Bon Jour Mon Amis!
One night we had the most amazing cheese fondue at a cute little restaurant we'd been to several times before. We'd never had fondue before, and this was incredible! And rich! They served it with chunks of bread, thinly sliced ham ("jambon"), and roasted potatoes ("pomme de terre"). It was just too good!
all we did was eat........We climbed the Arc de Triump one day. That's alot of climbing! The view from the top is amazing! This is what the traffic looks like down around the Arc! How crazy is that?! There are no marked lane lines, so it is basically a free for all. And they drive fast. Very fast! Here's another view from the top.
One day we took a train about 1/2 hour outside of Paris to Chateau de Chantilly. Can you imagine living in this??!!
More pretty flowers at a market.
kill me if he knew that I posted this picture!! He saw this apron in a shop and just had to try it on!!
Thanks for letting me share some of our pictures! I will share more with you later this week, including some of the goodies that I bought. Our suitcases were really full! We had a wonderful time, and have lots of great memories, but it feels so good to be back home to enjoy some of the things I missed: curling up on the couch at night with our cute little dog, cream in my coffee this morning (they never serve cream, only milk!), seeing all my flowers in bloom, our quiet back yard & birds, our comfy bed, and hubbies anti-snore pillow (enough said about the last one!!).

Welcome to my blog!
Thanks so much for stopping by! I believe that everyone can have a beautiful home without spending a fortune! One of my favorite things to do is find creative ways to re-purpose things I already have on hand, or have picked up at yard sales and thrift stores. Join me as I share with you some of my favorite ideas for crafting and decorating, as well as travel adventures, and fun things that I pick up on my treasure hunts! Much of my work is influenced by my love all things French, nature, and of course shabby chic! I have gotten so many creative ideas from you very talented bloggers out there, and I hope that I can be an inspiration to you as well!
