Valentino boots are stunning@

Well it has been 6 months since my foot surgery and still have some swelling. I tried today to wear my cute suede black high heel boots--my left foot did not agree. I saw these on Pintrest and fell in love. I went to the web and looked them up and the ones the stores around me have in stock are with a chunky heel--totally changes the feel of the boot.
 I am a pushover for bows.  My foot probably wouldn't fit in it but I would like to try. Anyone see these beauties?

Bon bon server

 Dated 1806 on bon bon server
 Pastry or bon bon tongs one has a cherub on it
Pretty tea things

I've started to collect bon bon servers and pastry tongs. 
Very useful if having a tea fete or dessert with friends. So pretty and ornate but still useful.  So far I have found most of them on Ebay and one at our one a month flea/antiques market Scott's down past Atlanta airport.
Using these pretty serving pieces makes me slow down and think about how life was when they were made, how people entertained and how each piece of silver had a purpose. 
 Collecting is fun but using the pretty things I collect is even more enjoyable.

Cosmetic packaging pretty girly stuff !

Why do I always fall in love with items made in Japan or Korea? I love this line from Etude Cosmetics called Etoinette ( a riff on Marie Antoinette) all pink and girly and pretty. Love the fat little powder jar and it seems that is sold out on Ebay and everywhere. 
If anyone finds it in pink let me know. Using pretty cosmetics is such a fun start to the day. I love that they take time and make a full line and pretty packaging is so typical of Asian cosmetic companies. I really wish I could be in Asian sometimes seems like all the things I want are sold or made there or Paris!

The Moon and the Sun

Mid April 2015 will be release date for new movie The Moon and the Sun. Pierce Brosnan stars as the King seeking the secret to immortality. He thinks he finds it in a mermaids life force.  
Fan Bing Bing (I adore her name) is the mermaid. 
 I won't give anymore away. It is based on the book of the same name by Vonda McIntyre. 
 Sounds like fun and wonder scenery and costumes and Pierce as the Sun King.

Beautiful Paris... je suis desole

Evil has lashed out in Paris and cracked the peaceful after holiday glow. I am heartbroken that such evil exists and is encouraged by these radical fringe groups. How does one fall into that mindset? Is it purely a power trip or fanatical zealotry?  Whatever it is it needs to be pushed back into the dark place it came from.
Prayers for all of Paris, for the police and for the victims families. How can evil grow so large in such a beautiful place? I have always felt that Paris is my  other home  
Pray for peace and justice.
