I've had a terrific holiday. Paris offered delicious food, fine wines and lovely champagne.
We took Alsace Routen on the way home, it was a beautiful and very romantic experience. We spent the night among other things, in Strasbourg, also a beautiful and charming city. I am so filled with inspiration for upcoming mini-projects, my task now is to prioritize.

I obviously had visited Leah's shop in Montmartre district. An amazing experience. Her shop is mostly an exhibition of houses she has built. She sells a few basic furniture set and a bit of her own thing.
I swallowed all of these visual impressions of her beautiful and inspiring houses and interior design. She has a fantastic French style. What surprised me most was how thin and fine it all was. Her panels on the wall, so fine and so thin. Her clothes on hangers, so fine and thin. It's all very beautiful.

In addition, I came up with 2 other miniature shops, they sold furniture and houses. They are located in a small passage with many other stores. They are almost next to each other. Both stores have a very large selection, one store is significantly cheaper than the other. Across from one shop, is also a bookstore which sells books on French residential style through the ages.

I bought lots of magazines from both France and Germany. On the French market, I found some lace and I bought a few u-painted furniture.

When I got home, I received a gift I was so fortunate to win a few days before my vacation starts. The gift has traveled from Germany, enjoy the pictures. It is from Ulrike from She makes the most amazing bears.

 Very nice box.
 Out look  Pitty, but  I have renamed her. Pretty is her name now, she's so sweet and so pretty and so full of expression.
 Sweet cards, chocolates and fine scarf. I use scarves, all year round. (wrinkles saved so well behind such a scarf). Pretty and I will share the yellow scarf
Ulrike takes the most amazing photos. Often her teddies get up of decorative cups. My picture does not come close to the expression as Ulrike get . See the pictures on her blog, they are always very very beautiful.

Note Pretty's sweet and expressive face and the delicate paws. I thank you from all my heart, I love pretty, she's adorable sweet. She brings smile when I see at her. I will take so much care of her. I am impressed how complete she is. Ulrike I send you lots of hugs and kisses. Thank you.


My blog has been 1 year. Therefore, it is appropriate to show what I have received of gifts from all around the world. Some of the presents decorates already in some of my room boxes.
