Une fête de vacances à Paris France


Just knock at her chateau door for a holiday party in Paris France at our friend Anita's at...http://wwwcastlescrownscottages.blogspot.com/ link party. I adore this lady and all her French ways.


Looking out the window of the plane with great excitement in landing in Paris to then arrive at Anita's Chateau where the romance of France and friends begin.


Oh my! And look who sat on the plane next to me! French actor "Gerard Depardieu" while in our wonderful conversation I invited him along, I hope you don't mind Anita but he is really game for some French partying!
Anita effortlessly mastered the art of this party inviting all who wanted to come and of course I made sure there was cake. As the cake arrived in a graceful hurry and custom baked, I could not let this moment get by without a photo taken.
What a sight, the elegance of her entry invites us into her chateau castle of crowns and beautiful mirrors and chandeliers such time-honored beauty that soulfully produces gracious results leaving you speechless. I felt honored to spend time in her French guest room of beauty, the everyday elegance (élégance rustique) was every bit her design style in following her heart in every detail she added to the room, I don't ever want to leave.

Practical rustic French brocante sophistication in a guest cottage, so inspiring for a French heart.

A neutral patina old-world finishes filled with history for relaxed French country elegance that fills your soulful desires living in a cottage lifestyle setting.

Brocante shopping in France for my French country home.


Lot's of French kissing in Paris France...Life is too short...so kiss me slowly...

J’ai deux amours…..Mon pays et Paris.
(I have two loves…..my country and Paris.)

Though I often looked for one, I finally had to admit that there could be no cure for Paris.

Inspiring a holiday vacation in Paris France and all the love and romance it inspires. when I arrive home I will be doing a GiveAway!!! So please return.

Bonjour ma belle....enfin, je suis arrivée à ce billet merveilleux....

WOW....vraiment, je suis, ÉMUE.

Doré, I was so pleasantly fatigued last night and just this morning for the firt time, I slept in. Knowing that summer is HERE, that I am going to venture out in my art and writing and then having this fabulous party, I am so happy. I open my email to find my friend Penny's message saying, "YOU MUST GO SEE DORÉ'S POST!" Here I am, I am so touched.

YOUR POST and many others are perfectly done. All I wanted was for you all to dig down deep and find what it is that you love about this city, using your STYLES that I love so......and you all did. Now the magic has begun, and I am convinced that in this harsh world of ours, we CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE when we dream and act on that dream.

The photos and prose are MAGIC, and oh that chateau, le gateau, les pigeons, les meubles et toutes les autres décorations sont inoubiable.......

Have fun, go visit the others, let them know you are LINKED so that they can enjoy this rustic beauty of the city, the culture and the people we love.

Grosses bises ma belle, Anita

Angelsdoor * Penny said...

Dear Dore,
Be still my heart... Oh how I love your beautiful post. It was such a joy to see that you had come to see Bebe off as she floats to Paris. Your kind words have warmed my heart.. I am so happy you enjoyed my humble french hot air balloon.. It was such fun to create.
Enjoy your stay in France.. I wish it was my closet you were coming to
organize, last year I purchased a pale pink french armoire. I just love the inside, it is padded on the back and sides.. Truth be told I wish the finish was your beautiful work... I love your grey and white.. What a luck woman she is to have your beautiful imagination and skills at hand.
With great admiration,
Penny

YONKS said...

LOL!

I do have a bit of a weakness with those chewed up kind of faces. I used to have a massive crush on Rutger Hauer but he really is a bit chewed up now. I still swoon when I see him in Blade Runner. Gerard was brilliant in Green Card!

Great chatting with you, I have found a soul mate!
