*photo heavy post *

hello! it's 2009!!! yeah! we survived another year!

we just got home from Paris and it was amazing! this was our metro stop by the hotel. we stayed at the Rive Gauche on St. Jacques. it was so nice to get away for a few days. We saw all the sites and went on an evening Seine River cruise, so romantic! saw the Eiffel Tower in all it's glory, dressed in blue with yellow stars for the european flag and spent New Years on the Champs Elysses!!! who could ask for anything more? i seriously have the husband of the year!in the metro waiting areathe first day after we arrived we went to Le Puces it was a treasure trove of inspiration and eye candy! VERY expensive, but absolutely worth going to, even in 2 degree celcius weather!!!! it was freezing!!! our feet were numb at the end of the day! we spent 5 hours there and got through about half! i was in love! i could of spent 2 days there. If i was with my super BFC there would have been no stopping us! seriously! here is a little eye candy...oh my goodness, there were so many different chandeliers, i was nuts!!! i decided i wanted to do a coffe table book of chandeliers...
incredible...
jason found some amazing old books and i found some great old photos and paper lovlies from like the 1800's. so amazing.
ahhhh, so dreamy...vintage doll parts....a little creepy....but still supa cool! there were some great stauarythis one reminds me of my boys, fighting, yet loving...then i stumbled upon a vintage letter press booth.....oh, so heavenly.....being the font junkie that i am, i was in this booth for at least an hour....i did end up purchasing my last name and our first initials...so cute.while i was in the letter booth, Jason found old medical stuff. even cooler....

holy moly!!!! this post is getting really long i have so much more to share.....it will have to be a two parter...
