Greetings from Versaille and Charlottes Brocante giveaway

Just a metro ride away from Paris and you will find yourself in the land of Versailles.The beauty of it is unimaginable even when you are standing there.The details just pour out from every place you can look.You cannot take a step without taking a photo.It is the pictures in your mind that are the most precious.They travel with you everywhere you go .Whenever you hear someone say the word Versailles you are taken back to all the little images your mind captured on that day.

This is just one of the statues that stands around the pool in front admiring her beauty.

Or was she thinking with amour for King Triton across the way?...........................

And this is looking straight back towards Versailles with fountains going and music sweetly floating through the air. Now if you will excuse me I need to go to Costco (grocery shopping).A girl can have her memories and they are going with me.

Do not forget to enter the drawing from the post below.I will be choosing winners on Monday.I forgot to say over the pond people are welcome.Astier,Cire Trudon and Laduree cadeauxs (gifts) await you!

 Things have been  utterly and beautifully busy here.On the way home from France I stopped in Washington d.c and met my daughter Charlotte for her 8 th grade graduation trip.It was a beautiful week and she now is officially in high school.
 I also have a newly minted college graduate by the name of Gabriel.This picture makes me laugh as we both look like we got into the brown hair dye.....The bow tie I adore and ,of course it has a little pink in it.

And now to the give away ,the give away hooray, hooray, hooray!!!!Hurry ,hurry and enter today!!!!

I brought things back from my favorite places that I frequent every time I am in Paris. I asked my husband if I was out of control as I feel the need to "run errands"while I am in Paris.I am sure you could figure out how he answered.If you cannot I will leave it to your imagination.

What can I say.Laduree soft seafoam green notepad.

                                                 Of course a little ooh la la from the flea markets of France.Sheet music.Not just sheet music.FRENCH HANDWRITTEN SHEET MUSIC!!!!!
