The Widow Black of 'Slightly Obsessed', has nominated Tempus Fugit, the humble ramblings of yours truly for an 'Excessively Diverting Blog Award'.
Started by the blogging team at Jane Austen Today 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."
Now, as I understand it, I have to nominate 7 other 'Excessively Diverting' blogs. This could get tricky... as I think that nearly ALL the journals that I would have nominated have already been nominated. Therefore, my nominees are:
•Au Temple des Modes- Great reference material for 18th C. European fashion (in French).
•Mme. du Jards Atelier- Another great reference site for 18th C. & early 19th C. European fashion. Mme. du Jard makes her own clothing and has lots of rich lovely pictures displayed. In German.
•Musica & Arte- Ninon posts links to some lovely musical pieces as well as art videos and portraits from the Renaissance, Baroque and Rococo era. Good stuff, always worth a visit.
You, fair reader, will have to forgive me for not nominating the full seven journals for consideration... for I only truly follow three journals that are worthy (AND still eligible) of such an award.
Recipients, please claim your award by copying the HTML code of the Excessively Diverting Blog Award badge, posting it on your blog, listing the name of the person who nominated you, and linking to their blog. Then nominate seven other blogs that you feel meet or exceed the standards set forth. Nominees may place the Excessively Diverting badge in their side bar and enjoy the appreciation of their fellow blogger for recognition of their talent.
