Etspiration Wednesday: The French Market

Another late post as we spent all day flying back to Oregon. Oh how I missed our pine trees and cool weather! Glad to be home.

Our theme for this week is the French market. I just watched Midnight in Paris (it's really cute) and the main character has romantic notions of living in Paris, strolling the boulevards, and enjoying one of the most beautiful cities in the world in the rain.

Technically, I've been to Paris. I spent 11 hours in DeGaulle on a layover. But my goodness, I don't think that counts nearly well enough and I made myself a promise that one day I'd get back there and shop, shop, shop.

So as a way of getting started, I took a scenic trip to Etsy and found some inspirational items for a digital voyage to the French Market.

On y va!
