French Blue

The color
 French Blue
  always INSPIRES me & makes me SMILE~
I just found this website I want to share with you called
Different artist use the color
French Blue
 to make the most Beautiful glass beads I have ever seen!

Julie Fountian writes about her creation above:
 
"French Blue is significantly darker than regular Periwinkle and it’s much better with silver wire. I can't use Periwinkle with silver wire as it fumes too badly, no problem with French Blue."
 
       
Laura Sparling wrote about her beauties above:
 
"I decided to make a set of beads out of plain, un-encased Effetre Turquoise and then I  decorated them with some fine scrolly stringerwork in CiM
French Blue." 

 
What color in your life inspires you the very MOST??
 
Big Hugs

Paris is Christmas!

Ohhhhhhhhhh....
Just when I said to myself
 "I am so happy & completley content"
knowing this because 
 I just returned home with my sweet husband from our trip to Paris,
feeling warm & full of everything beautiful~
I am getting settled back to work, my home & my life.
BUT
I have a sudden urge to turn right around and be back in
 Paris for Christmas!
Because 
Paris is Chirstmas!!  
A soul that is deep, as deep as Love. 
 So anyway....
I just took these pictures...
but viewing them now makes me want 
 a bottle of
Annick Goutal
for Christmas!!
So I think I'll sneak over to shop at 
French Essence
HERE 
~for moi~
 
 
Happy Christmas Everybody!
 
It's time to put our imaginary wings on,
fly high & away to a winter wonderland,
to a place where 
"Diamonds are in the Sky".
 HERE~

Always Chanel

There is nothing like walking into
at
31 rue Cambon in Paris, France! 
Especially this time of year with the holidays
knocking just around the corner~
Paris
has the only Chanel that will adorn each package
 with their signature
~white camellia~
after each one is slowing and carefully handwrapped.
Once through the big glass doors lined with gold,
you will be treated like a Queen!
One for yourself
&
Always Chanel
 for those special little women that you love!
~
 
I have missed you all so much! 
I am sorry I have been away for so long...
you probally thought I was lost in the woods....
I am happy & doing very good.
  I think of you everyday!
 There is always some kind magique stirring in my head
 I want to share with you~
 but  
I am time managing my life finally, and it feels So Good!!!   
 
XO's
