Been looking for a black, satin handbag for a while. I wanted to hold out for something special because I didn’t need it right away.
Today I found it.
My mom and I try to get to this estate sale in town every month, and sadly I’ve missed it the last few months. There is a “sale room” where some not so “estate-y” things are located. But there are usually some bargain treasures there. And this little black bag was one of them. It was marked $20, but on Sunday, everything under $100 is half price. So I got it for $10!
Want to know what the bonus is? There were matching, black, satin gloves inside with a rhinestone closure. Tres adorable!
Speaking of Paris… I ran across this book that is to be released on April 18th.
The book is 128 presumably beautiful pages of photographs taken by Nichole and Evan Robertson. I can’t wait to see Paris at its colorful best right from the comfort of my own home (since I can’t be there, that is!)
I also can’t wait to get my name on the waiting list. And so can you right here!
Paris in Color, amazon.com $11.87 (Book cover photo taken from author's website at littlebrownpen.com)
GILT.com had a great collection of really fun home furnishings and decor Friday. There were just too many favorites to limit myself to one on this post. So here are a few of my favorite France-inspired things…
If you like flowers and all things floral, spring is your season. Are there are no shortage of items on the market for those that beautify themselves and their home with blooms.

Every spring I start jonesing for a white, cream or natural colored bag to tote around all my necessities. And who are we kidding? More importantly to show off a new handbag.
My morning browse has left me wanting something that’s way out of my league. It’s either this Tod’s vintage bag or a year of tuition at a pricey private school for one of my kids. I quickly remind myself that my kids aren’t in school yet (well, preschool doesn’t count), and yet, this is still out of my stay-at-home-mom budget by a long shot.
But as I’ve reminded you all several times, this blog is even for the most outrageous covets. It’s the next best thing to owning it outright. Or renting it for special occasions. Ok well, it’ll just have to do…
