Slowly coming back to reality

It's starting to sink in now that I am home and that France did indeed happen and was as wonderful as I had imagined all these years it would be. I'm also starting to get the urge to do some crafting as it's been a while between drinks as they say!


I thought I might show off some of the crafty goodies I got myself while in France, mostly from this fabulous shop I had heard about and had to track down while in Paris. What a gorgeous shop! I picked up some cross stitch books I had had my eye on for some time, some pieces of fabric and a very cute little needlebook too. I picked up the magazine in a shop somewhere in Macon and the vintage buttons and ribbon from the Paris flea market. I didn't get as much time as I would have liked to shop for more crafty things but the things I did get have set those crafty cogs a-turning!

The cross stitch pattern on the right looks very pretty.
How lovely having craft supplies as memories of your trip.

So glad you had a wonderful trip, boy the weather was great, wasn't it? I am jealous of your fleamarket escapades, haven't had the chance to do any real shopping in Paris. I need to go sans enfants!
Looking forward to hearing more and seeing some of those 800 photos! Welcome back!

Welcome home! I definately have a touch of "crafty goodies envy" after seeing your beautiful French purchases. Trace
