  26. Love Kir Royale!! And love that last picture...dreamy!! Cheers to a fabulous weekend.

  27. 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!

  28. Oh, I like the way Dan thinks. ;)

  32. 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 !!

  34. 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!
