Gifts and trophies!

The last days I've been savouring the treats my parents brought me from Finland (and Sweden, actually - they're so scandinavian). They really pampered me this time, I got like 8 blocks of Fazer's purple chocolate (with raisins and nuts) and OOPS I totally forgot that Rene hates raisins, so more for me! :)))) hahah. Visitors like that are always welcome. ;) I'll post some pics of what we did later.

I was extremely honoured to get my first blog-challenge from Maria! Thanks, that was cute! (I in fact hate chain-letters, but I'm not expecting much of it, since nobody really knows my existence yet! So I will pass it forward, although it's somewhat tacky. I'm still extremely honoured! :))

Looks more like a knitting-blog logo than a trophy. *giggling*. But I should not look in the gift-horses mouth, right :)

The rules are:
1. Thank the person who gave you the award (OMG really??? That's genuine. You need to ask this in the rules? These are the kind of things that suck in chain letters, so for the record, the ones I pass this on to, you don't need to thank me just because I said so!).
2. Copy the logo and paste to your blog. (- Check.)
3. Link to the person who gave you the award. (- Check.)
4. Name seven things about yourself that no one would really know. (- Coming up.)
5. Nominate seven "Kreativ" Bloggers. (- Let's see... I'll nominate My milk toof, burp, Fashion Chalet, 30 Doradus, More to love, Laura de Lille, and Dancing through life. The first 4 are in English, the others in Finnish. But I recommend to check them all out for cute pics.)
6. Post links to the seven blogs. (- Done.)
7. Leave a comment on each blog so they know you nominated them. (- Will do.)

Really, who has time for this? Well, I'm still so smitten, that I got an acknowledgement, and it makes me feel like part of a community in a way. :) So, forgive me this nonsense. (Check out also an older post of mine where I confess my hatred to chainletters.)

Seven things you may not know about me yet:
1. I can't live without real butter.
2. I could trade working for being a house wife (even with no kids) and just cook delicious things all day. I'm not sure I'll ever have kids though, 'cos I also like my gipsy-lifestyle. So I'd gladly just feed the meals to my sisters kids.
3. I wish there was a way to combine living in the best city in the world (guess which?) and the best country (guess again) at the same time. It pains me, that all my friends live in different countries, although it's so cool to have friends everywhere you go.
4. I don't mind being poor.
5. I wish I had the chance to travel more though.
6. I sometimes wish I knew the answers.
