Night With My Stars - Blog Ball Part II


Time has come to leave your townhouse, pied-à-terre, or flat;
your crib, your chateau, your coop or your castle, it's all about fabulous
without none of the hassle.

listen up, sit straight, for I have this to say;
the master arrives eight sharp with his sleigh.

wisked away, wisked away through Rue's Cassini, Cournot, Clairut.

Le Marais, Le Hallis, Montmarte, Montparnasse, to boot.

for this night is ours in the city of light.

"La Ville-Lumière"

Syndey, Seattle, Drummoyne, & D.C.; Chattanooga, Atlanta, Hertfordtshire, New Orleans; Ontario, Philly, London, L.A.; Fort Worth, to Florida's Tampa Bay.
Birmingham, Brighton, Paris, New York; San Fran, Sugar Land,
all the way from Vancouver.

What counts is you're here & it's now, so enter you do.
This is my appreciation for you being you.

The peasants have gathered to see first hand, the lovely ladies and those manly men.
For they are the finest for all to see, their the people of blogland
who mean much to me.

There were so many wonderful people to list,
I know this is long but I just had to insist.
I tried so hard to show each & everyone,
but I fear that this feels like I have just begun.

So are you ready?

Let this grand party begin...























Kitty - it's Stella McCartney & organic fabrics for you!











"I must say, I am rather exhausted, anyone feel a draft?"

tay tuned for part III


{go forth & live responsibly}
thankful this Thanksgiving
for you

Oh I am so pleased to have come across this post 29 SECONDS after it was posted. Genuine Jane - I am so touched. You know I actually look exactly like that model, how did you know? What a fabulous post. And I laughed and laughed at the watching peasants (Anna W et al). xoxoxoxoxo I will have to go back and peruse again. ...

Oh Debs, what a wonderful post. I felt quite exhausted after reading it and felt as if I had been in a fashion show..... and you've got everyone spot on.
I can't wait for Part 11....I dread to think what I might be doing !!!! XXXX

Francine Gardner said...

This is an incredible post!!! and i was having a bad day (numbers, numbers and red color...) until I clicked on my dashboard!!! Thank you, thank you...I first fell home sick looking at your amazing pictures of Paris, then I smiled, then i laughed (I had no idea I had such a suntan and looked so glamorous...)..... Do I get the outfit as well???

The Cottage Cheese said...

Oh my, what a fantastic post! Perhaps I'm overly-emotional because I'm so darn tired right now, but it made me smile and laugh out loud and brought a little tear to my eye. You are truly a sweetheart: kind, encouraging, thoughtful, downright fabulous, and loved by us all :) I am truly thankful to have you as a friend. I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving and get to spend lots of time with your family. XOXO

TheCluelessCrafter said...

Oh, what's this about a ball? Real or Imagined, I am suddenly feeling oh so provincial!

Help a damsel in distress. . .

"Julie" said...

Love it!!! Those pictures of winter in Paris made me reminisce SO much! I'm part French and my dad took us there for Christmas/New Year and it was SO beautiful! Have a great Thanksgiving!

DesignTies said...

We have an award for you on our blog - come over and pick it up when you have a chance :-)

Southern Aspirations said...

oh my goodness! At first, I was just impressed with the beautiful traveling images. Then I saw the guests (so honored to have been included!!). Perhaps it's the holidays that make me sappy but I was a little teary over it. You did a great job selecting the right outfit for everyone and thrilled to be a part of it.
Happy Thanksgiving!!
-Emmie

The Haute-Shopper said...

What a beautiful post and I'm so honored and thankful you included me! And in Lanvin no less... how did you know? ;-) Loved all the images you picked... ah, if only Paris looked like that at the moment, but it's gray and rainy... sigh. Nevertheless, I'm sure come Christmas it will be beautiful and snowy bright again.

By the way, I fittingly (and by coincidence) not only did another Lanvin post, but also passed you an award, which you'll find on my blog. Hope you're having a lovely Thanksgiving! :)

Pamela Terry and Edward said...

You pegged me perfectly! Are you shipping the outfit COD??? :)

My very best wishes for a most Happy Thanksgiving weekend!!

Barbara said...

Fabulous post! Such fun. You are so clever!

Lori said...

All I can say is FAB-U-LOUS!! I cannot wait to see part 2!

Slices of Beauty... said...

Lovely feast!

DesignTies said...

I'm glad you're not wearing your Birkenstocks in that final photo of you... the black pumps are much more in keeping with the mood you're creating! ;-)

Now... if you happen to cross the border for those cinnamon buns, be sure to get in touch so I can join you. The bakery is just down the hill from where I live... which is good because the walk back home (up the big hill) is just what I need to burn those cinnamon bun calories!!

Anthony said...

Hey, Deb!
Remember me, from Pop Circus?

I feel like I'm totally crashing the party here (And what a lovely one, at that!), but I just wanted to stop by and let you know that I've finally gotten my act together and updated my 'Blog Parade' list. So it now includes a link to YOUR wonderful corner of the 'sphere, finally! I'm sorry that I took so long getting around to it. I really have no excuse... Just guilty of bad blogger etiquette, I guess. :(

Oh, and I've also become an official Follower of Dumbwit Tellher. But, again, I should have done that ages ago! Sorry.

Maybe, if I'm a better blogger buddy from now on, I might make the party guest list next year... We'll see. ;)

SPLENDEROSA said...

OMG, what a delightful, wonderful, beautiful, stunning, simply splendid posting. I do sooo hope I'm on your guest list !!!! FABULOUS FABULOUS FABULOUS. Merci beaucoup, danke, gracias, thanks, much obliged. YOU ROCK BIG TIME!!!!

Ooooh I'm running so very late! I've managed to wriggle into my beautiful dress and I'm feeling a million dollars. So kind of you to have chosen this simply divine creation - not sure if I'll be returning it at the end of this gorgeous event. Well, I'm sorry I can't stand here chatting but there are so many beautiful people to mingle with! Many thanks for the invitation to the event of the year. Leigh

I would like to read a bit more on this blog soon. By the way, rather good design you have here, but how about changing it from time to time?
