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!

I invite you to check the entries for day one as well. Just here.

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!
