Happy Birthday, Cecile! (and a party with presents)

Glitter Photos

And many happy returns!

For those of you who don't know her, Cecile is a great person and friend - I feel privileged to know her! Visit her at

And because I just adore parties, and since Cecile is living a hundreds of miles away, I've decided to throw my own party for Cecile!
So in honour of Cecile's birthday, I'm giving away a present to one lucky commenter today. And what that present could be, you wonder? A book, of course. Everyone who knows Cecile knows she just LOVES BOOKS, and here goes this appropriate present:

To win this book you have to tell me do you know Cecile, what do you think of her (only nice remarks, please :)) and bring her a cyber present - it's her party after all! You have until tomorrow evening (Europe time) when I'll randomly pick a winner. Please make sure I have a way of contacting you!
Please spread a word about this party around the www, we want to have a big one :)

P.S. If you don't know Cecile, you can still win just leave your cyber present in the comments :)


  1. Happy Birthday Cecile!!! She is the best. She was one of my first online friends and I don't know what I would do without her now!! Seriously the most supportive, funny, caring person. I hope she has a wonderful day.

    Great idea for a contest!

    (don't enter me, I have the book:)

  2. Thanks Mandi for stopping by! I'll enter your name and if you win I'll send you another book, we'll think of something :)

  3. Hi Frana!

    Ugh, that Cecile chick? Oh yeah, I have heard some not so nice things about her! .....only kidding. If anyone knows Cecile she is a doll! Like Mandi above said a real sweetheart and all around nice person! And I just adore her. She has always been supportive of me and my blog with such kind words. Plus she has a great blog! ;-))


  4. Thanks Brande for joining the party! I agree, if I could use only two words to describe Cecile they would be: kind and supportive.

  9. Hey Amy! Thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll have a wonderful birthday!

  10. Of course I know Cecile! I still remember her coming to my blog long before she started her own.

    She's one of the sweetest and most generous people and always has something kind to say.

    She's quite possibly the most entusiastic reader I know and her posts never fail to bring a smile to your face.


  11. Hi Barbara! I agree with you, she is REALLY kind :) and caring, and generous, and....

  12. Hi Frana!

  14. I just checked her website and it is awesome! I definately will have to come back and read more, cause I am on the run right now. Anyway, happy birthday, Cecile!

    Love and hugs, Sanna

  15. Great party Frana :D

    Oh Cecile is just the sweetest. She always leaves nice comments, and she is so welcoming, and a total book hussy. I could not think of a better blog neighbor and friend.

    I found her book through Lea's I think, and then I saw her on other blogs before I made my way to her lovely blog.

    Happy Birthday CECILE!! :D

    Oh gifts, gifts!!

    Here you go, I found this lost Scottish gentleman in the street. He needs a home and I am sure you can take him in. He does wear a kilt and a sword, something about time traveling. My old English is not that good

  16. Thanks Sanna! And don't forget to stop by Cecile's blog - it's a great place.

  17. Hey Bloduedd! I'm sure Cecile will find a home for him. And if she doesn't, well... I have some space in my bed... I mean house :)

  18. Happy Birthday Cecile!!!

    Cecile has become my virtual party buddy ;)

Thank you for your kind words. It really is bring tears to my eyes and joy to my heart. I was always raised, "You treat people as you want to be treat - no expect to be treated" and that is how I live. (((((group hug)))) And Frana, you know I love you!!!!!
