Chateau Clarisse Wine

When I stayed at Villa Clarisse in Ile de Ré in September, I received a complimentary bottle of Chateau Clarisse wine. I brought it home with me and shared it with Vincent. We both really liked the taste of it and longed for more.   Last month I received an email from Chateau Clarisse announcing that James Suckling, a major wine critic and wine connoisseur, had reviewed a few vintages of Chateau Clarisse and gave them high marks, rating them from 90 to 94 out of a hundred.   The revie...

Guest Post: Marilyn Miller

Each of us has a story to tell. I have so appreciated and enjoyed each story being shared. Here is my story.     As a young girl, I dreamt of being a fashion designer. I would design clothes from scraps of cloth for my dolls. My family didn’t understand that desire to be a creative soul, so after a while, my dream left me, but it must have really just been tucked away in a corner of my heart.     As I was approaching forty years old I began evaluating...

Pastel Pom Pom Wreaths

Happy December to all! I was inspired by the trending hues of rose gold and apricot to create these mini felt pom pom wreaths. Wool felt pom poms are fun to work with this time of year and I’ve wanted to make something new with them since the paper leaf garland I made a few years ago. Terri at DIY Garland on Etsy has the best pom pom colors! I narrowed mine down to blush, peach, and oat. To recreate this trio of pom pom wreaths, you’ll need ribbon, a hot glue gun, mini wreath bases, and 3 sets...

A Holiday Proposal

It’s holiday gift time, and what could be better than the gift of Paris. Most people were denied the joy of visiting Paris this year with the travel restrictions, so what better way to remind you or people on your gift list of the city than a great photo.  It’s been a challenging year to say the least for everyone I know. Personally, it’s been challenging because I’ve seen my tour business, from which I make most of my income from, dwindle to practically zero since March. A good thing to c...

White Kitty in a Party Dress

Her dress is made of vintage Liberty lawn that I inherited from my mom. She is very fancy with her silk bow and cashmere sweater. Here is a close-up of her purse- and her sweater. The sweater has antique 3-hole buttons. I will be putting the 4 kitties into my Etsy shop today. I have one more, but it is pouring rain today so no photos yet.
