i love paris...


Over the years my love of all things Parisian has become well known amongst my family and friends.
Of course I have not yet been to Paris, so I don't know if I would really love it or not.
But I prefer to think that I would. At least for a visit.

But I digress.

Let me start over.
Over the years, people whom I love and who love me have given me all sorts of Parisian themed gifts. Mostly they give me things Eiffel tower inspired.
I now have so much that I only bring it all out as part of my Valentine's Day decor, because, as we all know, Paris is the City of Love.

This year I think I am going to add some more color  - red, aqua and green perhaps - to my primarily pink collection.



I know that An American in Paris is the more popular "Parisian"  Gene Kelly flick, but my favorite is actually 
Les Girls. Fun, colorful and silly. It's like the original Real Housewives with dancing and great clothes.

I love this poster - and would love to have my own copy to frame, but I am afraid that in a house full of all-to-soon-to-be pubescent boys I may need to hold off...
some things don't need any encouragement.

But I am going to pull from the color pallet for Valentines Day inspiration this year.

Here are some other inspiring Eiffel Tower goodies I found...

They are all from Etsy and find out more just click the picture!

I love those little flower baubles.
I am a sucker for every necklace that features one.

 
I love the hearts added to this photo. So dream like.
Screen printed Scarf. Simpl and classy.
Just adorable.
Love the color. Love the birds.
