Saturday This & That (Enjoy!)


Looking forward to this summer © Nina Buesing Corvallo

- Danielle de Lange posted some beautiful winterscapes on her blog: www.style-files.com.

- More to look at: Seth Casteel's photos of dogs swimming under water at: www.littlefriendsphoto.com.

- If you are interested in the experiences of a new mother raising her child in Paris, here is a fun read: Pamela Druckerman's Bringing Up Bébé.

- To eat (if you are in NYC): French Toast at Friend Of A Farmer. So delicious, however my all time favorite brunch treat remains L'Orange Bleue's Bricoche Perdu, but for now L'Orange is closed for renovations. Second Best: Ricotta Hotcakes at The Landing!

(More)Tea


Tea in Nonna's Kitchen :) © Nina Buesing Corvallo

My darling friends Chad & Jason just sent me a copy of Tea: An Everyday Indulgence. A fantastic gift (thank you again!). I love tea and infusions and anything to do with it. Sometimes I fantasize about having a little tea shop (maybe on Hull?!), that's how much I love tea and like to spread the gospel of tea.

Ice Floe


Europe is still in the iron grip of a deep freeze. My friend Henny sent me this amazing picture from near Hamburg Harbor of the Elbe River covered in ice floe. ©Henny
