I saw this post on Rainy Day Wanderer's blog. What a great idea to copy it. Some of your answers surprised me and others I nodded. Fun to read!

Len said...

I saw this post too and really enjoyed it! Hmmm...Black Forest Gauteux!!! It sounds yum. Some of your answers would be the same as mine :) Like pearl and cherry blossom tree :) Thanks for sharing this, Ann! Love it.

Susannah said...

Nice choices Ann, hmmm, I wonder how I would answer those?

Ellen Brickley said...

Loved reading your answers Ann, some of yours are very like mine - although I think I'm an October :)

Old Kitty said...

Oh Ann!!This is so lovely!!!! Of course you'd be heels!!! Yay!!!

Thanks for such an evocative picture of you! take care

Liza said...

I love the stone being a pearl...

Ann said...

Hi Theresa, I am intrigued...what surprised you and what made you nod??

Thanks Len, I love both pearls and cherry blossoms. They remind me of my Grandmother.

Hi Susannah, This was harder than I thought it would be. I did hesitate on occasion wondering if I was laying all my oddities out there for all to see.

Hi Ellen....Ahhh October in Ireland, yes but I could only pick one. I also deliberated on June but as I choose autumn as my season I decided to be consistent. :)

Hi Kitty, Yep! Gotta love the heels!

Hi Liza, Pearls are just so timeless aren't they.

Talli Roland said...

I saw this on Lindsay's blog and thought it was fanastic. I love your tree answer... cherry trees have got to be the loveliest!

Joanna St. James said...

I have just thought of what my answer would be and decided I should prolly not do this list out loud. On another note Ann, the toddler picked your name as a winner in my not 100 or 150 followers giveaway, can you please send me an email so I can have your book shipped?

Ann said...

Oops, I had to change one or two I seemed to have missed.

Ann said...

Hi Talli, Not only are Cherry Blossom tree's lovely to look at, the smell of spring!

Hi Joanna, The same thought crossed my mind, but I had pushed the publish button...oops too late! Give that toddler of yours hugs and kisses of thanks from me! I won! I won! Yay!

Christine said...

Great fun, Ann! I'd never heard of a Stutz Bearcat. You'd look mighty fine in it wearing something royal blue and swish, with heels, of course.

Ann said...

Ahh and don't forget the pearls Christine!!! LOL!

Plain Jane said...

What a great list, it was almost like poetry.

Susan Fields said...

What a fun post - I loved reading your answers! It really makes you think...

Patricia Stoltey said...

This is a great post idea, and the photos are perfect to illustrate the list.

Clarissa Draper said...

These are really great. I should do this.

Hey Ann! I'm still making my way around to visit everyone. Thanks for the shout out, btw. Isn't if fun to 'borrow' post ideas? I borrowed it from L'Aussie Writing. I loved you answers, especially the dove and stormy.

Hope you're having a great weekend and I'll probably see you next Saturday!

Julie Musil said...

What a fun list. And your pictures were so cool!

Olive said...

Cherry blossom is my fave too! Am so envious of my family, as they live in a place called "Blossomgrove." So pretty.

Jackee said...

Beautiful list!! Have you read Richard Peck's Here Lies the Librarian? I almost loved that book as much for its talk of the Bearcat and the Stutz daughter as I did for the phenomenal writing. :o)

Thanks for sharing, Ann!
