What a sweet, toasty way to start the new year...a bonfire honeymoon the Spring. It does NOT get any better than that! The photos were wonderful and those handles are gorgeous! With your talent, Erin, I know you'll do something amazing with them (way above and beyond their intended use) that will make every ache and pain of lugging them all over creation worth it. Happy New Year to you and, of course, to you, dear Lisa!


Oh, WHAT a story! And I haven't even taken my wife to Paris yet, but when I do... I'll look out for the never-ending walkathon! When I was in Paris ten years ago, I had a fabulous time walking everywhere, and their metro is a great system! But now... could I walk that much? I don't think so!!

Thank you for a great story, and for lovely photos! A honeymoon in Paris... we haven't had ours, yet, but what better place to have it!


Sounds like you logged many a mile on this adventure. But what a place to walk! Looking forward to seeing how you ultimately use these colorful door handles. Thanks for the story!

Erin, Sorry for missing your story in January. If it hadn't been for the photo of that hot chocolate, I, too, would have been footsore. What lovely memories, a scarf a day (!), the tiles and the shared sense of enthusiasm for whatever the day might hold. And I can picture your color-filled home in one of my favorite seaside towns. Best wishes to you both.

What IS this place?

  • I’m a huge fan of stories, the kind of stories that people tell each other over coffee, on the phone, over dinner. I live to hear everything that my friends and family have to share. Card games? Charades? Bah. All of that stuff just gets in the way of the juicy part: The Stories. Come, sit here with me, and tell me what’s been going on. What have you been doing? Who have you seen? Where have you been?..... In that spirit, I’ve created The Gypsy Bonfire. I ask my authors to tell a story that you could share over a quick cup. Picture yourself sitting around a Bonfire with VERY close friends. It’s chilly, you’re cozy -maybe wrapped in a soft blanket, hands clutching a mug of steaming hot Mexican Cocoa, the creative energy is hovering just overhead. You could not be more relaxed and everyone’s sharing a story. You know… just kinda chatting……… There will be a new story on the 1st of the month or there abouts. I’ll be reminding you on my main blog. So. Join us around the Bonfire. No big deal, just a place to relax and invigorate your own stories. Get the movie going in your head. Pick out the Sound Bites from your own World. Thanks for coming by.
