DIY and Awards

I can hardly believe it's November already! However, I must say the month has started in a positive note as I managed to accomplish a small DIY project. As a renter, I have to struggle with decorating without causing major damage to walls, so hanging pictures with the least amount of whole-making was on my to-do list. Over the weekend I bought some cable-string, small hooks, paper clips and picked some of my favorite pictures....

Materials.... product

I also wanted to thank Lisa Marie (Amarillo and Crema) and Starlet (Can You Come Home) for giving me an award.

The award calls for the recipient to:
  1. Thank the presenter(s) with a linking post 
  2. Dish 7 things (or more) about yourself 
  3. Share the award with bloggers
So here are seven things you may not know about me:

1. My favorite flowers are poppies...
2. .... and my favorite herb is basil.
3. I love  am obsessed with soccer (Spanish national team and F.C Barcelona. woot!)
4. I was born in Madrid.
5. I am a coffee lover addict.
6. I really, really want a blood hound, they are seriously the cutest dogs!
7. Nina Simone may just be my favorite female artist of all time.

And now passing on the award to the following 7 blogs, for always being inspirational and lovely to read:

Thanks again for the awards Lisa and Starlet!
