Claudia's book reintroduced
Old Hollywood & French Glamour.
She continues to fly across our Sky's
on her magic carpet to Paris to keep
this classic beautiful look
{Sometimes if you look up at the mOOn during the night
you might see her twinkling by...look close
you may mistake her for a star or dewdrop}~

This Mademoiselle
has a way of waving her wand to create
a French Boudoir for anyone who shuts
her eyes & wishes three times~

Fairies and lots of them
are busy making her nest
uncovering found treasures
for you~

And preparing a beautiful celebration
for her arrival~

There will be special treats & surprises
everywhere you look~

Lucy's House

This is My house
{way back in the day...it has changed completely}

favorite pieces I purchased from
Lucy are in this picture~

  1. Oohh I am going to try to make it; if not, can we pre-pay for a signed copy??? I hope you received your fragrant paquet today....all best~ A

  2. Oh my gosh, I am filled with utter delight..how I wish I lived in such a wonderful atmosphere as this one..it would certainly take away the bit of blues I've been having over the weather (and the inevitability of things in life)
    Thank you for this inspiration.

    Take care!

  3. Wish I could be there with my girls!! Have fun!!

  4. Oh I love it!! xoxoxo ~Ashley

  5. Oh I am actually coming into S. California on Friday to launch Metis Linens. Now if I can just figure out how to squeeze this in.

    If you have a moment stop by and enter my Fab French giveaway.

  6. Oh Miss Janet,
    Of course, you are always so sweet & such a dear friend.
    Thank you for telling the world about the fabulously French, Miss Claudia, coming to Vignettes.
    The little shop is bursting with pride!
    Can't wait to see your beautiful smiling face.

  7. I can't believe this! I was supposed to be in LA that week end to visit my son in College. I would have loved to come! Just had to cancel the visit as I have too much on my plate before leaving for my 3 weeks trekking trip.
    Any chance there will be a book tour in New York?
    All best and success for what promises to be a fun afternoon.

  8. Are these shops all in San Diego? How did I miss them before? They look enchanting!

  9. This book looks gorgeous...I adore all things french!! One more for my ever growing collection -

  10. Hi Janet,
    Sorry I haven't been by for a while.
    I've missed you...
    Oh how I wish I could come to this wonderful event! I too remember being inspired by Claudia's book many years ago. I wanted to paint a koi pond in my entry! What a party it's going to be!! Have the best time with all your friends and please take lots of pictures to share with all of us.
    Tons of love to you my friend,

  11. How beautiful! You girls are fierce with elegance and design. So much inspiration in each photograph. Wish I could be there for the book signing! What fun that will be. I will need to just go to my favorite bookstore and enjoy every page as I sip a cup of warm coffee and dream awhile! Wonderful work! blessings

  12. Oh my friend...this sounds amazing..I so love this all...so pretty..I am thinking this is how heaven must be decorated...yes..a little heavenly cloud!

  15. OMG you are such a doll! I am so glad you told everyone they could catch me (and you too) flying around the moon on any given night! Can't wait to see you there, will Noel be coming too?

  16. Hi Dear Janet,
    I am so excited for the soiree! I'm dreaming of all of the goodies I will be bringing back home, the blog friends I will get to meet in person, and the magical world Vignettes always creates. See you Saturday!

  18. Hi Janet,
    I am sure it will be a fabulous party! The address for Cire Trudon is 78 Rue de Seine. I am doing a post on the store for sometime next week. Talk soon. Much love XO

  19. Oh Janet,
    I only wish that I could be there. Living in the same country would be a help !! I hope that it all goes well.
    Your home looks so beutiful. It is so light. My house, being Victorian, is quite dark in parts, so I am always a little envious of homes with so much light.
    Have a fun time. XXXX

  20. Such beautiful photos!! I love them all. I wish I lived closer...this is definitely something I would love to attend!!

    God Bless,

  21. Oh my goodness, I have her book in my office library! Sounds like such a fun evening...enjoy!

  22. You had me at French Blue. Love this blog..love...love...love..... xox Alexandra
