Un an déjà !

One year has gone by since the first post on VDP and what a year it has been! Thank you all for following and commenting, I do appreciate it so very much! I wonder: who could play VDP a birthday serenade on this mandolin which I saw in an antiques shop in Saint Louis neighbourhood? I'm so sorry for not being able to visit all your blogs as usual, I'll get back to my normal rythm asap!
----------------------
Que le temps a passé vite depuis le premier billet de VDP ! Merci à tous ceux qui suivent ce blog et à ceux qui y commentent, c'est tant apprécié ! J'ai vu cette mandoline dans la vitrine d'un antiquaire du quartier Saint Louis. Qui saurait jouer une sérénade d'anniversaire à VDP ? Je suis désolée de ne pas pouvoir faire ma tournée de tous vos blogs, je m'y remets dès que possible.

Another Blog Birthday! I've only been at this for a little over 13 months and it's been a lot of fun.

Very nice composition. I really like the tapestry as the backdrop and the mandolin is beautiful. Happy Blog Birthday!

What a beautiful image to commemorate VDP's first anniversary. Can it be only a year? You've made such a wonderful impact on the cdp community. Happy anniversary and here's to many, many more.

CONGRATULATIONS! This is a beautiful still life worthy of a Great Master - which you are! I so wish I could play, but we'll leave that to someone who can do it right. I'll listen :) I hope we have many more years of VDP coming up!

Bob Crowe said...

Is it your anniversary? Congratulations on all the hard work and the eye candy you've given us. If I could find a mandolin in a St. Louis neighborhood I'd try to play it for you.

Hello there.
Regarding my on my blog you wondered if you missed something. Time and again I have posted about Fort Casey State Park (two posts ago) and last summer too.So here is a thumbnail:
Fort Casey State Park is located on Whidbey Island in Washington state. Admiralty Inlet was considered so strategic to the defense of Puget Sound in the 1890s that three forts, Fort Casey on Whidbey Island, Fort Flagler on Marrowstone Island, and Fort Worden, were built at the entrance with huge guns creating a "Triangle of Fire" that could theoretically thwart any invasion attempt by sea. Fort Casey is now a 467 acres marine camping park. Fortunately there was never an invasion. Just tourists today.
I hope that helps. I guess I figure you all can see inside my head. No please you say. LOL MB

Visiting is one thing I don't have much time to do myself. I don't go door to door like Jehovah's Witnesses, but try to follow up visitors.

I like the4 mandolin - the way it is presented leads me to believe the person had some training in Window Display techniques.

VP said...

Happy Birthday! This a nice surprise, and in few months you ever convinced me to come to Versailles for the first time in my life!
By the way, a great picture either...

Leif Hagen said...

O medito gozaimashita! Congratulations on your 1st blog anniversary! Grattis! Alles Gute! Wishing you another year of showing us some fantastic French fotos! Bravo! Encore!

Happy CDP birthday

Julie ScottsdaleDailyPhoto.com said...

very nice composition. Happy anniversary to you. It is a big accomplishment and commitment to do a daily photo blog.

James Mark said...

As an average sort of guitarist I think I could manage Joyeux anniversaire on the mandolin.

Félicitations !

akarui said...

Bon anniversaire pour cette annee passee et je suis la pour la suivante :)

Tom said...

Félicitations pour les chouettes photos et la régularité des posts.

Congratulations on your anniversary. I always enjoy visiting your blog and reading your witty comments. Looking forward to another year.

Allan Alexandre said...

Félicitation surtout pour ta gentillesse; ton travail sur ce blog qui est fait avec passion; pour la mandoline as-tu demander le prix? Bonne semaine chez toi

Rebecca said...

I love the display

paulboo said...

What a lovely collection of things here, sorry I can't play the mandolin or anything else :-)
Bon anniversaire Ciel.

Catherine said...

Un an ! Tu es sûre ? Tu maîtrise tellement bien que je pensais que tu blogais depuis des années ! J'ai dû prendre le blog à son tout début alors.
Et bien ? Qu'est ce que tu attends pour continuer ? A demain..
BON ANNIVERSAIRE au son des mandolines.
