I love Wallace & Gromit, really like cheese too - found it very hard whilst pregnant staying clear of certain yummy ones!! You'll have to share some of your paperweight collection with us when you unpack them one day. You have me intrigued - would love to see some. So glad you are a fellow Harry Potter fan!! Was great to learn a little bit more about you from your little list of 8 :)

  2. Thanks Amanda for asking me to take part. Yes, I will post some of my paperweights in the near future. Hmmm, I can't imagine going without soft cheese - it would be torture!!

  3. Well we all know you love flowers and you display them so well too, but i wouldn't have guessed about the cheese. One day you'll have to cut back you know, i had to and i found it sooo dificult. My favourite was the Tas native pepper cheese. Haven't had any for a year now and i'd forgotten about it until just now!! byee, Kaite

  4. I'm a Libra as well and I can't stand arguments. Thanks for sharing 8 things about you!

  5. Hi Sarah,

    Thank you for visiting my blog and for sharing some random things about yourself..I too love books..and only need to take a look at the two bookshelves I have stacked at the moment..think a third one is needed very x

  6. Hi Sarah, How great to learn more about you via your list. I so share your love of flowers as you know. How beautiful is your lovely big dahlia! I shall have to look out for her next planting season. xx


I love hearing from you - your lovely comments make my day!
