When I found out that a favourite book of mine was being made into a movie I groaned as more often than not I am dissappointed. However when "Out of Africa" by Isak Dinesen (nom de plume fo Karen Blixen) was released I went along with trepidation and as soon as I heard Meryl Streeps beautiful voice say the first line form the book....."I had a farm in Africa, at the foot of the Ngong Hills." I was hooked. I loved it even though research has shown a few embellishments. The photography was glorious as was the music. I have lost count of the number of times I have watched it and played the CD. Robert Redford as Denys Finch-Hatton doesn't hurt either. I am a huge Robert Redford fan. So This is my Treasure today....."Out of Africa"..book, film and CD and all the pleasure they have given me.
I have finished my little Hexagon table centre and I think it has ended up looking quite sweet. Not sure what I will do with it yet. Still thinking.
