Tea in the Afternoon

One guess where we stopped for tea this weekend...

Hint: It starts with an L...

Okay, that was too easy. Laduree

I ate that second (third) macaron just for you!

Do you Celebrate La Joie de Vivre?

Calling all writers, photographers and anyway who enjoys
Celebrating La Joie de Vivre
(Celebrating the Joy of Living)

Belle Inspiration Magazine along with Inspired Ink Media is planning
to publish a series of books that embraces la joie de vivre.

La Joie de Vivre is not about spending masses of money, it is a way of life. 
Living and enjoying each moment, and finding the beauty in everything around us.

Of course a big dose of French style never hurts, so there'll be plenty of that too!

I would be thrilled if you would like to share any tips, stories, or how-to's on how you
celebrate la joie de vivre in your everyday life -
at home or in your business! 
Love to see your photos too! 

If you are interested in submitting your info to be published in our book series,
please click here and send me an email with 'Book Series' as the subject!

Merci d'avance!

Put a Little Ooh La La in Your Life!



Hope you are Celebrating Summertime La Joie de Vivre

Bon week-end!

Getting ready for travel clients this week.
This is our second "Made in Paris" - Crafty Getaways!
Part of our Blogger Getaways

We explore the brocantes and special boutiques looking for little treasures.

One of my many weaknesses are antique inkwells.
I keep my eyes open when browsing the shops.

This is my favorite, very Art Nouveau.
I actually use them. I love sending old-fashioned letters.
The scratch of an ink pen is music to my ears.
I use wax seals too...I was born in the wrong century...

Do you have a weakness when it come to antiquing or thrifting?

Put a Little Ooh La La in Your Life!

Then we have a workshop planned to create something unique from our treasures.

A Taste of Italy in Paris

A little Taste of Italy in Paris!  
A delicious Italian Gourmet 'Deli' in the 16th district of Paris. 

I find this a perfect place for fresh lasagne when I'm running short on time.  
Is it just me, or do you ever have those days?
