MEMErabilia: The Magick That Is Me!

Days back but not so far ago,
TheBlakkDuchess at Absythe and Arsenic
poured me a delightful cup of kindness:

Hip, Hip, HUZZAH!
and merriest cheer!

My much appreciation to you,
and “yes” to the award’s necessities:

1. Thank and link back to the person who gave you the Versatile Blogger Award:

Dear BlakkDuchess ("click"),
A heartfelt thank~you à la a delicious and ambrosial

wedge of Biting Cream Apple Walnut Pie
(which is always worthy of a special friend and a special occasion!), for this lovely recognition!
Most sincerely,
Cellar Door

2. Share 7 things about yourself:

Harry Kemp’s Scotch Broth Entertainers ~ Season 1925~27

ONE~~Being that it is my favorite soup, I would never stop short of a bowl of Scotch Broth.

TWO~~ I arrived four days shy of Halloween. I do regret that I was in such a hurry, as a Halloween birthday, now that would be the living end!

THREE~~ I am in complete agreement with famous Croatian conceptual artist Željko Kipke, when he says and paints:

I prefer cats to dogs
because there are no police cats.
" ~~ Željko Kipke

FOUR~~ I am not opposed to the aroma of a skunk; the scent quite appeals to me. Unless of course the “skunk” be human! Tee-hee!

FIVE~~ It goes against my grain
to write in blue ink.

SIX~~ The possibility is ENORMOUS that I am Liza Minnelli’s biggest fan.

SEVEN~~ I am a professional dog walker. Once upon a time, when I was strolling with Doctors Seuss and Pepper (German Shepherd charges of mine), Seuss nosed something in the grass. Lo and behold, it was a glass eye! The police have yet to determine who belongs to it.

3. Pass the Versatile Blogger Award along to 10 bloggers who you have recently discovered and who you think are fantastic for whatever reason! Not to forget: Be sure to let your selected bloggers know that the spotlight is theirs!

  1. Congrats to you! A very well deserved award I might say! :0) I just love your blog! ♥

    And thank you so much for bestowing the award on me. ♥

    I gave you a shout-out today on my blog. I had to tell people about you because I always have a good time here and go away with something yummy in my tummy! :0)

  2. Hooray! I'm so glad you liked your award. ^-^

    And the pie... Oh my. So scrumptios. I'm sure I ate just a tad too much... ^-^

    Hope the Halloween costumes are coming along well! I just can't wait to see them! ^-^


  3. Jeanne~~ Kind thank yous and you're welcome~~ it was my pleased~pleasure to present you with this award! And your today's blog speaks of me as well?! This truly calls for merrymaking! Shall we virtually arm-in-arm frolic in shared celebration? Let's shall!

  4. The BlakkDuchess~~ How happy my ears (and me as well) are to hear the the appreciation piece of Biting AW pie hit the spot! If I'm not mistaken, its brown sugar, cinnamon and walnut streusel uptop actually nourishes the soul ~~not too mention a tender, butter-rich crust spilled full and heaping with tender apples, fresh from the Harvest (local farmers market) doing likewise! Thank you again for remembering me during your award ceremonies!

  5. Congrats on the award and thank you for visiting over at Wandering in the Woods.

  6. Do I smell pie?? Oh please may I have just a wee slice? I would happily trade one of my scones for a nibble. :)
    A day of wonder to you and thank you for stopping by the cottage! It's always wonderful to "see" you!

  7. Thank you so much for your kindness! Your blog is just a little slice of heaven - so charming!

    How strange that someone would not miss their faux-eye! What a find.

  8. Congratulations! You are quite entertaining. Glad I was so enticed by your comment on Mermaiden's blog that I had to come visit. This glitter sure tastes good. *nom nom*

  9. Thank you very much, I am honored!
