Yes, I've been tagged by Celia . The tag rules as I understand them are:
1. Once you are tagged, link back to the person who tagged you.
2 Post the rules on your blog.
3. Post 7 facts about yourself on your blog.
4. Tag 7 people and link to them.
5. Comment on their blog to let them know they have been tagged.
Seven facts about me:
1. I'm an Australian with a Viennese mother but to my sorrow I never learnt to speak German.
2. I live close to Coogee beach but have also lived in western New South Wales on the black soil plains.
3. I started out as a preschool teacher but then worked for 25 years in the Research Library of the Australian Museum and became impassioned about rare natural history books, natural history illustration, book binding and artist's books.
4. I've travelled a bit (but not as much as I'd like) to Tuvalu and Fiji in the South Pacific, the US, Vienna, Prague & Budapest, and to New Zealand (more times than I can count).
5. I love dogs. And I'm fascinated by wolves, coyotes, dingoes...
6. My family and friends are more important to me than I can say.
7. I have two great kids, a beautiful daughter-in-law and the most wonderful little grand daughter, Sophia, here wearing all her Christmas finery at once.
I've tagged these people whose blogs I read daily. (I didn't tag quirkyartist because she was tagged a few days ago.) There are many others I also read but 7 is the limit so I had to stop. I hope you don't mind being tagged. Until this week I'd never heard of tagging (in relation to blogs) so here I go. Please have a look at these great blogs.

3. Rhonda, from Canada, a prolific book maker and book artist.
