Sissy had re-arranged some things since the last time I was there. The dresser that the pear is on was in the dining room. It looked great there. Next time I will try to get a pic of the entire dresser.
I love how Sissy put her house together. It's a combination of mid-century modern and antiques. The dresser (with the beautiful marble top) was our Grandfather's. I remember that dresser in his bedroom. We spent so much time at my Grandparent's house it felt like home or like an extension to our home. It's so nice to see this piece in Sissy's house. It's new and nostalgic at the same time.

The goblets were Mom's. I love that Sissy uses the things that she loves. Actually uses the dishes and the goblets. I remember those goblets being displayed in Mom's dining room china cabinet. As we were growing up we were each allowed to re-arrange the lovely goblets in the china cabinet along with Mom's other treasures.
So do you see the green pear? It's made of paper. It is so cool. I've never seen anything like it. I love it. Did I mention I like Sissy's style?
For our amazing lunch, we had Beef Bourguignon. The Julia Child's recipe....made famous by the movie Julie & Julia. Well, first by the blog, then the book (Julie & Julia) and then the movie. Actually, first Julia Child's book: Mastering the Art of French Cooking... then the blog, then the book, then the movie.
I digressed a little there. My point was that it was a special meal that Sissy made look effortless...even though I know it was not effortless. And it tasted like heaven.
Hope you are having a sweet beginning to the year.
