A long lost Hello!

   My, but it has been a long time!  But I'm back, and I hope you all have been well! 

   The reason for my absence was that I wasn't well! haha  But, I am completely better now, after being down for - for real - two months. Oi! But, that is done with.  We now have a very beautiful spring to greet us!

   Spring is my favorite season. I think many people can say this! I'm sure I'm not awfully original with that one, but I put my name on the list with millions of others. I don't have to completely contrary, do I?  But, where I come from, too many people say they can't wait for winter, and..."the colder the better!", and "I love snow!" Oh, really? You must not be the one shoveling it out of the driveway, then, are you?
   Okay, so I'm not the one shoveling, either. But, so what?! Winter and snow means I can't wear cute shoes and pretty dresses! And that's just AWFUL!  hahaha

   Well, there is plenty of cute, Spring action going on over at  I really have so much fun looking at everyone's amazing fashion sets there, and making them, too... Well, let's just say it's addicting.  I will be adding a couple of my new sets here, soon, so check back.

   I also have an amazing recipe I simply must share with you!  But, right now, it is five in the a.m. and I will have to post these later, when I'm not cross eyed!

   All for now! Take care and get out those cute dresses! Spring is so in right now! ;)

We have been fortunate, thus far, in enjoying an extremely mild winter! It makes one full of home that the loveliness of spring is just around the corner! There is something about Paris that brings out the blossoms on the dreariest day, so I put together this little number on Yes, I am addicted! It is such fun to see what delights everyone across the globe comes up with, and for fashion nutters like me, it is sheer heaven! 

I love the idea of leather booties with a flowing, light dress. It's still completely feminine, but with a flirtatious nod to a Victorian gentleman.  The straw boater is just meant to be, and a fun little tribute to Parisian entertainer, Maurice Chevalier! 

Once, I was delighted to see straw boaters for sale in Clair's Boutique, of all places! But, you can still find them if you hunt around, although lady's varieties are more difficult to come by. This had been sold at Liberty London, but is no longer available. Le sigh. I shall take a straw boater and simply change the band! Et voila!

Paris in Love

A New Home

Hello, friends!

I am feeling very welcome with the kind helpers at blogspot, and I want you to feel welcome, too!  This is my online home. A place where we can be reunited with a grace and charm of living that has been lost, but not forgotten. And anything not forgotten, can't be entirely lost, now can it? A happy thought, indeed! This brings me to the very essence of my place in the world wide web.  To introduce others to a rather fun and extremely charming way of life. So, please make yourself comfortable, and enjoy the delicious little slice of life to be dished up!

Welcome and many thanks!
