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.

Even though we wished everyone a Happy New Year yesterday, we will have to say it again for the first day of the year...
It's a cold ~ Il fait froid and dreary day ~ le jour here in NYC. Did everyone see those crowds in Times Square? I saw on the news that people actually wore Depends so that they can wait there all day and night! That's crazy! Once you get into those barricaded areas you cannot leave...no bathroom, no food or drinks! And people were there from 7AM. Although I am from ~ Je suis de New York I have never been there on New Year's. I say maybe one day but I think it's more comfortable watching the ball drop from a TV! Où vis-tu?: Where do you live?
Today's featured shop is Juliapearl.etsy.com
We came across this Copper Filigree and Aqua Crystal pendant ~ pendentif from julia's shop and J'adore! ~ I love it!
