good morning dear friends
another brand new day with all the hope for the future.
there was another horrifying incident in france that i can’t seem to shake and just wanted to be here and share some beauty
also wanted to say thanks to everyone’s comments the other day about the chairs.
your feedback was really helpful and i’m taking all of it to heart.
so what’s today about?
well i just fished into my pool of pics to see what popped up.
well, the one on my desktop was from the night i searched antique boutiques.
seems shopping never goes out of style…
i’ve been saving my pics using the google search now so it’s easy to keep track, maybe even easier than pinterest albeit not nearly as much fun
in any case i’m going to stick with the shopping theme considering i have to catch a plane in less than an hour.
i’m heading back to NC to meet with a furniture manufacturer, a wonderful man i met almost 10 years ago. i’ve been waiting till just the right time to collaborate and the time has come!
and i didn’t forget the giveaway…the random number for the book is. #3…liz from san diego!
please let me know you addy and i’ll send it out on friday.
well, that’s about it for me today,
hope you enjoyed a trip back in time to do a little shopping.
better run, don’t want to miss my ride!
ps here’s a link if you’d like a little more: have a great day!
bonjour! actually, wow it’s already almost midnight…where do the days go? well i’m just stopping by to say allo and share a forgotten bookmark.
so sit back and enjoy a trip this lovely little museum in paris, the musee de la vie romantique:
for me it’s bed time, bonne nuit!
allo toute le monde. i’ve had this post up and ready to go for a couple of days but never got to hit ‘publish’. i kept falling asleep and then jumping right to work in the mornings. but it’s sunday and i’m back on the grid and getting ready for a long trip starting tomorrow. i’ll be in asheville, nc at Desirant for a couple of days then it’s off to ny and nj to see my guy and family for graduations and dad’s day.
anyhoo, i’m keeping up with the bookmarks and this was a random selection from the other day: artlyriquefr.fr/Opera. not sure why i saved it then (like 4 years ago) but loved stumbling across it now.
it never ceases to amaze me how paris (and so many other places) were created out of thin air, with just an idea, paper and quill…
or pencil…no cranes or computers, just men devoted to a cause.
it’s truly worthy of awe and wonder. i love these folks just stolling by, taking it for granted over a 100 years ago
but it’s exquisite, the depth, precision and dreams that went into its creation. and who built it? they’re long forgotten…
the thousands who’ve climbed the stairs over the centuries are very fortunate to experience a piece of history.
it was probably a real marvel at the time. i bet parisians were very proud of it.
now it sits majestically as part of the landscape.
even in modern times is still grand and mysterious as ever. i ask you, could this be built today? quel feat! have a wonderful sunday~
