I have just found out that I have been nominated for the Sunshine Award by the lovely Cheryl from My Little Piece of England ... this is my first award, thank you so much Cheryl, you've really made my day! I got all excited and started to create this post using my ipad, and stupidly have deleted my last post about Wordsworth, does anyone have any idea how to get it back? Sorry back to the award!

The Rules:

1.   Thank the blogger that nominated you - Thank you again, Cheryl!

2.   Answer 10 questions about your favourite things.

3.   Nominate 10 blogs and let them know.


Favourite Animal - Dog - how could I say anything else, Ruby would never forgive me

Favourite Number - 7, since I was little I thought it was a bright, shiny number

Favourite Non-Alcoholic Drink - Tea - I drink buckets of it

Facebook or Twitter - FB, but not really a fan

My Passion - All things vintage (my family and friends are obviously the most important thing in my life, but that goes without saying)

Getting or Giving - I love looking for or making the perfect present for someone, but like to receive things too, especially if thought has gone into it, doesn't matter how big or small, cheap or expensive, what matters is the time someone has given to make it special.

Favourite pattern - Does this mean sewing, knitting or crochet pattern? I can't really follow patterns, just make things up as I go along! If it's a favourite print then it's Cath Kidston Paris Roses.

Favourite Day of Week - I always get the Friday Feeling!

Favourite Flower - Tulips/Daffodils in spring, Roses any other time (sorry, that'S 3)

Favourite Country - Love Greece, but am always ready to come home, so GB!

Now for my ten nominated blogs, was very difficult choosing just ten, but after lots of thought, I went for relatively new blogs, and in no particular order, (apart from alphabetically) so there's no squabbling, they are

Aunt Jane's Attic
Down by the Sea
Four Happy Bunnies
Goodnight Prudence
Little Chicken Scratch
Priddy Priddy
Rosey Tinted Spectacles
Tangled Sweetpea
Where the Moon Sleeps

Thanks again Cheryl, hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and now to see if I can get my last post back!
Any help with that would be gratefully received!

Love, Claire xxx

  9. Hello Mrs!
    Firstly thank you, soo very kindly for nominating me.
    You know me though claire,I am a sensitive soul and couldn,t possibly nominate just 10 lovely blogs...
    I have thought long and hard and would feel that my hands would run away before my brain could catch up on this one!
    So I would like to just say, I think all my blogging pals are the Bees Knees...
    And I am really touched for your thoughts..
    Been trying to ring you lots too!
    love Mariax

  10. Congratulations, a well deserved award. I shall pop across to the blogs you've nominated too, it's a great way to find new blogs to read.

  11. hello Claire
    If you were looking for Missy (Edith Florence) on your Google follow list she is there I have had a look, so she is following you.Her pic (icon) is just a silhouette of a head in grey and Missy beside it. If you cannot see her blog on your reading list (all the icons of blogs) try signing out and log in again and go to your blogs list on layout and add to list.
    Hope I'm not butting in where I shouldn't!!!

    Amanda :-)
