Oh, joy – the abundant crates full of sweet, little citrus fruits are finally here!
Aunt Jo & Barb’s Hungarian kiffel cookies were out of this world, as usual – no doubt, due to Grandma “Pieces” family tradition of adding vanilla ice cream to the already super buttery dough!
Recent obsession: Mark Romanek’s “never let me go” – the composition, color and light in this film kills us – as well as the ending which was a definite several tissue situation.

Tom Hooper’s The King’s Speech was a sweet and entertaining film, but to our memory, nothing is more noteworthy in it than the unbelievable beaten up and painted wall in Lionel Logue’s office with the juxtaposition of a classic gilt setee in front of it – touché to Netty Chapman for Art Direction and Judy Farr for Set Decoration – the scenes in this room are absolutely stunning!

Art and family’s traditional Aussie holiday feast was beyond fabulous – from his Smoked Ham Hock terrine with herb butter & chive vinaigrette to his Christmas Piccalilli (traditional pickled veggies – accidentally dyed a wonderful holiday shade of red with this year’s addition of hand-picked purple heirloom carrots) to his Bread & Butter Christmas Pudding – the meal and, of course the lovely company was worth traveling 26 hours in coach with two little girls!
