Blowing your heart away

  3. j'adore les circus steps dommage-que-ce-soit-si-cher, une idée à piquer!

  4. Oh those circus stairs would be great to display my shoes :)

  5. Oh Deb I think I am as much in love with your faves as you. I love La Vestiaire de Jeanne as well, but I'm too afraid my kids will race down to the river and build a dam in those beautiful clothes, much like they do now after I've asked them to change shoes and clothes for play stuff... Sigh - maybe as they get older, or if I move back to the city??

  6. You outdid yourself on those Faves.
