Sunshine Award!

I got my first award!!!!!!
The lovely JoAnn at Sweet Pepper Rose nominated me for the Sunshine Award. I'm soooo excited. It's really nice to be noticed. :)

The Sunshine Award is: given to bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others in the blogosphere.

Thank you so much JoAnn for recognizing me. That's really sweet. You have no idea how much it means to me. Really!

I would like to ask everyone to head on over to JoAnn's blog and check it out. Also, there are some other really great blogs nominated along with me, please have a look at their blogs too, if you have a chance.

Now it's my turn to nominate some folks.

Here is how the award works:

First, thank the person who gave you the award and link back to them.
Second, answer the following ten questions about yourself.
Third, choose 10 of your favorite bloggers and link their blogs to your post.
Be sure to let them know you are nominating them for the award.
Last, copy and paste the award to your blog.

Here are my answers to the questions:

1. Favorite Color: Mainly purple, but red catches my eye as well.
2. Favorite Animal: I have a sweet spot for polar bears, but I think my main love is for dogs.
3. Favorite Number: 618 - don't ask.
4. Favorite Drink: Hot? tea - Cold? water (isn't that boring?)
5. Facebook or Twitter: Facebook - I keep in touch with my family near and far.
6. Good Book or Good Movie: Good book because it lasts longer than a movie.
7. My Passion: Photography, inherited from my mother.
8. Giving or Getting Gifts: Giving, especially something I made.
9. Favorite Day: Friday, end of the week and estate sales abound.
10. Favorite Flower: Peony - beautiful to look at and smells beautiful, a rare combination.
