from this list from Chantelle.
I was paired up with SmoochDog, and we both chose no. 11 - Your celebrity dinner party. Who would you invite?
Now, I hope it's OK to tweak with the topic a tad, as nowadays cooking/hostessing is a challenge, and to be honest the only 'celebrities' I would want to spend any time with are those fortunate enough to be guests of one of the 20th century's greatest hostesses, Lady Ottoline Morrell...
I have this book...
which is full of snapshots of Virginia and Leonard Woolf, Vanessa and Clive Bell, Duncan Grant, Wyndam Lewis, T.S. Eliot, D.H. Lawrence, Aldous Huxley, Lytton Strachey, John Maynard Keynes, Thomas Hardy, Bertrand and Dora Russell, W.H. Auden, Mark Gertler, Siegfried Sassoon, Ian Fleming, the Sackville-Wests...
Some of the greatest minds of the time all milling around these gardens, enjoying each others' company and conversation...
Truly, I cannot imagine a better way to spend a weekend!!
