I can’t believe it has been almost two weeks since I was in Paris!!! Some nights, I still dream about it. Paris was that good!!! To remember this wonderful trip, I’ve been stitching Blackbird Design’s “Souvenir de France”. Just finished it today, and I’m still thinking about what I should finish it into. I’m going to throw the finished product into my Paris souvenir giveaway, so if you would like to be included for the draw please leave a comment in my previous post saying so, there are still a few days left until I close the entry on Easter Sunday~

Since we are talking about souvenirs here, might as well show you some of my souvenirs beside the stitching stash I showed in my last post. All of these besides the three dolls were from Paris~ I bought some tea, a few cups from Starbucks, cup holders, truffle salt and foie gras paste, and the white thing is actually a fragranced stone that you can hang in the closet~ I found the three dolls at London Heathrow airport while waiting for my connection, they are just too cute to pass by!!
While I was going through my photos from the trip, I came across this photo which I took at the Grand Trianon in Versailles. This beautiful scroll frame was in the room that once belonged to Napoleon’s mother, and later Empress Marie-Louise. I’m not sure who exactly that it belonged to since all the introductions were in French, but I could imagine them sitting here in that room stitching and chatting away~
Nina asked to see more photos of the city, well, here is a small collection of it. I had so many wonderful memories from this trip, and I know it will stay with me forever!!!
Thanks for visiting, and Happy Easter!!!!
