Come Fly With Me!



My friend Sue sent me a package today!  She and her family flew to Paris last December and she had a few 'goodies' she wanted to share with me.
Photo Album, book and a map of Paris
which inspired this table
Come Fly With Me!
I love theses little thrifted Paris plates and added white, red and black to the place setting.
Sue sent me a few coins and my friend Carter gave me the paper Euro!  I've got money now!!
My vintage red makeup case was perfect to add to this table.  Sue also gave me a little AirFrance pouch with some socks, sleeping mask, toothbrush/paste and this Clarins set so I can get refreshed after my long flight! 
I'll think I'm in First Class!!
This Paris map and guide will come in handy for sure!
  Let's take a look at it while we enjoy our lunch!
The arrow is pointing to where I'll be staying on the Rue Saint Dominique ...not far from the Eiffel Tower and the Seine! 
I'll be on a plane this time next week!  
Lots of lists to check over and packing to do! 

I am so excited and I appreciate all of you joining in the fun!

Linda, this is such a darling table. Your red makeup case really sets the stage. Love the red, white, and black details. I've always loved the logo on the Galleries Lafyette map with the ET strapped to the girl's head. Oh, just think, you'll be flying off to Paris soon. ~ Sarah

I love your decorations and I love what Sue sent you! Everything is beautiful. And your trip is almost here.

I wish everyone knew you - for if they did they would know of all people - you are so kind and sweet and generous to all - that you deserve this blessing and I am thrilled for you.
