One Lovely Blog Award!

I am so honoured to receive this lovely award from Melissah at http://www.scrapbook-melissah.blogspot.com/ It was quite by chance or fate that we met as Melissah was looking for ideas for pool-houses and stumbled across my blog!

Melissah emailed me as she couldn't believe there was another person out there who loved absolutely exactly the same things as she did!  Even owning the same laptop!  She wrote me this beautiful email conveying that she just wanted to communicate with someone else who loves what she loves!  I suggested that she should start a blog as she was obviously very talented and passionate about so many things.  So thank-you Melissah and I look forward to meeting you in October!

Here are the 15 blogs I would like to pass the award onto ~

1. http://www.castlescrownsandcottages.blogspot.com/
~ Anita you are the sweetest person and always comment on my blog without fail and I find that loyalty and friendship so endearing!  Also, your artwork is exquisite and I believe you will publish great works.

2. http://www.karinagentinetta.blogspot.com/
~ Karina you and I have become such friends without even meeting!  We are so alike and your work with French antiques is outstanding!  You have a gift my friend and a great strength that not many people possess.

3. http://www.hamptontoes.blogspot.com/ ~
Lisa you were one of the first bloggers who I found and became so excited that you commented on my blog.  Then we swapped recipes and the world seems all that much smaller.  Your chic ability with interiors and the lovely way you go about your everyday life is awe-inspiring.

Dear Marie  .... you were so sweet to email me and ask if you could use my home on your blog which I was so honoured by!  You were also one of the first to comment on my blog and gave me the recipe for the snow-effect which I think has become the best feature of my blog!  You have such style and a great eye for detail.

7  Things About Me ~

~  I dream of one day finishing my two books and having them published!

~  I have always felt that I have been born in the wrong era and that I belonged in another century!

~  I always feel like I have never quite achieved enough and that there aren't enough days to achieve everything!

~  I believe the greatest gift you can give someone is to listen to them and to believe in them!

~  I am obsessed with crowns and the 18th century!

~  I would love to ride in the French countryside in full equestrian kit!

~  I love getting into my pyjamas and watching movies with my beautiful family!

my best wishes always
M.A. the 2nd

My precious friend,

I am so honored...so truly honored that you would mention me here. I look at your list of things about you and I have to say that I agree with each one. I believe YOU WILL PUBLISH ONE DAY for your exquisite taste has a place in this world of magical books that not only allow us to dream but to see what is possible and then make it happen. THANK YOU SO MUCH; I receive this with great humility and yes, I do hope that things transpire for us both. There seems to be a glimmer of hope for me so far, as far as a different path to help me get started in my writing and art, but it will take TIME and some work in preparing or rather setting myself up. More on that as/if things transpire.

I LOVE YOUR NEW HEADER!!!! Oh my dearest, I do not believe I have ever sent you any of my art work. Please email me:


I would like to send you something.....MERCI MILLE FOIS, Anita

Hi Frances, I don't know how I missed this one - I was just going back through your old posts. Thanks for the kind words - you really have changed my world. Blogging has made me very happy (slighlty more obsessed) and my dreams everynight are filled with beautiful things...bizarre. I enjoyed your 7 things & look forward to hearing about them in more detail in October eg. the books. You took a lot of time to make lovely comments on everyone's blog so I look forward to checking out a few new blogs that inspire you and no doubt will inspire me too!
