My love affair with the City of Lights began early in my childhood when someone gave me a book called: France, Country of Delight: Paris and the Provinces. It came with color slides that I viewed on my Panorama illuminated viewer! It also came with a 33 record featuring Charles Boyer as tour guide. Between his French accent and a view of the City, I fell madly in love.
I believe, that if we wish for something from a young age, and we continue to nourish it, we get closer to living it later on. My dream of Paris began with this book and was nourished by travelling to Paris in college and then marrying a Frenchman later on. To live a dream is to live a life fulfilled! After all this time, I can now call Paris my home...
As I gather my belongings together for this upcoming trip, it should come as no surprise that I start first with my jewelry. You know that I love every piece of jewelry I make but sometimes I do play favorites! I always take pieces from the Biltmore and Lucky Collections ( Click on your favorite piece for detailed information )-- Simply said, they just speak to me!
Watch for the rest of jewelry I'm taking with me to be featured on next week's blog. Then it's off to Paris where I'll be sending you Letters from Paris -- my insider view of this amazing City!
