Loving beauty ~

Can you be in love with a book?
I bought this gorgeous book the other day...
French General Treasured Notions

I'm so in love with all of the lovely goodies inside ~
the sweet ideas....really just the entire thing.

Maybe one day I can see Tinsel Trading Company for myself but
until then, I will enjoy this wonderful feast for the eyes ~

I found this little video on You Tube showcasing the book:

Cindy of Sweet Bead Studio is hosting a wonderful giveaway on her blog HERE!!
Her Art Bliss Retreat sounds so amazing to me.....

Thank you all so very much for your love
and support of our precious friend, Rose....
They have a long road of healing ahead but
with your thoughts and prayers we can have faith
that her daughter will recover quickly.

We love you so Rose!!!

Wishing you a wonderful weekend dear friends,
hugs and love,

Hey Dawn...Well I can see why you would love the book. Can you just imagine going to the basement and finding all those treasures of the past? Wow! The book sure looks beautiful and I enjoyed the little video.
Have a wonderful weekend.

Those little round thingys in the corner of the book I found some in the crevices of the old radio cabinet of my parents. Gosh I think I might have thrown them away..dont know if they were a part of the cabinet...I hope I didnt..I was drooling over all that stuff in that store...thanks for sharing...and I hope Bella Rosas daughter is sad

Stacey said...

I enjoyed the video. How very interesting and it looks as if it was an intriguing, magical kind of project. Enjoy your book and I will stop and pay attention if I ever see it.

I need to get that book! I visited the store in NY when I was there last year, and it's sooooo fabulous! Such beautiful merchandise everywhere - I could have stayed all day I'm sure, but there was more NY to see. ::Jill

Claudia said...

I want that book, too! I can't afford it right now, but I spent some time thumbing through it at the bookstore. What a wonderful treasure-trove of ideas!


Lori said...

that book is amazing i am sure...i have two of her other ones and they are so pretty to look at...

Becky said...

Oh I told you so, Dawn I knew you would love this book. I bet you already did a few of the projects.
I hope you get to go some day, it is a great place, and it has you written all over it.

Hope your in the middle of a wonderful weekend.

Rustique Gal said...

Dawn that book looks fabulous-I'll save my pennies! I hope Rose's Ashley is recovering well. I'm just catching up and must go, but am hoping to watch the video soon and see what else you have had to say this week. I always enjoy your postings!

Debbie Doughty said...

Every time I see a post about Tinsel Trading Company I feel sick. Why? Because I was in NYC for New Year's Eve and didn't get to go there!!! I was with a group of friends/tour guides who didn't see it as a priority. Can you imagine???

Romeo said...

What's this? A book "she" hasn't seen?!?! Eek - hide it! If another book comes into this house....will it mean no snacks for the week?!?! Oh the horror!

And the Tinsel Trading Company?! Oh yes, "she's" drooled over that name and their pictures many a time. Wouldn't it be grand to get in there and chase ribbon?!?!

I hope you are having a grand weekend!

Romeo and "her"

Love the video on the history of the makings of your book! Beautiful job. Love it over here you inspire so many things.

Come by and see my bird signs Hand Painted by me! :)

I think you may like them due to your bird header and the love you have for your birds as well as the making of them.

I will return soon to snoop a bit more...Keep up the great work with your diet, you must feel so proud of yourself.

How I would love to visit Tinsel Trading Company! I'll bet I could spend a week in there, I would probably be overwhelmed. Let's put it on our "bucket list" of things to do before we die, ok? We will go together in case one of us faints.....
Loves, QueenMarcy
