bon soir cheres amis! what are you up to? it’s a change for me to be blogging at this hour (minuit)! but i have a bit on my desktop including books and magazines to review, blog about and GiVeAwaY so what better time than the present?

the first is a magazine that comes out every so often and is devoured fresh off the press. it’s the ‘where women create’ spin-off from the books.  the issue they sent me is the one below. it is so rich and full of inspiration and creativity. i could’t show more than one or two spaces because there is just so much eye candy but i’ll start with my favorite cause it reminds me of my first store and the joy that it was to really let loose in a space.

i just love her over flowing, unabashed collections of linens, furniture and tiny details.

you can feel her whimsy and i see how she couldn’t help but create in this space.  she has a sweet mix of both traditional and vintage decor. it looks like a playground!

kind of the antithesis  to jill is becki. funny, but in a way you could say the exact same things about both of them; the collections, the mix, the sweetness. the inspirational workspace.

good morning friends and happy friday. the photo above was so fascinating i had to post it. it’s the return of the mona lisa to the louvre after the nazi invasion of paris.  once they were conquered she was free be the paris we take so for granted. our muse!

i hope you don’t mind a second day posting about my trip to paris with okl. they posted a lot of information on their blog about the trip yesterday after susan’s container sale went up. since they took the time to interview me about my favorite markets, i turned into a jpeg that can be read below. for me it’s a virtual scrapbook and this is the best place to keep it cause, hey,  a blog is forever. (sort of)! hope you enjoy it!

thanks for coming by and hope you got some info and maybe a bee in your bonnet to go to paris or anywhere soon, there’s nothing like traveling. i’ll be putting my trip together for late summer and fall soon and will keep you posted on the progress. maybe i’ll close up the apartment here since i have to move and just hit the road for a couple months. after all, times they are always a changin’ and you never know what’s next. till then, have  a bon weekend!

well, i better get back to reality. it was fun reliving our trip and i hope we can do it again soon, as it was a dream come true to be there together. as you know, i love to share my sources and passion for the markets and Susan really absorbed it. she had a vision. i hope you and i can shop together sometime too! i’ll be there in september, maybe we can plan a blogger’s meet up if you’re there? something to think about. for now it’s back to work to make it happen, more soon!
