On Sunday, Laura and I will show our Spring Vision for Metis at the Long Beach Flea Market. This has, frankly, consumed me for the last few weeks. More than baskets. Initial inspiration came in a box of French Macaroons~
If you have visited our Metis booth, or if you know me or Laura personally, you understand our natural hospitality; on Friday night my niece Nicole will come help our kitchen become a creme puff factory, for treats to give our shoppers on Sunday~
She does not know it yet, but I will gift Nicole one of the lavender pillows we will show this weekend; vintage French grain sacks I found in Cluny with new-old-stock French 1920’s puffy sew-on monograms. Nicole will think she’s gone to heaven with this kidney pillow. The grain sacks definitely cut the pink; the monos are superbe; wait til you see it all…~
As I attempt to tick off my list of To Do’s for the New Year, Live Writer was way up there. This is my first post with Live Writer, which Laura has been cheerleading me to try. What do you think? This year I want BIG pics; Jo has been cheerleading me on the pics. Yes, lots of pics. Pretty stuff to show you. Fingers crossed as I hit the Publish button! Check our Metis Blog for LOTS of pretty stuff this weekend.
