i’m getting into it


HaPpY HoLiDaYs everyone! Christmas is still a ways away but I don’t know the next time I’ll be able to get here. So I just want to say how much you all have meant to me this past year. Thank you for your kindness and love, encouragement and community. I feel truly blessed to know you. Hope we can all meet in the near future and make some of the dreams we have realities! Paris in the spring anyone!?


ny’s been all drudgery all the time lately but at the flea today, i finally started to feel some christmas spirit flowing and things started to sparkle again…didn’t know if it would come this year but i think i’m gonna be cheery yet! all the best to you and yours!

love, Claudia






tiny vintage glass flowers were the icing on the cake!

    hi claudia,
    i purchased your book from you a few years ago. lately, i have been following your blog.
    i don’t know if you remember, but i emailed you, because i knew you were going to Paris, asking if you could be on the look out for a french soap mold? that’s okay, i gave up on it a while back.
    but, i love your blog, one day, i will go with you!
    i know how you feel about getting into the holidays! i put a tree and a couple of poinsetttias!
    happy new year!

    Happy New Year!

    I was so excited to see your photo of the berries and stamens, they are so beautiful. I was wondering if you could mention which flea market you saw those in, I’m thinking I might make a trip to NYC in February and I’ve started collecting vintage ribbon, stamens and such.

    Your posts are always inspiring, so thank you.
