hi guys happy monday. the day flew by and i’m well into the night shift. i’m just popping by with what we’ve been up to for the past couple days, the new products being loaded onto the site (we’re still tweaking so don’t mind the typos and shorthand ‘p
the website had taken a back seat till liz learned how to upload products and pictures last week. now her obsession is ‘shopping’ for the boutique and we’re fattening it up. i’m finally going through my vendors both here and in france. we worked on pillows today and are happy to say we added trina turk’s line among others.
not to cut it short but something weird just happened to my computer to i think it’s a good time to shut down. more manana!
hey all, happy sunday! i hope you had a great weekend. mine was full with much too much to sort through so i just wanted to stop by and share yesterday’s photo shoot. are you as obsessed with paper as i am? i completely forgot till these books finally arrived from paris. they totally inspired and couldn’t stop snapping them.
each book is handmade and unique. the paper is cottony soft in the way it’s been made for centuries.
i could eat them up!
it’s been months since i’ve shot anything so it was good to experiment with my camera. it took a bunch of books to bust it out after a very long hiatus and i’m grateful for that!
anyway it’s time for the housewives so i’m officially tuning out and shutting down early. have a bonne nuit et beaux rêves!
PS it’s a couple days later and i put them on my website here: theparisapartment.com/boutique
hey guys, how’s your week going? i’ve been laying low and reigning it in, feeling a lot better. and staying put seems to be making things happen. i’m down to a one page inbox and have this rare chance to blog. between the boring stuff i’ve been fattening up my web boutique to make use of all the ‘thrifiting’ i did west palm over the last couple weeks.
this wasn’t one of the pieces i found but it’s one from a vendor i work with, eloquence. they shop europe to bring pieces back here and even reproduce some of them. i died for some pieces their ship brought in this week!
i wish i had a place for an armoire like this. what an heirloom. i wonder whose it was?
i could eat it!
they have simpler pieces too. i’m a closet freak!
there’s just something about storage that i love. maybe cause i don’t have a real closet at the moment.
anyway i just wanted to share some of their eye candy.
funny how furniture can be as pretty as any jewel!
in other breaking news, liz now has the hang of selling on ebay, and she’s a free bird flying! i wanted to let you know that besides cleaning out her gorgeous closet,
she’s also selling furniture like the chair and stool below. if you get a chance, check her out!
finally, it’s election night. this adorable graphic was sent to me by a client who’s daughter created it. i thought it was fitting at least to acknowledge the importance of the election tonite. i’m not political or even as educated as i should be on how things work in our country, but i am grateful for life here. whatever your political convictions are, i hope our next move is to finesse this mess together to make a great change with compassion and negotiation. ok it’s time to shut down. have a great night!
ooh these images send me! as you may know it’s my big thrill to work with the magnificent talent of artists and bloggers on the net. paulette of paper nosh is one of those.
i could never say enough about her creations, they’re simply divine. these new beauties were listed in the boutique tonight. you can find them here:
well, i’m going to keep it short and sweet tonite with just a heeyyy, cause i’m leaving for san franciso tomorrow. still doing laundy and packing and it’s almost midnight. so…more from the other side, have a fab nuit!
bonjour! it’s a cinderella night pour moi, (11:55 right now) i’m a pumpkin at midnight on the dot.
it seems like it’s always the dead of night before i get to blog if even then. i miss you guys and want to blog surf more than anything. but it’s time to close up for the day.
you may know i’ve been adding to my line with bloggers’ works of art, and today have been adding stuff to the boutique. over the past day or so these all went up. i was thrilled to discover and collaborate with jenny and lauren of french market.
they create everything by hand
with such loving care. this is hand stamped
and i fell in love with their photography
everything they do is pretty
they’re just so clever!
and talented. thanks ladies for jumping in, we’re going to have fun!
i fell into a wonderland with these two muses and can’t resist their charms!
girls after my own heart. if you have a shop you can sell their items too!
on an other note, this just came in from my girl delphine groult who makes the most beautiful furniture (also by hand), in the french tradition. the finishes are particularly stunning and silky smooth.
her work is impeccable and i was thrilled to get a little eye candy before bed.
love that stool, del!
and of course this can be done in any color.
boy i could go on! renee, thank you for the new sets of cards!
noel’s books are collectors items!
and the beds! i almost forgot the beds!
last but not least is photography by mandy of alaparisienne.
hmm i didn’t realize how much went up til seeing it all together.
it’s all available in the boutique.
and now, tea and a book… sweet dreams! it’s exactly 12:00!
