Sunshine Award

A few days ago, my bloggy friend Desarae from Gladness at Heart, nominated me for the Sunshine Award. I was surprised and so happy and honoured to be one of her choices. Thank you dear!

This talented lady, was one of my fellow competitors in the Rafashion Runway competition later last year, and she was also one of my guests during the last series of the Refashion Month. 

First of all I will start by answering her questions... 

Questions from Desarae for her Nominees:

1. What are some of your 'accomplishements'
(in the Jane Austen sense of the word: i.e. sewing, crocheting, drawing, instrument, singing...)

Many years ago I'd come up with an endless list. apparently I thought I could do anything and had to be always creating either way. Noways, it all comes down to sewing, my passion, one of the things I love most in life. 

2. Where do you get your inspiration (sewing, crafting, outfits etc.) OTHER than Pinterest?

Pinterest isn't really my first stop when searching for inspiration. Usually, when I plan to sew something, I get inspired by everything. Maybe a collar I saw someone wearing when I stepped outside, or maybe that new pattern someone reviewed in their blog, or a theme, I love to get sewing with a theme as inspiration... it pushed my imagination and creativity a little further and I love it. 

3. Name one new thing you want to make/try this year.

Finally learn how to use my serger... it's March already and I haven't given it a single try. Not happy!

4. Given the choice of anyone in the world (presently living),
whom would you want as a diner guest?

This isn't an easy one. But I guess (after a little thinking) that having Tim Burton and his wife Helen to have dinner with, would be terribly interesting. 

5.  What are some things that make you really happy?

My family above all. Sewing, days spent in the country side, lakes, a hot chocolate, a good movie, reading...

6. Favorite book series?

I have too many, but Marion Zimmer Bradley ones have been some of the best I've read. =) 

7. Favorite book made movie.
"The Perfume" - just too good. 

8. Pet Peeves?

(sorry but I am not quite sure I understood the question - translating issues, perhaps - so I'll just pass here)

9. If you could visit any country in the world, where would you go?

Greece... no doubt!

10. When you were a kid what did you want to be when you grew up?
Would you still choose that?

I wanted to be a singer. I guess not anymore. I don't want to traumatize anyone... ahahaha

* And now, I'm just copy pasting from Desarae's blog (hope you won't mind!) *

The Sunshine Award is..

"For bloggers who positively and creatively inspire others
in the blogsphere." 
Those who bring a little sunshine into our day!

  • Thank and recognize the blogger(s) who nominated you (link back)
  • Post the award on your blog
  • Answer the questions given you by your Nominator.
  •  Nominate 5-10 other bloggers (no tag backs) and let them know you nominated them
  • Set 10 questions for your nominees to answer

But, since I am a little cheater I will not pick 5-10 blogs to nominee. There are too many blogs I love, and inspire me everyday for years. I don't want to leave anyone behind, I just thought it'd be fun to share my answers with you. 


  1. Aww, I loved reading your answers! A singer, that is one of my hidden wishes too. :) We should make a duet and tour the world together in clothes we have made ourselves. Oh, I'm sorry, Pet Peeves is a term for something that bothers you...like someone who doesn't use their blinkers when driving, a sticky floor, trash laying around a park, a person's clothing tag sticking up...just little things that get on your nerves.

    Good luck with using your serger! I still feel very intimidated at the thought of using one, so it will be a long time yet before I even look into buying one. :)

  2. Congratulations for the Sunshine Award, Magda :)
    Love reading your answers - we have much more in common (down to the still-to-be used serger. Nevertheless, mine has been "on hold" for quite a few months ...)

    1. Thank you! I've got my serger for about 3 years now... never used it!
