Bonjour Mes Amis! What's with Le Francais you say? Well recent serendipitous events have converged in very French way, bringing out my inner Francophile. Here you have Le Papillon, my most recent scarf, which lately has been my le addiction:
You can't really see the butterfly, but she is there. Said scarf is now listed in le shoppe.
I've mentioned it before, and i'll say it again, Marie Claire idees is a wonder to behold.
It's my absolute favorite craft magazine, and I've recently allowed my subscription to run out, because I enjoy the excitement of visiting the newstand, buying it, and sitting in le cafe with a cup o' joe, visions of craft projects dancing in my head. I know, i need to get out more often. And I will I declare. Ok, I am just giddy with excitement, we are going to California! A friend of ours is getting married in Sacramento, and we are flying and staying in San Francisco for 4 days, i can hardly contain my excitement. I know 4 days is too short but since this is our first time away from l'enfant, I didn't want to push it. And truly, I am not lacking a measure of ambivalence. I will miss and worry about her! But Jeff and I really need this trip away by ourselves. It's been 6 years good grief. I have 2 things there that I must do. First, i want to go to a Japanese bookstore and have my fill of looking and no doubt buying some craft books, we don't have any around here, and I have to order them all online, I would love to just browse to my hearts content. Secondly, and I don't have a life list, but if I did this would be under the category of PLACES i NEED TO EAT AT BEFORE i DIE. I'm going to Chez Panisse, of the legendary Alice Waters. In the 1960's she was a foremost advocate of local, seasonal, sustainable agriculture in Berkley.
Excuse moi, I must now go make le reservation, avoir.
EDIT: For you Les Miserables that cannot get your hands on a copy of Idees, I will be having a give-a-way, just leave a comment by Friday PM, and I'll randomly pick a post and the winner will be sent the most recent!
