I borrowed this picture from someone's blog...not sure where or who? Chandeliers add instant charm to any decor, but especially French style.

I am in love with the casual sophistication of French decor...the history of each piece exposed in the faded grandeur that once was and still is. The muted and matte shades of browns, cream and taupe, mixed with elements of crystal, such as chandeliers...that is the ultimate in design as far as I am concerned.

"Shabby Chic" has it's suited to a beach/lake house or a home in the southwest USA...and I love that style too. However, French style...even the connotation that "Paris" or "the south of France" evoke an image of a way of life that has been around for centuries. The time-worn, rusted, at one time very expensive items like wrought iron beds...don't they instantly have more charm if they are from France? I think they do.

Perhaps I will be fortunate enough to go to Paris and the south of France one day...until then, I must love it vicariously through books, blogs, magazines and films.

Adorable Furry Felines

Anyone who knows me knows that I love cats.  They are part of my life and I adore them!  I thought I would share a few cute pictures that were sent to me via email.  Are they not precious?

The Goddess Coat

As promised from my previous post "The Goddess and Her Jersey Coat"...I am posting a picture of the black Goddess coat.  I have it displayed on a size 4 mannequin (because that's all I have) to show the hood being worn.  But I stand by what I said earlier...this coat and the other style that has no hood, both look fantastic on curvier women too!  I'd take a picture of me wearing my grey one, but I don't want to scare people away!

The Challenges of Trying to be a Writer

Hello people. I have tweaked my original post titled "Intellectual Property & Copycats". If you read the original version, I must apologize for my whining and ranting...I think I was in a bad mood that day. My thoughts on the subject have not changed, only the way I have written about them. I have learned from this...a writer (or wanna-be writer like me) should never publish something until they have proof-read, waited a few days, re-read and proof-read again...until what they have written is exactly how they want it to be read.

I do believe that I will take a nap now....
