proper stationery shops in venice, the 1st video review from san francisco and a Sighting at The Essex Street Pleasure Gardens of #howtostaysaneinacrazyworld

oh, darlings, look!


a Sighting of the book at William’s house in Whitstable!IMG_4907

we’re ever so excited because the book was Hoping to see the newly dug and laid out The Essex Street Pleasure Gardens (therein).

doesn’t it look at Home?

talking of at home – an elegant home is never without a goodly supply of chic stationery.

and we just happened to have written about such a place…….today, in fact. 


as you know who-we-are-in-RL goes to some very chic dinner parties – including This one with the British Government Minister.

which is where we met Kattie Kotok in fact (take another look at the picture – bottom right – lovely flame orange cashmere scarf).

we nudged who-we-are-in-RL at the dinner party and said, “There’s someone you must interview for Los Angeles, I’m Yours, Where Shall We Meet column!”

and so she did.

isn’t that delicious?

talking of writing – who-we-are-in-RL had a piece published in today – very nice – especially now we’re on the Other side of burnout.

well that’s lovely.

but not Quite as lovely as the The Essex Street Pleasure Gardens.

and that woman in pearls waving (who is that?)


more sightings please!

we hear that Copies are En Route to South Africa, New Zealand and France!

isn’t this all jolly exciting?

thanks to William for Today’s Sighting.


before you dash off – here’s Mr. Lanier Smith in San Francisco doing our first Video review (hope you can see this outside the USA too?)

we are feeling deeply international.
