Merci Beaucoup!

The countdown to Paris continues!  
This week is a busy one for me but I need to take some time to thank all of you! 
Merci Beaucoup!

As my Paris dream is about to come true,
so many of you are wishing me a happy trip and sharing in my excitement!
 Some of you have even sent me little gifts! 
Susan and Sherry both found vintage books and took the time to send them to me!

The Heart of France has lovely photos to inspire me!

Let's Travel in France has information about my favorite landmarks!

My friend Donna surprised me with a package of French Inspiration!
She is so talented and made the card, the stamps and the tag! 

One of my favorite gifts has been this vintage hankie sent to me by my friend Deb.
I have had the best time looking at this adorable piece of cloth!
I can just see someone buying this as a souvenir on their trip to Paris in the 50's??
 Some of my favorite phrases! 

This week I will be taking care of final details.  Packing and preparing for my dream of a lifetime trip to Paris!  Merci Beaucoup mes amis for joining in my excitment!

I'm sharing this at

Au revoir.

Linda
