Hi guys! Hope you had a nice weekend. Crazy high winds knocked out our power for a big chunk of it. We were grateful for our gas fireplace, but we need to buy more of these for next time! Let’s kick the week off with some fun links, starting with a grand estate on the French Riviera where Cary Grant and Grace Kelly filmed scenes for Alfred Hitchock’s romantic thriller To Catch a Thief.

The Château de la Croix-des-Gardes, called “Sanford Villa” in the film, was built in 1919.

Gonna pass on this one, though. 🙂
Anyone else excited about the “Gilmore Girls” return on Netflix? Can’t wait! I started watching the series again from the beginning (the DVDs have great behind-the-scenes features and interviews) and just found this book about the show with a foreword by the late, great Edward Herrmann (aka Richard Gilmore).
