Spotlight: REAL LIFE BEHIND THE BLOGGER
Susan from Must Love Junk, and myself (Kris) Junk Chic Cottage wanted to do a regular feature on our blogs, something unique that hasn't been done before. So we came up with an idea to 'spotlight the real life behind the blogger' in a more personal way.
There is so much talent and inspiration in blogland, and we thought it would be fun to bring you a closer look at the person behind the blog.
Every week on Saturday we will spotlight a blogger and have them tell us a little bit about themselves and their blogs. You will be able to see and read about each of the bloggers on both Susan's and my blog.
Hi everyone. I would like to introduce you to a very special blogger I have come to know over the past year. She is fun, witty and talented. Her name is Suzan from Simply Vintageous by Suzan. Suzan, I affectionately call the furniture whisper (you know like Caesar the dog whisper) Suzan can take a piece of furniture and with her vision and talent with paint make it into a beautiful piece every single time. She can see the gorgeous potential in a piece and then works her magic to transform it. Suzan also has a bit on her blog called John Says Suzan Says that will have you laughing everytime. Please take a few minutes and read about this very talented blogger and then hop over and check out her blog. If you have not already met Suzan you will be in for a treat.
Hi Everyone - my name is Suzan - and I blog over at Simply Vintageous by Suzan ( which sometimes I think should be renamed to Simply Ridiculous by Suzan ) GETTING TO KNOW ME - GETTING TO KNOW ALL ABOUT ME ??? I can't think of a more boring thing to do with your morning LOL My name is Suzan Sweatman and I'm a blogaholic - if you'd like to know the history of a " handle " like Sweatman - you can read about it HERE - This is me - It's ok to publish a photo of myself as a little girl because I haven't aged at all - I'm just a little taller - honestly - I can still fit in that dress................at 54 years old - ( don't hate me for it )
We come from totally different backgrounds ( John Wood and I - not John Malkovitch and I ) He's British - I'm from Montreal - There's also a 10 year gap And the conversations that ensue from this - can sometimes get surreal They go something like this John and I in the car - ( and this is a brand new conversation for you Kris - just happened a few days ago and I actually saved it for you )
John says - I think there's something wrong with that guy
Suzan says - Who?
John says - it doesn't matter - we've passed him - but I see him a lot
John says - his treads are just ridiculous
Suzan says - How can you even see them?
John says - Are you blind as a bat? How can I not see them?
Suzan says - I'd need a magnifying glass to see them
John says- Really? You HAVE to get glasses then
Suzan says - well you must have eyes like a hawk to be able to see them
John says - they look filthy
Suzan says - what does?
John says - The guys TREADS
Suzan says - what the hell? I have never seen you go in with a toothbrush to clean yours !!!
John says - I DON'T HAVE TREADS!!!!!!!!!!!!
Suzan says -Of course you have treads - don't be ridiculous
John says - And his bicycle looks like it's falling apart
Suzan says - Ok you're blowing my mind away here - he's on a bike?
John says - YES
Suzan says - AND YOU CAN SEE THE TREADS ON HIS BIKE TIRES???????????
John says - are you nuts?
John yells - HIS TREADS - on his HEAD ( Did any of you figure it out before I did? )
Suzan says - DREADS JOHN - they're called DREADS !!!
John mumbles - Dreads, Treads, same thing
Suzan mumbles - not quite...............
I am the proud Mama to 3 children - who think I am crazy - but who love me anyway. I don't think they realize they have inherited ( by default ) some of my crazy genes - but I love them anyway. One of my daughter's recently married - she had a " themed " wedding - which had me a nervous wreck for the full 6 months prior..................but people are still calling us a month after the event to tell us they've never had more fun at a wedding in their lives - so I guess she did good - my little girl................you can read about some of her totally off the radar wedding plans HERE and HERE and if you don't go to the links and read them you'll have no idea why my Son changed from his suit into this outfit for the reception - DEAR GOD - but I did warn you we were all a little crazy.................don't judge ( it's not nice to judge - didn't your Mother teach you that??? ) and no I am not Billy Idol's Mom - no matter how much my Daughter wanted her Brother to " channel " him - although I'd say he " aced " it.....................this is the first time I'm posting this photo btw. This is him normally - I HAVE to show you this before you see the next one!
|LINDSAY AND ASHLEY|
AND that would be me - in a nutshell.................... Thank you so much Kris and Susan - for inviting me over today - I had a blast getting to know myself actually!!! Hope you don't lose any followers LOL Huge hugs from Montreal to both of you and all your readers too!
