Just dropping in to say Hi

Hi folks,

Just a quick post to say we're back from out little Paris trip. It was lovely ... but it was freezing!  Hence, there wasn't much leisurely strolling and taking in the sights - it was brisk walking, and "ooh, that's nice", then "lets find somewhere to warm up and have a coffee"!

View from our apartment
We had a lovely apartment with a great view of the Eiffel Tower.  We were on the top/6th floor and although there was a tiny lift which could just about accommodate one person at a time, we decided to "take the stairs" - all 120 of them!  Needless to say, I've come back from Paris a tad fitter than which I went!

So with this new found energy, I'm in spring cleaning mode.  Yesterday I recovered my dining room chairs (well, admittedly mum did most of the work - she's good at that kind of thing), then I Vaxed/shampooed the dining room carpet and went and bought paint to freshen up the woodwork.

So there won't be much crafting going on over the next few days - I've got to do the clearing out whilst I'm in the mood!

I'll leave you with a couple of pics - how fab was the bedroom wallpaper in our apartment - aren't these the same as the Hampton Art stamps?

and I loved this "lock" bridge at Notre Dame

Well I'll love you and leave you, if I stay at this computer any longer that'll be it - spring cleaning out the window!

See you soon,
Take care
Suze xx

Hi Suze
I might be lying on the sofa but you have transported me to Paris. Oh how I wish I was there.
Then that most amazing wallpaper, any more photos of the apartment?
I am sure you are buzzing with inspiration.

Nice to come back fitter than when you went but sorry that it was so very cold. The room paper is amazing and would make agreat background for crafts. Also the idea of the locks is terrific and inspiring.

Thanks for sharing them

Love Chrissie xx
