You meet such nice people when you blog. Valerie sent me the winter issue of Marie Claire Idees. It doesn't arrive here in the U.S. until mid December if you are lucky to find it. Thank you so much Valerie for sending this from France. She also enclosed a very charming little calendar. There are so many pages of eye candy in it. I would really love to attempt the cute advent calendar in the beginning pages. I'm off now to plot some projects!!
