OUI, OUI, Come to Paris With Me!

Have you got a moment of spare time?  If so, I’d love for you to come to Paris with me!

We’ll visit French Patisseries, taste delicious pastries and indulge ourselves with the best chocolat!

The French go all out!  The mantle is draped in a banner made of paper, tissue, muslin, fabric strips, and bits of bling and pearls.

Jars filled with pink pretties will tempt our palette for just a little sampling.

The cupboard is filled with dishes both vintage and new just waiting for you!

Grab a plate and let the sampling begin!

And certainly we need a spot of tea to go with all those sweets!

While we sip and sample we could have a ‘sweet’ ‘conversation’ from the ‘heart’.

If we’re lucky, the conversation might get a little ‘spicy’!  lol!

This little trip might have only been pretend. . .but I ‘love’ that you came along.  What fun we had!

Hugs, and kisses to you until we meet again!

But before you go, I must show you my sweet little $5 estate sale tablecloth.  Pretty pink and pom-poms to boot. . .Oh-la-la!

So many fun ideas - it would take to much space to mention everything I loved.

You make me want to get creative right now.

Bernideen said...

I think I am on sugar overload and I mean gooood!

Shirley Hatfield said...

Oh, my! For a second I thought I was at "Dear Lizzie!" They could take some decorating tips from you. Do you have some sort of space/time machine...because I cannot for the life of me comprehend how you get so much done. I haven't done a blog post for two weeks and every little project seems to take a lifetime. You...my dear...are my hero!

I love the tall glass canisters . Layered with the candy. And Halloween and valentines are a great time to do it. Glad I found your blog. My little sis does this on her kitchen island.

Susan Clayton said...

How sweet and charming! Where you find the time? I love the jar of candy and the darling spice jars and just how everything some together. Happy Pink Saturday!

Rose L said...

My mother-in-law is French (from Paris) and she never makes anything look so sweet as you have! Her house is definitely decorated in European style, many items from France. It is so formal and "stiff."
I like your romanticized style better.

This is marvelous! I am honored that you shared at Home and Garden Thursday!

Hi, Jann! If that isn't just the cutest little tablecloth ever!!! I miss those with the pom poms!!! This really takes me back! And speaking of taking me back...those spice jars remind me of the ones my Mom had back in the 1950s! I love those...especially with the pink lids!!!

Wow...you really did it up for Valentine's Day! I love all the fun and pretty Parisian-inspired touches!
