I Have a Crush on You

I have a big crush on this little corner of the Paris home of Giambattista Valli:

The weather here is finally getting spring-like so I plan to spend some time on a patio or two this weekend as I return to my university stomping grounds with some dear friends.

Whatever you get up to, have a great weekend!
Happy Mothers’ Day to my wonderful mum, MIL, stepmum and my sisters-in-law! xo

Let’s Go Shopping In Paris

And by shopping, I do mean pretend internet shopping. For my pretend home in France. Oh, heck, for BOTH my pretend homes in France– clearly I can’t be confined to Paris all the time, so I’ll need a place somewhere near Antibes as well.

Here is some loveliness from Caravane to add a little brightness to dark winter days here in the northern hemisphere:

 How about a new dining room table (the link for which I cannot find…) for my fabulous apartment in St Germain/Montmartre/ the 4e?  I’ll need some pretty storage to organize my bibelots in my Parisian pied a terre, so I’ll add this whimsical little bunny canister and this colourful tray to my (incredibly chic, Provençale) shopping basket while I’m perusing the wares at Petite Friture.

What would you buy if you were shopping in Paris?

French antiques? Yes, please!

Wait until you see what I have planned for these babies!

They are antique French curtain-rod brackets, brought back from les puces.
Not, alas, by me.

I found them here, one of my favourite shops.
If you have never been, next time you are in town, drop by.
It might not be the Paris flea, but I promise you won’t be disappointed.
