my favorite piece of French ephemera was a piece of paper, hand written over and over were the words " eviter les mauvais compagnons " .. translated " avoid evil companions ". .. i xeroxed it (showing my age there) and used it to cover a pair of lampshades for a pair of deco sconces ..

loving your blog ..

wishing you luck at warrenton ..

So I just gave her a pen and paper and now she is satisfied! There! Anne, your enthusiasm is contagious, and I love the goodies you are putting together for your giveaway.
