Be My Guest to Chicagos One of A Kind Show


I love the holiday season! Its festive and cheerful and of course my favorite show of the year is during the holiday season. For the last two years I have participated in the One of A Kind Show. Its located at the Merchandise Mart with 600 artists in 4 fun filled days. I recommend blocking out a good amount of time to watch the show because there are so many talented artists under one roof! My booth is 2068 and I would love if you stopped by. Here is a link to the free one of a kind ticket

I will be selling iphone cases, prints, wood blocks and gallery wrap canvas.

Postcards from Paris


Paris is romantic with each detail. What would your postcard from Paris look like?

2 months and counting!!

Paris Rooftops from the Arc De Triumph


When people travel to Paris, the Eiffel tower is a top destination on their list. If you don’t prebuy your tickets you can stand in line for hours waiting to get to the top. I will admit I have been there. The sunset at the top is beautiful! But I think one of the best views is from the Arc de Triumph especially the Paris rooftops. There are a few other views I have on my list for February. Where is your favorite view of Paris?

Happy Thanksgiving to you All! Thanks for following. Everything in my etsy shop with be 25% off on November 23 – 26.

Happy Holidays


In January I spent time traveling throughout Europe. I was lucky to find that most of the lights and decorations were not taken down right away. The streets of Geneva Switzerland and Venice, Italy are in this post with their windows and lights. Happy Holidays to you all!

St Chapelle Stained Glass


My first trip to Paris I had tons of people recommend that I see the stained glass windows at St Chapelle. If you have a chance its worth the wait in line. I suggest you go on a sunny day so you can fully experience the stained glass filled room.

Ricardo Enoteca


Ricardo Enoteca an extension of Ricardo Trattoria opened in my neighborhood. It officially opens tomorrow but I was lucky enough to attend a preview night. The place was packed with friends and customers of Ricardo Trattoria in support of the new restaurant. People have been anxiously awaiting the opening of this restaurant for a long time. If you remember back there was a fire in the space when it was very close to opening and they had to start from the beginning again. It was well worth the wait and the food was great from start to finish. Thank you Ricardo Enoteca!

Dreaming of Paris


I really don’t like packing! I have piles to trash, pack, and give away. Not only am I packing up my apartment but I am also packing up my business… There is never a good time to move. This month is BUSY and at the beginning of next month is my biggest show of the year the One of A Kind Show. But at the end of the month will mean just two months until Paris and I will have a view similar to this. I guess it makes it all worth while!
