Blair from Wild & Precious

This week's favorite (found in the sidebar) is Wild & Precious.  Blair's is so great and I am so excited to share her with you all!  You just must check out her blog.  It is sweet and down to earth, yet so lovely and sophisticated.

When did you start blogging?

I had a very short lived blog in 2005 and then started this one in 2007, however for the first three years it was just for friends and family -- and had maybe 3 followers.  In March of 2010 I really started to
expand my readership and really started having fun with my blog.

Why did you start your blog?

When I started in 2007, really -- hardly anyone I knew blogged.  I had to email my parents every time I posted with the link and tell them to read it.  I had two friends who also blogged and were perhaps my only readers.  I like exploring new things on the computer and the blog was just a way of trying something new.  It was also at that point, more of a scrapbook of my life.

What is your favorite aspect of the blog world?

The community it brings!  I really feel like I have made so many great friends.  I also just learn so much from following other people's lives - whether it is about relationships, fashion, crafting... I seriously learn so much.

Where do you find all of your fashion inspiration?

Hmm.. fashion inspiration? I think if people met me, they might be disappointed by my sense of fashion.  I do what I can with what I have -- I'm pretty frugal when it comes to shopping and trends, so what I post I very rarely own.  I like to look at Anthropologie and J.Crew and then see what I have in my (very small but over flowing) closet that might be able to make similar to what I saw but with my own twist.  I'm into comfort, but also like for people to say, "hmm, I wouldn't necessarily wear that, but you pull it off."

Why did you choose the mason jar for your button (which is so cute, by the way)?

I was looking for something simple and kind of obscure that I thought represented both aspects of the name of my blog - both Wild and Precious. I love mason jars - especially old ones.  Use as a vase with wild flowers, sip a summer drink out of them, catch lightning bugs... I just had a lot of memories, both precious and wild, attached to mason jars and so decided it would be perfect for my button (and occasionally in my header image - which I like to switch up a lot).

What is one weird thing most people don't know about you?

I'm probably just pretty weird in general - but to me, all my oddities seem pretty normal. Hmm.. I'm not a big reader, but I do like to read fantasy stuff a lot -- like Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, The Eldest Series (its about dragons)!  I guess thats pretty weird/funny.

Do you think that you are the same on your blog as in real life?

I think i'm pretty transparent.  But like I said, I'm probably not as fashionable or design savy as my blog may suggest.  Although I truly do admire and maybe even aspire to some of the design images or apparel I post, my current taste (and budget) is much more simple.

Lastly, if you were getting a Grammy or an Oscar (because being my weekly favorite doesn't quite measure up to that), who would you thank?

I would like to thank God (you have to thank him first in the Oscars, plus He is awesome), Sarah Ann for being so sweet to highlight me, my husband for putting up with all the time I spend on the computer instead of hanging out with him and for all the html help he gives me.  I'd like to thank all my great sponsors, bloggy friends, all the designers who give great creations away on my blog, and all my followers!

Thank you, Blair!
