Some Scenes From The Weekend...



before the (second) feast...








Oh friends we ate (and ate and ate). But it was good...totally worth it even. (I never feel too bad about "the eating" when the food is really excellent, and in this case, it was.)

In addition to the food marathon, we played lots of UNO, slept-late, hung out with friends and just generally futzed about, which was a nice contrast to the hectic few days leading up to the holiday. I also finally watched the excellent Bill Cunningham documentary. (I know I'm late to the game here.) He is just an amazing person: passionate, immensely talented, exceedingly humble... The movie is a must-see, even if you have no interest in fashion (I watched it with Bryan and my dad, neither of which are particularly sartorially inclined, and they both loved it), as it inspires your best self -- always a good thing. It was a highlight of my weekend for sure.

Bill Cunningham and cranberries. It really doesn't get better than that!

Loved the Bill Cunningham movie too, though it was a little sad, and I didn't expect that! I kind of want to see it again. Really feel like watching lots of movies right now. Tis the season or something. :)

I found the Bill Cunningham documentary so moving and touching, and like you, recommend it to everyone, even those not interested in fashion. What an amazing character, and just so filled with joy at what he does, it gives me goosebumps just remembering it all.

Your table scene photos are always so luminous and beautiful, mine end up such a mess. The reds and whites are gorgeous. Another uplifting doco (this time about art) is Herb and Dorothy, a postal worker and a librarian, two delightful collectors, who amassed one of the most important collections in the US.
