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!

Paris Part Deux

Hope everyone had a great holiday weekend!
As promised, I thought I would show you a few more pictures from our trip, s well as some of the goodies that I brought home.  This first picture is Sacre Coeur (church of the sacred heart), and is on the highest point in Paris.  It is a very busy part of the city! We had a great lunch not far from the church, at the cute little cafe (below).  I just love how cute the restaurant looks, with the shutters and awning, and all of that great vine!
The making of a Nutella crepe.  Yum!
This charming hat shop was a few blocks from our hotel. You can get a glimpse of some of the black & white photos of Hollywood movie stars such as Robert Redford and Paul Newman in the window.  We just had to go inside and try on some neat chapeaus!

The inside of a Patisserie.  Gorgeous!
I just love these bright blue shutters!  Seems as if everyone has flower boxes in their windows.

A very cool fountain! This is right across from the Seine, and attracts alot of people!

I can't remember what church this was in!  We like to go inside all of the beautiful old churches.  The architecture is amazing!

Ok, enough pictures for today.  I promised you that I would share some of the goodies I brought back, but this post has become a bit long (!), so I will save that for another day!
 I am linking up with Frenchy over at  Le Chateau De Fleurs French Obsession Party   Be sure to check it out!

Hi Donna,
I think that Paris is the loveliest city in the world! You are so fortunate to have the opportunity to go there. Your photos are beautiful. I would love to have done in that hat shop too.
