The flower shops in Paris were one of my most favourite things when I lived there. I bought flowers every single week when I lived there. My favourite shop was Thalie in the 5th arrondissement (close to the laboratoire where I did my graduate research). The owner, Philippe, actually lived in California for a while (think Frenchman crossed with a bit of a surfer dude!) - we sometimes drank champagne in the back of his shop when he would return with a few crates from a visit to the Champagne region...

Heather, I often used to eat my lunch in Jardin du Luxembourg when I was a graduate student doing research in the 5th arrondissement. Just lovely memories of that park...

Kerry Lynn, loved your gilded cage class that I took even though I had a hard time with the cage( I was the one you kept trying to help, the one with a PhD in science who for the love of her couldn't "get it" for the longest time, lol). Anyways, by the time it clicked, I ran out of wire! Very happy to report though that when I got home I made a brand new one from scratch, no problem (must have been the jet-lag, eh?) and am working on my second gilded cage! p.s. our whole family is going to work on your tanenbaum tree kit that I bought from you at Bella Market next weekend :)

Your necklace is stunning, Carol! You did an amazing job on it. It was great to meet you at SB and tell you in person how much I admire your farmhouse and especially your farmhouse laundry room :)

Too adorable, Teresa. I think she just wants to play with you all day. Maybe you can get some work done when she's napping :)

I'm so glad your online classes will be permanently available, as this gives me a chance to get myself together sometime and do one of them :) Thanks, Heather!

Your new blue bucket looks right at home in your house, Heather. I also love that "trick or tote" bag from Karla and Beth's class.

Carol, your farmhouse is just divine, with or without those white pumpkins! Sigh....

Heather, such a lovely and easy revamping project. I have that wonderful book too and had forgotten about the labels and the back of it - thanks for reminding me, sweeties! p.s. LOVE how you photographed the bottles on that super metal stool
