I was over-the-moon-delighted to find out that Catherine Delors author of Mistress of the Revolution has nominated this site for an Excessively Diverting Blog Award.

Many thanks Catherine.

In my turn I must nominate other sites who match the following criteria…

‘The aim of the Excessively Diverting Blog Award is to acknowledge writing excellence in the spirit of Jane Austen’s genius in amusing and delighting readers with her irony, humor, wit, and talent for keen observation. Recipients will uphold the highest standards in the art of the sparkling banter, witty repartee, and gentle reprove. This award was created by the blogging team of Jane Austen Today to acknowledge superior writing over the Internet and promote Jane Austen’s brilliance.’

So, in no particular order ~

1. Bill Marshall’s Dorothy Dunnett Blog for keeping the flame alive.

2.Tyra’s Garden for beauty above and beyond the call.

3.Jane Brocket for writing my favourite Non-Fiction book of last year, The Gentle Art of Domesticity.

4.Cat Bauer for all things Venetian, especially The Venetian Vampire post.

5. Hoydens and Firebrands for all things 17th C – towards which I’m a tad biased!

6.DeluxeTapestries for so much information on this fascinating art form

7. A Twist of Rotten Silk for 17th century Scotland and the sheer enjoyment of reading Lor’s blog.

Thank you all for giving and sharing so much :o)
