the very merry month of may

bonjour mes amis! i have about 3o seconds left before having to run out the door. these were some of my favorite things from yesterday, i took 100 or more shots but only have a sec so here a a couple i hope you enjoy! this chandelier was only about 8 inches high and doesn’t even work but i love it!

i know this is random but j’adore papers

and got a couple things for myself

never used…who wouldn’t use this?

aw geez well i gotta jet…this is the market from one side of the canal st martin looking to the other

i went thru the market 3 times and it was different each time

today is open to the public so it will be all new once again

and we did get lucky at the last minute cause my clients found a pair of chairs they loved

from a lovely gentleman from lille who graciously delivered them within the hour they were purchased

cause you know we americans LOVE our instant gratification! well, it’s a start! gotta run, everyone’s waiting but you know you come first  ;p

    What a shame we are out every time you’ve phoned. We’re not gadabouting but diligently tending the backyard garden adding new plants and flowers. You called when mom was digging and I was out picking up potting soil. So nice that we have your daily blog updating us on your latest Paris escapades! Glad you always seem to squeeze in a few tidbits before you have to run.
