The One Lovely Blog Award

Michaela of Love Letters to Old Hollywood was so sweet to nominate me for the One Lovely Blog Award, which I had never received before. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

The rules for this award are as follows:

  1. Write a blog post accepting your nomination.
  2. Show the blogger who nominated you how much you love them by thanking them in the post and linking to their blog.
  3. Tell us seven things about yourself.
  4. Nominate other blogs that you love.
  5. Let the bloggers you’ve nominated know they’ve received an award.
  6. Post the rules again to let those bloggers know how it works.

Here are seven things about myself:

  1. Besides visual arts and writing, I also have a strong background in music (especially in jazz), which solidified during my high school years. Growing up, I’ve played piano, violin, guitar, bass, and various percussion instruments. Piano is my go-to, but I also love playing double bass.
  2. My Myers-Briggs Type Indicator is INFJ, which is considered to be the rarest personality type. Only about 1% of the world’s population is an INFJ type.
  3. I always give myself too many creative projects to do (for some reason, all at once) whenever I get that rare burst of inspiration, so I end up getting inevitably overwhelmed and unproductive. However, I am working towards compiling a book of my own short stories, (some kind of) a novel, and a big Keaton-related project.
  4. I’m fluent in American Sign Language (I started learning it before I could speak), intermediate in French, and slowly working on Polish.
  5. I am a huge art history enthusiast, and my favorite painter is Edward Hopper.
  6. Before I decided to dedicate my life on becoming a walking Buster Keaton encyclopedia, I was a walking Beatles encyclopedia for the entirety of my teenage years.
  7. I’ve been regularly (this is a loose term nowadays) writing letters to pen pals for about seven years.

I would now like to nominate:

Little Bits of Classics


It’s All Too Much

Cinematic Scribblings

Christina Wehner

The Flapper Dame

Nominees, I extend my congratulations to you all, and look forward to getting to know you! Once again, Michaela, many thanks for the nomination! ❤

  1. Nicole, your blog is most deserving of this award. I very much enjoy reading your articles.
    My blog, on the other hand, is not deserving of such an award 🙂 … I rarely post anything. But I do appreciate being included. You’re the coolest 👍


  2. Thanks so much for including me! You definitely deserve this award, and I enjoyed learning more about you. Writing pen pal letters sounds like a lot of fun. It’s also impressive that you’re learning Polish; it seems like it would be a difficult language to pick up, at least from what little I’ve seen of it.


    • It’s my pleasure, and you are equally as deserving!

      Oh, I love it! I don’t think I could ever grow tired of seeing a friendly handwritten letter waiting inside the mailbox. Thank you so much! It’s difficult to remember the spellings (and I lack the pronunciation skills), but since I’ve been around the language while growing up and visiting family, I’m somehow familiar with it enough to grasp a basic understanding of it?

  3. You’re entirely welcome! It’s been wonderful discovering your blog!

    Good luck with the Polish! I know what you mean about the creative projects, although for me, it’s blogathons. I’ll sign up for a bunch and then immediately look at my upcoming posts and think “Oh no, what did I do?!” And then I sign up for another one.
