To all our friends and family far and wide, Happy Thanksgiving!

We were surrounded by friends and family here in Paris this weekend for a Franco-American Thanksgiving Feast.  I’m never happier than when my house is full of people I love, food, and booze. Here are some pics of the look:

Well, it’s that time again!  I’ve started the countdown to our annual Paris Thanksgiving event, which is always super lavish and always one of the happiest days of the year.  Our travel schedules have pushed our date forward a week, and this Saturday a fine turkey will meet its destiny here in the 10th arrondissement.  I was looking back at last year’s pics as I am considering the new look for this year…Check it out here

Stay tuned for the full story! I’m off to start the cranberry sauce…

On a recent trip to Philadelphia (the greatest American city), I made a stop into the amazing store/gallery Art in the Age of Mechanical Reproduction on N 3rd street in Old City.  They were showing a series of incredible watercolor paintings by the local artist, Reverend Michael Alan…They reminded me of the amazing Frakturs by the Pennsylvania Dutch in the Winthertur Museum’s collection I had just seen the day before.  I love the poetic rendering of neo-classical Americana.  These paintings really capture the chic American aesthetic of Philadelphia.

Today, two arrived from Philly to Paris. Merci Rev Michael!

Check out his website to see all the amazing things he is doing:

The note is as beautiful as the paintings themselves!
