Bonne Fête Tout le Monde!



I dedicate the first song to all of you.

We are having a restful, cozy and magical Thanksgiving chez nous this year in our corner of the world. I will be baking bread and soon our kitchen will be filled with the wonderful aroma of my favorite of French breads: brioche.



As I meander back to the cottage from the enchanted forest picking wild mushrooms for our mushroom and roasted chestnut soup





I begin to set my table for the celebration of Action de Grâce....



Ruben and I will be alone this year, but we shall raise our glasses in Thanksgiving for our wonderful families and friends



for whom I am so grateful. I thank God for each and everyone of you!

Bonne Fête mes amies and I will be back this weekend to start the Christmas holiday season!

Oh! And a quick pink update...many thanks to everyone who gave me some suggestions for my dressing table; even though the photo is not the best






I trust that you can imagine how a white wash and some gold embellishment made the difference! Dreams can really come true when you have the help of dear friends!

A bientôt, Anita

Dearest Anita, Enjoy your Thanksgiving with a celebration for two, something we should all experience. Some years multitudes and others solitude. Thanks for your kind comments and visiting. I have to say I enjoy our new relationship.

I think the finish looks great! I love the fluer e lis on it!!!
And we can dream "pink dreams" together!~
Have a beautiful turkey day~I will be spending time with my husband and kids this year. We didn't make any travel plans, but hopefully will catch up with family in the Spring.
I'm going to be in school all weeek, except for Thursday, so there is no resting for me. :(
But, I'll be a week closer to graduating!!
Love & hugs!!!

Dearest Anita!

We will miss you at our Thanksgiving table, but our hearts and thoughts will be with you both. Mr. B made me laugh today with his post! I just might become a vegetarian now. I love the finish you chose for your vanity. It looks wonderful and the highlighting with the gold is très jolie!

Much Love,
Nancy

Bonour Anita! I am feeling very French today inspired by your post! I also watched A Very Long Engagement with Audrey Tautou in French with English subtitles. I loved the costuming so 1920s.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving dear friend, I raise a glass of wine to you and Ruben!

How cozy and wonderful as the two of you sit and dine and ponder the love that surrounds you. Through your home, around the corner, down the street and back again, love is radiated from your lives. Two old souls who tend to attract old souls. Be blessed. Thanking God and his amazing grace we found each other.

BonjourRomance said...

Bonjour! Wishing you a very Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks for stopping by and leaving your sweet comments. I've been living in Paris for three years now and am in the process of shipping some of my personal things over to France. I am ashamed to admit it - my francais leaves much to be desired but I am working on it! I believe you teach French. My French honey speaks English wonderfully - perhaps that is the problem...haha! I WILL get better!

Charli and me said...

Good evening Anita, Your dressing table turned out so beautiful. It is very nice indeed. Oh there is nothing quite like fresh baked bread. Yummy and your turkey sounds wonderful. Thank you so much for all the lovely comments you leave on my blog. Thank you for your concern about our dear little girl. She is back to her old tricks again and is being a little hooligan LOL I hope you and your hubby have a wonderful Thanksgiving ♥ Blessings to you both from Charli and me :>)

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Anita! I am having my own Thanksgiving, as I am grateful to have met you and all my wonderful blogfriends! Mmm I think I have to be thankful for that every day!
Thank you for your sweet comment on my first small bear! It was so much fun to make him and to get compliments is the cherry on the pie.
I love this post again, thanks for taking us to the most beautiful France has to offer. I love your own vanity too, it turned out gorgeous. Have a great day today, enjoy! See you again on Saturday!

Bonjour mon amie!

Your dressing table turned out fabulous! It looks like it was taken out of a french chateau and put in a Paris flea market just waiting for you!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and Ruben! I'm so blessed to have met you both in this big world!!

Bisous, Sherry

Chère Anita,
When I came back here on Monday with my new bear, my daughter and her friend where having tea and we all agreed that this bear was a boy, a Max or a Boris, we are not sure yet.
After that I discovered that Marja had put a small gift in my bag: she gave me the bear she made, though she wanted me to keep that silent (I think I can write it here, this secret will be safe with you). I was so overwhelmed that I still have to think how to name the couple. I am thinking of Boris and Rose. Rose after Marja's trademark: Rosabear. Did you visit her blog already as she makes such cute bears and rabbits. Have a great day Anita. It's so good to feel your warmth and sympathy up here while it is raining outside!

Tristan Robin Blakeman said...

Your meal looks/sounds amazing - and your dressing table turned out marvelously!

Happy, happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!

Oh Sweet Anita....

Your little dressing table came out perfectly....I LOVE it...

And the photos are sooo lovely. I've never had roasted chestnut soup.... :-) One of these days I'll have to give it a try. And, I LOVE Brioche.....I make bread, but it's just the standard 'ol yeast bread.....

Hope your Thanksgiving was perfect.

Huggies Dear One....
