Today, the beautiful (and talented!) actress who became a princess would have been 89 years old. Oh dear, to think that without this tragic accident she could still have been with us… As we know, for the occasion, I’m hosting the 4th edition of the Wonderful Grace Kelly Blogathon. This year, I was joined by the incredible Emily from The Flapper Dame, another huge Grace Kelly fan. Honestly, the last few days have been quite crazy so, honestly, I don’t know how I would have managed without her! If Emily was covering day 1, I’m covering day 2 today. I’ve enjoyed immensely the articles written for day one and I’m looking forward to reading the next ones!
As you submit your entry, I’ll try as fast as I can to add it here. Warning: I’m working from 3 pm to 9:3 0pm today, so if you don’t hear from me during these hours, don’t worry!
But now let’s read the lovely entries!

For my own contribution to the blogathon, I conducted a special survey among Grace Kelly’s fans via my blog Three Enchanting Ladies to know more about their admiration for her. Hope you’ll enjoy reading their answers as much as did!

I’m glad to say this blogathon has been quite a success! Actually, I’m pretty sure it’s the edition where we had the highest level of participation! Honestly, I was surprised! So, thanks a lot to all of you for your participation. Without you, we wouldn’t have a blogathon! And of course, thanks again to my co-hostess Emily!
Grace Kelly is not here with us anymore, but I’m sure she would have been honoured by all these tributes to her life and career.
Happy heavenly birthday little flower!
