Paris To The Moon~This Saturday

Saturday, March 15th is Spring Boutique at Paris in Costa Mesa. It will be from 8:00 ~1:00. If you haven't had a chance to visit the store, this is a great time to go. I am flattered to be among the artists that bring their work, along with vintage treasures.
After this boutique I have one more in April and then I vow to work only on my business and garden, and new hobby of ribbon embroidery. I think I missed out on being a store owner because I love to play store. I spent all day today making these little bottle--I don't know quite what to call them.... but they were fun.

The image of the two Edwardian women is a copy of an original that I purchased at an Antique paper show.
I think the one below is my favorite. I spent quite a bit of time cutting and rolling pages from an antique french book. I think I'll call it "There are never enough words."
I will be selling these this weekend, along with my baby clothes and new little hats . As you can tell, I have no photos of those...that would be focusing on what I should be doing....that's no fun.

This little delicate beauty is a French paper~mache ballerina. I have no idea her age, but she is quite stunning.

hi Karen!
I would definitely beautiful and romantic, how very pretty!!! You have been a busy girl.
Good for you....I would like to visit that store in person only, how long would it take me to walk there ya think?.....
I tried emailing that gal about the basket swap, I have a feeling something did not work out how it should have, and I am sad about that. (will keep you posted if I hear anything) Wish I was able to be your partner too!!! So, I have decided that next swap you do, I am keeping close tabs on you and I promise to be there every step to see it through!
