Spring Gala Blog Party

Ladies, are you ready for something simply splendid? Here is something fun for you all. A blog party! Virtuous Girlhood and I are hosting a blog party together. Here is what we are going to do....

If you want to participate inside the blog party you must paste these questions into a new post on your blog. Then come back here and enter your blog post into the linky below. All bloggers who participate will be entered to win one of the 12 prizes! {Also please include a link back to the blog party.}

1. If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?

Europe hands down. I love the history, architecture, museums, food, just the whole experience.  ;-)

2. What is the oldest item you own?

A 1834 German Psalter.

3. If you had to pick one hero, who would it be?

Instead of going with the usual, my parents. It would have to be between Patrick Henry & Gen. Robert E. Lee.

4. If you could have dinner with any three people, living or dead. Who would it be?

Oh. dear. what a hard question. Let me see...well, there's more then three of them, but it would have to be the lovely Long ladies of Marie-Madeline Studio.

5. Which do you like better, Coke or Pepsi?

A few years ago I would have said, Pepsi. But I have turned into more a Coke girl now. =)

6. What would you rather have- chocolate or a cookie?

Depends. I love my chocolate and cookies with a glass milk.

7. What is your favorite season?

Spring or Summer. I like my weather warm not cold.

8. What's your favorite thing about Spring?

All the new life that surrounds you from God's creation.

9. What's your favorite music?

I like classical, soundtracks, country, oldies {mostly 40s}, hymns.

10. What's your fashion/personal style?

I would say my style is vintage, girly, classic, and a little touch of country.

  21. Hello Miss Ashley,
    What a neat giveaway! I would love to enter, but the only thing is, is that I have a private blog, so I can't give you the link to my answers. But I was wondering if I could still enter, and just post them on my blog, and leave the answers in a comment. Would that be okay?
    Thanks a bunch!
    Martha Joy

  25. This blog party is so fun!
    Thank you for hosting it.
    I just entered my links, but wasn't sure where I should put my contact information.

    You can e-mail me at samanthahartzell93{at}gmail{dot}com and let me know what to do.

    Thank you!

  26. I entered...but then Blogger was down so it deleted my post. Is it alright if I enter again?

  27. I went ahead and entered again! Thanks!

  28. This is wonderful! I'm especially eyeing the bath & body and rosette ones! :)

  29. Hi Miss Ashley,
    I was looking back at your blog, and I noticed that my comment holding my entries was not showing, so I just wanted to make sure that you got it. I guess it's too late to change it, now, but I just wondered if it made it through, since I knew that Blogger was having some trouble.
    Martha Joy

  30. Martha Joy - I did receive your comment entry. But when Blogger shut down Thursday-Friday, I lost all comments and post made from Wednesday night to when Blogger shut down on Thursday afternoon. Meaning your comments disappeared. We will still count your entry still.


Hi! Do leave a comment for we love to hear from our readers. We do read every comment, but sometimes we don't have time to reply right away to your question.

Please, no spam. And if you use the Anonymous setting please use your name, or internet nickname. Thank you!

Also, if you have something mean to say, don't say it all. Just keep it to yourself. I don't want arguments to start, or have feelings hurt. Please think of others before you comment anything hurtful.

In Christ,
~Ashley & Gabrielle
