Blog Award

The lovely Kyla at Kreative Life gave me this "Marie Antoinette Award". How exciting!!!! I don't feel much like Marie Antoinette most enormous wealth, no real extravagences or excesses to speak of, certainly no great beauty or political influence. And I must say... I am hoping for a much less violent fate than hers at the hands of Madame Guillotine.

The award is called the "Real Person Award". This made me curious. It seems almost incongruous that such an award would have Marie Antoinette as its patron. A woman who historically has been attributed to almost single handedly bringing about the end of the French monarchy.

But as with most people there are a lot of other less glamorous details about her that are not nearly as widely known or well documented. She was in fact an avid reader and was interested in music, science and philosophy. She was devoted to her children and had a enjoyed close friendships with an inner circle of women (Société Particulière de la Reine) who gave her support and companionship. Doesn't sound a lot different from me after all!

So in celebration of this award I am passing it on to some other bloggers whose blogs I enjoy.....


To all of you I say..."Let them eat cake!"


  1. That's cool!! And thanks for passing it on. I feel so honored I'm blushing. ;)

    I like knowing those little unknown details about Marie A. I hope to be remembered for those "smaller" parts of my life.

  2. Congrats on your award! Thanks for stopping by and for commenting on my blog. I love comments! :D I see from your website that you are from the Valley - my son used to live off Pines Rd. He's now in CdA - executive chef at Brix, if you ever get over there. I live in eastern Washington, too. :)

  3. Thanks so much! It's my first blog award. I'm so excited my butt won't stay still in the chair.
