A Little Movie, a Little Berry and a Lotta Saddness...

 Gentle Friends, last night I pulled the first of the wrapped films for Christmas... what I pulled ...


... it's a super way to start off the season as I find this and Barbara's other Christmas film "Remember the Night" - both top of the heap fun Christmas viewing in my book!

I had quite a few questions about one of the pies we had... the Marionberry Pie.  The berry was the question as most folks have never heard of them. The berry comes from the northwest and was developed in 1956 at Oregon State in Corvallis.  It is a cross between Chehalem blackberry and an Olalliberry.. is a very sour-sweet berry and just delicious.  The pie comes from a Lee Farms in Tualatin  near Portland called

I received an email today from Sajou Paris.... that lovely store will be closing its doors.  It's very sad for me as it was a store I always got to whenever I was in Paris... bright and colorful and just packed with fun stitching things.  Now when in Paris I'll have to head over to the Bon Marche as there is a Sajou area there on the 1st Floor.

  1. Saw that movie last year and it was good! We just watched The Shop Around the Corner for the second year in a row. Really sweet. I haven’t been to Paris yet but it’s on my list!!!! Sorry that your store closed.

  4. Oh dear. I'll most likely never get to Paris, but I hope when this virus crap is straightened out they are able to reopen the shop. At least there will still be online orders?

  5. That looks like a great movie choice! Sorry to hear about the shop closing. So many small businesses have suffered this year!

  7. So are Sajou ceasing to offer goods entirely? đŸ˜±đŸ˜­ Or is it simply that they will not maintain their own self-run retail stores, but will supply other retailers, such as the one you mentioned?
