a huge paper heart

I saw Julie & Julia the other night and here's how I felt about it:


I really enjoyed the whole film, but the parts with Julia and Paul Child I lovedStreet markets, beautiful cars, tailored below-the-knee skirt suits, patterned silk ties, dinner parties, powder rooms, train stations, mid-century modern fabrics. Oh my gosh.

Stanley Tucci (as Paul Child) is so dapper and supportive in this film.

And there's one lady who shows up really late in the movie...Mavis? Avis de Voto, played by Deborah Rush. She's in the movie for about 5 minutes, but she wears the  best thick black framed glasses and plaid pants and pours what I imagine to be a stiff mid-afternoon drink. 

I love you, Deborah Rush as Avis de Voto.
And I love your chair.
