I'm "It"! I've Been Tagged

Last week I was "tagged" by Terri at Originals by Terri, sorry it's taken me this long to get around to it. The rules of the game are:

1) Link to your tagger and list these rules on your blog
2) Share 7 facts about yourself, some random, some weird
3) Tag 7 more people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs
4) Let them know they've been tagged by leaving a comment on their blogs


7 things about me:

1) I was born into an artistic family. My dad built harpsichords for a living, as well as played them.

My mother used to be an organist, and is a fabulous painter.

My brother is an artist and graphic designer (I can't believe I don't have any of his work to show you!).

I have an art degree in printmaking. I used to play harpsichord and classical guitar... not so much, anymore.

"Moonlight", etching

"Untitled", Hand-colored Dry Point Etching

2) I watch way too much tv. (You mean, there's an "off" button on this thing?!?)

3) I'm fanatic about watching Dancing With the Stars. I like to pretend it's me out there on the dance floor. While in real life, if I tried to dance, I'd look like the dancing hippos in Disney's "Fantasia" - if they were on crack!

4) I'm a collector: demitasse cups, beads, Victorian sewing toys, stamps, whatever. It drives Marble Man insane.

However, I do regularly clear things out so there's not so much STUFF around... or I try to anyway.

5) I love to cook, which is in direct conflict with my weight-loss struggle.

6) I have a crazy fascination for shoes. Stilettos, boots, funky, beautiful - I can't seem to get enough.

7) I love dirty jokes. Clever, funny ones, not gross. And bodily noises make me laugh like a maniacal hyena.

Here are the people I'm tagging:

3rd Eye Muse
Arterial Excursions

A Whimsical Bohemian
Boxing Day
No Side Up
Rhinestone Armadillo

As opposed to common belief, women CAN have enough shoes... all you have to do is ask your husband if you have enough, and do the opposite to what he'll risk telling you.

BTW, if you delete this comment, bad luck will follow you around like a cloud over Pig Pen.

You lucky person to have been in a creative family! I have yet to watch Dancing with the stars but everyone raves about that show. I like the fact that you collect beautiful teacups and yet laugh at dirty jokes..a well rounded person ,I'd say:)

Kate: It's really fun to see your gifted family's talents highlited all in one place. Some astounding accomplishments through the years! This inborn sense of design explains your shoe fetish! Thanks for tagging gave me the jumpstart I needed.

Laura said...

Okay! I finally got my tagged-you're-it post up!

Love those shoes. The red ones are particularly special.

I love reading the tidbits about YOU. What a cool family you come from. Oh how I would have loved to have majored in printmaking. Your post is also fun in the way you shared the details with the photos.

michelle of bleeding espresso said...

What a lovely place you have here! Loved getting to know you a bit better through these things. And I just love your cup collection!

3rdEyeMuse said...

thanks, Kate ... not so depressed now (though I have completely covered all the sponging in solid red ... ah well ... the piece is still in progress).

Fete et Fleur said...

I'm laughing! Firstly, your banner looks lovely! Secondly, I'm a Dancing with The Stars nut too. I completely understand the weight loss conflict. I love to bake!

I got caught up in the 7 things and forgot to leave a comment about your very talented family. WOW! The photos of their work were amazing!!
