Lovely images for a grey day - perfect for a warm beverage and a good book.
Did I mention it's also a perfect day for baking?!
I can tell it's the Christmas season. Much to do, little time at the computer, stacks of projects to complete. Tonight I get to help at church in a group of teens, but tomorrow night shall be set aside to work through some of the projects. May even set aside a front closet shelf for "action items" such as a baby gift to be wrapped up and sent off, a few Christmas gifts to be wrapped, and a stack of books to return to their rightful owners.
How are your projects? Do you have a lot to do or are you relaxing more this season than last?
I'm a longtime fan of Bea's blog La Tartine Gourmande. Bea is a French expat who lives in Boston with her husband and her daughter Lulu. Bea's blog is full of gorgeous photography and scrumptious looking food. When she revealed her new kitchen to readers, I knew I had to post the photos here for you!
First of all, these photos are from Si's blog French by Design. Totally worth checking out. (Hi, Si!!). Secondly, how pretty is this Parisian home? I have just finished looking at more than a few blog entries of homes that are filled with matchy-matchy items. I looked at my friend and declared matching items are so not my style. Then I saw these photos of Zoe's home and all was well with the world again!
No upper cabinets. Nice.

Stumbled upon these Selby photos of Gina and Glenn's kitchen. Isn't this a well-loved, well-used airy kitchen that has all one would need to cook an amazing dinner? The whole house and grounds are gorgeous but it's the kitchen that captured my heart. Can one ever get enough glimpses into how people truly live?!
Am very excited that the weekend has arrived and that I have zero plans. It's a rare weekend with time to sleep in, putter around the house, take my time at the library, bake something yummy (not at the library), read a novel or two and maybe try some creative photo-album-ing as seen on Dos Family this week.
Finally saw The Social Network last night and really liked the movie. Curious how much is reality and how much was speculation about how it really happened. My favorite scenes were the opening dialogue between the couple and the closing scene's conversation.
Happy weekend to you! Are you doing something exciting or something more low-key?
