LIGHT YOUR WORLD WITH BEAUTIFUL CANDLES.....MAKE YOUR HOME A SHOW PIECE! THE BEAUTY OF CANDLES AND CANDLE LIGHT.














BEAUTIFUL CANDLE LIGHT....BEAUTIFUL WAYS TO LIGHT YOUR HOME. I COLLECT CANDLE STICKS AND ANTIQUES ITALIAN AND FRENCH TOLE AND CLASSIC CANDLE HOLDERS. WHAT BETTER WAY TO LIGHT YOUR HOME THAN SOFT CANDLE LIGHT. IT ADDS SUCH MYSTIQUE AND GLAMOUR TO ANY HOUSE WITH IT'S SIMPLE , SOFT GLOW. THERE IS NOTHING QUITE LIKE THE LIGHT FROM A CANDLE.....SO MUCH MYSTERY. IT IS A SIMPLE, YET VERY ELEGANT WAY TO DECORATE. I JUST CANNOT GET ENOUGH OF IT THROUGHOUT MY HOME. WHEN YOU ENTERTAIN OVER THE HOLIDAYS...OFFER AS MUCH CANDLE LIGHT AS YOU CAN. IT WILL BRING SUCH WARMTH AND BEAUTY TO YOUR HOME! SOMETIMES I JUST SIT AND LOOK AT MY VINTAGE TOLE CANDELABRA WHICH I BOUGHT FROM JODI MARTIN DOWN IN OLD TOWN MARBLEHEAD. I JUST LOVE THE ITALIAN CANDLE WALL HOLDERS I BOUGHT DOWN AT CEST LA VIE FOR MY DINNING ROOM. I PICKED UP MY TOLE CANDLESTICKS AT AN ANTIQUE DEALER OUT OF PARIS. I WILL ALWAYS FIND ROOM FOR THESE CLASSIC, TIMELESS PIECES WHICH HOLD BEAUTIFUL LIGHT!
ALWAYS LOOKING FOR BEAUTIFUL THINGS FOR ALL OF YOU!
LOVE TO SHARE!
ENJOY!

MY FRENCH OBSESSION AND ALL THINGS FRENCH....






RUBANESQUE BOUTIQUE ARTISAN ANTIQUE FRENCH SILK JACQUARD RIBBON JEWELRY.

I AM ALWAYS ON THE HUNT FOR FRENCH ITEMS TO DECORATE MY HOME, OR TO WEAR AS CLOTHING OR JEWELRY. I LOVE ALL THINGS FROM FRANCE AS YOU CAN SEE FROM MY PAST BLOGS. I FEEL NO ONE CAN DECORATE WITH SUCH STYLE AS THE FRENCH. A WOMAN NAMED RUTH WHO IS A FELLOW BLOGGER FROM FRANCE STARTED THIS BOUTIQUE MAKING THESE BEAUTIFUL BRACELETS THIS FALL, WHEN SHE LAUNCHED HER BOUTIQUE RUBANESQUE.
INSIDE A DUSTY CARDBOARD BOX, NESTLED AND FORGOTTEN TREASURES HIDDEN FOR YEARS IN A DRAWER IN HER HUSBANDS GRANDMOTHERS OFFICE IN ST ETIENNE. A SELECTION OF PRECIOUS RIBBONS FROM HER HIS FAMILY'S SILK FACTORY OUTSIDE LYON, FRANCE. GIFTED TO HER, SHE LOVINGLY CRAFTS ONE OFF HANDMADE JEWELRY CUFFS, COMBINING THESE TURN -OF-THE-CENTURY RIBBONS, HEAVENLY LADEN WITH GOLD THREAD AND HAND TRIMMED SILK VELVET, WITH SWAROVSKI CRYSTALS EMBELLISHMENTS TO BRING YOU LUXE, CONTEMPORARY PIECES WITH A TOUCH OF OLD SCHOOL GLAMOUR. YOU CAN PURCHASE THESE BEAUTIFUL BRACELETS LIKE I DID FROM RUBANESQUE BOUTIQUE SHOP THROUGH ETSY.
I BOUGHT THE DARK PURPLE BRACELET PICTURED HERE IN THE FIRST PHOTO. THESE ARE THE NICEST PIECES I HAVE SEEN IN A WHILE.THEY WILL BE FEATURED IN FRENCH VOGUE!

LOVE YOUR LITTLE FRENCH GIRL
