Springtime in December


Well I will soon be winging my way across the ocean in search of more of this stuff...beautiful old French ephemera.  No matter how much I have, I always want more, so I will be on the hunt for some of these wonderful treasures as I make my way through a few of the weekend flea markets in Paris.

I really am still pinching myself that I am going back to Paris...it is surreal to think that I will be spending my birthday in such a beautiful place.  I just wish my kids could join us, but they will be holding down the fort and taking care of dogs.  Maybe they will decorate the house for me too, since I don't have any of my Christmas decor put out...except the few pink ornaments I showed you last week...yikes!




I had said I wanted to have a simple Christmas this year, and apparently that's what I will be having since I really need to be cleaning before I go and the decking of the halls will have to wait.  I will throw out a few things when I get home and call it done in time for visitors to arrive.

In fact my house looks more like springtime than early December at the moment.  I had a photo shoot yesterday and these are the leftover perks...a beautiful bunch of pink roses.  I love having fresh flowers in the house, and I'm sensing a whole pink Christmas theme this year.  We'll see if I feel the same way when I return from France where I'm hoping to get some decorating inspiration for the holidays.

Before I head off to bed, I wanted to remind everyone that this weekend is a Vintage Source weekend.  As those of your who have been to one of their sales already know, they are always a good time, and you can always find some wonderful gifts, such as vintage ornaments, and something for yourself of course!  I won't be able to make this one, but I know the girls will have some great stuff for sale...check out their site (click HERE) for a sneak peek at some of the great stuff they will have this weekend!
