Paris Trip - Vol 1

It's been two months and a bit since I returned from my French Trip.
Finally, I am starting to post my travel to France. It was wonderful trip and  can't wait to return next Spring.

We left Melbourne to Paris via Seoul where My little princess and I stopped over for a few days to catch up with family and friends. My DH left Melbourne to Paris via Singapore. 

We met up at the hotel where we stayed for 3 nights in Paris.

This is the view from our plane, just about the land

Finally we are in France after 11 hours of flying from Seoul.


We have arranged the pick up service to our hotel in Paris.
It was so so so congested, but we were glad because we were in Paris. 

My first photo of Paris building. 


We arrived at hotel late but I had a very special meeting waiting for me,
I met up with Delana  from http://delana-dujour.blogspot.com.au/

I don't have any photo , darn it..

Anyway, check out her blog, and her new website for provincial goodies.

This was where we stayed for 3 nights in Paris.
It is located at Paris- Republique, conveniently located. Not too expensive..
Clean and roomy.

This was the view from our hotel room.
there was construction everywhere. 

Hotel Court yard.

We left the hotel, and are hunting for our first breakfast in  Paris.

Rue du Temple.

Our first breakfast in Paris.
My little princess and DH had Croque monsier and I had breakfast of the day.

After the breakfast, we were on our way to Musée Du Louvre
My DH & Little Princess 

 Rue du Temple , Pairs. 

After the breakfast, our family walked and walked  all the way to Musée Du Louvre.
We spent most of the day  at the Louvre.


I will come back soon with our day in Musée Du Louvre.
Wish you Merry Christmas !!

Good bye Paris, Seoul & Hello Melbourne.

Hello my blog land friends, I am back home after 31 days of jet setting, driving here and there.

My little princess and I left Melbourne to Seoul on 15 Sept, on the way to France.
It was a great to stop over in Seoul, caught up with friends  and rest some before our journey to France. I met up with my DH in Paris and our journey begun.

We were in Paris for 4 days before we left to Loire valley country side with a big mission.
I will share with you all.

We  My Hubby drove almost 3000 km in 14 days. That's pretty good use of rental car, don't you think?

I just returned yesterday. I missed my home, sweet home but I already miss France and Korea.  I saw a lot, I experienced a lot. I am so inspired & fully recharged .  I will be blogging about my french & Korea trip.

Please come and join me.

Meet my Rainbow French Arm Chair - AKA Julie Chair.

Finally almost finished( still need gimp  to hide millions of staples) the Custom order French Arm Chair. It took me almost a month to finish this beauty, because of all the distractions.. (yes, excuses, excuses.)

I am very happy with how it turned out.
My client loves it. 
She calls it " Julie Chair"

I am linen kind of gal. not multi colors fabrics gal.
but this chair is so adorable.

What do you think?

France, Here I come - 7 Weeks to go

Still experiencing cold winter days in Melbourne.
A lot of things happened last few weeks, however highlights of all is to going to FRANCE for 3 weeks. hooray~~~
My DH and little princess is coming with me, so that's even better.

My dreaming of owning a french property is getting closer and closer.. I hope to secure something this trip but it that doesn't happen I get to travel to France more often.. whichever I can't complain too much.

I will do some French flea Market buying as well.. can't wait to do this..

In the meantime, there are so many things need to be taken care of before I leave..

This is where we will be staying in Paris ... I initially booked self contains apartment, however my little princess wants to stay at "FANCY" Hotel, so her wish was granted.

I will do some of this in Paris.. while little one and DH is checking out Museums etc.. Lucky me.

 After we leave Paris, we will be driving to  Loire Valley, where I want to buy a small house.

I was lucky to find this wonderful small gite (cottage ) and this will be out home for a while.

While we are in the region of Chateaus in Loire valley, I wanted to stay a couple of nights in Chateau. The photo of chateau is where we are going to stay. My little one and DH think it might be spooky.. (lol), but I gotta do what I gotta do. 

After Loire Valley and here and there, we will be heading back to Paris but we need to stop by at one more place before we leave France.. DISNEYLAND, PARIS. Thanks to little princess. 

This is our home for a few days in Disneyland. when I booked this hotel, I didn't realized that it was just opposite from the Europe's biggest Outlet Mall. I just got luck again.

So I will be doing some last minute shopping I guess..

I can't wait to take a trip to France, bonus to this trip I get to go to Korea to meet some of my friends and family on stop overs.

Hope you are all well.

Silver wares Collection.

I am organizing house at the moment while Remembering what Lady Liza Campbell once said.

" Possession are such a burden, I long for less"

I think I have too many of everything. I definitely need to declutter what I don't need.

I gathered all my silver wares one place. I collected them over the years.

Organizing is a good thing,

Have a great day! wherever you are
