"Caviar is to dining what a sable coat is to a girl in evening dress." -Ludwig Bemelmans

I'm so busy, I wish I have a time traveler like Hermione's. I'm reading When You Lunch With The Emperor by Ludwig Bemelmans again. I adore the man. There's a charming introduction by Andrew Goodfellow. He lived a fascinating life and I love his outlook on life. His style of art is so lovable and splendid.  

You can see his delightful murals of New York  at Bemelmans Bar at The Carlyle in New York. It's very classy.

 "The creator of the enormously popular Madeline children's book series as well as a successful artist working for The New Yorker, Vogue and Town and Country, Bemelmans transformed the bar with clever, whimsical scenes of Central Park (including picnicking rabbits). Instead of being paid for the art, Bemelmans exchanged his work for a year and a half of accommodations at The Carlyle for himself and his family." -http://www.rosewoodhotels.com/en/carlyle/dining/bemelmans_bar/

            "Ludwig the multi-talented entrepreneur, writer, artist and bon viveur whose conversational charm made him the envy of 1940s New York high society." -Andrew Goodfellow

A page from a Madeline book by Ludwig Bemelmans. This reminds me of college when the nuns at our school accompanied us.

The girl is now very active. She doesn't want to just sit anymore. She WANTS to walk and walk and walk. She wants to hold our hands while walking which we ADORE. Excellent point. Because in a few years maybe, she might not do that anymore.

What toothpaste do you use for your baby? We   Orajel for her fresh two teeth.

That's my little sweet cabbage's personality. I love this girl.
She's addicted to the nursery rhymes, she waves and stomps her foot

surrounded with the gifts from her birthday

Be grand,
