Charlottes Brocante 10 times to France give away(and some cute kids too)

 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!!!!!

                                                                    Cire Trudon
                                  The oldest candle company in Paris. Black tapers wrapper in old documents.Mmmmmmm.
