poupées arc-en-ciel ~ rainbow dolls

Bonjour and Happy New Year ~ Bonne Année!

We thought what better way to begin the year than with a big splash of color!  These rainbow dolls~ poupée arc-en-ciel are truly amazing.  Not only are they uniquely special because they are handmade ~ fait à la main but they will become your child's best buddy.
They come in a variety of colors ~ couleurs and each beautiful detail is hand stitched. The clothing is removable and all of the dolls ~ poupées are machine washable.  This way you can sneak it away from your little doll to wash after they go to bed.
Check out Zootla's Etsy shop for more super cute creations!


Spoon me!

Okay, head's out of the gutters people! It's time to get some spooning on your fingers. I just je t'adore everything in this Etsy shop, goorsendjewelry. All of their items are handmade from beautiful spoons that received a second chance to shine. This time around they get to go out of the house sitting perfectly on your hand - making quite a statement!

Fork me too! Out of the gutter again people...

Some of my Favorites from Paris Chic Boutique :)

This week I'd like to feauture some of my favorites from Paris Chic Boutique.
This one is just a darling and our best seller. One of our first customers commissioned us to paint this saying. She says it to her daughter every night when she tucks her into bed. Such a sweet story behind it makes it even more precious!
These wall hangings are made of a white ceramic tile measuring 4" x 4". They are hand painted with the Eiffel Tower (of course!) and then kiln fired making all artwork permanent. You can choose your ribbon color to match your decor. Choose from a wide variety of colors.
*Little secret...there is a wire behind the bow, wrapped in matching ribbon. Hang from the wire this way the bow sits perfectly and doesn't pull. Like magic!
Trés chic and sweet!
Get yours today, go to

Happy New Year! Bonne Année!

What an absolutely wonderful piece to start off the New Year.

Our featured shop for the first of the year is
(Lisa's pieces at LP Jewelry)

This sterling silver spiral pendant is hand stamped-each letter - by this Etsy artist. And this message is right after our own says "Vis * Ris * Aime" in french meaning "Live * Laugh * Love".

As Lisa say's "words to live by"!

We wish everyone a wonderful New Year for 2008 and hope you visit often!

Week 1:Jewelry or Bijoux! Featuring Trésbelle

Ok, even though we started the blog and said that we will teach a new french 'saying' everyday, we thought that maybe it might be best to start with a few words at a time to get the ball rolling.
That said, we will start week 1 with the topic of Jewelry. Everyone loves something that sparkles and shines or jingles and jangles!

Today we will be featuring an item from our Aussie friend, Trésbelle.
Trésbelle Autumn necklace... or in french un collier.
These beautiful colors look great on any fashion all year round.
We found trésbelle's Etsy shop while surfing around and love her style. And from one newbie to another we wanted to say "way to go"!
So today's lesson taught you 2 new French words;
Jewelry = Bijoux
necklace = un collier
Extra bonus...we just learned that trés belle = very beautiful in french! Wow!
See we learn something new every day :)
Stay never know what tomorrow will bring, more exciting jewels!



Welcome to our blog. It's about decorating in french as we learn to speak french!
Actually we are just starting out in our Etsy shop
and we want to combine our love for french things while we try to learn the language.
We knew Etsy would be the perfect place to share our dreams. We get inspired and energized by visiting everyone's shops. Just being around all of these talented and creative people sends a great aura out of the computer! It's like being at a craft fair 24/7! Kudos to you all for following your hearts and sharing them with us, it is truly inspiring. We also give great gratitude to the makers and employees of Etsy. What a wonderful place they created for all of us to be apart of. Merci~~
