Snowflakes That Stay on Your Nose and Eyelashes

Oh yeah, we are blog "circling" again!  Today...I give you "a few of my favorite things!"  Sure...I would love to send this blog post DIRECTLY to the North Pole...but these things are pretty much my favorite things year round!  Some I can easily acquire...others are a wispy fantasy leaving me to sigh gently and send my eyes upwards towards my fairy godmother!

I have recently allowed wine and champagne back into my life.  The headaches have subsided and so I am back to enjoying some good bubbly!  My current favorite?  Who else but "The Widow Clicquot."

And who doesn't want a gorgeous set of champagne glasses to enjoy your sparkly spirit?  This is the type of champagne glass I prefer.  I once heard this style was the brainchild of one of the Louis' for his court.  Not to get too racy here...but the shape was apparently inspired by the bosom of a woman!  How very French-y excessive-y, right?

And in keeping with all things French...I do love these candles!  My favorite fragrances are "fig" and "tuberose."

I love this so much I want to marry it!  In turquoise, please!

Leaving France and taking a boat ride up the English Channel to my favorite bath and body treats of all time!  Something about peppercorn in a bottle!  Yum!  Leaves just enough of a masculine hint behind to make you swoony and dreamy about your favorite guy all day long.


Okay...back on the boat...back down to France....Where do I start?  I have a round wood table.  It begs me, everyday, in it's raspy, woodsy voice, "Please festoon me with Louis Ghost Chairs!  Four, please!  Oh...and a worn Persian rug, as well."

And finally...put this on the list of "It will never happen, Patty, but it is nice to dream!" Diamonds by The Yard by Elsa Peretti at Tiffany & Co.

Now hop on over to An Optimistic Heathen by Amanda Reyna for her list of Favorite Things!
