French Decor is Everywhere!

I love all the French decor that keeps popping up all over Blogland.
I just can't seem to get enough french ribbon, french tags, french linens, french writing, french architecture, and french pillows.

Like this french inspired burlap pillow with rosettes.  I made it yesterday and was tickled pink that the image turned out good.

These two burlap pillows are still waiting for a home.
They are in my etsy shop.

Suddenly I'm hungry for french toast....

Now THAT ended on an unexpectedly yummy note. And here it is, morning.....hmmmmmmmmmmm.......

I love the French stuff too, ESPECIALLY when it's done by people who pull it together and display with a bit of flair, like you.

Chani said...

Hi Sissie, I'm really excited about this too, I love the French style, both Vintage Paris and Countryside! I'm working at the moment on some typical French things that I'm going to sell in a new webshop soon, maybe you would like to stop by when I open.
A bientôt, Chani from Paris

Hi Sissie:I'm a new blogger and came across your blog. It is so beautiful to look at. I love your kitties, too. My love for cats turned into a business near Ottawa, Canada. I've been in-home cat-sitting for 15 years and I love it. Your burlap pillows are gorgeous. I'm your new follower. Take care, Deb

Then you can contact them and start comparing selection and pricing. The addition of a version of each song that doesn't include a piano accompaniment is simply amazing because it allows you to play along with the band if you want to. What I like to do is pretend I am actually sitting for the exam. how to play piano man on piano piano playing dog 2010
