All Things French

This chandelier printed on burlap and framed, I found at
Hobby Lobby.

Raoul Dufy image on silk scarf. See the Eiffel Tower
on the right.

This is Dufy.
Here I am in my office all alone composing a post in
my dreams of France and everything French.

Borrowed image. Source unknown. If it is you, please, leave
me a comment and I will credit you and give 
a link back to your post.
My favorite photographic print that I have hanging
in my home.
Chambord  Castle.

Image of Eiffel Tower on a coaster from Sur La Table.

Paris in your mind's eye.

I'm joining this party at Castles Crowns and Cottages:

I remember, when I was around 10, my grandma had a Paris scarf like the one in your post. She had given it to me after lots of begging and I used to unfold it and look at the images and dream! My mom wouldn't let me wear it because "it was for older girls". I'm wondering where it is now.

Have a great weekend!

Great French left a nice comment and I had to come visit someone who is a fellow France-lover. I am following you on Google Friend Connect.

It seems that several of us are writing about France this week. After a visit there, there is much to say.

What a fun post! I was just at Hobby Lobby a few weeks ago and they had a whole aisle of Paris wall hangings. I came back a little later and most of it was gone! Glad you got a great piece.

You know that my heart belongs to a Frenchman and also to the city of Paris where my Frenchie is from... Oddly, he is a lot less enthusiastic about his birthplace.

I agree Paris is so pretty!!

Wonderful treasures. Anything French is lovely.

Love the Dufy images and that photo of the castle is magnificent. I remember we had an art office in a factory that was pretty grim. I put up some pictures of beautiful landscapes and felt better every time I looked at them. Thanks to Anita for hosting the party.

What lovely Parisian pictures! Thank you for sharing and thank you for the visit and sweet comment at The Dedicated House. It means the world!

You compiled a lovely collection of all things Paris. I love Hobby Lobby, and a new store just opened a short ten minutes from our home. My hubby says that he thinks that store opening is going to cost him a lot of money in the near future. { hee hee }. ;o)
