A Beautiful Blogger Award Compliments of Linda at Book girl of Mur-y-Castell

Thank you so very much Linda. I love your blog so this means all the more. I encourage you all to stop by Linda's brilliant site and say hello.

The rule is nominate seven other bloggers for this and then tell everybody seven things about yourself.

Here now are my seven nominees...

Anca's bolgs is stunning and creative as is evident from her work above.

St. Ainolopa's blog is nothing short of whimsical.

Naomi's blog is design at it's best.

Mary's Detroit Photoblog
You will absolutely love Mary's take on Detroit. She has a very good eye.

Read. Read. Read
Milka's blog is book review at its best. She is thoughtful and well read.

Mimi's blog reads like a chic LifeStyle magazine.

Elle's blog is wicked fun and super finds. You won't be sorry you visited.

...And now seven things about me.

I want to be as elegant as Lena Horne is when I'm 90 years old.

Pearls are my birthstone.

I wear Chanel Gardenia.

I love silk slips.

This is summer dream spot.

 This is a shot from my favorite tv show, Recreating Eden.

And this is my obsession, the rosemary plant.
Happy New Year's Eve eve,

    And Happy New year. I love the way you presented this, it is really lovely and makes me want to visit all the sites you mentioned!

    Thank you for awarding me and including me.

    I am honored and pleased.

    I am on the road, a day's drive away from home, and not at my desk or my regular computer. When I get home, I may respond to this (or sooner?) We won't be going home for several days.

    I've been considering making my blog and award free blog, but your lovely presentation is inspiring.

  10. Congratulations on your award, Simone. I shall be visiting some of these instamediately.

  11. PS--I like your film list on the sidebar. I have only seen seven of them (!), including Notes On A Scandal very recently, so this gives me lots of new items to place on my Netflix queue.

  12. I can understand why you won the award. Happy New Year.

  13. I like the beautiful pictures you show. Did you know that that the pearl was the symbol of Art?it might explain a lot.
