Cure for a rainy day...


The new year has started out cold and dreary, but it has been wonderful to have an excuse to hide away and just enjoy a few simple things, like candles that smell wonderful and a good book in lovely surroundings. The book shown below was a Christmas present ~ it’s pretty fabulous, too. A great way to spend an afternoon.
After a nice long holiday break, I have to return to work tomorrow. As much as I have enjoyed the rest and lack of structure, it will be nice to get back to a routine. 
Wishing all of you a wonderful 2017...

A book list for lovers of all things French...


I came across this graphic somewhere on the Internet earlier this month and saved it because it is such a great list. Sharing because I thought some of you would enjoy it as well. (And if you know who created the graphic, please let me know so I can credit them.)
Wishing all of you a lovely day...

A pink Christmas...



I do love a bit of pink and candlelight when decorating for Christmas. And I love pairing them with metallics ~ they look so pretty with the pinks and play off the light of the candles. This is my living room this year, complete with George the Elephant and Miss Em snoozing in a favorite chair.



Wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and a wonderful holiday season...

Decorating for Christmas...




Just a few photos of the Christmas decorations in my dining room this year. I love using red in this room because it looks so nice against all the blue and gray. I hope all of you are having a wonderful holiday season.
