my quirks

Ok, so I have way more than just six...

1. I collect things. Like mis-tint paints. Every time we walk into a hardware store I am drawn to them and ultimately leave with at least one (same with the paint chips).

2. I could look at Russian men all day long. Well, most of them. The other day I found a picture of Putin in a magazine and asked my sister "Isn't he ridiculously good-looking?" And of course she told me heck no and I was weird. I think it's the cheekbones.

3. I have to have LIGHT, especially if I'm working on something- hence the 5 lamps on my desk. If I had my way, I would have glass walls in my house and halogen lights in every room for when the sun went down.

4. Once I start something, I can't stop. Like books or quilts or whatever project I happen to be working on- I get it done in as short a time as possible, ignoring everything else happening or need to happen.

5. I am constantly rearranging the furniture in my house. I am never content to just leave it be. And it usually happens between the hours of 7 and 11pm- those are my inspiration hours.

6. I HAVE to sleep with a blanket or something on me. I just can't sleep laying somewhere, I have to have something over me, I don't know why.

And I tag Molly, Emile, Kristie, Jessica, Rachel, and Angelica (you're supposed to list your six quirks and tag 6 people too)


  1. That is so funny! I am totally with you on all except the Russian Men thing! hahaha! My husband hates the furniture rearranging the most! He will come home from work and go to sit down and ends up on the floor!

  2. 5 lamps on the desk huh... Ü you might need some of those huge lights the construction teams use at night.

  3. I have never purchased mis-tinted paint, but I love that idea. I might have to adopt your quirk....Not so much the Russian Men thing.

  4. Am I the jessica you tagged? LOL I'll get on it..check my xanga in the next couple of days! Hope all is well with you guys!

  5. I love to work under lots of light too. I feel you on that one.
