at the moment...
...my snugly sparkly slippers.
( i just realized...Holland clipped Grampa's flashlight
to the table. you may not have noticed...
...it's always the real deal here on 34.)
i was up with Mr D this morning...3:45am.
i sipped some fresh coffee, and sent a note to The French Basketeer.
thank goodness, she shared a post! she is safe, in Paris.
you may take yesterday's walk with her here.
:: safe travels, Andrea. ::
oh how i love the "L" in Laduree!
Mr D headed off to work early.
our friends are hosting a Russian Christmas party at two.
the event was move up as the Seahawks play at five.
the Christmas tree stood where the little,
earthy, stripy chair vignette now plays.
it's dark outside.
i am moving and grooving.
dusting and vacuuming.
minutes ago i finished the arrangement of a wine and dessert bar.
i did not pack the frosted winter artichokes...
January is our favorite month for cooking artichokes.
we smother them with butter and pair them with a fresh baguette and a BIG RED.
( always...served on a Winter Saturday night stay in! )
...tear out pages of French onion soup and a chicken pot pie framed in pastry puffs
are left out on the table to add charm and feed inspiration.
J a n u a r y is my after party called...
...another helping of comfort and joy!
