With the start of the fall season I have been very excited to make some new pieces for my jewelry line. I have been very inspired by nature and different shades of blue.

Here is a sneak peek of what i have been working on!

Marseille is the second largest city in France aside from Paris with a very large population. As avid market goers and rather competant shoppers, we have also noticed that lavender and soap can be bought almost anywhere and in rather large quanities. If i like you enough, you may find that you will too receive some aromatic soap from the region... we will see if i am capable of sharing...

Our hotel, while is in a slightly shady area, is rather nice and close to the port where there are many restaurants. We have learned to eat during the accustomed french eating times between 12 and 2 and after 7. Between these times the only things available are crepes and ice cream. While many would not think possible, it is entirely so to become sick of nutella after 6 weeks of indulging in the addicting spread.

On our second day in this city we had a tour arranged and enjoyed visiiting the town of Aix. We got to see some intricate medieval mansions and cathedrals and stroll the cobblestone paths. We had a few hours to eat lunch and enjoy the market with items ranging from fruit, cheese, bread and seafood to flowers and baskets to records, clothing and antiques. We even marvelled in trying some new flavours of macarons. They had some peculiar ones like dilled salmon and foie gras that we didn't dare try at the time and went with our favourites like salted caramel and lemon instead.

That is all for now friends. Our journey is almost complete...

Nice, France

Getting to Nice was quite a whirlwind. First of all, the day we left Paris just so happened to be Bastille Day, probably the largest holiday in France. We just so happened to be leaving at exactly the same time that everyone was coming to watch the parade on the Champs de Elysees. Trying to manouever our luggage down and up the stairs of the metro through hoards of people was a story in itself. We managed somehow with all of our luggage and found our way to the train station where we were pretty clueless having never been on one. We got on one of the carriages only to discover we got in the wrong one. A french man was yelling at us to get going because the train was leaving in two minutes and we still had far to go. We bustled out of there and ran as fast as anyone could with that much luggage, and found our way to our seats. Somewhere in the midst of that situation Mitch had found both my wallet and.passports on the ground of the first carriage. We are increidibly lucky that he noticed them!!

We made our way to Nice safe and sound where we spent the first day and a half at leisure.
Our hotel is close to all the restaurants, the shops and the beach. The weather has been great! Yesterday we took a tour to Monoco, Eze, the medieval village of St.Paul, Antibes and Cannes. It was a great way to see the french riviera in a short amount of time.

Today is our last day in Nice!

Last days in Paris

While the weather has been slightly unpredictable, varying between bouts of sun and rain, Paris is a very dreamy place. Everywhere you walk screams romanticism with the beautiful gardens, charming carousels, intricate architecture of both the past and present and the obvious, of course, the eiffel tower.

On our last few days we got the pleasure to see the Palace of Versailles (one of the most beautiful buildings i have ever seen!!), Disney Paris (awesome but not quite as elaborate as ours back home) and Moulin Rouge.

Ohhh and how can i forget?....
We also went to the famous fleamarket in Paris. So many lovely things to be had
.. if i had the funds to ship furniture back to Canada i would in a heart beat.

Onwards to Southern France!
