Suddenly Sunday - A Winner and A Request for Your Help

Happy Sunday everyone! I hope you are all enjoying your weekend and maybe have tomorrow of for President's Day. I know I do and am very happy about it. Yesterday I accomplished little - had to go do the taxes in the morning and then prep and go out to a banquet and some dancing in the evening - where unfortunately my dress ripped (but at least it was on the way home - right down a seam). But had a great time anyway.

This week there will be a couple reviews as well as a spotlight on the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire. The 100th anniversary is coming up next month and there are lots of celebrations and events and such that are going on. I also wanted to share some further reading on the subject and get you in the mindset for the new episode of American Experience that will be on the 28th of February.

Alright, so I'm sure you're all dying to know who the winner is of Madame Tussaud by Michelle Moran and the wonderful pair of Marie Antoinette earrings. Well, wait no longer! The winner is....


Congratulations! I hope you love the book and that the earrings look even better in person! I am sending out an email for your mailing info to pass on to the author. If I don't receive a response in 7 days I will select a different winner.

And now onto my request for some assistance. A couple weeks ago I premiered a new idea on the blog - Two Sides to Every Story. I have decided that I would like to keep this feature going - but I would like to solicit ideas from you guys. So I am looking for some suggestions for the subjects of the feature. It should be something that either has two sides to it (like York v. Lancaster for example) or something where their are differing opinions on a subject (such as Perkin Warbeck v. Richard, Duke of York). If you have any suggestions, just drop them in the form below - it will be easiest for me to collect the answers and access them. Thanks so much for your help in advance. Who knows, your idea could make it into the feature!

  1. Sent you a few ideas.. let me know if you use any of them =) Good luck with the project! And nope, I am not off tomorrow, so you succeeded in making me jealous! Enjoy your day!

  2. I thought of a few, but I am sure that as I read more and think more I could/would come up with more. If you sidebar-ed this (not sure if that's proper grammar), then when we thought of something, we could easily submit it to you for consideration!

  3. Marie - Thanks! I at least hope you have a good day tomorrow then.

    Allison - Thanks for the suggestion. I was thinking of doing something like that, but hadn't got to it yet. I think that is a great idea.

  4. I like the button! I can't wait to see what kind of stories you find for us!!!!

  5. Great idea Heather. Look forward to the topics you choose.


Thanks for leaving your comments! I love reading them and try to reply to all!
