Crushing on Humphrey....

Instead of socializing this evening, I opted to sing at home, watch Casablanca, and get some work done.

Bogart is so captivating. The crisp white jacket, those puppy dog eyes, his devil may care attitude, and that lover's heart..........

Morrocan sugar in my lavendar Earl Grey tea

Very poetic....

The pretty English bone china tea cup and saucer belonged to my very stylish Aunt Hazel. It was then passed down to my dear Aunt Leslie (she loved violets and pansies), and now to me. Its a busy day, but I had to take this moment to enjoy....and pay homage to these Steel Magnolias.

The tea is superbly beautiful and is from Chado Tea room, a gift from a new friend Liberty. (More on this young designer soon.) The sugar was given to me by sweet Zainab from a favorite lunch hideaway called the Casbah in Sunset Junction.

JC REPORT: Ohne Titel Trunk Show at Zainab

Los Angeles was recently graced with a visit from the creative minds behind Ohne Titel, Flora and Alexa.

Thank you Margaret Mitchell

Crestfallen, she stops and then resourcefully and determinedly finds her true direction. She was never the type to admit defeat. Ghost-like voices from her past remind her of the source of her strength in the soil of Tara. She hears her father Gerald: "Land's the only thing that matters, it's the only thing that lasts." Ashley: "Something you love better than me, though you may not know it. Tara." And Rhett: "It's from this you get your strength, the red earth of Tara." Each speech is repeated with increasing tempo and volume.

Margaret Mitchell, Pulitzer Prize-winning author, Gone With the Wind. (November 8, 1900 – August 16, 1949)
