Tete a Tete


















When I used to pour through my log home magazines (okay - I still do!) - I loved how people created conversation areas in their open living space - a "Tete a Tete." When I looked up the definition, it states that a Tete a Tete is 1. private conversation between two persons and 2. A sofa for two, especially an s-shaped one allowing the occupants to face each other.
Hmm....I don't have the s-shaped sofa, but I think my makeshift Tete a Tete will do. So please have a seat, let me grab you a hot chocolate with marshmallows and we'll look out at the lake and discuss when we think the first snow flake will fall!

Nice cozy spot for conversation. Let it snow! I'm sure you wouldn't mind getting snowed in there.

A perfect spot for a intimate conversation....

Brandi said...

Just lovely. I can't wait to visit and have conversation with you.

Yes, it literally means "head to head," especially in the sense of putting two heads together. :)

I love the setting! So warm and inviting. I'd love to drop by for that hot chocolate! I have to warn you... I like LOTS of marshmallows!

Magoo is doing great....
his tests proved no more kidney reflux! I posted pics on Magoo's blog.

great now you've done it - you went and said the dreaded s word. Don't get me wrong I enjoy snow but they need to figure out a way to have snow with 80 degree weather. I would definitely be a happy camper then.

I am so ready for a tete a te..whatever you call it, with some hot chocolate and your view!!

OH what fun that would be!! I would love to just be able to sit and visit face to face.

Shellmo said...

Jen - you are right - I would love to be snowed in there!

Brandi - I'm waiting!

Cathouse - me too on the marshmallows!

Terri - can't wait to see yours!

Christy - whoops! pretend I didn't say snow..... :-)

Sandy - you can ride over w/ brandi!

Hey Shelley...too late...you already did say snow...no taking it back now!

I'm off for CT and NYC tomorrow, and looking at the forecast for my return...what do I see...snow showers next Tuesday for my arrival back here. Now I've been looking daily and it wasn't until you said the "S" word that it showed up in the forecast!

You owe me a hot chocolate and a serious "tete a tete" for bringing the snow to North Country!
