Hello there. Happy Friday!
How has your week been? So far, so good over here. Got my family coming in today to celebrate Grace’s upcoming 6th birthday. Can’t believe she’s turning 6! I haven’t had much time this week to edit my plethora of photos but I wanted to share a few with you today.
While walking the streets of Paris it was impossible (at least for me) to watch where I was going…it’s a bloody miracle I wasn’t run over by a mini or ran face first into a local Parisian! I did almost walk into several poles, however – but it was all worth it – my eyes were on the absolutely gorgeous architecture all around me. Doors, windows, gates, cobblestone alleys, gas lamps, scrolling ironwork. It was a visual smorgasbord and my camera couldn’t get enough…
Okay…that’s it for now but more to come. :)
Have a beautiful weekend!
Oh boy…I can’t believe it but in three short days I will be in Paris! I’m not sure I will have time to blog but I will be uploading pictures to my Curate & Love FB page and taking a thousand others to share with you when I return!
For now here are some fabulous images from the French Flea Markets…where I am actually going to be this weekend!!!
Ooooh – I can’t wait!!! I promise to bring back some gorgeous treasures for the shop and I’m pretty sure there will be no shortage of hilarious/embarrassing situations that I get myself into. I will divulge all! ;)
This truly is a dream come true…so wish me luck!
Be well, my dear readers and enjoy the first weeks of Spring!

Hello everyone! Hope you are all doing wonderfully. Don’t worry, I haven’t given up doing my art, I’ve just been putting a lot of time and energy into my Etsy shop. Sometimes I feel torn between all my interests and passions! I probably have too many irons in the fire…but hey, that’s just me, I guess. Anyway, I wanted to share with you what I’ve been up to. My studio is a complete mess from all the photos I’ve been taking for the shop…here are a few of the newest treasures I have added…
I really enjoy learning about each piece. Call me geeky but I love history and having this vintage shop has really taught me some interesting things, plus I adore photographing these beautiful objects! French antiques are really piquing my interest and I’m researching a future trip to the Parisian markets…like way in the future…hey, a girl can dream right?
Have a fabulous week!
Hello friends! Hope your weekend was lovely.
As for me…well, I’m a bit tired to say the least. I’ve been staying up into the wee hours of the night (foolishly), entranced by Photoshop yet again…
I will get a series of Paris cards done one day! Here is my second addition to the set…
Have a beautiful Tuesday.

I just got Pia Jane Bijkerk’s book Paris: Made by hand. It’s so beautiful. This small, treasure of a book, is full of beauty, inspiration and the goods of genuine French artisans. Pia’s stunning photography visually documents these amazing shops. One of the many shoots that caught my eye was from a store called Bagues. It’s famous for its decadent, sparkling chandeliers that grace the lobbies of famous hotels and celebrity homes.
So magical…I want one, s’il vous plaît.
