And The Winners Are......

I was just given an award;
'The Super Comments Award'
-below is the award.
Cute Isn't it?
I was given the award by Renae Moore from Moore Designs.

Here is the deal...
I must answer 10 questions (not so easy),
then pass the award along to 10 super bloggers that leave wonderful comments.
Or just show up some times to let us know they are listening.

Here goes...

1.  Why do you blog?
Blogging for me is best when I have the courage to use my 'voice' 
and give my honest opinions and feelings about whatever my topic du jour may be.
I blog for the very semi-anonymous connection to the world.
I know that sounds strange since my name is on my blog 
and anyone can get in touch with me via the telephone or by sending an email.
This blogging is a wondrous thing.
Isn't it??? 

2.  Name your three best memories.
Besides the birth of my daughter 
and every second spent with my horse....
1}Having my work published.
2}Having my work published.
3}Having my work published.

3.  Name four of the best fiction books you have read.
Sorry...I don't read fiction.
When I did read fiction the only one I finished was Cather in The Rye.
Which I LOVED.
The rest of the fiction required by school to read... 
it was' Cliff Note's all the way.

4.  What are the five best movies ever made?
A River Runs Through It
Ordinary People
Terms Of Endearment 
Annie Hall
Breakfast At Tiffany's
Dr. Zhivago
The Fountainhead
As Good As It Gets
{I could go on}
....and not necessarily in that order

5)  Name five things I cannot live without.
Dark chocolate 

6)  If you could change your name what would it be?
Sydni or Billie
I love boys names for women.
I named my daughter Andi.
I wanted to name her Max but my dad said;
" What if she is unattractive?"
he had a point.

7.  Tell us a unique and interesting fact about yourself.
*I am most comfortable with horses and dogs.
*I spent my very early years {4-7yrs} in night clubs 
and having 3 AM breakfasts with celebrities.
Oh...And my mom had little beaded evening gowns made for me.
My parents looked like movie stars.
I thought they were.
*I am uncomfortable at parties.

8)  What do you love best about yourself?
My eyes.  SURPRISED?????
My design talent, 
and my life in the business.
You are always creating and learning something new.

9)  If you had a freaky Friday experience, who would you change places with?
Joni Mitchell

10)  What is the best thing about being a woman?
Being a mom to my beautiful daughter

I pass the torch onto these bloggers

  11. Hi there Renee,
    Oh,thank you so much for thinking of me and passing the award on.I love your answers and don't think that mine will live up to yours, although some of mine could be very similar.
    Yours was one of the first blogs that I found and we have been commenting back and forth for over a year and a half now and it has been lovely to have you as such a loyal and supportive blogging friend. That is the part of blogging that is the best ..... making connections with people. We are all from different countries,backgrounds and sometimes have differences of opinions, which is great.
    Thanks for a wonderful year and a half of blogging friendship and here's to many years of the same.
    Much love to you Renee. XXXX

About Renée Finberg

I have been in this business since the age of 22.

I love what I do and cannot imagine my life without Design.

Design Challenges are great.

And because of those challenges

I have imported fine antique pieces from Paris,

Designed and Manufactured Furniture,

Created Fantastic Window Treatments,

And solved all kinds of spatial & architectural issues

With my unique style.

If I can't find it, I create it.

My rooms would make excellent movie sets.

I am a visual, tactile and audio sensitive individual.

Creating is what I live for, not math, not spelling, not science.

Just Great Design.

Just imagine how it would be if each of us,

If only for a few hours of everyday,We could be in a space that is our very own.A place that is exactly the way we want it to be

Surrounded by all the things we wanted to see,

The atmosphere we wanted feel, smell and the sound we wanted to listen to.
