Paris Daily Photo.) And I used my favorite standby overlay from Jerry of ShadowHouse Creations.
In the meantime, my mind is working overtime. I am a "go with the flow" sort of person. But I think I'm going to have to become more focused and think ahead to get my 12,000 new customers streaming in.... SO....here's what I've got on my mind.
Let's officially dub this Paris Week with a gift giveaway and winner announced Sunday night.
Rules: leave a comment, jump through 5 hoops, clap your hands, click your heels, chew 4 pieces of Double Bubble pink bubble gum at one time, visit 10 other French-themed blogs, link back to my blog and then....hehe! OK, just joshing. Seriously, LEAVE A COMMENT during Paris Week. Any time, any post, between now and Sunday night 9 pm Pacific time. No more than one comment per day per person. I'll use a random number generator thingie and that lucky commenter will be the winner of a batch of vintage Paris postcards. Batch as in a couple dozen or more....These are postcards mailed in the 1950s and '60s. Not antiques, but almost:)
Next week: Postcard images that I consider 'under-loved.' Images that have me scratching my head as to why it's not the next big thing. Images I adore but are mostly snubbed. I'm gonna gather up an assortment of these and then issue a challenge to make an ATC, gift card, greeting card, journal page, whatever that you will mail to me. I haven't decided at the moment how the winner will be chosen (name in the hat, popular vote or simply my own Napoleonic arbritrary whim....) But that winner will receive this darling pink and gold unused antique book of postcards. It looks orangey peach here, but trust me when I say it's pink!
Way toward the back is an Eiffel Tower postcard:) And there's a great street scene on Boulevard de Italiens along with 10 more Paris landmarks. Each postcard is separated with an onion paper slip.
I apologize for not being able to scan in more but the book is so 'unused' I don't want to break the spine and I can't manage the maneuvering with my one arm....It's a gem of ephemera! As the contest nears, I'll post my address.
Until then, will you continue to be my FrenchKissed ambassadors and spread the word about my

Ever how you can spread the news, to help me reach my ultimate goal of 12,000 new customers this year, will be appreciated BEAUCOUP:)
there is SO much more i'd love to yak with you about .... BUT... the trauma i referred to last week is continuing as i contact the police from here to portland in an effort to find my nephew who is mentally ill and off his medicine. it is a long story, it is sad one but i'm still hoping for a good ending as i track his bank account, play detective, connect with compassionate people and deal with those who can't help because they are bound by the fucking stupid LAWS:)
PS dear potential 12,000 new customers, i don't use the F word in my blog too often....
