For the love of Shutters

Hello everyone!

I hope your Thanksgiving week is off to a wonderful start!! 

I have a quick post for you tonight...I still seem to be trying to catch up from being gone, so I have not had a chance to even go through all of my photos from Nice yet...the combination of sick kids over the weekend and hosting a dinner party had me rather busy all weekend :)

While in the Cote d'Azur, I found myself in love with all of the shutters on the buildings!  Mostly they were in shades of turquoise, blue, and sage green...just so pretty...

and it didn't hurt that the buildings themselves were so beautiful, in shades of lemon and tangerine!

{LOVE the deep blue on this one}

{these crystal chandeliers were everywhere, hanging between buildings...very pretty!}

...more lights strewn overhead between buildings...the Cote d'Azur is gorgeous at night!

In honor of our recent trip to France, I made Boeuf Bourguignon for the dinner party I had this weekend and I wanted to share the recipe with is a Martha Stewart recipe that I have been making for years and it never disappoints!  It is a bit involved to make, but easy :))

Have a great night ~

Back from France!

{Nice, France}


Did you wonder where I've been??!  Sorry, I meant to post about heading back to France before we left {and I did mention it on my Facebook page} but with the e-course going on and getting everything ready for us to leave again so soon after our last trip...well, it just got a little crazy around here and posting kind of fell by the wayside :)

At any rate, I just spent the last week in Nice and the Cote d'Azur with my husband.  It was breathtaking!  I loved every minute of it!!!  We even got a chance to go into Italy on one of the days, as it is only 30 minutes from Nice!

I need to get all caught up, and I have lots of photos to download and sort thru...but I can't wait to share them with you, so I have a small sampling to start :))

Of course, I shopped the flea markets while in France and have LOTS of goodies to list in the SHOP!

The new collection will be available on Monday, November 26th!

I will be back soon with more from the Cote d'Azur...

Hope you enjoy the rest of your day ~
