I have not had a Kir in so long ! Thank you for the reminder ;)Being in the middle of a terrible heat wave down here, we have been drinking Sidre, which is just a sweet bubbly cider sort of wine .. refreshing.I have big news .. coming soon ... besos. C
Yummy, either one will do! Love the stair case shot~looks wonderful.
Love Kir Royale!! And love that last picture...dreamy!! Cheers to a fabulous weekend.
Well, I see I am going to need to go get some more champagne today!!!Anon- google "antique" confit jars and you should be able to find some sources. Trust your source though, as there are many reproductions out there. If it is a reproduction you are looking for, I just saw one at Home Goods last week. Good luck!
Oh, I like the way Dan thinks. ;)♥ séciawww.petiteinsanities.blogspot.com
Yes, please!!! I adore this room. The mantle is gorgeous. Hope your weekend is going very well. XO, Pinky
Joan, Dan, and Ella: The perfect start to any weekend! Enjoy, Cindy(not just the drinks, but the entire setting!)
I love your blog and yes I too will have one. From your newest follower. Have a great weekend!
Joan, It's Saturday evening and we've just finished dinner. As I take a look through my fav blogs I can't help but stop and stick my laptop under Richard's nose to show him your spectacular home one more time. We have taken the time to really explore past postings of your home and drink in the beauty of each space. I can imagine you and Dan sitting and enjoying the history of your home, the beauty of the original space and the refurbished rooms, with a little verve music playing ....... enjoying your bevies by the fire. You've worked hard for this special home - a home that was just waiting for a couple like you to love it once again. Enjoy the beauty. Indeed....... Cheers !!
Sorry, I'll be at the Urban Cottage, drinking Bombay!Cheers!
I will take either or both!!! I love champagne! When we lived in Germany there was a man in our village who made his own that he would sell during Fasching, which is carnival time. It was absolutely delicious! Do I see sweet Ella's nose in the picture? Have a great weekend!
That does sound like the makings of a cozy, lovely weekend! Hope it was a great one for ya!
Simply Lovely! Cheers!
Hope you had a happy weekend!!
Champagne with a splash of cranberry please :)Kathy :)
