A French Romantic Collection

 Hoping something good would be born from my studio spring cleaning
I pulled out my shabby and chippy jewelry boxes
 Filled them with treasures
 Two more are in the making
Next I glanced at the toile fabric that needed to be shared

and created these fabric covered books
Merci for stopping in today!

Ribbon & Rust

 I am sorting, organizing and straightening
the studio this week
 
As usual, I am finding pieces I set aside to finish one day
 I have been working on this locket for a year,
I believe it is finally finished.
Soft greys
Linen and cotton ribbons
Tarnished and rusted lockets
I am always thankful for your visits

French Soaps in a Wire Soap Basket

A vintage French wire soap basket
was just what I needed to hold my French soaps

As I opened my order from Vintageweave a couple of weeks ago....
a beautiful scent arose from the tissue and box...
the box was re-used from a shipment from France
it held the Extra Pure Olive Lavande candles
sigh...intoxicating

Lucky for moi, I was very familiar with this soap and candle company
Often you can find the large bottled liquid soaps in retail stores
I instantly found their USA website
and ordered the candle, soaps and lotions

Note to self: happiness arrives when you least expect it

Try a little French happiness,
you will not be disappointed
