All the lovely people who hosted Joan Crawford dinner parties in November made me so, so happy.  Seeing their photos and write-ups just made my year.  Love the lovely internet!  Everyone who participated went into a prize draw and one lucky person won a copy of the Cooking With Joan Crawford cookbook.  Are you on tenterhooks to find out who?!


All the names went into a hat…

and I picked one at random (I was at the British seaside, in December, hence wearing many wooly layers INSIDE a pub).

Greg!  Greg of Greece!  Congratulations Greg!  I will email you this week to find out where you would like me to send your prize.  Do you feel like you have won an Oscar?! (this by the way readers, is how Greg decorated his home for the Joan Crawford dinner party!)


A copy of the book coming your way soon Greg!  Chin-chin!

It’s so lovely that such a new reader of the blog threw themselves so wholeheartedly into the party mode!  The fact that Greg won the book gives me another opportunity of posting this picture of his Joan Crawford Crepes Suzette a second time:


and last but not least, his table decorations – ha ha!
