Maybe I'm a brat, a spoiled only child (except of course for my Evil Twin, Cherie), but that tingly frisson I get when a fellow blogger thinks I merit the most gracious and flattering cadeau that tells me they have passed a bon moment chez moi -- I am thrilled.
I appreciate the awards, I'm always surprised, and the time it takes in everyone's busy lives to give someone a compliment in our virtual world. . .well, I'm more than grateful.
My "pass-along" duties will be fulfilled, I promise, but I wanted to get my thank you, thank you, thank you responses out before anyone might think I'm blasé, forgetful or just plain rude.
From the top: My darling, fabulous, stylish friend and guardian of all that is elegant, Lily Lemontree. Merci ma chere. How exciting to be able to put Marilyn on a post(!) We look exactly alike -- she's blonde, I'm blonde. Ahem. . .
A new discovery: That Girl. Since we've just recently met, I've spent some considerable time visiting chez elle and it seems to me there is nothing That Girl can't do. She knows all about beauty AND she can cook. Amazing. Go see for yourself.
Thank you so very, very much for your lovely gift.
If you're looking for Sunshine, and who isn't(?), the joy-filled Champagne and Macarons is a must visit. When you think about it though, anyone who names her blog "Champagne and Macarons" is by definition in a good mood 24/7. Merci for your daily sunshine and the award.
I will pass along these awards, but have to run out again (with Cherie, unfortunately) to find the ultimate, take-her-breath-away birthday gift for Edith and the clock is tick, tick, ticking.
Have a beautiful weekend. (If you wish you were in Paris, it's raining.)
