Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links

Notes from the Weekend & a Few Lovely Links 11.12.18

WE JUST REALISED today that it is two weeks until Christmas and all the shop windows are decorated with beribboned garlands and strings of fairy lights. The centre of town has been transformed into a skating rink complete with twinkling carousel, and if you follow along with our Instagram Stories, you may have seen the enormous Christmas tree at the mercado, and all of the happy people sipping cava and mingling about on any night of the week. December is party month, we say — c’est le moment le plus merveilleux de l’année. This Thursday, we have dinner plans with new friends, and if all goes well, soon after that, we’ll hopefully be au coin du feu in a cabin in the mountains with limited wi-fi…

This week’s links include the castle hotels of Switzerland and the best inventions of 2018; gifts for your mother & grandmother, Legendary Amazon Oil and much, much more.
