Marie Antoinette


I'm in the middle of sorting through my cases of fashion jewelry.  I really have too much, I'll post some of the prettier pieces soon.  I'm going to sell or practically give away the rest.  Only keeping what I will wear.

There is a wonderful blog that I follow, http://madameguillotine.org.uk. The writer is really great.  She
posts beautiful pictures and wonderful descriptions of the places she visits.  She is also a writer.  Today
her topic was very interesting.  It is the beauty secrets of Marie Antoinette.  I love Marie Antoinette and feel that she was very misunderstood, and just happened to be Queen of France at the wrong time.  Anyway enough about that.  Take a look at the blog, I really enjoy her entries.

I realize I have not blogged in forever, but I'm going to try to begin again.  It seems like a new year when
school finally is over.  I just finished my 24th year in teaching French to high school students.  Wow what a year, I am mentally and emotionally exhausted.  My oldest has finished his first year in college and is back home.  I really missed him.  My youngest is an official "teen" now.  She is preparing for her tenth dance recital.  My husband is still working with computers and doing wonderful things in our yard.  (Pictures to come).

This summer I hope to clean, organize and redecorate the whole house.  Yes that's a lot of work, but I've
got to get started.  I'll post before and after photos as I go.  Even if no one reads this blog, I hope it keeps me on track.  I want to be able to look back and see the progress I've made.

I also need to work on lessons for next year.  I've been told that I will only be teaching French next year. (Yea!!! no more Spanish)  I really hope so and want to word on re-decorating my room and developing some great lessons.

So I took off Memorial Day to rest up before the big organization and cleaning journey tomorrow.

Wish me luck!

Have a Louboutin Fourth of July!

I would love to own some Louboutin shoes! They are so glamorous and beautiful. With the signature red soles and the rosettes on the bottoms on the heels. I definitely would wear a pair of these to have Barbeque and see Fireworks on Monday. Hope everyone has a Happy Fourth of July! My daughter is planning on making a very special dessert for lunch on the fourth. If it turns out I'll put a picture on.

Paris Flowers, I wish I was in Paris!

My friend is in Paris right now and I really envy him. I love Paris even when it is hot and muggy. Paris is Paris. I believe I was French in another life. When I think of France, it's like a longing to go home. Anywhere in France is good, but mostly the Paris area or anywhere in southern France. The ambiance is wonderful, I never feel nervous or afraid in France, which is kind of strange. It just feels like I've been there many times before, which I have, but it is not the same feeling. Longing for France today. I have to do better with giving credit for the pictures. I collect them, but don't remember where I got them. I know the flowers are from the shop Nom de la Rose, from Paris Breakfast (great blog). I'm not sure where the girl came from. The louvre is mine, I think. I promise to do better!
