Snippets 2

I love that word!
According to the dictionary a ‘snippet’ is:  a small piece snipped off, a small bit,
scrap, morsel, or fragment
Just for your info as I’m sure you will need to know this -
It is also:  a small or mischievous person.  
 Hmmm, could be referring to me…?
Okay, now that bit is settled. 

 Snippet # 1 
DSC02518Once again I was ‘browsing’ the antiques and brocantes,
and happened upon several petite treasures.
A dusty pink jewelry box caught my eye
Luckily there were smaller treasures tucked inside

DSC02522 Two golden filgree lockets, ivory buckle, tie clip, silver charms,
ladies pocket-knives?!  Quite a varied collection!

Snippet # 2
I found a few other vintage lovelies,
and then I remembered I am way overdue for a giveaway!
I’ll be posting the details this week. 
I hope you like it!

Window Shopping

I thought you may enjoy a few Parisian window scenes.
Once again I must apologize for the reflection.




The cascades of blooms are paper flowers. 
I thought of the talented Noel at Fanciful Designs,  who creates beautiful paper creations.

Tea Anyone?

 Tea is popular here in Paris.
This is a good thing for me since I’m still getting used to the very strong café.

Christofle is a good place to start…love the classic shape of this teapot

Now I’m off to find a quiet spot to work on the online magazine.
The name is Belle Inspiration - what do you think?

Happy Father’s Day

I had THE best father in the world
I know.  Every little girl thinks the same
This image reminds me of all the sweet times we had together


My Daddy is in Heaven
celebrating with my Mother,
but not a day goes by that I don’t think of him.

Happy Father’s Day to all the great Dads out there!

“The greatest gift I ever had came from God, I call him Dad!”

Parisian Promenade

We went for a long walk this weekend,
passing some postcard perfect scenes

I never tire of the incredible architecture

A tranquil spot right under the tourist crowds of the Eiffel Tower
I always smile when I see this  horse drawn cart
