A Major Award

It's quite thrilling to know that someone reads your ramblings.  I was nominated by two marvelous blogs (Dolly Dorm Diaries and Among the Dolls) for the "Prestigious Liebster Award."  
Oh yeah.  

The questions asked by Dolly Dorm Diaries are:

1.  What part of doll collecting to you love most?
A: Learning about the history from each time period.   And spending all my money on clothes for my vinyl companions. 
2.  What are you to your doll(s)?  Mom? Caretaker? Friend?
A: Caretaker, I suppose.  I don't exactly enter into their world at all.  
3.  What doll is your mini me?
A: #24 is the closest AG has come, but if Isabelle had brown eyes, she'd probably be the closest. 
4.  What is your favorite AG pet?
A: Josefina's chickens, of course! 
5.  Ever been to an AG Place?  If so, where?
A: Seattle and Los Angelus 
6.  Take your dolls out in public?
A: Somewhat.  More rural public than the city.  
7.  Beach or mountain vacation?
A: I'd like to say mountain, but there's no way.  Beach.
8.  Favorite vacation spot?
A: Lake house in really hot weather.  
9.  Favorite AG Horse?
A: Steps High
10. Early riser or night owl?
A: Early riser
11. Own an AG boy doll?  Name?
A: I'm glad you asked!  He will be joining us shortly, but there's no name yet.  

Among the Dolls Questions:

1. How long have you collected AG dolls?
A: Since Christmas of 2004  2. Who was your first AG doll?
A: My Grandma gave me Kirsten because I loved "the pioneer doll." 
3. How many AG dolls do you have?
A: Oh goodness.  30, I think, but I haven't counted in awhile.  I'm hoping to sell a couple soon.
4. Do you have any customs? How many?
A: Yes; one at the moment.  Jaikey, who's parts consist of Ivy's face and eyes, Saige's hair, and a smattering of freckles.
5. Who's your next doll?
A:  Marie Grace custom!  Fingers crossed at the moment; I'm hoping to find a Ruthie wig to trade with her old one.  We'll see.
6. What's your favorite song?
A:  There's never only one.  Oh, That Thing You Do (by the Oneders), Anything Goes, Come Fly With Me, and The Way You Look Tonight (all sung by Frank Sinatra).  I'm a big fan of Swing.
7. What's your favorite book?
A: To Kill a Mockingbird is up there.  I have three favorite series', however.  Little House on the Prairie, Little Britches, and The Chronicles of Narnia.   Mom always read those books to us at night.
