I was really flattered when I received an e-mail from Zoe, at Playing by the Book Blog, informing me that she had selected my blog for The Versatile Blogger Award. THANK YOU ZOE!
The Rules of the Award are:
- Thank the person who gave you the award.
- Tell us seven things about yourself.
- Award fifteen recently discovered bloggers.
- Contact the blogs to let them know they received the award.
Here are seven things about me:
- I'm sure you would never guess this one: my house is crowded with tea boxes, mugs, cups and tea pots! Aha! Though I do have quite a number of pebbles of all sorts: brown ones, reddish ones, and pink, green, grey, black, with patterns... but I have as well eggs of any kind, pieces of bark, funny little puppets I have found during my traveling, lots of greens, and two cats: Pukka and Minnie;
- I love photography and I have established very strict rules for my own photographs: no digital, no reflex, only mechanical cameras and only BW pictures! Snobbish? Maybe but it makes me feel great to be able to choose all details while I take my pictures;
- I used to play the flute... good thing I've stopped, but I still cannot live without music;
- when I was a kid I was convinced I would die of consumption like Mimì, in Puccini's opera! Quite dramatic, yes! Though my favourite opera character is Tosca, still Puccini's.
- I'm specialized in History of Theatre, together with English and French literature;
- when I have time I making my own little books out of pictures and/or materials I collect when I walk around, be it in the countryside or at the sea;
- after I started blogging, and getting some recognition here and there, my dad decided he wanted to have a T-shirt bearing the following sentence: "I'm the father of the genius!" with my picture at the bottom of it... Just in case I thought of taking myself too seriously!
And now, my personal selection of blogs, I have chosen them picking amid children's books authors, art and design experts and children's book experts. They are sorted in alphabetical order.

I hope you'll enjoy them as much as I do!
