When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly gaze, for the holidays, you can't beat home sweet home! -- "Home for the Holidays"
We love to travel to Paris in September, after the summer heat but before what Hemingway called the bad weather that "would come in one day when the fall was over." When we return home from Paris, the change of seasons is usually underway here also. Autumn is now in full swing in Wisconsin, with orange and yellow leaves and crisp, cool days. Our hearts and minds turn to the coming holiday season. Some long for the coziness of a wood burning stove, others for a snowshoe hike after fresh snowfall, or reading a good book next to a roaring fireplace, baking your grandmother's banana nut bread, the coming of Thanksgiving and -- not long after that -- Old Man Winter. It is especially this time of year that we may long for comfort and coziness the most!
The Holiday Home", the second of our 2014 "Les Trois Fêtes" year-end holiday festivals -- The Feasting! We'll have tons of home decorations for the holiday season, including Christmas, as well as treasures and gift ideas from our most recent buying trip to Paris. We want you to feel as though you can come and stay as long as you please, as if you are being hugged by beauty and find happiness around every corner. And maybe you will find a little something for your precious, cozy home.
A special note: For Nuit Blanche on Thursday, Nov. 6 from 5pm-8pm, we'll be featuring two very special guests in the lobby!
No matter how far away you roam . . . there's no place like home for the holidays!
