It’s starting to feel a little like Christmas in July around here. Charlotte Moss really did inspire Stefan of Architect Design and me to book our trip to Versailles. Since she is traveling she hasn’t heard yet that we are actually going so before she left she sent out a little package to further inspire us. It contained a set of postcards that she took at Versailles for each of us! That was beyond thoughtful of her and we will both treasure them!
As you can see, Ms. Moss could have a second career as a photographer! The photos are beautiful and make me even more excited to see Versailles for myself! Merci!
After my Bon Appetit post, I heard from one of my favorite people, Katie Levine. You might remember Katie from Domino but now she is the publicist for Bon Appetit magazine! Turns out that the August 2009 issue of Bon Appetit has a wonderful feature in honor of Julia Child! August 15th would have been her 97th birthday so they have published a party perfect menu that people all of the country will make that night in her honor! How sweet is that?! Katie was kind enough to send me a copy of the magazine along with the Mastering the Art of French Cooking! I am even more excited to get cooking and will have to plan a meal to celebrate all of these wonderfully influential and inspiring women! Merci beaucoup!
Beautiful cards – you will love Versaille and I wish I were coming too, xv.
What a delightful gift! And so thoughtful of Miss Moss!
You are going to have such a fantastic time.
What lovely stationary she uses ;0
What beautiful images. You will have a wonderful time. Enjoy!
i am going to do another reading post and include you:) thanks for sharing!!
I am planning a trip to Versailles and Paris in September. Once is not enough, I must see Versailles again as I am certain I lived there in a former life! Have a wonderful time and it was great to see your article in Canadian House & Home (I’m a Canadian).
Thank you for the time you put into every post. I thought I was going crazy when I read that post. I knew I had seen it before ….thought my inbox had pulled up an old post of yours until I re-read who the e-mail was from. Good for you for speaking up. Enjoy your trip!
Lucky girl – will be such a fun trip! I subscribe to Bon Appetit and when I saw the French menu thought it would be so fun to plan a dinner and movie night around the menu and new movie. Going to check out a sneak-peek on Monday in the meantime!
Oh, so very envious!
Wow – what a wonderful and thoughtful gift.
