~I love Paris~

Hi everyone!

How was your week? 

I feel spring in the air here!  The days are getting a little longer and the sun is shinning more often. I’m so excited because spring is my favorite season of the year.

I’ve always liked Frank’s version of this song but I like it very much now because…… 

look what arrived!  

January cleaning house 028-1


January cleaning house 027-1

It was signed by Kaari Meng from the French General.   Check out her blog at the Warp and Welt.

It’s a dream come true for me.  Never in a million years would I have thought I would be planning a trip to Paris, Auty, Rome and Venice this summer.  

Beautiful paper, beautiful ribbon and also attached to the agenda was this cute little French Rooster Pin.  So adorable! ~Sigh~  If this is any indication of what’s to come it’s going to be sooooo nice!

  Alise and I will be staying in the heart of the Midi-Pyrenees at the beautiful 18th century Chateau Dumas with twelve more ladies.   The population is only 122 people, surrounded by beautiful gardens, fields of sunflowers, must I say more?

We will be going to flea markets and brocantes, master craft classes, small villages and local artisans.  Our in-house chef will be cooking three meals a day! I really could get used to this! 

Wine.  Did I say wine?   Laurent visits the chateau early in the week and offers some of the best wine and cheese from the area.  Wine is served during the evening meals.  Then we are off to Rome, Venice and Paris.     (Have I convinced you to go yet?) There may be a few openings left…check it out!

I’m sure I will be adding a more details as time goes by.

  There goes my budget for any decorating, painting, furniture reupholstering and traveling for a long time.  Oh well, they say you only live once!

Again thank you dear friends for stopping by and especially for  your encouraging comments and inspiration.   I think blogging friends are the BEST!  Now I want to see what you have been up to. 

See you soon!

Pin It now!

How exciting!!! I am so jealous. I would love to go back to Europe. I was lucky enough to get to Paris, Rome and Venice back in 2003. I hope to return someday. I just need to win the lottery. Have fun on your trip and take lots of photos. That is the one thing I regret. Didn't take near enough photos. Thanks for stopping by my blog & for taking the time to comment. I really appreciate it.

Yea! So Glad you are going. Are you going the first or second week? I'm going for my 2nd time with Kaari the second week. It will be a trip of your lifetime. Don't put too much in your suitcases on your way there, you will need all that space on the way back for your goodies!!

Thank's for your comment!
