It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....












One of the reasons for being in Paris at this time of the year was to see the lead-up to Christmas....& so far I haven't been disappointed!! The French certainly know how to put on a show!!
I took these photos today at the larger department stores here in Paris....they have totally 'out-done' themselves!!! There is certainly something here for every one....silver, crystal, dinner ware, fragrance, a little bit of 'bling', the biggest tree I think I have ever seen and of course a chandelier or two.....I'm in heaven!!!
I hope you enjoy these photos as much as I enjoyed taking them...gosh I'm having so much fun!!!

Your pics are spectacular, and I think it would be lovely to re-create in 1:12 scale the table setting in one of your pictures!
By the way, I've sent out today the hat you've won in my giveaway. It'll be there in your p.o. box waiting for you :)
