Eloisa James, HWW!

We’d like to thank our guest, Eloisa James, for visiting Word Wenches! Fabulous interview, Eloisa, and thanks also to Loretta for all the hard work.

It’s time to bestow our Word Wenches award and gift (because we Wenches are a polite lot) —

— Eloisa, we hereby declare you an Honorary Word Wench, which means you may now add HWW after your signature, should you desire (and we’re sure you will)!

— Feel free to return to Word Wenches any time to promote a new book or just to say hello, hang out, and join in the comments — we would love to see you again.

Now for a Virtual Gift straight from the Word Wenches Virtual Award Fund (which means we have no award fund but wish we did). And if we DID have a fund, this is what we would get for you:

18th_c_garters A pair of 18th century garters! These gorgeous embroidered garters are fitted with metal hooks, and embellished with the motto "Halte La, On Ne Passe Pas" ("stop there, do not pass further"). This delightful bit of costume history can be found at http://www.vintagetextile.com/new_page_80.htm –for purchase, even!

18th_c_garters_2 Eloisa, you now have the privilege of following that link to drool over the garters we WOULD have bought you if we COULD have (though we would all be tugging on those things, Macy’s basement-style). Be sure to check out all the other wonderful things on this site.

Thank you, Eloisa James, HWW, you’ve been a wonderful guest!  Enjoy your virtual garters!

xo,
The Seven Wenches and Sherrie the Whipster

  1. How lovely…thank you! I’d never seen that site before, and I love the other clothes as well. But garters…yum.
    It was great fun being here — thank you to everyone who stopped in, and particularly to the Word Wenches for their kindness in inviting me!
    and a special smooch for Loretta for her interesting interview questions. Thank you!
    Eloisa (I saw Pirates of the Caribbean III last night — those of you who’ve seen it, wouldn’t that garter look gorgeous in the last few minutes of the scene…i.e., the leg moment?)

    I saw that Saturday night, too. I hope you stayed for the bonus scene at the end of the credits. Very Romantic. 🙂
