A New Year and a New Award!


Happy 2010!

        Did everyone have a fabulous New Year’s Eve?

Le Bal Mabile Paris
         
        I will miss the lights and decorations of the holidays.
But now I'm ready for a sensational new year.

        I have a feeling this is going to be 
une grande année (a great year).

        New beginnings, new goals, new dreams
there is excitement in the air!

    Do I have big plans for 2010?  Oui Oui!

    Do you have big plans for 2010?

The talented writer, Simone  of   The Romantic Query Letter


Kindly passed it on to me.   Simone  weaves tales of historical romance, and the artwork you’ll find on her blog is breathtaking!

Merci Simone!

I've also received another fabulous 'Chic'  blogger award from
Kori of Blonde Episodes



As you can see from her award design Kori loves Marilyn. 
Her blog is filled with retro glamour and
fantastic photos and facts about old Hollywood.

Merci Kori!

Congrats to you Mimi on your New Year's present...a beautiful blog ward! You deserve it :) If that's any indication, then your year is off to a fantastique start! Tres bien, mon ami!
I agree it is sad to see all the beauty and splendor of the holidays is behind us, but at the same time it is so exciting to look forward to new beginnings and to start working on new and different things. I am ready to start new projects and look forward to the possibilities of great things to come this year. I hope the rest of your year is spectacular!

Congrats on your awards Mimi, so much deserved. Your blog is so glamorous, full of inspiration and charm and I enjoy each and every visit.
My plans for the new year are quite simple: sell my late mother's apartment, sell my own and buy a small house with a garden... Did I say simple?????
Yes, I head back to the office tomorrow. Time really flew by during this Christmas vacation but I enjoyed every minute of it so I'm going back to work happy, relaxed and fulfilled.
Good night my dear friend.

Congrats Queenie on your award !! Yes, you truly deserve this award:)) I hope you have a very successful year:)) I would love to give out a blogger award or two, but how is this done? Can you please tell me? I am a Novice in this area:( Merci for adding my grab button on your blog, but it is not working. Be sure that you do not add the "E" on the word Petite, I just use "Petit" as it was available when I registered:))

Hugs,

Congratulations Mimi!

We (hubby and I) had a quiet New Years Eve...but delicious. We uncorked and sipped on a chocolate port that was a Christmas gift from my Son & daughter in-love. It was an amazing "sweet surprise."

Sweet New Year Wishes,

Bonjour Chèrie!!! Oh how kind you are to leave such nice comments. It is so much fun to find French décor photos and try to add pensive thoughts to them; they just get my mind stirring and musing on lovely things! How are you out there in France? I have picked up two lovely françaises who are kind bloggers. What fun! Enjoy yourself ma belle! Anita
