We were supposed to go to Paris for a few days and right now we would be on the coast of Spain in a little town called Sitges… if not for the d@-n virus. I know, “cry me the blues”…we are all in the same boat. How are YOU holding up?
Here are some good things when you can’t go to Paris…
Shopping on eBay For A Vintage French Hat Rack
It was so fun to see the box from France arrive with my vintage hat rack a couple of days ago! Almost as good as buying it at the Puces de Vanves flea market in Paris (yeah, right). Have you shopped on eBay lately? Vintage French hat racks.
This is by our front door where we drop off keys and Chief’s leashes in the basket. The heavy iron umbrella stand was actually bought at a Paris flea market…and I carried it back to our apartment on the metro across town.

Comfortable Stay At Home Dress
I grabbed this Smocked Gauze Shift Dress from Target thinking that I could wear it as a bathing suit cover-up (so important with my extra quarantine lbs.). But I tried it on with some jewelry and wore it to my weekly highly anticipated Trader Joe’s run (with a mask, of course)! And now it’s even on sale for only $24. This is an extra small (I’m only 5’1″) and it is supposed to be loose and blousy. I would size up if you wanted it longer. Comes in other colors, too.
How About Some Rosé?
The top left was painted by my cousin, Janice of our apartment when we lived in Paris…and the other two were purchased in Paris.
There, wasn’t that almost as good as going to Paris? HA! Not. Might as well pour yourself a little glass of rosé 🙂
Come back on Thursday as we will be showing some beautiful outdoor spaces from around the country from some of my favorite bloggers!
Thanks for visiting!
