French Friday Giveaway and a Bon Voyage


Ooh La La this French Friday Giveaway
 is going to be a French one.....
one lucky winner will be chosen.....
leave me a comment to say you want your name in that hat......
and the winner will receive........

 A GIFT FROM PARIS
(said in Oprah's voice)

The gift could be a little treasure I find at the Paris flea market
 or a Paris boutique.

Winner to be announced Friday, April 29th

 I sure hope to post while I'm in Paris, as I'm bringing my Acer laptop (it's small). Deb and I get free wifi in our rooms.....
I hope to Skype, as I know the man of the house
will be happy to talk to me while I'm gone.




Au Revoir for now...it's a quick one day and night trip to Chicago tomorrow to meet up with family and friends and
 then up up and away Sunday night to Paris, nonstop.

French Champagne anyone?      xoxoxo Rhonda

  47. You will love Paris! Wi-Fi is widely available in chains - like McDonald's - but watch your electronics because those hotspots are also full of thieves.

    Go to the Cluny Museum and walk around the neighborhood. It is one of my favorite spots.


    Bonnes vacances!

  50. Dear Rhonda
    YOUR DREAM is about to come true!!! The anticipation over the last few weeks is half the fun - now the 'real thing' is about to happen! Just let go and let Paris do 'her' thing - You dear Rhonda will be in seventh heaven - I wish I could see your face and hear your "wows"!!!!
    The Paris Flea market will never be the same again - especially the stalls with lace!!!!
    We'll miss you, so a post from gay Paree will be wonderful.
    I'm enjoying my Champers thank you and I've crossed fingers, toes and eyes for yr Paris Giveaway!
    Take care, have fun and God bless.

The weather in France has been so good the last week or so, you probably spent every minute of every day taking in the sights, sounds and scents of Paris........ and the odd brocante or two, of course. ENJOY!!!
