I was invited on a trip by the French Tourism Board to visit some towns in Northern France for a week. It was such a special trip and I feel so grateful I got to go. I was traveling with Nicole, Dave, Carol and Nadia. I arrived at Charles DeGaulle around lunch. France has such a good train infrastructure. It was so easy to get from the airport to Reims because the train station left from the same airport terminal as where my plane landed. The high speed train got us there in less than an hour. So fast! Reims is a very old town in France and is where among other things champagne was invented and is home to the famous Reims cathedral (where most of the French kings were coronated.) It is beautiful town and there was so much to do.

I’m happy to announce my partnership with eBay! I realized some of my favorite things I own are things I’ve bought from eBay over the years. So I went around my house and took pictures of some of my most cherished items for the collage below. (click through below for the whole post) I love eBay and use it constantly, for everything from hard-to-find-vintage items to new shoes or electronics. I even bought my little red car off eBay! Here are some of my current favorite collections I’ve scoured for on eBay based on my favorite purchases! Vintage Cars | Wood Toys | Alarm Clocks

One of my favorite unexpected craft supplies are the foil baking sheets available at grocery stores. They are so affordable and versatile! This time I’ve used them to make these simple night sky mobiles – wouldn’t they be fun for a space party? I made a few of rocket party poppers to go with it. So fun!
Did you know watermelons are 91% water? You will only need a cup of water to dip your paintbrush in for these watermelon place cards. Perfect for National Watermelon Day – August 3rd! These could also make a festive garland – instead of putting a name on the cards, just fold them over some string and use tape or glue to secure. Happy Watermelon Day! (PS – Watermelon favors!)
