I've Been Awarded the Elegant Blogger Award!

Hello everyone! Hamlette has been so kind as to nominate me for the elegant blogger reward, and I can't wait to answer the questions.... This will be fun! :)

The rules:

  • When you receive the award, link back to and the blog that nominated you (Hamlette)
  • Display the award button in the post 
  • Answer all of the 12 questions given in this post (do not make your own questions) 
  • Nominate 8 bloggers (see below)
  • Notify them that they have been awarded. 


1. What made you start blogging?
Well.... I was searching for pictures of Anne of Green Gables, and I came across one entitled "Anne Week" which immediately caught my eye. I followed the link to Yet Another Period Drama Blog, and then I followed Miss Dashwood's links to other blogs. I was thinking while I was reading them "I could do this! It looks like lots of fun!" So here I am, with a blog, and definitely having fun with it! :)

2. What is your fashion style?
My fashion style is cute but comfortable (I hope!). I'll show some of my Pinterest pictures to show you what I like:

love this look!                         I like the top part.

pretty white dress                     absolutely love.

3. What is something none of your followers know about you?
Um...... I have never liked sparkles. In fact, when I was younger, I used to freak out if I got some on me. And they are super hard to get off yourself! And I used to hate tea. I love it now, but I used to think it was the grossest thing.

4. What are some of your blogging goals?
I hope to keep up with blogging now that school starts again and I want to actually publish some posts that have been rattling around in my head.

5. Where is your favorite place to shop?
The bookstore. Indubitably. If you mean clothes..... then probably Forever XXI. But only some of their stuff. Lots of their stuff is kind of out there.

6. What would your ideal amount of blog followers be?
Well.... I'd like to have some more, but it be sad to have so many followers that I couldn't really get to know them. Maybe enough so I would get 3-4 comments on each post.

7.  What are your talents?
For some reason I'm blanking. I must have some...... I love music, I'm an avid reader, I like writing, and history. I believe I'm pretty good at those things :)

8. Are you a leader or a follower?
I am usually a follower, but if no one will step up, I can be a leader. I have thoughts and ideas, but I'm usually to shy and self conscious to put them out there.

9. What is one of your favorite quotes?
Can I cheat and do two? One of my favorite nonsensical quotes is: "I'm not saying she was very silly, but one of us was very silly and it wasn't me!" - Wives and Daughters. Another of my favorite quotes is: "I declare after all there is no enjoyment like reading! How much sooner one tires of anything than of a book!" -Pride and Prejudice

10. Do you have a favorite book or series? 
Just one? I will do a favorite book and series. Book: An Old Fashioned Girl by: Louisa May Alcott. Series:  The Anne of Green Gables series. But I love so many!


11. Out of all the synonyms for elegant, which would you describe yourself with? (smart--stylish--dressy--graceful--dainty--fine)
I have been told I'm graceful, but I don't see how that could be possible considering how clumsy I am. Still, someone said so, and so I must appear so sometimes. ;)

12. What is your favorite flower?
A rose! Your surprised, right? ;) And I love all colors of roses too.

Most of the blogs I follow have already been nominated....
So if anybody is reading this, think it looks like fun, and hasn't been nominated yet, I nominate YOU for the Elegant Blogger Award!

  1. I like that white dress! Very feminine without being fussy. And your quote choices are delightful :-D
