Marija Court... We remember you...

It is with sadness, I report the loss of Marija Court (Wife, Mother, Friend,Blogger, Editor, Author) of Holding Court Blog on Saturday, July 10th.

Marija was an inspiration, full of humor and had an amazing eye. Her musings shared how much she loved her family, friends and all things design. She is without a doubt, gone too soon.

Remember to Live. Laugh. Love. Devour every moment you have. And not let a day pass, to tell someone you love them.
My sincerest condolences to her family, she will be missed.

Sing or Swim!


Is Rihanna singing or on her way to the deep end of the pool? I pretty much support a great deal of the frocks and baudbles Rihanna and her stylist bang out. But this one... 'Not so much'.

"If you've got the chops... you don't need this frock"!

I need a man with a cool hand....

With the heat being over 100 degrees this week in New York, my fantasies have turned cold. All I can think about is wrapping my lips around something cold. Namely a silver spoon supporting a fine, fresh, well chilled Champagne granita! And if a handsome man has freezing hands for serving it to me, well I will gladly take that too!

Champagne Granita

Makes 8 cups

  • 2 1/2 cups sugar
  • 1 bottle dry champagne


  1. Fill a large bowl with ice and water. Combine sugar and 2 1/2 cups water in medium saucepan, and bring to a boil. Cook until sugar is completely dissolved. Transfer to a large bowl set over the ice bath, and cool completely.
  2. Add champagne to sugar, and stir to combine. Pour into a 9-by-13-inch pan, and place in the freezer for 30 minutes. Stir with tines of a fork, scraping up icy parts. Return to freezer, and stir every 20 minutes until mixture is frozen and texture is similar to shaved ice. Cover with plastic wrap until ready to serve.
