Versailles amazed us, particularly the gardens. They were so extensive. Everything you saw, invited you to investigate further, to experience the next gorgeous part of this huge landscape. All of these years later, you can feel the impact of the designer. It's amazing to think that our experience on that day was shaped by someone's vision so many years ago. And I do have to mention too that one of the things that started cracking me up about the photos is that because the weather was always the same (cold) I pretty much am wearing the same thing in every shot! I started saying I'm like Amelie's garden gnome! (And I bought a new scarf, just to change it up a bit, LOL)
This week got off to a shaky start but some of the goodness that's been present so far was no only The Secret World of Arrietty arriving in my mailbox for review, but also getting to interview Bridget Mendler who voices the title role of Arrietty. She was totally sweet and the interview went very well! I always get nervous for interviews, but i think this time I was pretty calm, and now I can't wait to share it with everyone
I did it! It wasn't easy but I figured out how to thread a bobbin and put it in the sewing machine. Now I am all ready to start sewing and yes, that freaks me out!
