Jo’s Virtual Housewarming Party

This is a group blog from all of us. 

Blame it on Mercury retrograde–the planets decided to mess with the Wenches, and we've had to reschedule today's post by Candice Hern (Part III of her great series on women's fashion magazines).  So heads up:  Candice will appear this Friday. 

And today?

Well, as you know, our nomadic Wench, Jo, has moved back to England, and she'll be settling into her new house (photo below) in Whitby on October the 2nd.  So the Wenches got together and threw a virtual

Jo'sHouse

housewarming party for her.  We had so much fun today that we decided to open it up to our readers!  Feel free to let your imagination run wild.  Post your virtual housewarming gift (click on "comments" at the bottom of this post.)  While you won't be able to include pictures, you can use your fertile imaginations to describe your gift, or provide a link to a picture of the gift.

To get you started, here's what some of the Wenches (and 1 lowly administrator) have given to Jo:

Pat Rice:  An elegant, wood-paneled library and a comfy leather club chair to go in it.

Jo-Library

 

Jo-Chair

Mary Jo Putney:  Along with Pat's library, I offer this velvet cloak to keep her warm as the icy winds blow in off the North Sea. 

Jo-VelvCloak

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Anne Gracie:  I send her a walled secret garden [and gardener], so she can have a lovely wind- free place to sit in the sun and read, or snip herbs for her cooking or simply be.

Jo-Garden

 

Jo-Jackman

(That's the "gardener" on the left)

 

 

Andrea Pickens/Cara Elliott:  Jo, here's a little something for exploring the North Sea coastline. [and your own personal Horatio Hornblower to captain it]

Jo-Yacht

Jo-Hornblower

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Sherrie Holmes: a butler, a maid, and a cat. The butler will keep your household running smoothly, the maid will keep things tidy, and the cat will keep your lap warm.

Jo-Butler

Jo-Maid

Jo-Cat

Now it's your turn!  Money's no object, since these gifts are virtual.

  1. Since paranormal is hot, I’m going with her own personal ghost. One with insider knowledge of a lost treasure at the breathtakingly lovely Whitby Abbey, and the freedom to reclaim a nice casket of Saxon treasures. “What, this old thing?” she’ll say lightly “Oh, it’s been in the family for ages – shoulder clasps are sort of our signature look.”

  6. “Mercury retrograde” is polite WenchLanguage for “Candice screwed up.” I got the days wrong, thinking my blog was for Friday. *smacking forehead* Many thanks to Sherrie and the Wenches for covering for me.
    As for Jo and her new house, I think I’d better offer up a grand old Georgian tallcase clock, with moon phases and a calendar. That way she won’t do something stupid like I did today! And maybe it should be equipped with chimes that play the 1812 Overture! πŸ™‚

  11. My goodness, how lovely! Especially the gardener. πŸ™‚
    The house does come with a gardener (just every two weeks) but I doubt he’ll look quite like that.
    As for sailing the North Sea, however, I think I’ll need to practice on a boating lake before attempting that.
    Thank you, thank you.

  16. I love the ghosts! Can we put them in the library? And really, with gardeners like that, who needs to know what time it is? Lying by the sexy pool “G” and watching the cleaners at work may guarantee Jo never looks at a clock again!

  21. Is that really a picture of the house? I’m so jealous! And however did you manage sunlight? πŸ˜‰
    Well, since the house is quite large and I only see two chimneys, my housewarming gift to you is a closet full of beautiful antique quilts (still very usable), several thick down comforters and a nice big bed warmer for those oh-so-chilly English nights.
    But you have to promise to get up at some point and write!
    Candace, don’t feel bad. I’ve thought for a long time the ‘retro’ posts we sometimes get a chance to revisit here are done for the same reason. πŸ˜‰

  26. What a beautiful house! Congratulations on your move back “home!”
    Since Anne already beat me to the garden and gardener, I’ll throw in an Aston-Martin or BMW roadster (latest James Bond model,) small and swift to navigate those twisty English lanes, and Sean Connery to drive for you, since after your time in the States you may have forgotten you must go left round the roundabouts. He’ll also ferry you to the coast to meet Horatio for your sailing lessons.
    Enjoy!

  41. I would like to offer Jo a wonderful Aga stove, which has that nice feature of keeping a kettle warm. And some of those covered china mugs with the matching covers, to keep your favorite beverage warm. And perhaps a gift certificate or two -one to whatever place near or far that serves cream tea (sigh) and one to a bar or pub that serves whitebait, which we definitely don’t get on this side of the pond. Happy settling in, Jo.

    She makes everything else including homemade jams and jellies – and yorkshire pudding. of course!

  91. Hello, Jo,
    Congratulations on your new home! It is absolutely lovely.
    Gifts to you of joy in your new home and with your family and friends. Lovely scented, sudsy soaps, melt-in-your-mouth chocolates and more bubbles – i.e., more champagne (no such thing as too much).
