Liebster Award! Discover More Blogs!

CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP CLAP.... That's all the dolls giving applause to... ahem... me... and also to thank Dana of  A Philly Collector of Playscale Dolls and Action Figures! Thank you for the tag, it is greatly appreciated.  It has been YEARS now and you always have a nice a word for me, even though I post sporadically. let's peak in to the awards ceremony.  

Annik just announced the tag, Chip is a most handsome stage guide, and Coe thanks everyone who got us here tonight, his fellow dolls, their deities (Me and the Real Doll Nerd), everyone who has inspired us along the way!  And last but not least Dana.

Now down to business,  11 random facts about me:
1.  My folks immigrated from the Philippines to Baltimore, Maryland in the 50s.
2.  Cooking comes easy to me.
3. I don't know how to NOT worry, lol.
4. I remember things from 30 years ago that still make me cringe.
6. I would trade a jillion perfect fall days for a few hot as hell days by the pool.
5. I can't believe I am old enough to have 30 year old memories ( and then some).
7. Twenty seven was my favorite "single life" age.
8. I'm a nerd about family history.
9. I'm a jack of all trades, master of, maybe one or two.
10. Mr. Roger's Neighborhood was and is my favorite TV show.
11. I wish I liked exercise.

Now the 11 questions Dana my tagger posed to me:

1. How did you become a blogger?  

When I started in the miniature hobby, I didn't know what it was to have a leisure activity.  I made blogging my goal, so I wouldn't be "wasting" time doing nothing.  I've since learned to enjoy miniatures "just because."

2. What was your favorite subject in school and why?

Art, because, even though there were basic guidelines, there was no wrong answer.  I think I gave many wrong answers in other classes.

3. You can be any doll you want, brought to life. Which doll are you and why?

Any doll that got to live in a dollhouse.  Have you ever read Doll's House by Rumer Godden?  I'd like to be Tottie I think.

4. What is the coolest story ever connected to your blog?

Once years ago, my blog was picked up by the website Apartment Therapy, I got like thousands of hits that day.

6. What do you do when you are not blogging?

Working, nesting, watching endless TV, parenting my dogs.

7. What are your Grail dolls/action figures?

There's a book called Midnight in the Dollhouse, I think when I have the room, I would recreate the dollhouse and get all the dolls!

8. What three countries or cities would you like to visit?

Paris, London, Tokyo 

9. Is there a project you dream of accomplishing?

A complete and permanent doll house for  1:6, 1:4 and 1:3 and one inch scale.

10. What are your favorite foods?

Filipino comfort foods:  Sinigang, Appritada, Tinola

11. Any tips you would give future bloggers?

Do as many posts as you can and save them up. Only release them once in awhile.  It's hard keeping up with a blog.  I think people can get to like your way of doing things, and you want to give them more, but life just keeps happening all around you and getting in the way :)

Now I'm supposed to nominate a five fellow bloggers with less than 200 followers.  I love every blog I follow and it's hard to get down to five.  So.... if you would like a tag (nomination) comment below, and I'll be happy to do so!
