Shabby Blog's Top 10 on Tuesday Link Party

Megan at Shabby Blogs has begun a Top 10 Tuesday Link Party over at her wonderful blog. This Tuesday is 10 Random Things About Yourself. Here is my list:

1. I love period movies like Anna Karenina, Room with a View, Marie Antoinette, Pride and Prejudice and I can hardly wait to see "The Great Gatsby".

2. I only like to write with a fountain pen.

3. My favourite flower is a  pale pink rose.

4. I am a "girlie girl"; I love to wear long skirts and dresses.

5. My favourite place to be is the beach.

6. I love to watch the birds in my backyard.

7. My cats are some of my best friends.

8. I have traveled to Russia; I have been to St. Petersburg and Moscow.

9. My grandmother was my mentor.

10. I love pastel colours.

So that is my list and if you want to join just go to Shabby Blogs.


  1. I, too, love the beach and wearing long flowing dresses. However, now I live in the middle of the country, far from any salt water beach and know a long dress would wind up tripping me or catching in any chairs I would sit in.

  2. Love your list, Kim :-) Especially #5. I too live far from any sandy beaches, and I miss it so much. I was raised in San Diego, and every time I visit family, I always make time to get my beach 'fix'.

    1. I love lists as well. I could make lists all day long. I grew up in Toronto and I have never swam in Lake Ontario. My parents grew up minutes from Lake Huron and that is where I live now. I cannot see myself ever living anywhere else. Being at the beach is wonderful. I guess you could call me a water baby. When I lived in Toronto we had a pool at my parents home. We called it Patio Lake.

  3. I love your list too! We have a lot in common! We should be friends so that I have someone to talk to about all of our favorite movies! My husband doesn't get my love for period films, but I could watch nothing but those for the rest of my life. :) Great job!

    1. Hi Megan,
      I have always loved these kinds of movies. I have watched them since I was a teenager. I get immersed when I watch a film. It is such a nice departure from every day life. These lists can really bring people together. Thanks.
