Just discovered your gorgeous blog! Love the photography and the magazine.

I blog about France (mainly Provence), books, house, perfume, and anything else that makes life lovely.

Oh, my beautiful sister in law; I tell you, my husband's family is PACKED WITH GENIUS and talents. I am so behind...I am barely holding it together, but I so appreciate your visit Mimi and one day, one day again, I shall partake of this opportunity to share my passions. Our two room addition is requiring my attention today, but again, my camera cannot capture my mind's eye and vision for these rooms. THANK YOU for the love, you are a wonderful example of someone who makes that effort DAILY to love in the sense of the VERB....merci ma chère! Anita

Hi Mimi:

The next issue looks as beautiful as the past ones. I think it's obvious that there is a whole world of women who love the beautiful things of life and your pages capture that. I am doing a victorian antique show in 2 weeks and will try to get some photos... it's always wonderful.

Happy V Day!
