A Thing Of Beauty ...

is a joy forever!

French Mademoiselle won
her first giveaway!

I received these lovely French gardenia soaps,
and a pretty little jar from Anya Caliendo's blog
Couture Millinery Atelier.

Six fragant rose soaps are
wafting through my house ...




Anya is a very talented hatmaker
who creates exquisite hats like these:

J'adore les chapeaux!

When I was in the Loire Valley, France
a couple of weeks ago, I spotted this modern
artwork at Château de Chambord.

Made me think of Alexander McQueen's
2008 spring / summer collection ...

Don't you think?

Au Revoir,

Nice prize!

There was no one like McQueen, alas. When I think of all of the collections that were still in his head that we'll now never see ....
