time for a change, chandee... the Paris color project

most of you know that i decorated my
charming chandee with lavender and 
baseballs for July and August. it was my own little
subtle red, white and blue, and my sometimes
passion to place the ridiculous with the sublime!

the baseballs, were from my son's childhood collection.
he can tell you where each was caught,
or given to him by one of his favorite players., it's goodbye baseballs.

i removed the bundles of lavender, harvested
from the backyard. they have filled the room with fragrance
for about three weeks.

to fill in the blanks, i found these wonderful
"Postcards from Paris"


the images are from Nichole's
Paris color project. i was lucky to catch her
two for one postcard sale!

the sale is still going today at her Etsy shop


now our chandee is French chic once more,
as it reflects Nichole's Paris color green!

(i kept the little bundles that i made with Maria's lavender!)

the dining area is still in transition.
with the chandee's now all about coffee in the sunbeams
 on this perfect  PacNWest Summer day!
