Coffee Date

If we were having coffee this morning, I'd ask you what you like on your crepes. I'm getting my morning off right with some french press and Turner Classic Movies. Which is why I would also ask you if you've ever seen "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof." Now I'm not usually one for conflict in the movies, but there is something about this movie that makes me watch it everytime it comes on tv. I think it's a combination of factors; Paul Newman, Elizabeth Taylor, Burl Ives, the sensuous beauty of the south in old movies......but you know what I think it is most? The bedroom!

Look at it! Look at how lavish and airy and lovely it is...

Look at that bed...Yes please!

The curtains above the bed, the wicker, all the white....

And you know what, it's all fine in the end. Maybe that's why I like it, because it's real and it's still alright. Anyway, I suggest it if you feel like some drama, southern beauty, and classic Elizabeth.

P.S. Happy March! Spring is just around the corner......

P.P.S. I'm linking here today, stop on over!



  1. hello there! :) I am new to the virtual coffee world and just stopped in to have coffee with you! Crepes and a movie sound great right now, i have never seen that movie but I really think i should check it out, i love old movies. or classic movies :) I haven't watched one in too long so this was a good reminder. I like my crepes with anything on them! seriously, yum

  2. I've never seen that movie, but look at the fireplace! i would love one of those in our bedroom ... imagine cuddling in your bed with a fire going! oooo, sounds awesome :-)

  3. Hmmm crepes are lovely with fruit. I like them simple. One time I had breakfast in a place called the Creperie. Nothing but crepes = heaven. Ok, I'm adding that movie to my list of films I need to watch...mostly because Paul Newman & Elizabeth Taylor look like the glorified, hollywood version of me and my husband.

    Ok, it's kind of stretch, but a girl can dream. :) Glad you're blogging more!

  4. Oh Paul Newman...sigh...dreamy. Glad I read this today....I will add this to my Netflix queue for sure!

  5. i have seen that movie biut not for a really long time, i think i need to watch it again as an adult! : ) thanks for coffee!
