Signs of spring: daffodils in a favourite 1970s opalescent juice pitcher.
Many things for which to be grateful this Friday. I had email from Heidi, one of my best friends from New York days. We'd lost touch through our many moves. Thanks to the Internet, she found me through my blog!
Heidi has a fairly common last name and I'd tried to locate her, to no avail. I'm so pleased we've reconnected! Heidi is one of my favourite people; we've shared many an adventure.
The divine Caty sent me a wonderful message in Spanish and I could read it without getting out my Spanish dictionary! I also had email from a man in Los Angeles who purchased a rare Arts and Crafts piano at Liberty of London, in part due to my photograph of the piano.
For lunch I had a delicious chevre et noix baguette from Le Grenier a Pain, an award-winning local boulangerie.
I received invitations to my favourite brocante at Chatou, just outside Paris.
I found this mignon little wooden box "To me," at my friend Julie's antique shop Agape. It's painted black, although the inside is a bright Holli pink.
And at last the missing Amazon.co.uk order arrived with Patry Francis's book! Holding it in my hands, I felt almost as excited as Patry must have when she saw the first copy. After getting to know the charming and talented Patry in the last year through her blog Simply Wait and the Third Day Book Club, I am thrilled to receive her book. Yes, this is what I'll be doing late into the night this weekend - reading "The Liar's Diary." Hope you have an enjoyable weekend planned!
