Less is More, which this week is foliage. I have just got this set of stamps and so was pleased they got to see ink so soon. I'm not too sure I like how I tried to do a pattern around the sentiment - I may do another card later on.
I have just come back from a wonderful trip to Paris. It was actually a prize I won in a competition and it was a shopping experience. We got to Paris on Friday afternoon and had a private car from the airport to our hotel and we were driven down the Champs de Elysee. It was the most wonderful boutique hotel Bel Ami - around 217euros a night so not somewhere I would normally stay. We were shown around the hotel and introduced to the staff - from tripadvisor this appears to be the norm!
On Saturday we had time to see the Louvre, but not go inside before the shopping experience began at 1pm with a consultation for 1 hour at the hotel, getting to know my style etc. Then we were driven from boutique to boutique in a chauffeured Mercedes 360 AMG until 6pm. The OH was in his element and was quiet happy going around from place to place in the car. I had £500 spending money as part of the prize, although it didn't go very far with Paris prices. The last place we went to was Escada and even with prize money it was out of what I would spend. The personal shopper had picked out a bag there for me to see which was 880 euros - when I said it wasn't very practical for using she said it wasn't meant to be!!!!
On Sunday we had a chance to visit the Museum D'Orsay, which the last time I was in Paris had only been open a few years, and I didn't get the chance to go inside, only see to it from a river trip, so I was in my element once inside. Of course it was cooler too, the temp was 33 degrees this weekend. I have found it hard to get in an autumnal mood for this card.
Back down to earth now - with a bump!
