Dear readers and friends, I am very honored to receive this award from the American Duchess. It was originally created by Wolfgang Amade’ Mozarts the Blog and has been awarded since 1998. " The Amadeus Award for Taste and Excellence is to be given to five blogs that meet the qualifications which I have previously stated. Please give it in the spirit of community, love of history, and artful presentation." So, I will certainly be passing this award along, but I need to decide who I want to give it to first :-) So please check back soon. God Bless!
