Hello again everyone, thank you to the great response to my post yesterday. Although not many are brave enough to leave comments, there were more hits than I've seen in a long time on this blog. Oh ...without even hosting a giveaway, thank ya!.....

Just a quick post this morning, as I love participating in Kim Klassen's Texture Tuesday challenge. This week's challenge is "words" and looking through some of my photos I found these pictures that looked perfect to play with in Photoshop.....

I picked up these enamel letters (they are sold) and spelled my favorite city in the world to hang out in, why...PARIS...of course! All edited with various textures from Kim to give them an antique look. Since this is a fun post I kept the clickable images to a small size for most.....

I love Paris and have been fortunate to visit many a time and even live in for a couple summers in my youth. Here are just a couple of quick images that I took during my trip last Fall.....

Have a wonderful rest of the week my friends, don't be shy..... leave a comment so that I can come visit your blog....


  1. All of your photos are beautiful, Janet! And oh my, I really love the one of the Eiffel Tower. Maybe someday I can see it in person :)

  2. Hi Janet... love your PARIS! And I love your real Paris photos as well... I am never shy about leaving you a comment, as I love to visit you, and also love it when you visit me! I do believe you were the first blog I ever read, back when I did not even know what a blog really was, but I had found your shop through magazines and fallen in love with all of the beauty you create... hope you have a wonderful Summer day in sunny Florida... xoxo Julie Marie

  3. Great photos. I have only been to Paris once, but it was an awesome experience and I would go again in a heartbeat! There is so much to see and do there. Take care, Connie

  4. I love the letter...and your pictures. I must have missed your last post so off I go to read it. Have a wonderful day, Janet!


  5. Beautiful photos! Love the letters, but those last two photos just are awesome :)

  6. Janet... one WORD for you about this post - PRETTY!

  7. Oh, such loveliness! Those PARIS letters are to die for. I can see you adore Rosemary's sacred heart lockets, too. :)
    Thanks for the inspiration!

  8. I guess I missed your last post too?! I thought I had commented on the one about the canning jar chandy but I don't see my comment there either. If you do have word verification maybe I clicked off before that could take place.

    Anyway- Love your letters that spell Paris...and your photos.

    Speaking of spelling. My daughter called me laughing a day or so ago and said that she had opened up her little girl's backpack. In there was her homework with a big lettered page that said : Ready?

    S-P-E-L-I-N-G Test! I had my laugh for the day! xo Diana

  9. You love to "hang out" in Paris..you are too cute for words. I wish I could hang out there!

    Oooh la la, the Eiffel Tower photo is amazing... I seem to be fascinated with Paris these days, and your photos take me there! Thank you for sharing those today ~ Isn't Kim awsome? Love that girl! xo

  10. Beautiful texture and text here... :)

  11. Great shots. It's been many years since I've seen the Eiffel Tower, but this brings back memories.
