These little french fabric labels were my first purchase at my first french flea market. I can say that I wasn't really sure the flea markets of Paris would be great...but they were and these little treasures were a good sign...first table fresh off the metro.
Port de Vanves was an open air market and the prices were reasonable and people where friendly. Porte de Clingancourt is another bigger market but the prices were double/triple for very similar items.
I am doing a 52 week class with Kim Klassen called Beyond the Layers. So today I have been revisiting photos from my summer in Paris on this snowy winter day and adding some textures. You should definitely check out Kim's classes. Her Skinny Mini is free and a great introduction to the world of Photoshop.
I have been mulling over words...thinking about my word for the year and it is persevere...to persist in anything undertaken; maintain a purpose in spite of obstacles, or discouragement; continue steadfastly. Although this is my word for 2012 I always come back to my favorites...believe, dream, hope, faith. So I made a bracelet and necklace recently to represent my favorites.
