hi guys, how’s was your weekend? for me it seemed to fly by fast but i had a little time to myself tonite and of all the things to do in the world, couldn’t wait to spend it with my blog buds! going thru the recent posts and comments again has left me feeling inspired and regenerated. so this is the second installment of a smattering of the talents who just said hello. i’m just compelled share the bounty. hope you enjoy and meet some new friends. have a great rest of a nice long night!
it’s already getting late but i wanted to post what i’ve been thinking about all day. it’s getting to visit new and old blog friends who have left recent comments. thanks guys for helping me when i was having a formatting crisis, asking about my dad (he’s totally fine)! and just shouting back when i said hi.
i got a chance to visit some of your blogs today and feel so much better for it!
i’ll add everyone to the blogroll.
if anyone ever wants to exchange blog links let me know.
in the meantime, meet some new friends with me!
ok back to work! have a great night!
hi gang! i am in and i’m out as heidi would say. i’m on reserve power and it’s midnight on the dot so it’s time to wrap it up toute de suite! just wanted to stop by and share one of the pieces i came across today. my sister in law found them in paris and gave me them to me to matte and frame for the upcoming event.
it’s one of a few original hand painted designs, this one for a wall. i love the details and the free hand of the artist, the way he make swirls and fleurs, i swoon! anyway hope you enjoy, i’m down to less than 2 mins power so bon nuit!
hi guys! how’s your day going? all is/was well here till i noticed an app i downloaded seems to have moved things around on my blog formatting. i’m just stopping to do a test post and say allo! hoping you have a great night. my grand plan includes getting some time to surf and see what everyone else has bee up to!
hey guys happy monday! i have about 60 secs before i’m heading out the door and up to west palm. lord knows i haven’t been able to get here much and the weekend totally got away from me. before another wonderful day passes i just wanted to share what was not actually the least of the weekend, but the only documented event. i guess it was my personal highlight ;p finding this box with 1930s and 40s millinery lace and flowers at the lincoln road flea. they’re still vibrant colors in silk with velvet petals and detailled centers. even some pipecleaner bees. silly but i love them and know you love stuff like this too!
anyway i have a feeling the palms are going to hold a bunch of old lady treasures like this and i want to remember this one. they were even in an old orchid box! have a great day whatever you’re doing must dash!
my mom says she feels gypped when there’s only one picture on blogs. hint hint? i usually post more than one to keep her happy but today just wanted to share these pretty fleurs that have been on my desktop all week. i think they’re luscious enough to stand alone and the perfect reason to just stop by for a hello. i hope you’re gearing up for a tres bon weekend, starting right now!
hi guys, happy tuesday. i hope you had a good day and are about to have a great night!
strange but good timing around here. i’ve been working on the flea market stuff and when i googled jules valles, and discovered that the article i wrote for the girls guide to paris has gone live. not sure how i missed that but it’s a publication i really admire so thank you to the editor, doni for the opportunity to write a flea market article for them.
it’s funny how looking back things can be so surreal. it was only a couple months ago but don’t think i would write the same article today. at the time i was determined to write the about the gritty, dark side of the market when she asked for the article. i wanted to expose the not so pretty part where you have to get dirty, dig and sleuth around. but in the end you always will uncover buried treasure. i wanted readers and passionate flea market excavators to know that over priced and polished fleas are the norm but that if you don’t mind using a little elbow grease, you can go a few streets over and shop on the DL. but it’s not a pristine scene and i don’t know what possessed me to send her these crazy pics. girls guide is such a glamorous mag that of course after i sent in the shots and text and just of the brutal cacophony of this area, i wanted to re-do it. make it pretty. but doni went ahead with it, god bless her! anyway here’s the article. if you like it say hi on the her and let her know you came by!
this is something between a scrap yard and well, it’s pretty much a scrap yard of french things
this is a closeup of the above
there’a a lot of everything
she must have thought i was nuts! anyway i hope you enjoyed the back alley stroll~ have a great nuit!
hi guys what’s happening? it’s way late but i wanted to get here before turning in and share a little of what i’m working on. starting to anyway. i’ve been meaning to go through my pics from paris and organize them for a book about the city’s flea markets. so tonight i had the time and busted in to the jules valles folder. jules is one of the sub-markets at clignancourt in and a little off he beaten path but definitely a market to be reckoned with.
it’s an affordable, two aisle covered market brimming with good loot. i was hoping to get back this month to grab a few things for the big event coming up but i just can’t see getting on another plane right now.
the as of yet undisclosed event is on march 22nd. it takes 4-6 weeks by container so chances are i could miss the boat if the stars don’t align.
but it is tempting, this little marche! i thought you may enjoy a stroll down memory lane with me~
a couple of really dramatic booths amid lots of good chaos
an abundance of textiles
tassels and linens
that aforementioned chaos
and french moderne
so maybe i won’t get back for awhile but at least there are the shots to remember it by! well, have a great night mes sweetpeas, a demain!
hi guys, how’s your brand spankin’ new year? i hope it’s off to a marvelous start!
i had to unplug after much of a muchness and am solar charged now that i’m home. even off the grid life was still whizzing by and i want it to be a memorable year that’s happening so fast. i have simple goals, along with the apple a day and a 30 seconds of yoga, i’d like to get here if only just to remember the day or a snapshot from it. i took this pic at sunrise and so much has happened since then that it seemed irrelevant since it’s almost midnight. but it’s the beginning and end of this day. tomorrow will be here soon and there’s just enough time to kick back and enjoy this night. hope you do too!
hey darlings, how’s everything? i hope you’re happily balancing between working and chilling. i’m trying to blur the line between work and play this new year. today i’m sorting through years of photos and the learning curve for iphoto is darn steep. in fact it’s is the bane of my existence but i love mac so there must be a reason for such a complicated system. the good news is that i’m discovering all sorts of pics like the one above. only thing is i have no clue where it’s from and actually never even saw it before. it was in my iphoto. see? do you happen to know who it is? he just seemed to capture my mood tonight.
anyway, i just wanted to stop by and send love from chilly nyc and wish you the happiest new year ever and all the best for 2012!
