Julie & Julia

The world of blogging can be overwhelming at times.  It does not come with an instruction manual.  You can pretty much write what you want.  It's just a matter of people enjoying what you write. Each day I "discover" a new blog and have a hard time pulling myself away.  Julie Powell's is one of those.  She wrote a blog about being "lost."  Her blog was turned into a book-  Julie&Julia 365 days, 524 recipes, 1 tiny apartment kitchen.  When asked about her book, Julie said:  "On the eve of my thirtieth birthday, stuck in a dead-end secretarial job, living in a hideous apartment in Long Island City, Queens, and dreading what seemed like a life of terminal mediocrity, I came up with a panicked notion - to cook through all 524 recipes of Julia Child's Mastering the Art of French Cooking, in a year, and blog about it. Julie and Julia describes my efforts to hold on to my job, marriage, and sanity while blazing a nonsensical trail toward fulfillment, with Julia leading the way." You can imagine my excitement when I saw that they were making a movie out of her book!  Here's a quick blurb on the movie. "Meryl Streep is Julia Child and Amy Adams is Julie Powell in writer-director Nora Ephron's adaptation of two bestselling memoirs: Powell's Julie & Julia and My Life in France, by Julia Child with Alex Prud'homme. Based on two true stories, Julie & Julia intertwines the lives of two women who, though separated by time and space, are both at loose ends...until they discover that with the right combination of passion, fearlessness and butter, anything is possible."

    I just watched this movie on netflix and loved it. I know I will watch it again, possibly several times. In addition to the cooking, the set design and set decorating are always fascinating to me. I would like to know if there is a way to find out the manufacturer or the name of the material used for the sheets and comforter or duvet or whatever it was for Julie’s bedroom in the apartment over the pizza restaurant.
