My New Shoes, An Award, and a Fun Song Tag

Hi Everyone!

I recieved a pair of paper shoes, that I purchased from Nancy of Fete et Fleur. You can imagine how happy I was to get them...

They are so pretty and going to look great come this Christmas on where else, my tree. I always decorate it with vintage looking ornaments . I love to collect shoes, swans, angels, unicorns, and peacocks. I want to thank Nancy, for the time she took to prepare and ship my pretty little shoes. She also inclosed something extra. In New Orleans we call that Lagniappe - "A little something extra." . A pretty little bunch of roses. How sweet was that?

Thank You Nancy. XOXO Marie Antionette...

    Pretty weekend

  3. Hello Miss Marie!
    I am so glad you love your new shoes! You have the sweetest daughter. She was a real doll to work with.

    Thanks again so much!

  4. Hi sweetie,
    thank you so much for this great award it means a lot to me. I played your son tag even that it was quite hard to choose the songs, but I simply adore tag games they are always fun. So thank you once again and please stop by to see the song choice.

    Enjoy your Sunday. Suzy

  5. Hello Marie Antoinette! So nice hear from you and thanks for including me in this song tag but guess what...I was tagged for this a few weeks back and listed my embarrassing songs already. I think it was sometime in July. What a hoot it is to see everyone's embarrassing songs. I have to say, though, that I like your songs! I sometimes find myself singing Tom Dooley....and the unicorn song was a hit in the 70's, wasn't it? I do recall the Irish Rovers, I think they had a tv show for a while?

    Love the shoes, they are quite elegant. I can imagine blogland at Christmas when we will all be treated to photos of decorated trees...I will be quite interested to see yours.

    One last thing: Congratulations on your Brilliant Blog Award!

  6. Congratulations on your award.
