Question and Answer Time

My new friend Magali from  
has been so kind to include me in her list for a blog award.
 She has also agreed to let me simply
 answer the questions....
Merci Magali.

I usually don't reveal that much about myself on a personal level so here goes.

  1. What is the one song/music you listen to when you need to be cheered up?
This is really tricky since my dear friends know that I am a music nut and have a wide variety of music playing at different times of the day and week. 
My kids always say that growing up, 
their friends claimed that they always heard music playing when visiting our home.

Probably true.
In the morning I love classical,
by late afternoon I am in a jazz slash blues mood
and during evenings on the weekend ...
I love something that gets me moving... we actually have a list of songs that both my daughter and I know by heart and cue us to the dance floor slash living room....
on occasion after dinner.

2. Are you a cat or a dog person?
Hmm....guess this says it all!
3. What is the little habbit you know you shouldn't have but can't give up?
Oh, that is easy. I can waste a lot of time with a good cup of java!!!

4. If you didn't live where you are right now, where would you like to live?
I have always felt as though I am a Maritimer at heart. The call of the ocean and all
water makes me happy.

5. What is the colour you never wear?
Yep, orange is just not my colour....

Oh, and yellow is just not working for me either...

Oh, why tell the truth....I have a real love affair with BLACK...

6. What makes you cry for no reason?

These days everything.... I think if Suzan from Simply Vintageous is reading this she could explain why.... men.....e

7. What's the device that makes you happy you were born in this era rather than in the Middle Age?
 Most definitely the computer....access to all that amazing music and images!! 

8. Is there a TV-show you hate to miss?
Nope...I am not really a follower of different TV shows although if I like a show I prefer to download it on iTunes or pick it up through Netflix.... 
and yes, I am personally speed-viewing Downton Abbey  
9. What's the title of the book that changed your life?
oooh tough question..... uh... well it did not change my life but it got me reading for the love of it....

10. Which fictional character are you in love with?
Uh-oh ....stumped...pass. :)
11. How did you start blogging?

I have been blogging for a little over 3 years now and when I started I was motivated to blog about where we live...Quebec city.

But like many bloggers, 
it took me awhile to really find my groove....
my love of design goes way back
to a dream that I never followed as a teenager...
but now blogging allows me to explore that dream in a very different way..


  1. CRYBABY lmho!!!
    Loved reading this Donna!

  2. I didn't know you were a music nut. I did figure you for black though. Please tell me you're not another crier. I'm surrounded by them! And, I'm not good with emotional outbursts. I'll just pat you on the back and change the subject! Or, laugh at you. Te he

  3. ps - Wasn't that you trying to steal my Mr. Darcy? That counts as in love with a fictional character!

  4. It is really nice hearing some personal stuff about you, Donna. I completely understand the last answer, my love of design also goes back to when I was in High School...I wanted to be an Interior Decorator. So today we have the chance to talk about what we're doing on our blogs...decorating!
    Sorry to hear that almost everything makes you cry, that men....e also makes me feel weepy 80% of the time, when will it be over?!
    Hugs, Cindy

  5. Interesting to read some little tidbits about you. You really are a music lover - I find that amazing. I like the quiet, personally.

  6. I am so sorry, but Mr. Darcy is for the orange, I'll take it but leave the yellow and you might have to share the black the music selections are spot on....Jazz is a glorious listen in the afternoon.


You can leave a comment....totally up to you....Yep, I do love it when you do!
