Somewhere in Dreamland

I've another animated classic to share with you!

A few years back I picked up a heap of vintage cartoons on DVD
(super cheap) and fell in love with Max Fleischer's classics.

We've had to take it fairly slow and easy these past two days
as Ari's had a bad cold and I've been struggling to fight one off.
So, we've been snuggled up in the comfy red velvet armchair
devouring hot chocs & cookies and watching this ↓ on repeat.

Just the thing to ward off our ills.

Hopefully we'll be well enough in the morning to 
head off on a bit of a New Year adventure...

The Max Fleisher definitive collection 
is available here from Amazon.

Season's Greetings

Mmmm.... how I do love the cookie season.
It's positively my most favourite time of year!

Do you have a sweet tooth?

Well, feast your eyes on this wonderful Silly Symphony.

But be prepared... it's sure to tantalise your taste buds!

French Modern

I absolutely LOVE this interior ↓

First published in Ameublement et Decoration Modernes

I love the beautiful shapes of Mid-Century Modern designs.

This wonderful interior is from a 1961 french design magazine.  
Can you believe it? Such a contemporary looking space!
