Passing on the Sweetness: A Sweet Award - with no calories!

Thank you to Dawn at Noir and Chick Flicks for sending a delivery of "The Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award" to A Person in the Dark. Here is the link to Dawn's lovely and lively blog - Noir and Chick Flicks. Dawn always has such beautiful posts about classic films and stars and I learn something new there all of the time! Plus - she has a brand new boop-boop-be-doop look that I love!

Here are the rules:

1. Thank and link to the person who nominated you.
2. Share 7 random facts about yourself.
3. Pass the award to 12 of your blogging buddies.
4. Notify the recipients.

7 Random Facts About Me

1. I love plaids, polka dots and stripes.
2. Franklin Delano Roosevelt is my favorite President.
3. I was born and continue to live in the place I love most in the world - aren't I lucky?
4. I love glitter. There can never be too much glitter!
5. Louis Prima is my favorite entertainer.
6. I believe a glass of red wine just must be good for you!
7. I was once married to Cary Grant and his last words were my name (okay, that is just a wish, not a fact). 

Here are 12 Fabulous Blogs (so hard to choose!). Please give them a try. I know you will like - make that love - them:

1. Via Margutta 51: oh what a special blog this is. Clara is an enthusiastic and clever movie lover. I love all of her posts and her cleverly named blog (see if you can figure out what it refers to).
2. The Lady Eve's REEL LIFE: I love this blog so much. The Lady Eve is a magnificent writer. Really - she needs to get paid for this stuff!
3. Viv and Larry: All things Vivien Leigh and Laurence Olivier - and I do mean all things. A beautifully crafted blog about 2 beautiful and talented people and the world they inhabited.
4. Life as a Movie: Utterly charming, and filled with delightful insights and luscious photos.
5. The Silver Screen Affair: This one has the glamour thing down to a science. I even feel more glamorous just by clicking on the link!
6. Classic Movies: Sharing a love of films with great articles, quotes and links.
7. Forever Classics: Meredith loves movies and it shows! A very attractive blog to spend some time lost in a world of black and white (and color, too!).
8. Java's Journey: A really fun, informative well-written blog that explores all of the things - and I mean all - I love about classic films.
9. Flappers, Flickers and Silent Stanzas: Reviews, poetry, photos and stories all about pre-code and silent films. A very special blog that I know you will love.
10. Edna's Place: This is the blog site for the spectacular and important website "A Journey to Paradise" all about Charlie Chaplin's wonderful, elusive and beautiful leading lady, Edna Purviance. I can't say enough about the work that site creator Linda Wada has poured into this site. Go now!
11. Backlots: A new favorite, this one is chock full of goodies (you know, the kind we like - stars, stars & more stars).
12. Comet Over Hollywood: A real beauty with the added attraction of being extremely well written and brimming with love for classic films.

Thanks again, Dawn!
