The rules are:

1.  When you receive the award, link back to http://keepcalmandsparkle1099.blogspot.com and the blog that nominated you. http://dancing2praisehim.blogspot.ca/ was the blog that nominated me but anyone nominated by me would link to my blog.

2.  Display the award button in your post.

3. Answer all of the 12 questions listed in this post (do not make any of your own).

4.  Nominate 12 bloggers.

5. Notify them that they have been awarded.



...................................................................................................................................


 
1.  What made you decide to start blogging?
 
I've wanted to for a few years now.  I don't know anyone with a blog.  I guess I was just inspired by reading blogs by other girls.

 
2.  What is your fashion style?

I didn't used to be into fashion.  Like AT ALL.  But currently, I am developing my own style :)  It's under construction so I can't tell you exactly what it looks like.  I 'm drawn to vintage and classic styles.  I love bows, polka dots, floral, denim, keds, moccasins, oxfords and converse.  A modern style I love is Taylor Swift's.  I also love Audrey Hepburn's style.  She's so classy and elegant.  Timeless.


3.  What is something none of your followers know about you?

When I was 2 or 3, I used to recite the book Madeline word for word.  If you asked me I might still be able to :)


4.  What are some of your blogging goals?

I just love sharing my ideas and thoughts with other girls!  I also hope to inspire people through my blog.


5.  What is your favorite place to shop?

My favorite used book store is #1 for sure :)  Next would be Michaels craft store and
thrift stores (I like to support recycling ☺)



6.  What is your ideal amount of followers?

Well, 100 is my goal!  Maybe someday.....
But for now, I get super excited whenever I get a new follower or comment!  Thanks you guys! ☺



7.  What are your talents?

I would probably say the fiddle/violin.  I have been playing since I was 6 years old.



8.  Are you a leader or a follower?

When I was younger I used to be a follower but now I'm a leader for sure.  Here's a quote by Anonymous (I actually don't know who it's by!)

Be yourself.  Everyone else is already taken.



9.  What is one of your favorite quotes?

Well.... I have quite a few!  Here are some of them:

Be who you are and say what you feel cause those who mind don't matter and those who matter don't mind.     -Dr Seuss (best poet EVER!)

When you judge people you don't have time to love them   - Mother Theressa



10.  Do you have a favorite book or book series?

Ugh!  Why must they ask me this question!  I have SOOOO many favorites so it's very hard to decide.  Here are a few of my favorites though :

-The Ingo series by Helen Dunmore
-The Museum's secret series by Henry Chancellor
-The Dragon Slippers series by Jessica Day George
-The Missing series by Margaret Peterson Haddix




11.  Out of all the synonyms for elegant, which would you describe yourself with (smart-stylish-dressy-graceful-dainty-fine)?

Probably Graceful ~



12.  What is your favorite flower?

Well, I have two ☺  Carnations and daisies ~  They are both so lovely and come in lots of colors!  I love how carnations are so frilly!  Daisies come in many varieties and sizes.  I can't decide which one I like more!
