Post-a-Day #17 - ten honest things

Thanks to Rachel for for the Honest Scrap award! :D I was awarded by her after I saw that Jasmine awarded this to whoever wanted to participate .... and I did.... so ..... :D I had started writing it already... but I'm somewhat relieved, as Rachel made it 'official!' :D

Here are the rules for the "Honest Scrap" Award:
  1. Say thanks and give a link to the presenter of the award ~ (Thank you, Jasmine and Rachel!)
  2. Share "ten honest things" about yourself.
  3. Present this award to 7 others whose blogs I find brilliant in content and/or design, or those who have encouraged me.

  4. Tell those 7 people that they've been awarded the "Honest Scrap" and inform them of these guidelines in receiving

OK- for my ten honest things I'm also going to post 'Fashion-honest' things. (It just looked like so much fun! Otherwise I wouldn't be such a copycat). :)

  1. Sometimes I have been caught being "too dressy". :) I love jewelry and cute shoes, and occasionally I wear too much of both at places like *cough* home-church...

  2. My hair is so long that I can sit on it easily (or without meaning to - ouch!) and most of the time I just contain it in a boring ponytail to get it out of my way. (any tips on very long hair-styles?)

  3. My fashion sense has a mind of its own sometimes... (lol)

  4. I ask my brothers for their opinions often, which apparently drives them nuts, I have no idea why... Somehow they don't find choosing between a pink purse or a brown purse as fun as I do! :D

  5. Patterned prints, Polka-dots, and Paisley - Oh My! :D I love them all.

  6. I have WAY too many shoes. Seriously.

  7. I also have way too much jewelry - It's a side effect of being a jewelry designer... you make some for every outfit! :)
  8. If something is 'in' at the moment but doesn't look right on me - or it grates against my convictions of modesty - I won't wear it.
  9. I've gotten my mom to wear dangly earrings... woohoo! She looks great in them too. :) Love you Mommy!
  10. I wear pants or capris more than I wear skirts. :( Mostly because my skirts are all dressy - if anyone has reccomendations on someplace to get 'everyday' skirts, please drop me a note!
I award whomever would like to participate! I agree with Jasmine that 7 is just too few. :D


  1. Hi there, Julia! I think I might do this, it looks fun! Her is a link for some skirts:

  2. Julia, this was such a fun post to read.=)

  3. I have a couple places for you to visit Julia!

    Hope you like em'!

  4. I am just commenting on your question about skirts. Personally I love skirts. And I find that a lot of my skirt fall apart easily. (Such a bumper. And my favorite ones wear out the fastest.Grr...) Especially ones with gathers and lots of seams. My grandmother made me three skirts from a pattern from the company simplicity. It is a very "simple" :) pattern and my most durable skirts. Making them is my best advice. Although I'm sure there are some out there online or something. :) They just don't make skirts like they used to. (Sigh)

    By the way, great Idea having a post every day. It's been fun to read something new of yours every day!


    And If any one is interested I have a give away on my blog. :)
