A Giveaway, Two Events, and Four Awards

(That's right, four.)

 So. Some odds and ends.

 Number one.
A lovely giveaway at Old-Fashioned Charm! Miss Laurie has reviewed A Jane Austen Devotional and will be giving away a copy! Click on the picture below to go to the giveaway post. =)

Number three.
I was awarded three blog awards ages ago and still have done nothing about them, but I was reminded a few days ago when Miss Dashwood gave me a new one.
I'm going to do a little thing - call it cheating if you will - and combine them all. They all require 7 random things about myself, so that means that by combining them I only have to write 7 rather than 28 (hooray!). The first two require that you pass it on to 10 people, but the last two require 15. So I'm going to do something odd and tag 15 people, and you can all choose whichever three you would like. ;-) I know, that doesn't make much sense. But it's the best I could do. Because I didn't want to tag 10 people for all 4 awards and 5 people for 2. That would Just Be Mean. ha

1. "The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award" from Miss Dashwood! 

2. "I'm an Inspirational Blogger Award" from Miss Elizabeth, Abby, Miss Laurie, and Miss Dashwood!

3. "The Versatile Blogger" from Julia

4. "Tell Me About Yourself Award", also from Julia! 

Thank you very much, Abby, Miss Dashwood, Miss Elizabeth, Julia, and Miss Laurie!! I was so happy to be awarded by all of you.

And, the rules are almost always the same; on all of these, you share 7 random facts about yourself, on 1 and 2 you're to tag 10 bloggers (as I said above) and on 3 and 4 you're to choose 15. Also some of them say to thank the people who gave it to you & link to them, but I'd say that should be obvious. ;-)

So, 7 things about myself. Hmm...
1) My two favorite colors are pale pink and pastel purple/lilac/lavender
2) I prefer pastel colors in general.
3) Soon I will start on a sewing project: a Regency ball gown. We just got more material for it today.
4) I like cats. =)
5) My favorite ever American Girl book from my younger years is Samantha Saves the Day
6) I had a Jane Austen-themed birthday party a year or two ago and hope to post about it one of these days.
7) Speaking of posting, I'm hoping that my next post will be something fun. So be on the lookout. =)

And now, The Awards.
In reverse alphabetical order of the blogger's names. Because I get tired of alphabetical order. 
Miss Laurie
Miss Elizabeth
Miss Dashwood
Mel (but where has she gone?)
Maria Elisabeth
Lauren (of Jilla)
Lauren (of Books, Fashion, and Tea)

I enjoy blogging with each of you! =) And of course, all my dear followers and/or writers I follow. 

Well, I think that's it! 


Miss Laurie of Old-Fashioned Charm said...

Thanks for posting about my giveaway and about Charles Dickens Birthday Week! Hehe, Mr. Tulkinghorn looks so mysterious! :P

You're welcome for awarding you and thank you for awarding me. These awards are fun but sometimes it gets tricky to find someone who hasn't been awarded yet to award! And you make the third person I've been awarded "The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award" by. :)

Oooh! Samantha Saves the Day is a great book, I remember loving that one too! :)

Lauren said...

Thank you so much Melody!

I was so surprised to see my name in the list!!!

Hmm... choosing awards, it kinda feels a bit up-myself for choosing such great awards for my blog, but okay if you insist.

I chose 'The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award'. I think I'll just go with one, (to be easier).

Although, I have no idea when I'll post the award.

Thanks again, I love this blog!!!


Lauren said...

Sorry, come to think of it I might use the 'Tell me about yourself' award instead, I don't think the 'irresistibly sweet' award suits my blog.

Miss Dashwood said...

I knew five of those things. :0
Samantha Saves the Day? You TOO??? I loved that book! I used to imagine that I was Samantha in that book. I adored it.
Now I am QUITE curious about your next post... hint, maybe?

Abby said...

Thank you very much for awarding me! I think I'll just take the first award since otherwise it might be a little too confusing :') Thank you very much again, and I look forward to passing it on!


Charity U said...

Ah, thank you, Melody! I have a list of awards I need to accept too...maybe today. :)

Lauren said...

Thank you so much Melody! I chose the Irresistibly Sweet award as I already had it and thought it might work better to post about one;) I always loved the American Girl books as well! Particularly, Josefina and Kirsten. How fun that you are going to make a Regency ball dress! I hope you will post about it:)

Julia said...

Awards! Oh my! Why, thank you very much! :D And you're welcome for the award(s) I gave you. :D


Miss Elizabeth Bennet said...

I didn't realize you awarded me the award, but I've also awarded you the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award!

Thanks for the award!

Would you rather hear the story...
