Did I? I can't remember doing that. But then my memory is terrible bad these days. I've just taken delivery from Amazon of a 2nd set of Harry Potter DVD's cos i forgot that I'd ordered the same thing just 3 days previously. How dumb is that?

Christmas in Paris....mmmm.... putting on my thinking cap.

I spent a weekend near Paris just before xmas once.
Never again!! How bloody cold?!

It was Disney land mind...but I froze walking / sitting round that place..and ended up missing the parade due to tiredness and also the people I was with being a bit rubbish...however I came away with some lovely photos...I shall dig through those.

To be honest I'd only ever go back to Disney if it were empty of children. Paris never appealed to me either, it is mental and busy and you take your life in your hands on the roads from all accounts of friends that have been lol
But then I hate the cold even more now and I hate crowds...I'm too much of a homesbody. English countryside in summer please. Laughing

I made this a little while ago but I think it fits the bill....love the colours and images on the mood board - I really enjoyed Paris - would have enjoyed it a whole lot more if I had had plenty of money to spend!!

Stunning beads, Lakelady. Do the silver beads move freely on the silver tubes? I love jewellery with a bit of movement.

Okeycokey, I was going for the picture to the bottom right of the mood board, but this looks more Nordic or somewhere my beloved moomins would live. Hey ho, half a point for trying lol - I do love this bead though, well pleased Very Happy

Love the necklace Cornish. fits the bill beautifully with the red white and blue PLUS the frosty looking ice beads. Is that text in the beads?

Tinker that bead is stunning.

Inspiration for my teardrop pendant comes from the shape of the Eiffel Tower with the curves of the Pont Neuf Bridge and my dichroic cab, which I made, picks up on the reflection element of the mood board.

I wore this on Christmas Day so here's my................ Christmas in Paris
