Today I am over at Souris Mariage. The charming and artistic young woman from Good Mouse, Bad Mouse is getting married. She asked me to talk about wedding registries. Today I am saying things like, “I recommend you furnish the life you will lead. Rather than collect goods. Life is short. We have to eat, and over the years you will be putting a lot of food into your mouth. With any luck people you love will be eating with you. Maybe around a table, maybe at a kitchen counter. Buy plates for those moments.” Which is rather relevant on the eve of Thanksgiving. I will be back at Souris Mariage a week from today, to give my thoughts on just which plates, glasses, forks, and tablecloths are apt to be required. In a High WASP way, bien sur. For some reason, when it comes to household furnishings, we are fond of using whatever French we know. I’m going to blame Julia Childs.
Again, thank you all for the wonderful stories in the Rowallan giveaway. Much appreciated. I will be off tomorrow and Friday, so have a wonderful, wonderful, wonderful holiday. Back next week with more Little Black Dresses, India voyages, and possibly the High WASP position on Ralph Lauren. A bientot.
