The Versatile Blogger Award!

Gallant and Jones


  1. our hands are horrible and calloused from making deck chairs :(
  2. we love a bottle of wine/pint of lager and a good old chinwag
  3. we are both freakishly strong
  4. we are big fans of politeness (a Brit and a Canadian – go figure)
  5. we are happier outside than we are inside
  6. laughing is the best medicine for both of us
  7. we feel lucky to have each other out there in the crazy world of business


Last week week Cheekytree blog nominated this blog for The Versatile Blogger award! Cheekytree is a blog by Lila Cheekytree, a textile designer (she makes lovely scarves), who invites us to “follow along on her playful search for beauty & inspiration in everyday life.” And goodness knows we all need a bit of that, it is a similar reason that we started this blog. So please pop by and check her out…

The real idea behind The Versatile Blogger Award nominations is to pass on your favourite blogs to others which is great.
