My very good friend, Kat of Candles Crafts and Whatnot, gave me The Marie Antoinette Award. Check out the new Twilight jewelries at her site. But aside from her beautiful crafts, what keeps me enthralled is her sense of humor. Try reading what she has to say about this award here and I'm sure you will roll in laughter the way I did. Don't forget to check out her other blog, Soy Wax Candles Blog.
I feel so honored because Marie Antoinette is the perfect epitome of a real fun, fearless woman during her time... a woman who knew what she wanted and went for it, never mind if it was an unpopular decision... a Queen, a mother and a wife who stood by her man (the King) until the end... a woman whose last words were "Pardon me Sir, I meant not to do it" to a man whose foot she inadvertently stepped on before she was executed on guillotine. [All of these I learned from a quick research at Wikipedia :D]
This is the kind of woman I should aspire to be. But then, I am no Queen and I have no King, or even if I did have one, I don't think I would be willing and ready to give up my neck for him. Lol!
Yes, Kat, she lost her head but the guillotine is now behind the times so I guess we get to keep our own heads on our shoulders. Lucky you, I don't have a sweet tooth so I won't take a bite of that chocolate cake of yours. And like you, no way am I going to be caught in that garb.
Without much ado, here are the rules for this award:
1. Please put the logo on your blog.
2. Place a link to the person from whom you received the award.
3. Nominate at least 7 or more blogs.
4. Put links of those blogs on your blog.
5. Leave a message on their blogs to tell them.
