Yet another fabulous day....




Today we were treated to lunch by Pascale Garnier and her friend Catherine. The above photos are that of Pascale's beautiful work....I took these at last Sundays 'Paris Creations' here in Paris. Pascale sell her designs by kits..... and needless to tell you, I bought lots & lots of these at the show. There are so many varieties to choose from that it was terribly (terribly) hard to stop myself.
During lunch Catherine showed us photos of the amazing miniatures that she makes, sadly I have no photos to share with you of her work....but to say I was sitting with two of the most talented women is an understatement!!!
Then.....when I thought it couldn't get any better.....
....it SNOWED!!!! Just a little, but snow never the less!
Thank you Pascale & Catherine.....many more beautiful memories to take home.

What a fabulous time you are having!! Spending time with such wonderfully talented women must be making you itch to get back home and work on your next project. How big is the suitcase stuffed with minis I wonder ;)

My favourite piece in these kits is the packing case - what a great idea.

Hello long time no see :)

I have been so busy with my new christmas goodies to get to blog as much as I'd like to.

Wow I love the olive tree! I so need one!

I see you have had snow, I'm hoping that it will miss us, but some parts of the UK are totally covered.

Glad to see you are still having lots of fun!
