The Liebster Award

I was awarded the Liebster Award by my blogger friend MJ 

The rules for the award are as follows:
1. Give a shout out to the blogger that nominated you!
2. Answer the eleven questions the nominator provided.
3. Nominate a few other bloggers that have less than 200 followers.
4. Post eleven new questions for your nominees to answer.
5. Contact your nominees to let them know.

Here are the  questions MJ set for me:
1. If you could be an animal, which one would you be?
a penguin - a bird that loves language (with it's own publishing 
house!) but cannot fly
2. Name three things you are "obsessed" with currently
that's easy - crafting, photography and the beach
3. What is the last book you finished reading?
the latest book in the Maisie Dobbs series - my favorite
4. Why is your blog important/special to you?
A place where I can be myself, express myself, challenge myself, 
and make friends at the same time - what's not to like
5. If you could travel back in time, where would you go?
another easy one - Georgian England
hopefully to have tea with Jane Austen and Mr. Darcy
6. What is a quote you really love?
It ain't no use putting up your umbrella till it rains
7. What have you learned in life?
That every day is a new beginning
that there are plenty of little pleasures to be found everywhere
8. Name one blog you recently found.
9. Who is your favorite music artist?
The Man in Black himself - Mr. Johnny Cash
10. Polka dots or plaid?
Polka dots, of course, and pink ones at that
11. What is your zodiac sign?

The four nominees I've selected are:
Ana -
Esther -
Hilke -
Trixie -

And here are my questions to them:
1. What surprised you about your blog?
2. What do you find beautiful?
3. If you knew you could not fail, what would you do?
4. Three things to take to a deserted island?
5. What do you keep under your bed?
6. If you had a magic lamp, what would you wish for?
7. What is your favorite movie?
8. If you could have dinner with anyone, living or dead?
9. How long could you go without internet?
10. If you could have any super power, what would it be?
