My favorite things I found in France

I found so many beautiful things in France this trip. One of them is this 19th century silk ribbon from a opera singer. Shirley got one and I got one. We are twins in so many ways it would frighten you. 

Oooh and I love me some stars I got this one that holds a candle behind it which is going to hang from my chandelier. It formed residence was a Catholic Church. 

Speaking of stars and churches I got this little guy too.  He was from behind a vierge at the church. Now he will be hanging out with angel wings.



For those of you who know I am always trying to lure away Shirleys boy with gifts of rawhide bones wrapped with chicken. Well this time was no exception. This time I upped the ante as I brought dehydrated chicken as well. I am not sure if that was what did the trick or not but let me tell you what happened next. I left 
Shirley downstairs to play with my iPhone and I went to bed. Sleeping in the chateau in a cozy attic bedroom is not the worst thing that has ever happened to me. So Shirley comes up about 1 am for  a visit and diggie came with her. We visited and he hopped on my bed. Shirls said,"come on diggie "but he wouldn't move. She went downstairs and said ,"we shall see how long this lasts."So after about 10 minutes if tummy rubs he flips the blanket up with his nose and snuggled by my legs. He only stayed an hour but he left his mom and dad downstairs wondering if  the unthinkable has happened. Tartlet steals the brocante items and now Digbert ? Well I do not want to exaggerate but this dog is really smart when he goes to bed in the morning he lifts the blankets to get in and lays on the pillow.Hw is the most wonderful thing I have ever found in 
France.He melts my heart every time I see him. Who new bad dog breath and whiskers could become the desires of your heart? It can and did. Xxoo diggie

Home with treats for me and a few for you

I brought you all lots if beautiful goodies. You know if I show them to you now the pacing will begin and you will wear out your floor boards. Think February. I have some things that will be going to a very patient someone in California. Ans a birthday girl here too You know who you are. But now onto my treats that you can see for free. 

I am drooling over my newest treasures that keep coming in the mail. This little guy came home on the plane with me. 18th century Italian. It was love at first sight. I saw him as he was in a shop in isle sur la sorgue that was closed. I went back the next day and looked again then at 5 in the morning I woke up my husband Jeff to tell him of my naked angel and the need he should come reside with us and live above our bed. 
Once I told Jeff the floor he was standing on was pink and grey he decided it must be done. There are many reasons I love my husband but the mere fact he says to get it if I love it he will love it too. Crazy love will so that to you. 
I always visit my friend Odile when I am in town and her store never disappoints.She has a amazing eye for detail.  I got these little 18th century fragments to lay on.......
This amazing shelf that I got.....
to go with this painting  I got in Paris last year. With Shirley I got some beautiful chairs as well. It was a good trip for me. I do not often find so many things I am looking for.When you just enjoy the journey it kind is falls in your lap. I am looking for a picture of my favorite thing in France. I might have to steal a picture from Shirley just like I stole this thing from her.
