More Paris!! Window Shopping!! Creations and Freebies!!

Hello Friends!

Well, clearly I can't be trusted.
In my last post I promised to post more Paris photos
in a few days...

And it's been a bit more than a few days!!

But here I am!

I thought it would be fun to do a little
window shopping in Paris.
Which in French is called lèche-vitrines.
Which literally translates to "window licking" :D

Let's start with something yummy:

Look at this cute bridal shoppe window with mini wedding dresses: 

Somehow my I-phone slipped into sepia mode,
but I think it suits these wedding dresses.

 How cute are these I-phone cases:

Art gallery window with mosaics:


Time for a treat:
Baccarat crystal vase with giant paper flowers:

Pierre Frey fabulous fabrics:

Love the look of these falling stars:

This store was filled to the brim with KITTY handbags:


The sweet thing about Ladurée is that there are multiple locations but each shoppe's
windows are decorated differently:


Another gallery window:

My new favorite shoppe in Paris, Mathilde M. :

 Hmmm, this warrants a closer look:

 Okay, must go inside this one:

 What a beautiful shoppe, 
everything is shades of gray and white
with vintage images abound!
OK, time for a little something:

Aah, yes.
Love, love, love sidewalk cafés!

Time to share a few creations of mine:

Might as well stay in French mode.
I participated in blissfulART's August "I love Paris" swap,
which was a card and ATC/tag swap.

Paris themed ATC:

The July swap theme was Red, White and Blue. French colors!
I created this tag and card inspired by French General's fabrics:

 For some reason the colors are off in this next picture,
and the contrast is very sharp here
but much softer in person:

Ooooh, just one more little shoppe!
Wouldn't you just love to pop in here the next time
you had a craving for a macaron or sorbet:

OK, some Paris freebies:

Be still my heart! Oh, how I would have loved that Pierre Frey fabric and couldn't have left Paris without that marmelade gypsy handbag! Such wonderful spots and your photos make me long to visit once again! Merci! (And I do love your swap cards!)
