Awards:: Versailles

Firstly, I'd like to thank two of my blogging friends for passing these two lovely awards on to me and secondly, to apologise for being so slow in thanking them.

The first one is from the lovely Emily, from Smile Emily. She is a gorgeous girl with a beautiful blog, so do pop on over and give her a visit.

As we all know,there are a few things to do when you receive the award.
1 When you receive this award you should thank the person that awarded you this in a new post.
2 Name 10 things that make you happy.
3 Pass this award on to 10 other bloggers and inform the winners!.

I pass this award on to all my readers, as they all make me happy with their beautiful, creative and ever inspiring blogs!
So please accept this from the bottom of my heart.
I will do another post on 10 things that make me happy soon (I promise).
The second award is from the ever so talented Julie from Being Ruby
A lot of my readers know Julie, but if you dont, do yourself a favour and visit her very inspirational blog. She is a very talented gal ... our Julie! She created this beautiful award.

My last little bit of news is that we are popping over to France for the Easter break. We are visiting the Palace of Versailles ... which I cannot wait to see! I need to clear my head and take a little break. Hopefully, I will do a post of this spectacular palace after I get back.
I know I have been off the radar for a bit, while trying to finish my Fat Duck project, as well as design a wallpaper for Cole & Sons competition (as part of our assessment), but I do read your blogs (even though I dont always comment).

Happy Easter everyone.


  1. Congrats little darling deserve it! x

  2. Hi Marina!

    Congrats on your awards and have fun in France, I'm so jealous! Good luck with your busy days too.

    In response to your comment, I try to walk on the balls of my feet in heels on mistake could be disastrous!! :)


  3. Oh congrat's honey on your awards, Julie did an excellent job on that award.

    I know I don't have to say enjoy yourself in France, but relax and take it easy and yes I'd love to see a post on the Palace of Versailles....lucky girl.

    hugs DJ
    ps just so you know while your livin' large in France I'm doing my bit for the Aus tradition and camping this Easter weekend....can I come with you :)

  4. Dear Marina,
    Verailles is one of my MOST favourite places and Palaces. You are going to love it and be walking around with your mouth open, like I was. It is HUGE. I was walking down the Grand staircse thinking, Marie Antoinette walked down here !!
    If you have time, go and look around Versaille, the town. It's so lovely and they have a wonderful market, a fish market and antiques.
    .... and, well done on your awards. You thoroughly deserve them.
    Enjoy Versailles and I look forward to seeing your photographs and to hearing what you thought about it. XXXX
