These are a Few of My Favourite Things…

No, I’m not actually going to do a post on the Sound of Music. Hehe. ^.^

I was tagged by Faith at Stories by Firefly! for this tag, called “These are a Few of My Favourite Things”, and thus I shall do it! Here are the rules:

 

RULES:
• Write down ten of your favorite things.
• Tag at least three others!
As Faith said in her posts, I am not going to list my family, but know that they are definitely among my favourites. XD
  1. Books. Of course this is on my list. I love, nay, adore, nay, BREATH books. There is just something so special about losing yourself in a book, in the characters…yes, quite bliss, it is!
  2. Letters/writing letters. Yes oh yes. Nothing brightens my day quite like receiving a letter. And I LOVE putting together a letter to send out. Making little paper-crafts is a passion of mine. Sadly, I only have a few penpals, but I treasure them!on the blogThis is a small letter I sent to a friend, it kind of shows a couple of my ‘paper-crafts’. The glitter heart-card didn’t turn out quite as I wanted, but it’s still glitter-y so…! :D
  3. Boxes. I love decorative boxes. Even if I don’t know exactly what to fill them with, I still get them because they’re beautiful.
  4. Notebooks!! I have an exorbitant amount of notebooks, it’s not even funny. And I love them all.
  5. Washi-tape. Ah, glorious decorative tape. SO pretty. Rae's Washi-tape haul Dec 2015 (3) This is just a small piece of my collection…muahahaha!
  6. Cats.Cats are my favourite. :D We have four delightful indoor kitties and I love them to pieces!!
  7. All things How To Train Your Dragon – I’d be remiss without mentioning this! (I rhymed! XD). I won’t go into it extensively, since you all probably know of my love of HTTYD. <3
  8. Writing. Another known favourite of mine. I love to write. :) And I look forward to the day when I get to share my writing with you readers!
  9. Receiving packages. They’re usually books, and I love that. Being a reviewer is pretty great. :D
  10. Chocolate. Who could forget chocolate?? XD

 

So, there’s ten things I love! And now for who I tag…

 

Soleil at Reviews by Soleil

Kenzie at wherever you want to post. XD I know you don’t have a blog-blog, but you could use your website, twitter, facebook…whatever! I’d even lend you my blog if you want. :D

If you don’t want to do it, don’t feel obligated, but if you want to – great! I’d love to see. :)

Pinterest Favourites Friday Week 20

Good day to you, readers! I am finally getting around to doing another Pinterest Favourites post. So, let’s just dig in. :)

 

I love this for so many reasons!.

I love this a lot. It’s so cool, and also resembles how we live our lives as followers of God – we are Warriors of Jesus!

 

Yayayay! We are...Dragonites! HTTYD fans #dragonitesunite

Found out recently, that we HTTYD lovers now have a proper name for ourselves – Dragonites! How epic is that?

 

Without love, we are nothing.

Love covers all. Truly. I’m learning a lot about this, and it’s haaaaarrddd, but so worthwhile as we want to shine as our Savior does!  1 Cor. 16:14 “Let all that you do be done with love.” 

 

'Today Me will live in the Moment, unless it is Unpleasant, in which case I will eat a Cookie', Cookie Monster Quote.  Hehehe! Sounds good Cookie Monster!

I like Cookie Monster’s reasoning very much.

 

Haha yep!

This is the truth. XD

 

The Sand Cat - my new favourite  cat. I need one one. Now.

A Sand Cat. Which I obviously need quite desperately!! :D

For more pins, you can visit me on my Pinterest board Here. :)

 

What I’m reading:

GIVEAWAY! The Pharaoh's Daughter by Mesu Andrews, giveaway ends 6/30/15.

 

It’s taken me a bit, but I am finally able to read this beautiful book, and with joy too! :)

What are you reading, and pinning (if you have Pinterest)? :)

Pinterest Favourites Friday Week 19

Hello! I am finally back with a Pinterest Friday. It feels like it’s been a while. :) So shall we see the pins? =D

 

Mug ... how to train your dragon, dragon, toothless, night fury, mug I NEED this!!!

I seriously need this cup. I mean, how amazing is that?!?! I love it :D

 

Disney's Tarzan and Jane.. such a good movie!

Because I love Tarzan and Jane, and my sister and I recently watched “Tarzan”. :)

I don’t often pin Gif’s (“But when I do…” Yes I’ve been on Pinterest too long!) but it’s HTTYD and it’s funny. Plus I’ve seen this episode of the show. (Yes again – there are HTTYD shows, not just movies!)

 

Funniest Minion Quotes Of The Week

Hehe. XD

 

Verity Poldark  from Poldark, actress Ruby Bentall - she is so sweet!

Because Verity from Poldark is such a sweet character. I really am hoping she gets a happy ending!!! <3

 

mission

Very true.

 

What I’m reading:

I just recently finished beta-reading a friend’s book, and have now begun this book:

Through Waters Deep by Sarah Sundin

Beautiful cover, beautiful story. I love the main character, Mary, especially. Even though I’m only a couple chapters in. :)

 

So, what are you reading/pinning?

Favorite Screen Characters Tag

Hello!

There have been several tags going around, haven’t there? I think they’re quite fun, so I rarely balk at them! =) I’ve been tagged by Faith Blum for the Favourite Screen Characters Tag. From what I gather, the rules are listing your top ten favourite television/movie characters – should be fun! So here are mine:

 

1. Toothless

.

This should be obvious. :D I know he’s a dragon, and not a human-character, but he’s my favourite!

 

2. Molly Gibson from Wives and Daughters (And Roger of course!)

Awwwwww. "Yes, yes I will." Hehehe.  "Wives and daughters"

She’s just adorable. So sweet!

 

 

3.  John Thornton from North and South.

It’s Richard Armitage, playing Mr. Thornton…need anything else be said?!

 

 

4. Jane and Tarzan from Disney’s Tarzan

probably one of my favorite parts <3....tarzan's face haha

Yes, I am aware that these are technically two characters, but they go together, so…

 

5.  Anne Elliot and Captain Wentworth from Persuasion (1995)

Persuasion

I know – I just keep breaking the rules! Oh well…These two are soo…*happy sigh* I love this movie!!

 

6. Esther Summerson from Bleak House

Esther Summerson {Bleak House}

She’s a very sweet character. :)

 

 

7. Lucy Pevensie

We can’t forget her :)

 

 

8. Verity Poldark from Poldark

Verity Poldark (Ross' cousin/Francis' sister) (Ruby Bentall) http://www.farfarawaysite.com/section/poldark/gallery.htm

I just love her character. She is one of the best, (if not the best?!) of the show. Anyone else watching Poldark on TV right now?

 

 

9.  Georgianna Darcy from Death Comes to Pemberly (and also her love, Henry)

Death Comes to Pemberley: Eleanor Tomlinson as Georgiana Darcy - she is SO beautiful!

Georgiana and Henry - Death Comes To Pemberley

-Such a cute couple!! Georgianna seems so refined, and genteel. And very sweet. :)(Kinda hard to believe that the same actress plays Demelza in Poldark!! – Still cute and sweet though!)

 

10. Elinor Dashwood from Sense and Sensibility (and sweet Edward, too! :))

Sense and Sensibility (2008) -- Dan Stevens as Edward Ferrars >>>

I love these two, as well. I often relate to Elinor. They’re great characters!

 

So that’s ten. I know I am forgetting some, but it’s hard to think of every movie you’ve ever seen on the spot. :) And also, I should say – these aren’t in exact order. That would be way too hard! These are just ten of my favourites – although, Toothless is definitely #1 :)

And as for who I tag, I tag YOU! If you choose to do this, leave a link so I can read it! :)

Sisterhood of the World Bloggers Award/Tag

Good day! I was awarded/tagged by the lovely Miss Shantelle over at A Writer’s Heart. Thanks Shantelle! =) The questions look like fun. And since it’s Friday, I thought I’d just go ahead and post this instead of a Pinterest Favourites post. I think I’ll just go ahead and dive right in!

 

Rules:

  • Thank the blogger who nominated you, linking back to their site.
  • Put the award logo on your blog.
  • Answer the ten questions sent to you.
  • Make up ten new questions for your nominees to answer.
  • Nominate ten blogs.

 

And here are the questions for me to answer:

  • What genre have you read most of this year?  Oh tough question…I’ve read a fairly wide variety of books so far…The most would probably be Christian fantasy/medieval fantasy, etc.

 

  • Do you enjoy fairytales? Which ones do you like most? I do enjoy them, but it’s hard because I stay away from magic. I’ve rewritten one of them so far without magic and with a Christian theme, and I’d like to do that with more of them. As for which I like most…hmm. I’ve always been rather fond of Snow White, but ever since writing the Beauty and the Beast story, I absolutely fell in love with the redemption story of that one. :)

 

  • Favorite dessert? Too many! I guess I’ll go with cherry cheesecake, because that is absolutely amazing! =) 

 

  • Which Disney princess are you most like and why? Well to be honest, I don’t really relate to any of the Princesses. If I was to be in a movie setting like those, it would be something like How to Train Your Dragon. I asked my Mum for her help with this question (it’s easier for someone else to tell you who you’re most like!) and she said I’m kind of like Valka in HTTYD2 – Hiccups Mom. My Mum said ‘She’s calm, and kind, but can defend herself and is strong, yet still gentle, and is rather like a dragon whisperer, which is what you’d be.” Only I’m not her age…XD But yeah, that’s what I’ll go with. Hope that’s okay! I think I’d be more of a viking than a princess. =) S

httyd 2

 

  • Which Disney prince do you consider the most dashing? So, we don’t watch Frozen, but I love Kristoff. And Tarzan. Technically neither are princes, but they’re close enough, right?!

  • What was your favorite blog post this year? Of my own or others? I’m gonna go with others…but that’s still hard, because I read SO many blog posts. I was really excited to read THIS post of Alica Ruggieri’s. :)

 

  • A few books you hope to read soon? I’m waiting for two review books that I am SO excited for. They are “Not by Sight” by Kate Breslin and “Through Waters Deep” by Sarah Sundin!

 

  • Favorite book of the year? I’ve already read SO many books this year, and this question is way too hard…The following books will make my absolutely favourites list of the year: “The Tomb” by Stephanie Landsem, “The Huntress of Thornbeck Forest” by Melanie Dickerson, “Not Abandoned” by MacKenzie Morganthal, “Brothers-in-Arms” by Jack Lewis Baillot, “The Fragrance of Geraniums” by Alicia Ruggieri and “Resistance” by Jaye L. Knight. Sooo many good ones!!

 

  • Summer or winter? This doesn’t even require a nanosecond of a thought – WINTER!!

Lovely!

  • One goal you have? Hmm..Well, ultimately I want to follow wherever God leads. But one dream/goal I have that I hope will be accomplished soon is being published. :)

Thanks again, Shantelle, for the award! Now, here is where I am supposed to name who I shall pass the award onto, but I cannot think of ten bloggers, let alone those who have not already been awarded! So, if anyone is reading this right now who has not been awarded but would like to, please consider yourself nominated!! And just go ahead and used the same questions – I’d love to see other’s answers to them! If you do answer these questions, leave a link for me to see! =)

Pinterest Favourites Friday Week 15

Hello!

Another Friday, another post! I thought I was going to have to miss this one, because I have been rather ‘down and out’ recently because of some severe back pain, but praise the Lord it is slowly slowly slowly getting better! At least enough so that I can do this post. :) So I think I’m just going to jump right in:

 

I just really love this. ^.^

 

Hehehe!.

Made Mum and I laugh. Yes, we love nutella!

 

I Just Wanna Have Abs...olutely All The Nutella

One more Nutella pin… :D I just wanna have ABS…olutely all the Nutella.

 

XD ” When I’m out with my mom and see HTTYD merchandise: MOM: What are you doing?  ME: Can I please has?!”

Hehe, love this. And you know, couldn’t have a week without pinning something HTTYD! It’s nearly impossible!

 

Metallic Blue And Black Lace Masquerade Mask    Blue by SOFFITTA

And a masquerade mask! I love these things.

 

I recently finished reading “A Dream Not Imagined” by Shantelle Mary Hannu, which you will all get to hear about again soon when I post my review. :) I am currently reading “Meant to Be Mine” by Becky Wade. :)

What are you pinning and reading this week? :)

Pinterest Favourites Friday Week 14

Good tidings to ye!

Shall we begin right off with the pins?

 

Perfect!!! It's pretty AND it will keep my pretty-much-destroyed fountain feather pen safe from our cat :D

Isn’t this beautiful? I think it is quite fetching, and I would really like it, because it would keep my feather dip pen safe from our cat who likes to destroy it…

 

cute!

I thought this was adorable! I might have to do this in my own home one day. :)

 

I have no idea how this would be done, but it is cool. HTTYD. :)

 

Hiccup Horendous Haddock the Third

And why not another pic of something HTTYD related? Hiccup of course. :)

 

Hiccup, Stoick, and Valka. The Haddock Family *sniff* and *tears*

This makes me sad. If you’ve seen the movie, (How to Train Your Dragon 2) you know why.

 

You are worth it.

And to end on a serious note…How true and amazing is this? Beautiful.

 

I’ve been reading plenty. I finished “The Choosing” by Rachelle Dekker which I will be reviewing on the 27th.

The Choosing - Rachelle Dekker, https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/23627067-the-choosing?ac=1

 

And now I am reading “Five Glass Slippers” by the various authors.

Five Glass Slippers: A Collection of Cinderella Stories

 

And as a bonus to finish off this post, here is some info on a free book you can get soon:

Do you like free books? "A Mighty Fortress" will be free May 18-22, 2015. http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GPDQVC2 Free May 18th-22nd 2015

I reviewed “A Might Fortress” by Faith Blum HERE.

 

And with that, I wish you a good Weekend!
