Sunshine surprises!

Isn't it fun to be surprised? That was me this morning. I was over at one of my favorite blogs, Twinkles, Tutorials & Twirls to see what she was posting about. I was so happy to find out she had been awarded a blog award! The Sunshine Award! This is a nice award, and Estelle really deserves it! As I read through her list of favorite things, I was being quite entertained. Then at the end when she gave out her list of five blogs she was passing it along to, I saw Little Susie Home Maker on the list! Wow! That sure made my day!
Now she had come by to visit me and let me know, but I hadn't read her comment to me yet! So it was really fun finding out this way. Thank you, Estelle! Please go visit her blog it is such a great blog with so many wonderful craft ideas. I don't know how she comes up with all her ideas, but they are always great!


I now need to answer 10 questions and pass on the award to 5 blogs who brighten my day...

1) Favourite Colour ~ I have to say green. I am always attracted to the lighter happier tones that are similar to Jade-ite, and the shade of green Araucana chicken eggs! I also enjoy, the sage greens, but I  love red so much it is definitely almost tied! So you see both of these colors repeated throughout my home and life!

2) Favourite Number ~ Well that is a silly question. I think 12, and multiples of 6!

3) Favourite Animal ~ This is a funny question, because I am a big time animal lover! Growing up my parents owned pet stores, and then as a tween they purchased a small farm! Lots and lots of different animals have always been a huge part of my life. Currently we have 2 dogs, 2 cats, 1 cockatiel, 1 dove, 1 hamster, several tropical fish, and around 35 chickens. But my favorite has to be the ever faithful man's best friend.. the dog and his unconditional love! But I really love them all!

4) Favourite Non-Alcoholic Drink ~ It must be freshly brewed unsweetened ice tea, because that is what I drink constantly!

5) Facebook or Twitter ~  I have never looked at Twitter. Facebook is interesting. I have a Google + account associated with this blog. It is kind of fun, but I really enjoy my blog buddies and comments!

6) What is my Passion ~ It is definitely my family. Being a mom is the most important and awesome responsibility I have ever had! I am blessed to be in God's family and love all of my family!

7) Receiving or Giving ~ Of course..giving. Hands down, there is such a reward in giving.

8) Favourite Pattern - For clothing stripes, but for home decor, I love florals!

9) Favourite Day of the Week ~ Probably Friday, because I get to pick up my kids early from school, and then we have pizza and a movie with my Hubby!

10) Favourite Flowers ~ I have a hard time choosing here, but I choose Cosmos because they are so ever true in returning yearly and bringing me waves of pink blooms!

I now pass the award on to 5 blogs that brighten my day
 
 
 I wanted to choose more!
Congratulations! Hope you enjoy the award. Please visit these amazing blogs!

Thank you again Twinkles, Tutus & Twirls
 
Blessings,
Little Susie Home Maker

  1. Susie how sweet of you! I definately think this is an award you deserve. I need to visit the blog that awarded you. Last Friday another bloggy buddy gave me a similar award. I was going to do a post about it today, maybe I will combine the two. Been in the garden and haven't got to it yet. Loved learning more about you. Alot of it was no surprise to me,especially your love for family and the fact that you love to give.

    I am going to have to make a new blog post and think I will do it about my gg dishes that came from England. I don't have much to do today so I am going to take pics and post some things about the dishes. They are not as lovely as your set, but they are very very old. Have a wonderful day! Hugs
