Bonjour to all the Francophiles. Bringing a little French into your life is fun and quite addictive. I enjoy the hunt for anything that reminds me of France and their culture.
I traveled to Paris in April 2011 and let me tell you, the jet lag was worth it - talk about an inspiring city. Everything they say about the French flea markets is true...they are fabulous.
I love using French ephemera in my projects, as well as vintage French laces and trims. When I do use them you will see it in my description. Often my collection of antique French prayer cards are used in my jewelry pieces.
I grew up in Chicago and was surrounded by so many flea markets, antique shops and resale shops. It helped feed my passion for vintage postcards, French ephemera and vintage paper in general. My French friend, Jacqueline, would go home to France…
