Vintage linens, dogs, dark chocolate and old friends.

Please don't forget to post us about Thierry before you leave. Am hoping he is much stronger and able to get back to his normal activities. So fond of you, your family and mountain of interesting friends.
Safe travels for you and Chelsea on Thursday and enjoy your visit with all in Willows!

Merisi in Vienna

I have a thing for you, your blog, too!
If I may say so ;-)

All the other things will have to wait, this tired girl now goes to bed!
Good tidings to you and everyone out there,

I have a thing for cookbooks, French porcelain and my family. And chocolate.


Dark, dark chocolate with salt & caramel, painting, sailing in Annapolis, everything French, family & good friends, this awesome blog and you! Travel safe. xo


Like Stephanie, I have been wondering about Thierry. I hope he has found happiness. I love all things old. Old people hunt me down to ask for help in the grocery store, old linens find their way to me, old songs haunt me. I am an old soul. :)

Dark chocolate, antique transferware china, the scent and sight of beautiful roses, a really good novel to get lost in, a hug full of emotion, Chinese food, and music...always music.


Mahler! I could melt just thinking about his music. My favorites are his 4th Symphony and the Songs of a Wayfarer, sung by the great Frederica von Stade. What are yours?


A few of my favorite things: Raindrop on Roses ....

24/7 in France

Baroque style: Versailles & Louis XIV, and of course, Mediterranean sunsets.


Corey try this gingerbread version I concocted. 1 box GB mix, 2 peeled fugi apples grated, 1 handful of dried currents. Serve on chunky applesauce and top with whip cream. At christmas I make it in little bunts and top the cream with a fresh green and red berries ..... Looks like a Christmas pudding.


Thank you for your beautiful blog about Annie. It was both insightful and poetic.

Old books, old friends, a real fireplace, fresh snow (right now) fresh greens for Christmas everywhere in the house, candlelight.

Happy Christmas, Corey, to you and your beautiful family. Hug Annie for me.

La Contessa

When you're in California, be sure to try See's chocolate-covered marzipan candies. If you've never had them before, I can assure you they're pure bliss!


I do have the same thing for chocolate covered cherries too. One restriction : ONLY those "Mon Chéri" by Ferrero.

More ?
