Bonjour!!! Inspire me Thursday - Mixed Media Monday and some of my French Macaroons...

Hi Everyone...please grab a seat...just kidding....This week Inspire me Thursday's prompt is "Chair" and Mixed Media Monday's Prompt is "time of day" so I decided to create a chair that was inspired by one of my favorite cities...Paris...and the time of day is early morning...when I like to sit at a nice cafe and enjoy my morning coffee looking at the people that walk by....

I also thought I would show you my latest creations...I started a line of French Macaroon necklaces....they are so sweet with the engraved mini Eiffel towers....

I am having way too much fun....I was supposed to be in Paris this week for a late season vacation but I had to postpone it for a little while...so I thought I would pretend for a little bit....

Au revoir!!!

Hugs
Diana

Hello Beautiful! How are you today? I wish you can take me to Paris and just leave me there.

de ja vu - I left this comment yesterday and forgot to publish it so no wonder I feel like I have said this before.

Wow, I hope you get to go. I am ja-louse.

I love Paris in the Springtime, I love Paris in the fall, I love Paris drinking coffee on a pavement cafe....

I feel tempted to hop on the Eurostar now and enjoy a late night coffee on the Champs Elysee!

Now all I can think about is French pastry and very black coffee!

What a fun and original piece. I love it!
