I Miss You!

Photo from Faerieenchantment.blogspot

Bonjour My Dear Friends! I have been absent for so long and I miss you! Life has been a bit of whirlwind lately. Life made me prioritize my responsibilities and blogging had to take a back seat. However, I'm back!!!! I've missed you dearly and I've missed posting so much. I realize it is so therapeutic for me. I can't wait to catch up with all of you. I've been incognito reading your glorious posts and trying to stay up to date. So as I try to catch up I will leave you with some of the things I'm loving right now....

I am obsessing over anything apothecary right now! I love it all and I think I need to start collecting some beautiful vintage apothecary jars. I love the above image. It's just the inspiration I need :)

I adore this indescribable French Aqua (?) color. What is it called anyway!?! I love it. All shades of it! From the Laduree signature color to the stunning patina on the fountains in Paris. I'm in love!

I am on the hunt for a beautiful antique Absinthe Fountain. Ever since seeing a post that Lisa from Lisa Golightly's blog with her Absinthe fountain in her bathroom, I can't stop thinking of finding one. Incidentally Lisa has the most incredible items on her website Lisa Golightly. Her creations are spun from wishes and dreams!!!

Top hat from an auction

I found a gorgeous Victorian Beaver Top Hat at the flea market with the original leather case and I adore it.

Mary Poppins!!!! We are going to see the musical in November and I can't wait!!! I think I'll pop in the DVD tomorrow night and enjoy a bit of nostalgia from my childhood. My Mom and I used to love watching this movie together. Great memories.

I am still really into the vintage circus theme and I'm thinking that my son's birthday party needs to be this theme. If you have any idea or suggestions I would love to hear them!

French Military Shako

I ADORE military and band Shako right now. The pomp, the feathers, the decorations! I'm in heaven!
That's all for tonight but I will be back to my blogging now. I so appreciate all of your lovely comments and all of my blogging buddies. It all means so much to me. You have been such a great source of support and escape for me...Thank you!!!

  1. Yay, you're back! I've missed you, too! Hope everything is well now my friend. Great comeback-post - I love the first photo - and the top hat and the case are gorgeous. Those were the days...
    Judith, I've started a new blog with a personal journal to go with it! Hope you'll come and visit soon and that you'll like the new concept =)
    Hugs, Trudi (formerly The Deco Detective)

  2. Dearest Judith, I have missed you so much! You inspired me to go out and get a tutu and some new point shoes. I danced long ago, but have no artifacts of my former life. I now have, thanks to your Repetto post a tutu and new shoes in my bedroom, beautifully displayed! Oh please come to my post; I am writing another little play. This one is about a dog in Paris. I will be posting act 2 this Saturday. Do try to catch act one however. Your photos are lovely, gorgeous and so perfect. Do come back soon to us, who miss your beauty! Anita

  3. Salut Judith! I've missed you too:)
    That's the way it is with blogging; it's a fun way to escape and enjoy..but real life does come first! so, I understand you perfectly.


  4. I love your blog!!! This was my first visit and I will be back!! Very enjoyable!!! Love all the beautiful pics!!! You have a way of taking us there!!

  5. Welcome back Judith! You have been missed! I've been taking a bit of a vacation from my blog lately too!

    I don't have any ideas to help you out with your son's party yet, but I will work on it and let you know!

    Wishing you a wonderful day!


  6. Hope you are doing well Judith! I missed you!
    Would love to get together again before the baby arrives, if you have time.

  7. Yay! blog beauty is restored!!! welcome back.

  8. Hope you are having a FAB summer!!!

  9. I SO MISS YOU TOO JUDITH!! I have been running so hard and so little time for blogging too... but when I come sit, I don't see you:( Welcome back!

  10. Bienvenue...Love your pictures!!! Life can be unpredicatable :)
    Feel free to visit my blog & take a look at the treasures i have found.

    Welcome Back :)

  11. Welcome Home Judith! I have been busy too! Blogging has to be backburnered at times and I think according to the rules it is OK:) I love your posts and they always make me smile~
    {sorry if there is two comments... I left one yesterday and don't see it so here is another!}

  12. I really love that can-can style photo! And welcome back!

  13. That's what summer is for.....slowing down and taking blogging breaks, though I did miss all your fabulous photos and where else can I borrow divine dresses? We can all blog like crazy this winter when it warm and cosy inside. Good to have you back and I look forward to posting on your website soon (when I get back up to blogging speed as well). Love XO ~ S

  14. I have missed you so much! We (us bloggers) seem to have all slowed down a bit this summer. Look how long it took me to get back with you! It's been necessary for me to stay away from the computer during the day as much as possible, or else I have no time to accomplish anything - and then if I go out at night I must wait another day before visiting again. Oh the trials and tribulations of blogging. Ha!
    Your finds are enchanting. I know your son's Birthday will be enchanting too.

  15. You have been missed, and here's a big welcome back HELLO!

  16. Hi Judith, Welcome back...I too took much of the summer off. I love your thoughts and Parisian loves that you shared today.
