Flattery will get you everywhere…

21 Jul

I am so honored to have Northof Seven nominate Mid-Century Modern Love for the ‘One Lovely Blog Award’. It is an award bestowed by fellow bloggers, and when received you are to list 7 random facts about you and then name 7 bloggers you want to pass the award onto. I began this blog to be my place of sanity as we went through the process of bringing our home to life with our family. I never imagined that I’d meet so many lovely people in the blogosphere as find so much inspiration in my new friends.

So pass it forward to other blogger’s you find to be the bee’s knees.

Award rules:

Thank the person/people who nominated you and link back to them in your post.
Share seven possibly unknown things about yourself.
Nominate up to fifteen or so bloggers you admire.
Contact the chosen bloggers to let them know and link back to them.

Seven Things About Myself

1) My birthday is Halloween.

2) I am a certified yoga instructor.

3) My full time job is global marketing manager at Xbox.  Yes, that’s right.  I work in video gaming.  Weird, huh?

4) I also worked in advertising at Food and Wine, Travel + Leisure, and MAXIM.

5) My first job was making waffle cones at a yogurt shoppe.

6) If I could live anywhere, it would be London.

7) I hate cold white and creamy foods…milk, sour cream, cottage cheese, vanilla yogurt.  (I am gagging inside just thinking of these things.)

Nominate up to fifteen or so bloggers you admire.

    I love Mid2Mod! When we found our credenza I emailed Dana to ask if she could help me find any information on it. She was one of the only dealers that took the time to respond.

    Congratulations, Brandy! And I had never checked out Maeve’s blog before, so thanks for posting the link. I love the film noir photos of Hailey. She looks very mysterious and alluring!
