Surviving Thanksgiving

Just wanted to repost Ellie's Thanksgiving book since it's about that time and some may need and want it. Full of family stories, photos and recipes!

Also, thank you to everyone who has reached out over the past few months to offer their condolences. So much love to you all and Happy Thanksgiving!

  2. P.S. I had a terrible computer crash and lost your mother's emails to me. I was upset but when I started up my new computer, after a few days, they reappeared. Now that is a gift!

  4. Lovely little darling! Happy Thanksgiving to you! I'm thankful that your sweet (not sweet) adorable little mommy is no longer suffering....but man has she left a big fat cavernous void. Xoxo
    I bought the book after she died as I'm late to this party. It's delicious!

  6. Thank you Gracie! I think of your mom all the time-- how amazing and fun and intelligent she was. Reading her blog really helped me to deal with my own health issues, and she made me laugh so much. I'm so sorry she is no longer here.
    Love to you. XOXO

  10. I was so pleased to see this email today. It is lovely to be reminded of your Mom and her love of food and celebration. I reread her blog on Thanksgiving at Ralph Lauren in Paris. What a great experience it must have been. I have ordered her book and am looking forward to incorporating some of your family traditions into my Thanksgiving dinner this year. All the best to you.

  23. I have this Thanksgiving book. I actually got it out about a week ago and thought about Ellie and how much I miss seeing the blog in my email. My heart jumped when I saw the blog this time. Thank you! I miss Ellie all the time! Happy Thanksgiving, Gracie! Ellie is watching over you. Wishing you peace and love.

  25. Seeing this pop up in my email was lovely, thank you Gracie! I bought the ebook version when Ellie first published it, but thinking now I might like the print version also, as I have the print version of And So It Is. Both would be tangible memories of her... I've thought of Ellie quite a bit lately, and have especially been thinking of you and David with Thanksgiving and Christmas approaching. I hope you are both well and I wish you peace and comfort over the holidays.
    xoxo, Catherine

  27. Well somehow I got to read lots of articles on your blog. It’s amazing how interesting it is for me to visit you very often.

  28. Reading Ellie’s book is now one of my Thanksgiving rituals, and one of the many ways I love to remember her; she has that rare writer’s gift of drawing you into her experience. I remember her, too, as I move through my house each day and see the wonderful objects I bought from her shop and a few that she gave to me. We shared an appreciation of Creil Montereau Japon Monet china, and thanks to Ellie, I have a complete set for my Thanksgiving table this year – spectacular! I miss our email correspondence, sometimes about the serious things in life; but mostly about silliness – whether to make a healthy salad for lunch or just pull out the box of Cheez-Its (I loved her even more because she’d be the vote for the Cheez-Its). I’m very grateful that you’ve left the Blog up, Gracie; it’s still on my Blog list, and I still check in - I’m always finding one I missed or re-reading a favorite…and there’s Ellie again! Bless you, Gracie, and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

    XOXO / Nancy

  30. Hey Dear Grace - so often think of you and hope you are not just coping but living your life to the full - for yourself - and for your darling mother. I know Thanksgiving will be difficult but you'd better pull up an extra chair because for sure she'll be beside you. As always. As everyday. My darling late mother once said to me, "When I go, you should know I will always be there - even though you can't see me. Just because you don't see over the horizon, it doesn't mean that nothing is there." Ellie taught so many people so much - great style, cookery, humour but above all great courage. Who else could have done it that way ? Her way? great panache and a one-off for sure. Agree with the other comments about leaving the blog up. sometimes I just nip in and have a reread - its like knocking on the door of an old friend and finding them at home. please keep it there. such a fantastic aide memoire - although of course you're her most authentic legacy. Look after yourself - and that Angel by your side.

  31. I just finished her book "And So It is" I couldn't read it before now. Yes, she left a legacy to all of us:To be true to who we are - to love those who are our fast friends - to reach beyond what we don't have to what we have - to love our children uncessingly with every fiber of our being.
    Love to you, Gracie and to David and all her friends who miss her every day.

  32. Hi Gracie, I think of Ellie all the time! She taught me so much, she taught me to be bold and fearless through her stories and experiences and he really attitude. How I miss her!

  33. I'm so glad that you are continuing to Ellie's blog going. I would love to hear how you are doing, Gracie. I hope your holidays were full and love and family and good memories!

    I see the shop is closed, I can to look for a Christmas present, and would love to see it open again. I know Ellie left her "good eye" for things of beauty with you Gracie, hope it opens again soon.
    Wishing you all lovely holidays!

  34. Ellie, I think of you often and I miss your voice.

    Gracie - thank you for leaving your Mom's blog up! Her advice is wonderful, and so I often come back to re-read articles to refresh my memory on her design directives. Must adhere to the Oeuvre d'Ellie!

  35. Missing Ellie..:(

  36. Gracie, I hope you are well. It's almost been a year since your Mom passed, and I miss her "voice" (though not nearly as much as you do, I imagine). I still come back to Have Some Decorum from time to time to re-read certain helpful articles; as I'm sure you know, your Mom was just the best.

    I'm reaching out because even though I know that this is a total long shot, I (and I'm sure many others) would love it if you compiled her posts into a book and published them. I'm afraid in this internet age that her sage advice might vanish into the ether, and I do not want that to happen.

    Sincerely,
    Maggie

  37. We attended an event here this past Sunday & had an awesome experience from beginning to end. They served great food and the salad I had for dinner was delicious. The service at LA venue also was impeccable.
