the art of the heirloom

Bonjour and happy holidays! It’s officially deep December and I’m sure we’re all in the middle of holiday preparations of baking and wrapping (or we’ll be starting any minute now…)

Over here it’s been a busy few months getting everything back in order after a small hiatus. We’ve restructured with the help of great friends and family, and are back up after a lot of hard work. truth is it’s a lot more fun to work with people and letting that happen has been the ultimate blessing. the best part is that we’ve got a sweet collection from the paris on the website and for the moment, i get to enjoy these little gems in my home. i guess the major shift has been that our focus has shifted from just buying little do-dads to honing in on the real treasure hunting that can done at the Paris flea markets. Now i’m looking for pieces that are part of history. i was asked to write an article about it for a good friend and colleague, Mimi Bleu who lives in paris and has created an online magazine, Belle Inspiration which is a beautiful venue for all things authentically french. she let me share the full article below so i’ll stop writing and you’ll see what i mean…

well… there’s a lot more to say on the subject but that will have to be another article i suppose…

thank you again, mimi for letting me share this! if you’re interested in checking out the entire magazine or subscribing, take a look at her site, www.belleinspiration.com.

and now, maybe i’ll try my hand at baking some cookies! a tout alors!
