Dear Mimi,
After this crazy week, Anita and I are going to vanish into the weekend and recharge. Oh how I wish we cold lose ourselves in the Musée Carnavalet de Paris. Beautiful. Thank you for visiting old Rattus Scribus. Maybe he'll put on his cape and fly us over for a visit.

Ma belle Mimi,

Oh dearest, this chaise is exactly what I am needing this WEEKEND! Oh, in my 8 year career of teaching, I have NEVER, EVER been this worn out at the beginning of the year. Having 50 kids to teach and a schedule that does not allow you to SIT or have a moment to yourself is making me ask, "How long do THEY expect us to keep this up and stay healthy?" I have laryngitis and I WELCOME this lovely photo!!!!! I am drinking tea, exercising, drawing, playing harp and tidying up my house....things I LOVE TO DO! And you my sweet friend? How are must need to put up your feet after a great début and success with the mag. I am working again on the article this weekend!

BISES, Anita

I've always wanted to visit le musée Carnavalet! Un jour, j'éspère!
Bon week-end!

Jeanne Henriques said...

Mimi..I loved seeing this. I was looking at the same chair this morning and wondering what sort of fabric I would put on it. This would be a dream come true!

Jacqueline @ HOME said...

Oh what a beautiful chaise, Mimi....just the spot for a recline with a glass of something nice and a good book.
Have a happy Sunday. XXXX

The Gossamer Tearoom said...

This is a beautiful museum. We loved it! And the courtyard was one of our favorite gardens in Paris!

Thank you again so very much for your very sweet comment. It truly was support when it was most needed.

I will be in touch again very soon.

Hugs to you, my friend,

Dearest Mimi,

By looking at those logs in the fire place we all will be staying for a while... But never mind, it looks very comfy!

Sunny greetings from Georgia,

A Tale of Two Cities said...

Love, love, love the Musée Carnavalet! I was introducing it to a friend last weekend on a stroll through the Marais, and I grieved that we could only step inside the door on that walk around.

I could spend the whole day there--reading every word!


Barb said...

Hi Mimi,

Move over please and I'll join you.
What an enchanting spot.

big hugs,

La Petite Gallery said...

I am missing my chaise lounge
I had years ago. It is such a luxury to have. Mine was very close to that one. ENJOY IT!


Unknown said...

That is stunning, Mimi! I have always had a weakness for chaise lounges! I hope you are doing wonderfully, and had a gorgeous weekend! XX!
