11 Little Things About Myself

1. My name is Scottie Key. I’m named after my great grandfather, 9 

generations back, Francis Scott Key. He wrote The United States of 

America’s National Anthem.  

2. My blog name, Scottie’s Paper Dolls, get’s it’s inspiration from my grandmother, who I 

called Mimi. Growing up, she was very poor, however she loved fashion. Every year her 

family received one Christmas catalogue. She wasn’t able to afford the clothes or the dolls, 

so she made paper dolls and paper clothes out of the catalogue clippings. When I was a 

little girl, my Mimi taught me how to do this as well. The blog name is in homage to my 

grandmother, may she rest in peace.

3. I have two very large Great Danes named Catherine & 

Stella. I adopted Catherine (Black) and Stella (Blue) is a dog 

I'm fostering. They are my very special girls.

4. I’m a science fiction geek. I take Doctor Who and Star 

Trek very seriously.  

 5. I’m a licensed Cosmetologist (that means I’m a hairstylist).  

 6. My addiction to Diet Coke is no joke and I wish my insurance would pay for me to go to 
Diet Coke rehab.   

7. I’m from Memphis, TN but New York City is my most favorite city in the whole wide world and I think of it as my second (and favorite) home.

8. I speak Spanish as a second language.

9. I want to see the world. I love to travel.

10. I walk a very fine line between interesting and crazy.

11. “I will have poetry in my life and adventure. And Love. Love above all.”

Elrese’s Questions For Me

1. When and why did you start your blog, what inspired you to do it?

My Cousin Genna, Brother Eli, Brother Andrew, & Sister In Law Mallory
I started in August 2012. It started small. I had so many friends who wanted advice about where to shop. They all encouraged me to write a blog. I had no idea how much I would love it and because I’ve loved it so much, I’m actually considering changing my major to fashion journalism.

2. Apart from blogging, what is your favourite thing to do?
This is going to sound cheesy, but I love spending time with my family. I have a very cool family.

3. Which country do you live in?
The United States of America

4. If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would you go to and why?

Venice, because of the history, the art, the people… and because it’s sinking.

5. Favourite make-up and / or beauty trick?

Using a foundation brush, I mix my foundation and face moisturizer together to create a tinted moisturizer. 

6. If someone gave you a million bucks, what would you do with it?

Set my family up, invest and donate.

7. What are your favourite designers or local/department stores?

Chanel. I love Chanel. Maybe it’s because my first job in the fashion world was with Chanel, but it’s my ultimate favorite.

8. Who inspires you?

My Daddy, Dana Key (12/30/1953 - 6/6/2010)
My father. He passed away two years ago. He lived his life dedicated to his beliefs, achieved and surpassed his goals, he was a brilliant leader, a loving husband, and the best daddy in the world. I miss him.

9. What is your favourite season and why?

Fall. October is my favorite month! I love the clothes and the food!
