Next Week Or La Semaine Prochaine

On The Calendar For The Week Ahead

As those of you who know me or have read my "mini bio" in the column on the right, you know I've been a writer of fashion, design, lifestyle, decoration, and all that "light stuff" as someone once remarked. But I have also been an editor, coming up with story ideas and then asking creative, exceptional individuals to execute my nascent notions any way they would like, by applying their unique twists and talents on the themes.

With few exceptions -- when I step in in my original role -- the month of December will be filled with cadeaux from brillliant bloggers who graciously agreed to contribute to our December lifestyle "magazine".

Cette semaine is devoted to holiday decorating created just for us by extraordinary interior designers. Since we need time to absorb, learn and replicate their ideas, it seemed only logical to start the series with them.

Speaking of extraordinary interior designers, the drawing for "French Impressions" by Betty Lou Phillips, will be announced this week. If you haven't told me if you would like to be included, you have until Tuesday. Imagine having her book for Christmas? As it happens, you will find gorgeous holiday decorating ideas inside -- the gift that keeps on giving.

Hi Tish,
You have a wonderful imagination and an ability to express it through design. Add me to your drawing!

Dear Tish,
I'm really looking forward to the upcoming December cadeaux.
Would you include my name for the book drawing? Thank you.
A question. I've done some research but can't find an answer,
what is a symphony cake??? Something new, I need to know.
Happy Sunday!

Oh Tish, your invitation to draw and write is most accepted, but Ruben has been inundated with much work and has been very fatigued....I have told him to contact you. THANK YOU FOR YOUR FRIENDSHIP! Anita

Blogging has taught me that I'm definitely feature writer drone and not an editor - I'm much happier just being told what to write!

It would be so nice to be included for the opportunity to receive a lovely book to help me dream of France. I am not a blogger (yet?), just a fan who reads, laughs and is inspired by your work.

I would love to be included in the drawing for the wonderful book! I am eagerly planning my next trip to France, and will be taking French lessons beginning in January to help get ready. Thank you for your beautiful blog.

Dear Ms. Jett,

I can't see a way to respond to the comment you made in your right-hand margin ("One of my best French friends told me: "If you don't want to do something, don't tell anyone you know how to do it."), so I'll have to post, somewhat off-topic-edly, here....

Ironically enough,a neighbor came by just last week with a batch of fresh yeast rolls (she makes these for me on a regular basis). Unfortunately, she caught me when I was baking a cake. Her words were "I thought you didn't know HOW to bake..I'm going to give you the recipe and this is the LAST time you're going to get these from me."

More amusingly? There's a passage in Alice Thomas Ellis's wonderful(and very funny) novel "Fairy Tale" which a fifty-something, spoiled, beautiful, wealthy Englishwoman is described thus: "Clare was regretting her words. She had travelled lazily through life by often responding with a show of incomprehension to questions thatmight threaten her comfort by demanding a resolution. Other people, therefore, had been constrained to look after her. If she were now convicted of greater intelligence than she had previously admitted to, then much support would be withdrawn".

I like your blog/website, by the way. I just went to it after seeing your admirably concise comment on Vicki Archer's "French Essence".

This should be délicieux! Looking forward to it!

Thus far, we've been so inundated around here (college applications) that holiday decorating has consisted of one pointsettia, picked up at the local supermarket. (And we've been horribly remiss about our Hannoukiah as well - since nous fetons tout around here.
