Pere LaChaise Memories on Halloween


What better time than on Halloween
to share my Cimetiere du Pere Lachaise images
from my trip to France.













Jim Morrison's grave was the most crowded.



Actually, it wasn't spooky at all...it is a huge cemetery filled with so many famous artists.
Edith Piaf, Chopin, Balzac, Jim Morrison, to name a few...
We had lunch around the corner and jumped back on the Metro.


Happy Halloween Everyone!
Halloween has many happy childhood memories for me.
What is it about a bag of candy that makes a kid so happy?
Spreading the candy out on our bedroom floor,
my sister and I would sort and trade.

A Blissful Whites Wednesday

Here in the west, it's still Wednesday...
as I rush home from my day job
to photograph my first Blissful White Wednesday!

I swing my camera around my studio and grab whatever catches my eye.
My dress form never ceases to amaze me.
She is one lucky gal, often wearing pins and necklaces from all over the world.

A hanging reminder to stay faithful.


French tins and French medals.


An always evolving desktop of vignettes.


A message for Becky
who honors a wonderful Wednesday tradition in blogland.

Merci Becky!
You just made a thousand or more women very happy!!
(Keeping in mind not all who read our blogs are bloggers themselves)

Sweet Sweet Saturday and Angel's Wings


Open the windows and let that fall breeze in!
What a beautiful fall day we are having.
I've been creating inspiration kits this morning.


Two more are in the making....it feels good to be passing on some inspiration. 


Petite gift tags ala moi.


More altered bezels for your creative soul.


**********
Before I get back to my kits, 
I have to show you my most recent obsession.


The wonderful shop of Evelyn and Rose
Proprietor: the wonderfully talented Susan.


My angel wings arrived yesterday and what a delightful package!
I purchased two sizes and love them both.
Oh, Susan, please make more of these gorgeous wings!
We adore them so much!


Blessings to all - Rhonda

White Wednesday & Clutter


I felt like de-cluttering this past weekend -
but in between rooms - I would sneak into my studio.


I tried NOT to turn on the computer
because once I do, 
I get lost...in blogs, etsy shopping...pinterest.


I finished up a few new art tags.


I poked around some French book pages.


Little de-cluttering actually took place.


I'm sure I will  de-clutter another time.


Now my work table looks like this....inspiring me for another day.


Come to think of it, I kind of like clutter.

Happy White Wednesday Mes Amies!

White Wednesday with Friends

It's in my blood...White Wednesday
I'm tired and exhausted
but I love the thrill of pulling it together.


Call me crazy, go ahead, a lot of people do...
but I have a full day each day
and yet...
I have the desire to snap away in the morning light.

It was a very good weekend for my little etsy shop.
So good, I now have to take a break
and clean up, organize again
and get ready for a new batch of listings.

Thanks to all you who continue to shop with me.
You feed my soul as I find it hard 
to wrap some of the items to ship.

New creations are in the making.
I just have to clean up the mess first.

A recent beautiful gift from a sweet friend.
This demitasse cup is now my favorite cup.
 ***********
No linky this week, just a plain ole WW post.

Enjoy the rest of your week!

Signed, the clean-up lady, Rhonda
