Paris! Freebies!

Hello Friends!

OK, just a few tiny more pictures of Paris,
and then we'll move on!  :)

I found another pic I had taken in my fave Mathilde M. boutique:
 Here at Chez Odette you can get mini-cream puffs in several different flavors,

each represented by it's own adorable vintage French girl:

The beautiful fountain in the beautiful Jardin du Luxembourg
(Luxembourg Gardens):

A sentimental picture...I lived in this building once upon a time!
 It was so fun to walk around the old neighborhood!

Beautiful fountain:
 Notre Dame on a beautiful summer day:
 Well, this looks a lot like Anthropologie:

 But it's not!!  Just a lovely French housewares boutique!

The beautiful department store, Galeries Lafayette:

 There is no denying the French do things beautifully.
 I do love Paris,
and I was already planning our next trip there as soon as we got back!
(More Paris and Provence pictures here and here.)

And I do have some more creations to share with you:

These are two ribbon and lace paper dolls I made for a Paper Soiree swap:

And I'm really a novice at jewelry making,
but I didn't let it stop me from making this bird's nest necklace
for a swap at Marie Antoinette:

 I weaved the "nest" using lace and fabrics
which I stitched to buckram. The chain is made up of a few
different pieces, old and new.  And I added some birdies and sparkly gems.

I wanted to come up with a fun presentation that was quick and easy!
So I just laid down various washi tapes onto the lid of a jewelry box.
And added a chalkboard sticker.

Hope you all are enjoying the last days of summer.
Although I don't know why I say that,
there's still technically almost a month of summer left,
and it's in the 80s during the day here in San Diego.
But the nights are cooler, it's breezier,
and it just seems that the Labor Day weekend
is more the mark of the end of summer.
