An award! And 7 random things about me :)

The lovely NY based interior designer Victoria from the fabulous blog Art House Design has given me the Kreativ Blogger award! Thank you so much, I definitely feel honored! She mentioned the K in creative being so familiar because of her German mother tongue. Well, creative is spelled kreativ in Norwegian as well!

As part of the award I get to share seven things about myself :)

1. I can drive a tractor and plow a field. I learned it when I lived in Murtaugh, Idaho at the tender age of 18. I was a foreign exchange student in the smallest town ever (pop: 432) and had a blast!

2. For some reason, people are always totally surprised when they find out that my favorite kind of music is hip hop / rap. I love Jay Z, vintage Pharcyde tracks (like drop, running, passin me by), Wu Tang Clan... The list is long!

3. This is my style.. I'm one of those girls that are always slightly overdressed. LOVE high heels and fun, quirky color combos.

4. I have the most beautiful fiance and a daughter that's 1,5 years old. In 3-5 weeks we're welcoming a new little girl to the family.

5. My biggest passion (except for my family) is interior design. I devour books, blogs and magazines on the subject. And there's always projects going on at home :)

6. I LOVE exciting color combinations....

But always end up with something like this: (which is beautiful, but not what I'm aiming for)

I'm working on it though... More exciting color combos to come in the future!

7. My favorite accessory...? A fabulous lamp!

Maria Killam said...

Love this post, I was fascinated by every photo and what you said about it!

VictoriaArt said...

Dagny, it was such lovely surprise to read all about you and your loves in life!
You picked such beautiful pictures to show it too.
Hope you are felling well and that those last waiting weeks will pass with ease and soon you will welcome a new member to you family!
I am thinking of you!


PS: I can so see you on that pink tractor with your heels and all dressed up, quite the fashion shot. Karl Lagerfeld did something like that only a few month ago. :)))

Hello! Hoihoi, rosa traktor! Jeg har forsøkt å finne ut hvor mye det koster å sende plakater til USA, men det var ikke lett gitt. Det er alt dette med toll og så videre. Jeg har vel egentlig funnet ut at det får holde med å selge til skandinavia foreløbig. Det er ikke akkurat big business jeg holder på med, mer hobby foreløbig. Men kanskje etterhvert hvis jeg får opp volum så har jeg lyst til å begynne å selge til resten av verden også.

I love learning more about the bloggers I read! I can totally relate to #3! I love dressing up and am always slightly more dressy than others wherever I go!

Congrats on the beautiful family you have and the new addition on the way!! So exciting!

Dagny @ Beautiful Living said...

Style Redux - Thank you!! I'm really looking forward to getting rid of the bump, so I can start dressing normally again!!

Chichi - Lol, you're not the only one! I'm completely facinated by lamps, I think they're such an important part of a decor.

Maria - Thank you so much :)

Victoria - I'm actually getting quite impatient these days... Energy levels are low, hopefully that'll change... SOON!! Haha, you know Lagerfelt and I - great minds think alike!! ;) Isnæt that tractor fabulous though? Lol :)

Storeflittig - Hehehehe.... Utrolig morsomt bilde!! Og med den kjempemagen!

Snøstorm - Synes du hadde passet perfekt på etsy jeg da...!! Tror absolutt du har noe som flere ville vært interessert i!

Crystal - Lol, LOVE dressing up too! I always feel great in a fabulous dress and some good heels!! It's so obvious I'm in baby mode these days, look at the blog! More "grown up" posts in the weeks to come... Promise!! :) :)
