Adios Granada and Bonjour Paris !

My lovelies, I'm going to Paris on wednesday morning and right this minute, I can't tell you how I feel, excited of course but also stressed and incredibly nervous

But why, will you ask, Paris in autumn is always lovely and fun.
Oui, bien sûr.....
But the reason I'm going to Paris is let's say 70% work and ok...70% fun too.

In a nutshell, let me explain to you, I gave up on the wedding planning.
I don't want to bore you with details and my problems but in the end, I found out I'm just a designer and that creating is my only passion.

So I'm back to square one really.
Many years ago, I used to exhibit at Scènes d'Intérieur at Maison&Objet to show my work.
At the moment, it's too soon to decide on shows and strategies.

I'm just going to feel the pulse and knock on doors, like I started at the beginning
and boy...let me tell you it's gonna be tough but I'm a brave little soldier.
Until now, I've got one rendez-vous confirmed out of 6
and I hope to hear from the other 5 buyers to whom I sent photos of my work for preview.

And, yes you can see my new notebooks collection on my new blog Papier mon amour.
Do hop there and tell me what you think !

I'll be back on september 16th. Gosh I'll miss you !!
It is not certain that I'll be able to blog from Paris but Monchéri is taking his laptop so I'll try
I'll do my best....Please don't forget me and wish me good luck !

Hi Lala,

How beautiful... Autumn in Paris. I was thinking of going the first week in November.

As to your work... you're so talented you don't need luck!

Do stop in Laduree for me and have a Coupe Violette- Cassis or a Saint Honore rose-framboise!

Also... have you been to the Annick Goutal shop on rue Castiglione recently. Their scents are marvelous.



PS - i hope the photos of the man in Barcelona did not offend.

Hi Sweet Lala ~

As soon as we sell our house, we are headed to Europe! You will be among the first to know our plans!

You are going to meet Sande? How wonderful! I absolutely adore her and would have loved to have met so many of the lovely ladies last night! Wouldn't it be great to organize a blogger favorites weekend...hmmmm, something for us to ponder for sure!

Happy and loving travels!

Lala, I'm sorry the wedding planner gig didn't work out for you as I really think you are talented in that area but you have to do what makes you happy. You are so talented as a paper designer. I wish you well in Paris, little soldier ;-)
