Thank You!

I do, I do I do, I do
and to this I say
Thank You!

I want to thank four lovely ladies who have bestowed upon me 
their kind words and an award to pass along to another fellow blogger.
If I could, I would wrap up this bouquet and send it to all my 
special blogging friends.

I feel so lucky to have chatted with so many lovely 
women and men thru the blogosphere.
They support you, listen to you, sympathise with you, agree with you,
disagree with you, laugh with you and sometimes cry with you...
They can brighten the bluest day.
I can't thank them enough for the times they have lifted me up...
without their even knowing it.
That is the power of these special friendships.

Now to the matter at hand...
The four lovely ladies who were so kind to pass on an award are:

Tish says that 'living a beautfiful life is about style, elegance, 
discipline, simplicity and generosity'.
I could not agree with her more and I find that ever time I visit her blog. She is funny, sassy and a very clever lady. In the past week I have had a glimpse of her friendship with Edith, the other half of the dynamic duo who entertain us with their 'playing dress-up' series. Tish has a love for all things french including french men and on this front I must say she has very good taste. You never know what you will get when you visit Tish which it makes it all the more enjoyable! 
Thank you Tish for the 5-Diamond Award.

Rita is very special to me as this is the second award she has bestowed upon me. She has a wonderful eye for the beautiful things in life. Her exquisite taste leaves us with one glorious photo after another and looking forward to more. Thru her I have created the most beautiful home in my mind. 
I have a few more rooms to go and look forward to what she will be posting next. 
Thank you Rita for The Sunshine Award.

I love Holly's home photo, the lovely brick home with the big wreath at the door and snow gracing her doorstep. Every time I see this image it makes me smile.  Another woman with great taste, she loves all things bright and beautiful. This week I have discovered the most delcious looking chocolate cupcakes, a gorgeous Tess glass end table, her nomination for the most glamorous looking women and men at the Academy Awards (and on this I have to agree with all). 
If you haven't met Holly, be sure to stop by and say hi.
Thank you Holly for the Sunshine Award.

Annie loves fashion and does a wonderful job at putting together an outfit a day for all of us to enjoy. 
She has great taste and manages to find the fun things and tells us how we can get them. A fun white dress from Ruche with the perfect little belt from Banana Republic, to the Frye Rider pull on boots with my favourite, the Foilage Unfolding bag from Anthropologie. The things I could put in that bag! 

Visit will be glad you did.
Thank you Annie for the Happy 101 Award

Now...this is what I will do. 
I will feature each award and list the bloggers for each.
It is easy for me. 
I simply think of the people who follow me 
as their comments inspire me 
and for that I am most grateful

The idea behind this award is to pass 
the Five Diamonds on to five exceptional blogs -- 
I have picked women who have been 
with me from the start
who have shown kindness 
with their words 
of encouragement as I settled 
into my new home:

The Rules For Passing The Sunshine Award
1.) Thank the giver
2.) Choose 12 blogs that bring you sunshine (extremely difficult to limit it to 12)
3.) The proud new owners of the Sunshine Award are to pass it on to others.
12 Bloggers that bring sunshine into my life...

So here are the rules:
1.)When you have received this award you must 
thank the person that awarded you in a new post.
2.) Name the 10 things that make you happy.
3.) Pass this award onto 10 other bloggers and inform the winners.
Please forgive me, 
Special Mention to Vicki @ French Essence

If I missed you, apologies!

Thanks for sharing your beautiful perspective here, it has lightened so many of my days! Thanks for the award, I feel very honoured. Meredy xo.

  7. You are a dear~ Thank you Jeanne.
    It is going to be very difficult to come up with only these few things that make me happy-for there are so many reasons- and to choose only a few special blogs-almost impossible- but I will try.
    Wishing you sweet dreams. I adore our visits back and forth.

  8. Jeanne,
    You are such a sweet friend. Thank you for the kind and most gracious words. I appreciate the 'sunshine' your blog and your friendship have given me. I treasure the special bond we have made in such a unique way...heart to heart, rather than face to face.

    Love and blessings,

  9. What a fabulous post Jeanne! You are going from strength to strength girl, I'm in awe of your beautiful posts. Thank you for my Sunshine Award, I'm in revered company.
    Millie ^_^

  10. Just popped into your happy world... And was sooo surprised to see mention of my little world. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Yes I am a virgo and yes I did survive my evening with thirty school aged kids on Friday night! I'm now exhausted and spent the day on
    my couch in my happy little redone art studio with a nasty cold and fever. My mind is spinning with more ideas but I'm too tired to do a thing!

  11. Hi Jeanne

  12. Jeanne, Thank you so much for mentioning my blog and for the sunshine award. Your blogs are truly inspirational and I love to stop by and read your imaginative, informative and lovely posts.
    I will follow instructions and post about the sunshine award, but how I am going to choose only 12 lovely blogs could prove tricky!
    Thank you for mailing the gorgeous bag prize. Mail, is a little slow in this neck of the woods, but as soon as it arrives I am going to do a post about it, as I have plans for that bag. XX

  13. Oh Jeanne! I am so thrilled to be considered a recipient for your awards. I love these bloggers you've included my name amongst. Thank you so very much for your thoughtfulness.

  16. Jeanne - many congratulations on all your awards - so well deserved... and thank you, thank you, thank you for the sparkly diamond award - I am very honoured and delighted - you are a sweetie... x

  17. Dear Jeanne - you are such a sweet girl! Thank you so much for including me in your list - I can't tell you how much I've enjoyed sharing all your experiences of moving to the UK - I feel as if I know you & just love reading everything you're up to. You are an inspiration (I don't know how you fit it all in) & have been a ray of sunshine over the cold dark days of winter when I have seriously wondered if I'd taken leave of my senses moving back here...thank you x

  18. My dear friend Jeanne,
    What an honour to be included with all of these wonderful bloggers by being given an award from you for my little old blog. I never feel deserving, but I thank you so much and will 'wear' my award with pride and treasure it. It is so lovely when someone bestows an award on us, as it just shows that blogging is worthwhile and, the most worthwhile part for me has been meeting like-minded people like you, Jeanne. I find it remarkable, how we can really connect with people through some words and observations and become reslly good friends.
    Thanks again Jeanne. I'm off to do a new post, don't expect too much. It will probably be somewhat shallow and frivolous, as usual !!!! haha. XXXX

  19. Thank you so much Jeanne! I am in beautiful company here - it makes it even more special! And I left a mention for you too, on today's post.

  20. Bonjour Jeanne,
    FIrst, congratulations on all these wonderful well deserved awards, your blog is beautiful in so many ways.
    And thank you so much for sharing your award, I'm so happy to be included with so many fabulous bloggers. Also a big thank you for your sweet words of encouragement about my little project.
    Bonne semaine my friend.

  21. Oh, my dear, you gave me a wonderful "award" -- you know how much I love your blog and your warm, kind esprit that comes through in everything you do here (and on your visits chez moi).

    Merci, merci, merci.


  22. Dear Jeanne:

    Thanks for the second award. You are very thoughtful indeed.

    You have a lovely blog out here and its our pleasure to hang around here.

    Joy always,

  23. Hi Jeanne

    Thank you so much for this lovely surprise - I'm thrilled to be amongst such wonderful company. Your gorgeous blog deserves every one of these awards - I've so enjoyed your journey from NZ to London and all your beautiful thoughts and images along the way - thank you. Leigh

  24. What a thrill it was to wake up to this wonderful award today Jeanne. Thankyou so much for thinking of me. I almost needed the tissues myself after reading through all these gorgeous comments, which you so deserve.

  25. Jeanne darling I am so honoured and proud to be the recipient of this very special award. I will immediately add this award to my award blog and will do it post about it shortly. Thanks again darling, I will cherish and treasure it forever.

    Love & Hugs
