Time for another Shopping List! This week, I’m still in holiday mode. We sat chatting as a family the other afternoon – if we could go anywhere for the day, where would we go? My choice? Well, it would have to be The Old Winter Palace Hotel, Luxor, Egypt...but that’s a long way to go just for one day!
So, this is my runner-up...gay Paris! Romantic, beautiful, chic, dramatic, a bit saucy (!), arty, eclectic and stimulating. It’s a good few years since I was last there, so in a way this little selection is an ode to that intoxicating city– enjoyed but not forgotten. I know it’s there, waiting for me....
These items are full of fanciful 'Frenchness' , aren’t they? They are quirky, decadent and evocative – and most importantly, beautifully handmade......I just wish I had a hope of squeezing into those cheeky hipsters – I love ‘em!

Going shopping today? Check out etsy before you go. You’ll be amazed at what you find there!

Please take a look at some other great etsy sellers who blog, listed on the right (Shopping List Saturday:Check Out Their Lists!), for more fab shopping ideas. Would you like to join in with this meme? Just let me know - we'd love to have you!
