Lécher les Vitrines!

translation = licking the windows, or as we like to say WINDOW SHOPPING! Arrived in France on Sunday - sadly the quaint shops are closed... pretty window displays to tease me (no burlap in sight ;) )

so clean and neat and inspiring...
and then we stumbled upon ONE OPEN SHOP. The owner was having work done at her shop and allowed us the chance to come on in! Purses, shoes, boots, killer accessories, a tiny spa... the downstairs is the shoe and boot room - how about the WALLS and decor in dressing rooms!
Everything was so carefully planned and displayed...
the ceiling!
and a pretty pair of fuscia and black suede pumps with killer French heels for ME! Wahoooooooo... because I totally misjudged the spring attire here in northern France...
everyone is still in black and boots. Tomorrow - Thursday is all work, work, work... glad I got this little bit of fun!

You be mine

I am seriously in love with this stack of vintage pretties.  My favorite is this quaint hankie!!

 Flea market find. All mine.  For - drum roll - $10!  An entire Marshall's shopping bag full. Luckily my partner in crime has eagle eyes for boxes of neglected old stuff.  Stay tuned to see what they become later!!

Omgosh Vegan Banana Cake

So. I have been MIA for almost an entire year in blog days.  I can hear the crickets. Nah, even they have left the building.  But, I am not a quitter.  Regardless of what you may have heard!  So I am back with a mission. I want to capture my recipes here. Yawn. I know. Food blog so 5 years ago.  But, it is for me. So I can have an actual record of my successful vegan offerings. I know. Vegan.  Yuck. Right?  How did that happen?  One daughter with a soul for kindness and ethical treatment of animals.  The rest of us are just vegetarians.  We are shamefully consuming butter, eggs and cheese. Not often. Just enough to gorge ourselves with our favorite pizza. And cookies. So the vegan child doesn't waste away to her birth weight, I am on a mission to redo our recipes into really good vegan offerings.  So. Warm from the oven on a brisk Autumn eve, banana cake.

It is a yummy first attempt.  I can't believe I am saying this but I will cut the sugar next time.  Crazy, huh?  I didn…

Pretty in pink...

Cotton shirts.  Love 'em. Usually can't wear 'em.  Too tight. Pull at the boobs.  Or, shrink in the first wash.  And being a plus size gal, I need some softness and movement to keep an illusion of me.  Reality in a stiff button up, not so pretty. So, an old linens table cloth, so soft. Nicely torn for texture. And an old soft lace cafe curtain.

Stella, my model, is asymmetrical so it appears wonky.
