Catch me if you can!

Time marches on. . . .
we're highlighting C on Round 4 of ABC Wednesday.

C for me always reminds me of my maiden name, Cuoio, which means leather in Italian. Perhaps there were shoemakers in our family. As leather goes, I do know there were cousins who left Italy and traveled to South America to work as gauchos on ranches there. Then there's the sugary delight with never ending versions: the 'Betty Crocker' cupcake from my favorite place, Cupcake in Minneapolis. If you'd like, I'll meet you there for lunch; Tomato Basil Soup and a baby cake, o.k.?





American Impressionist painter, Mary Cassatt with several of many paintings and drawings of children. My favorite being the last on the right because Erica used her left index finger as a binkie when she was a baby too. Sweet memories and likely some needed orthodontic work as a result!
The book that most influenced me during my tentative adolescence, The Catcher in the Rye by J.D. Salinger. While the rest of my lit class was involved with the class reading list, I kept this book in my desk and surreptitiously read it instead. Eloquent, tortured bad-boy Holden Caulfield became my James Dean and I've never quite let go of that crush.Finally, one of my favorites, Italian mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli.

Noni, what a fine post for ABC Wednesday! Very detailed, with wonderful paintings and the great Cecilia Bartoli. I really enjoy it.

Lene said...

Mmmm... I really enjoyed your cupcake while admireing your other great Cs :) Thank you :)

We share some favorites for sure. I wish I could join you for a bowl of tomato-basil soup, my favorite. Mary Cassatt has always seemed to me to be a very under-rated artist, although now she is more popular than when I first began studying art.

I love your imaginative blog heading. And I may copy the idea of white as a background color.

Aaah, I think Cecilia Bartoli is my favourite mezzo-soprano. She has a wonderful voice!

And I'd love to join you for lunch, thanks!

On behalf of the team, thanks for taking part in ABC Wednesday! :)

Is that a family photograph at the top? It's lovely.
I'd also be happy to meet you for tomato soup and a cake.

I notice from your profile that you're a fan of the Jeeves and Wooster books. Are you also a fan of the series?

I really like your blog and will now be following along.

Lots of great C words!
I, too, was a big fan of Catcher in the Rye. And I'd love to meet for lunch if I didn't live so far away. I'll have to settle for a virtual bit of a baby cake.

GREAT choices! Esp:
Mary Cassatt who's too often ignored! Aloha

Rose said...

Great choices for C! I've missed seeing your posts for awhile; thank you for visiting and reminding me to come back.

The paintings of Mary Cassatt are wonderful; I think she touched the hearts of many mothers. By the way, I have a daughter named Erika, too:)

Catcher in the Rye--such a great book! I actually included it in one of my reading classes for awhile, but too many kids today just didn't "get it." I don't know why, because so many of them seem rather lost like Holden.

Great choices ! i love Cecilia Bartoli and Mary Cassat's paintings ;
Salinger's novels are (or were) famous in France
My maiden name means "weaver", this reminds of me the character whose Sarn falled in love in Mary Webb's novel.

Nice pictures !

Julie Schuler said...

Thanks for posting the Mary Cassatt paintings. She really could make colors dance and combine into a palpable atmosphere. You almost feel like you could breath those paintings in and they would smell like the warm hair of sleepy children.

Dragonstar said...

You've a great collection of Cs here, and those paintings are gorgeous.
