Paris in my Heart!

Please join me  . . .

in my cozy retreat ...  where I have been crafting and watching Audrey Hepburn  movies.
The little table is a curbside treasure. I love it's chippy black paint and curved feet.
 we can dream . . .
of Paris...
and sip endless cups of strong coffee... 
from simple white china.

Le Chat Isabella says, 'A belly rub, is always appreciated'.

White roses perfume the air.
Lace and ribbon hearts.
Vintage bling.
 A wall of French typography

French Typography from The Graphics Fairy. All frames were purchased at  Dollar Tree except the largest which was  a Good Will find. 

Vintage pages from a French children's book .
 The  Valentine Tree  ..
Doves for Peace ..
Friendship Cups...
Swans symbolize  Endless Love.

Gold and Silver, old friends and New.

 White for Purity. 

   A closer look. 

I painted the votive holder and an  clean, empty bottle with white craft glue added the Fleur-de-lis then rolled it in diamond dust/ glitter.
The Fleur- de -lis was printed out from a template found online.  French Typography can be found at The Graphic Fairy.
The Eiffel Tower was made from a printout of a French original.
