Holiday House Party – Some Enchanted Evening

A group of us were invited by the lovely Marsha at Splenderosa to an imaginary holiday party. It is a dressy, formal affair at another blogger’s brand new house with “live music, carolers, a lavish buffet, champagne passed around by waiters in tuxedos” etc.…

At the Movies

I am thrilled to start off my holiday movie reviews with this classic Katharine Hepburn and Spencer Tracy romp. It is one of those movies I just never tire of!! In fact, it may very well be my favorite of the nine movies they made together!…

At the Movies

I was going to feature a different movie today that was more directly related to Thanksgiving but as we cleaned up after our turkey dinner, it was clear that this had to be the one. My daughter put her play list into the stereo system and as I stood at the sink, all the kids cleared the table, grooving to the beat as they brought the dishes through.…

An Updated Classic

I’m definitely liking the direction new editor in chief Jay Fielden is taking with Town & Country. With a stylish new design and fonts with flair, reading has never been more aesthetically pleasing. And it’s always fun to see that although there’s been updating, I still feel on the same wavelength with their inspirational spirit.…

At the Movies

Instead of focusing on a single film today, I am sharing with you an entertaining auction of a film star’s notable collection. Douglas Fairbanks Jr. was a man of many talents. Although he hadn’t intended to be an actor, considering his heritage and circumstances, it was difficult to avoid.…

At the Movies

Although I don’t officially feel in the back to school mode quite yet, I’m going to have to face the music soon since one of mine has already flown the coop. I know many of the southern schools have already begun, so I’ve chosen a movie this week to gently get us all in the mood.…

At the Movies

This week we visited Hotel California on Wednesday and the beautiful Migis Lodge in Maine yesterday. Progressive California and traditional New England together suggests one summer movie classic, continuing from my last Hayley Mills theme and that of course is The Parent Trap.…

At the Movies | The Trouble with Angels

I felt I should feature a movie about France today since yesterday was Bastille Day and on Wednesday we covered a classic French Grand Cru but I’ve had Hayley Mills on my mind for weeks. We were  recently chatting about her on twitter, then Gaye over at Little Augury mentioned her and Liz Lange cited Pollyanna as inspiration in her recent BEHIND THE Q.…
