Thank you for all your wonderful, supportive comments Monday on the happy occasion of writing one thousand blog posts. As always, your encouraging words are much appreciated. I am so lucky to be part of this amazing international blogging community!
Today I had a rather unpleasant session in the periodontist's chair, so am not feeling up to much writing. While waiting for the doctor, I discovered photographs of my friend Julie's (Agape) beautifully-decorated apartment in the October-November issue of the magazine Maison Francaise.
I came home to find invitations for the Antiquites Brocante which begins Thursday at Place de la Bastille, Paris. (Guess where I'll be spending the day?) Even better, Gemma sent me a lovely card and some gorgeous pages from a 19th-century scrapbook found in her attic. Thank you, Gemma! You are so thoughtful and the pages are fabulous!
Speaking of fabulous, no doubt you're familiar with my friend Maryam's delightful blog My Marrakesh. She's a finalist in the Best Middle East and Africa blog category in the 2007 Annual Weblog Awards. If like me, you're a fan, you can vote for My Marrakesh here. Strangely enough, in this contest, you can vote once a day through Thursday, Nov. 8. Bonne chance, Maryam!
