The Sunshine Award

Meg the Grand kindly shared a Sunshine Award with me, thanks Meg! So I want to pass along the award to 10 blogs that bring sunshine into my life every day :) Some of you have recently received the award, so don't feel obligated to participate, I just want to show my appreciation.



Here it goes for the questions:

Favorite Color: Green, I mean blue! It's hard to pick. Sometimes maybe it's red...but probably most of the time it's green.

Favorite Animal: I really like cats, but owls are cool too.

Favorite Number: Uhhh, I don't really have one.

Favorite Non-Alcoholic Drink: Coffee.

Facebook or Twitter: Facebook. I don't tweet.

My Passion: I love history, I love literature and I love art.

Getting or Giving Presents: Both. There's a distinct pleasure in giving but it's nice to receive too. :)

Favorite Pattern: New Look 6781. It's one my first real successes and I wear my two shirts ALL THE TIME.

Favorite Day of the Week: Friday because I have dance class.

Favorite Flower: Tulips.

Favorite celebrity role model: Yikes. I'm not sure. I generally admire Susan Sarandon's political activism and I enjoy her movies.


And here are the blogs I'd like to pass the award onto:

1) Back at you, Meg the Grand!

2) Farben-Freude: polka dots!! Visiting your blog is a always a treat; the world seems a little brighter there :)

3) Two Little Cabbages and Cie: thank you for sharing your triumphs and your struggles in every day life. :)

4) The Makings of an Urban Rustic - I am truly inspired to make pants (panties) now :) And thank you for all of your encouraging comments.

5) Handmade by Carolyn - I wish I had your skills and creativity! You make it look so easy; thank you for sharing what you know and always encouraging seamstresses (insert alternate word here) to try new things.

6) Minnado's House - lovely knits; and I love how you make your wardrobe work for you!

7) Delfinelise - I wish I could aspire to your elegance and ingenuity! And I love your colors.

8) Sew and So is a blog I've recently discovered and I'm really impressed by the lace knitting!

9) And another new blog to me - Pretty Grievances. I love your take on haute couture and I've discovered a lot of inspiring designers thanks to you.

10) Kestrel Finds and Makes is a blog where I hover and don't leave a lot of comments but I love all the vintage knitwear patterns. The scooter pattern most recently on display got my gears spinning. :)

Thanks to all of you for bringing a bit of sunshine into the bloggy world!

  1. Thanks for that! I think I'd have trouble coming up with a celebrity role model too. I'm generally either not paying attention or not impressed. Also, I'm kind of impressed with the lace knitting too--I keep looking at it and wondering how the heck I did it!

  8. Oh my goodness, I only saw this post now. My offline life has been crazy busy and I've not been able to read all my favorite blogs (including yours) as much as I would have liked lately. So please forgive me for not saying a huge THANK YOU, you're so kind! earlier. But really, thanks! You have just made me smile and put some sunshine in my day. :-)
