And this award goes to...

Hello lovelies!

  I have a few awards that I have been nominated for recently. Well, within the past four months. Still recent, right? Anywhoo. I have a feeling that I will regret posting these awards together but, I think I'll risk it ;) So, shall we?

We'll begin with the Liebster Award from Ginny and June over at Small Town American Girlz:)

(Kinda cute, aye?)

So the steps for each award are the same (and perty simple.)

  1. Nominate 3-7 bloggers (your favorites or somebody new;)
  2. Answer the questions given you or follow specific instructions.
  3. Make sure you post a comment on their blog telling them they've been nominated.
  4. Copy the award image into your post.
  5. Link your post back to the original.
  6. Put the award on your sidebar or page.
  7. Oh, and don't forget to copy these rules!
Have fun!!!

Here are the questions they posed to me:

1. What is your favorite book?
My favourite book is "Anne of Green Gables" by L. M. Montgomery. A very close second would be "The Witch of Blackbird Pond" by Elizabeth George Speare. Awesome book!

2. What is your favourite flavor of ice cream?
Hmmm... I think cake batter but coffee is good, too :)

3. What profession would you like to persue when you are older?
I am rather fond of writing, but I think my ideal profession would be motherhood.

4. Does your handwriting look better in marker or pencil?
DEFINITELY pencil! No idea why but marker just doesn't work out the way I intend it to. ha!

5. What does the fox say?
Wow. That's a tough one. Bark? I'd have to listen to the song!!!

6. Swimming or sledding?
Swimming! Totally!!!! (Although, New England climate allows for both :)

7. If a tree falls in the woods, does it make a sound?
Oh, goodie!!! A physics question! Let's see, it makes a sound wave but that's not the same thing as a sound. A sound is something that starts as a sound wave and travels through our ear canal, triggers receptors in our brain which interpret the sound wave into an identified sound. In short, if you weren't actually there to hear it, no, it makes no sound. (FYI I love ♥ physics ♥)

8. Why did you start you blog?
Well, I really enjoy doing things with my dolls and connecting with other doll lovers out there.You girls are awesome! ;)

(Love this)

literary musings

"I do like a road, because you can be always wondering what is at the end of it."
~Sara Stanley, The Story Girl

I like the way that sounds. You never know what unfulfilled promises lie ahead of you. 

As you may be able to tell, I'm on a slight L. M. Montgomery kick at the moment. Slight. Her stories and irrepressible characters just never get old! (Plus, I'm in the throws of Road to Avonlea and I'm LOVING it!)

Anyways, I think I'm going to be posting these "literary musings" on and off, at least through the Summer, perhaps.

I have a busy schedule over the Summer (preparing for bazaars and stocking up on inventory) so I profusely apologize for the length between these posts and the interest factor. (Or lack there of.)

If you have any favorite quotes I would love if you shared them in the comments! 

Have a lovely day!
