Last week we where honored with The Gorgeous Blogger award from Smulan, on her beautiful blog Under Mammas Vingar. This blog is a favorite of ours, so you can imagine how happy we felt.
She had this to say about us (it's in Swedish):
"det har ännu inte kommit en dag som jag inte förundras över er mästerlighet. Annika, dina texter har inte bara en gång utan flera gånger inspirerat min vardag. " It´s like having an endless palett of inspiration"...det är kanske en utav de mest fina meningar jag läst under mina jordsnurr hittills.Om ni skulle göra en bok, så skulle jag säkerligen köpa den. Kreativt, fantastifullt och vackert...Ni har nånting alldeles eget och unikt, och jag gillar eran sång. Och hur jag önskade att få ha en sån blombukett på bordet och en bok med era bilder och text som du har skrivit Annika. Ni gör ett fantastiskt jobb! "
That we felt speechless after these beautiful words, well it would be a slight understatement. We do what we love and that in itself is a great privilege, but when someone comes along and recognizes this and feel touched by it, you can't really ask for more. So, Smulan....thank you so much!
We'll pass this on to five gorgeous bloggers and answer the five questions that follows this award:
1. When did you start blogging?
We started our blog in November 2010. So she is still a baby :)
2. What's your blog about?
Well, we love to be creative and we aim to create inspiration for the home here. It can be an image of something we think is beautiful, a project, or a 'how to' on a flower decoration.
3. What makes your blog special?
One of our goals is to produce as much content ourself as possible. Don't know if that is particularly special, but it's what makes our blog ours.
4. What got you into blogging?
It's a wonderful thing to be able to inspire other people and we thought this was a fun and interesting way to do it.
5. What would you like to change in your blog?
We actually have quite a few changes planned during the next couple of months. We do believe that a blog should be very friendly and we are going to work on that. Then we have a small shop we need to integrate with the blog and we want an inspiration section as well. When we are done with all of that, we have probably come up with a few more things that can be done, as this is the way things work around here. A project is seldom finished before another one starts:)
We now pass this award on and present to you some of our favorite blogs:
