Tea Anyone?

 Tea is popular here in Paris.
This is a good thing for me since I’m still getting used to the very strong café.

Christofle is a good place to start…love the classic shape of this teapot

Now I’m off to find a quiet spot to work on the online magazine.
The name is Belle Inspiration - what do you think?

You know......I loved the coffee in France. So strong and flavorful.....really a wake up for the senses!(O:(O:

Can't wait for the mag.



All things nice... said...


I love tea :-) However when I am in Paris I noticed that the french perfer coffee, to my disappointment they didn't use large mugs and used very little milk on their tea. I am the total opposite, big mugs of tea, plenty of them with lots of milk :) Glad your magazine is coming on well, looking forward to seeing it

All things nice...

Jenny said...

The title is perfect. This should be fun! Thank you for the update.

Hello Mimi,
I love the Christofle silver teapot, I am enjoying a delicious cup of tea while reading your delightful blog. I have Sterling Christofle straws that I bring everywhere during the Summer months so I can enjoy a small champagne while watching the NYC ballet in Saratoga Park.
I can't wait for your magazine, I love the name...I'm so excited!!

Bonjour Mimi darling,

I have missed you so terribly, truly have. It is amazing how we all bond together and care so much for one another even though we have never met face to face. Ma chère, Lady R and I thank you for all your good wishes and for tout votre conseil excellent. I did as you said and stop from time to time to treat myself to some r and r.

Rosemary is doing much better of late and in my opinion is ready both physically and mentally for her chemo sessions. She has a long battle ahead of her, but I am certain she will prevail. I have missed so much on your blog and am dying to know where your project stands at the moment, so off I go exploring your blog. Thank you again my friend, you are a rare gem.

Bel été à toi
Love & Hugs

Dearest Mimi,
I'm so excited for you. i know how much blood, sweat and tears have gone into this project. It is looking wonderful (what we can see) and the name is superb!
There is a Beverly Sills quote I came across when I was doing a recent post.
"There are no shortcuts to any place worth going." It's so true. Just remember that when you face the next obstacle and you feel like pulling your hair out. Like I have said many times, please tell me what I can do to help you. I would love to help you in any way I can. I am very serious about that!!
Keep Calm and Carry On as they say, it's going to be WELL WORTH your labor of love!!
Have a wonderful weekend and don't work too hard!!
