Sunshine-y Day

My blog has received a charming little award just for being happy and fun.   I'm not sure how much fun I've been lately as this time of year is kind of my off-season, when things are hectic and I don't seem to get much time for creative playing. 
I would like to thank the Peppermint Mocha Mama for nominating me for this award, mainly because it cheered me up in one of the more chaotic months of my life (and in an effort to remain sunshine-y, I'll spare you the long details! LOL). I wish I could nominate her right back because her blog is always a sunny part of my day (and because I'm still in shock and amazement of her crockpot-kool-aid-yarn-dying and hedgehog-knitting skillz)!   She is a crafting machine!  And she just spreads fairy dust wherever she goes!
I'm feeling pretty undeserving but will just accept it as a challenge for next fall when my creativity and fun-factor tend to peak.

For now I need to answer 10 questions:

1)  Favorite animal:  Cat, horse, hedgehog
2)  Favorite number:  Don't really have one
3)  Favorite non-alcoholic drink:  Pumpkin Spice Latte (Caramel Brulee Latte, too!)
4)  Facebook or Twitter:  Facebook
5)  My passion:  Sewing, quilting, knitting, cooking, gardening, reading
6)  Getting or giving:  I love to give!
7)  Favorite day of the week:  I love Fridays because it means everyone is home for the weekend...and then I love Mondays because it means I'll have the house to myself for the next five days!  
8)  Favorite pattern:  plaids 
9)  Favorite flower:  Any one my husband wants to give me!  I love roses, mums in the fall, crocuses and hyacinths in the spring
10)  Favorite country:  UK:  Ireland, her scenery and her people, are so, so fun, Wales will always have a special place in my heart and England...ahh!  Some day I want to go to France & Italy.  I LOVE to travel--to learn about the people, architecture, history, vegetation, their foods...all of it! 

And now I need to nominate 10 Sunshine-y blogs. This part doesn't seem fair because there are probably a good 30 or so that are my favs so, instead, I've listed a random sampling of all those talented bloggers out there (in random order):

Aren't you sweet - and you are too sunny... I love tooling around your garden and sewing room with you. You're my favorite coffee partner in the mornings.
