Squeezing in Some Time

I'm shopping, packing and getting ready for a trip to visit with family & friends.
The man and pup will be left on their own at home,
as this trip to Chicago seems to be turning into an all girl trip.
My poor brother, he will be surrounded by crazy women!
As I cleaned up my studio work table, 
I eyed some of the next pieces to be listed in my shops when I return.
Also, I haven't forgotten about French Friday Giveaway.
I have the giveaway all planned for Friday, even though I will be in the air.
As I cross things off my list to do....
I wanted to take this moment to share with you.
This weekend is coming to an end,
I am thankful I remained focused and will hopefully
be prepared for my trip home next week.
Heading to Chicago is so very exciting to me.
Family and friends getting together.
We gals plan to hit every Flea Market we can find.
Making my treasure hunts part of the trip, I always do.
See you on Friday!

Oui Oui French Flea Market Finds

It's a wonderful world when sellers scour 
the French flea markets and give people like
me a chance to relive my trip to France.
It's not like my carry-on bag wasn't heavy enough....
I was heavy...but you just know you left so much behind.
So when wonderful shops give us a chance to buy
these French treasures, it makes this gal extremely grateful.
French shops on Etsy to French sellers online.
One seller said to me, I cannot wait to see what you do with these.
Well, for now, I'm just simply adoring them.
Then one day, I might have to let it day.
A small key to happiness.
Simple French finds.

A Soft Spring Evening

 Rushing around all day
between work and home
Finally home to a soft spring evening
and a mailbox full of findings that delight.
 I had been searching for a display stand like this.
You can find it here
 And then my sweet man hands me these petite roses
cut from our yard and all is well.
The sun is setting and another day is around the corner.
Enjoying the quiet of a sweet and soft spring evening.
Hope you are too.

Collecting Bling on a Blissful White Wednesday

I prefer the word collect
over "hoard", don't you?
 So when one collects,
one needs items to display the collections.
 Found - one French themed jewelry display dress form
while shopping awhile back.
As it became layered with many vintage necklaces and bracelets,
I actually set it aside and forgot these pieces are to be worn and used.
 Getting ready to create with some of them soon. 
I hope your week is going well.
I am feeling so much better and thank you all for your well wishes.
Linking up with Becky at Timewashed

Thanks for stopping by.
Hope to see you on French Friday GiveAway!!
