Enchanted Revelries is Alive and Well!

Don't faint!
Yes, it's me! I've finally found my way back to Bloglandia after a wild and crazy ride of an autumn! I've missed all my blog friends - and I thank each and every one of you who sent me private messages, expressing concern.

Actually, much like Alice, I fell through a hole in the ground. Unfortunately, my destination wasn't quite so exotic and enchanting. I ended up taking four courses at university this fall (one of the perks of a professor-spouse is free schooling!), and have been completely overwhelmed. However, three months, and a couple reams of paper and boxes of ink jet inks, and I'm through! I think I'm only taking two classes next Spring ... I learned my lesson!

This Spring I intend to lay back and enjoy myself a bit more ... and get back to some serious blogging - isn't that what really matters in the world?!

I directed two one-person, one-act plays this autumn. Both plays by Jane Martin, "Twirler" and "Cul de Sac" were very well received - and were chosen by ACTF (Kennedy Center College Theatre Festival) to participate in the New York showcase production in May - how fun is that?! Here are my two fantabulous actresses - aren't they adorable?! ... and such very focused and dedicated craftsmen.

Oh, yes! Had I shown you the photos of the remodeled foyer in the attelier before I took my hiatus from Bloglandia?
I like to believe I live as Marie Antoinette would have lived if she had money. (Great line stolen directly from Joan Rivers!)
We decided to have the entrance hall redone at the same time ... I like a home-y warm lived-in feeling - don't you? So important to the greeting of guests into the home - of course, there must be the space to get them and their servants in and out of the weather quickly, so size is still of utmost importance.
Next, we'll be working on the la galeri and the pièce de déjeuner de famille ... you see, our work is never done.

Oh - I'm posting this for my friend Ingrid at Fashion is My Muse simply because I've been saving it for her ... and I've been wanting to show it to her! Tres chic, no?
Okay, I'll let you off easy today ... no marathon post to wet my toes on my first day back. It's been a couple of months since I've hit the Pink Saturday route - so I'm on my way to Beverly's to check out the fanciful stuff and this week's participants. Hopefully, I'll find some uber-fab pink holiday goodies at which to cheer!

It's wonderful to be back - thank you so much for being patient with me and returning to the Revelries to find a little enchantment! Until next time ... go make something beautiful!
