IT'S LEAP DAY, MON CHERIE!
 It was 32 years ago today that was supposed to be Giancarlo's due date, but my water broke the day after Christmas and after much drama, he was born on January 12th.  So a salute to Giano on what would have been his 8th Birthday!  Also, as you can tell by his outfit, Giano with his four years of French, was my adviser on the "Midnight in Paris" Party--for those pictures, just keep scrolling downward.............

MIDNIGHT IN PARIS
 Ever since seeing Woody Allen's MIDNIGHT IN PARIS last spring, I have wanted to have a  dinner party for our Dinner Crew with this theme.......

 So tonight, the party is finally a realization.  In keeping with the theme of the movie , attire for the evening can be French, Roaring Twenties, or Parisian Belle Epoch. I am the latter........

 Place cards are postcards with painted scenes of Paris and guests depicted on one side from the twenties and on the other from the Belle Epoch.  In the consideration of space, I am depicting just one scene per guest.............This is Dwight depicted in Monmartre............

 Twenties Diana near the Madeline......

 Miss Josina frolicking near the Opera......

 Adolfo at the Tour de Eiffel................

 Belle Epoch Annabelle in another view of Monmartre.............
