Dreaming of Paris

I’m dreaming of returning to Paris. To help me achieve my vision, scooting me further along and closer to the real thing, I purchased a set of vintage-like ‘bonjour‘ tags from a lovely blogosphere pal. She surprised me and included the key to my dream apartment as a special little bonus! Like images for a vision board, Parisian-themed objects have been landing in my lap since I first wrote in November the words “I am going to France!” So far there’s been: a greeting card complete with young woman sipping cafe au lait in front of the Eiffel Tower; a tote for jewelry or craft supplies; a business card case; and a CD of Parisian music.

The table I’ve used for this photo is one that I painted, inspired by a photo taken by Frances Mayes, author of “Under the Tuscan Sun.” It was in a calendar with the same title several years ago and is of a garden statue.

I don’t know how. I don’t know when. I just know that I’m going. … Stay tuned for travel updates!

    Hold on to your dream, Lisa! You’ll be there before you know it.

    Happy Holidays to you!

    Lisa! This is charming…and such a wonderful thing to have on your wish list. Larry and I return each November…and next year, if everything works out as planned we will have a small flat in Paris. May your dream of returning come true soon. A bientot, toujours, Robin
    PS perhaps we will cross paths in France one day?
