I've Been Tagged!

Thank you Charmaine, from My Best Friend Craig, for including me in your question game that is going around blogland.

Here are the rules I've been told to follow:

1. You must post the rules.
2. Answer the 11 questions the tagger posted for you and then create 11 new questions to ask the people you've tagged.
3. Tag 11 people and link them in your post.
4. Let them know you have tagged them. 

And here are the 11 questions I must answer:

1.  What is your design style?

My favorite style is ECLECTIC.  I like so many styles, that this is the best way to fit them all in, and show my self-expression.  I love a little contemporary, a little mid-century classic, a little get the idea!

2.  What is your favorite room in your house?

My favorite room to be in is our sunroom, although it is not fully decorated yet.  It is the warmest and brightest spot in the house and has a beautiful view overlooking our property.  Odd that I haven't finished decorating that room..hmmm?

3. What is your dream vacation?

My dream vacation was a trip to Paris in 2010.  I think my new dream vacation is to go back to France, possibly to Provence and to revisit Paris, using my new knowledge of great decorating shops, boutiques and finds that fellow French bloggers have introduced me to!

4.  What is your favorite city?

Paris.  Hands down.

5.  Spring/Summer or Fall/Winter?

Spring and Summer, definitely. I am an outdoors person and love to get my hands in the garden.  I love working in the yard and being outside with my animals.

6.  What is your proudest DIY project?

So far it is the headboard in our Master Bedroom and my recent sofa reupholster!

7.  What is your biggest indulgence?

My biggest indulgence is buying our beautiful Thoroughbred horse, MacBeth's Madigan, aka "Willie"many years ago. I can't believe I spent that  much for a horse, but at the time, I never hestitated a minute.  He is still a loving member of our family.

8. What is your favorite food? 

Right now I'm obsessed with grilled fish tacos.

9.  Lake house or condo in the city?

Years ago I would have only said lake house, but now that I've had a taste of NYC and Paris, I love  visiting a booming metropolis and taking in all it has to offer (which is a 360 from my life in the 'burbs'). 

But my all time favorite place is my in-laws beach house in Delaware:

10.  What is your most treasured item in your home?

My husband, 2 kids and my son-in-law, 
Next are my animals,
Next are the things I grew up with that remind me of my mother and my father.

11.  What is the last book you read?
