Next Stop, The Oscars

Well goodness me, I've been given not one but TWO more blog awards! But I'm afraid I'm not very good at acceptance speeches.

First, thanks to Sarah of The Antique Pearl, who passed the Sunshine Award on to me.

Thanks also to Miss Kitty Boo for the Beautiful Blogger Award - my second nomination for this one! So, seven random facts about me that you don't already know...
  1. I share a birthday with Walt Disney and the King of Thailand
  2. I am an expert at toasting marshmallows.
  3. I live in a shared house with three guys, including my boyfriend, Matin.
  4. My mother's side of the family has a colonial background, and my great-great-great-grandfather translated the bible into Tamil, the language of Tamil Nadu in south India.
  5. I grew up in South Wales (but I don't have a Welsh accent).
  6. "Earth Girls Are Easy" is one of my favourite movies-that-you-probably-never-heard-of.
  7. When I was about five I used to say my favourite colour was blue, even though I secretly liked pink, because I wanted to be different.

The rules for both these state that I must tag other blogs, but since I've already PIF'd the awards I've previously received to all my favourite bloggers, I'm going to twist the rules slightly and just share a few of my favourite websites.

Vintage Printable - lots and lots of hi-res vintage and antique ephemera and illustration. Easy to get lost in!

Fashion Era - costume history reference site, with loads of content - I look at it often and I've barely skimmed the surface.

Queens of Vintage - a daily magazine covering all things vintage.

And some blogs that should already be in your google reader: Vixen Vintage, Dizzy Dame, Gertie's Blog for Better Sewing, Q's Daydream, Freelancer's Fashionblog, Esme and the Lane Way, 1950s Atomic Ranch House, Tea with the Vintage Baroness
