Paris....a Christmas ornament

Bonjour mes amies! 

If you have walked this journey with me for a while, you likely know we live in Canada.  Here, French is one of two official languages, yet contrary to popular belief, not everyone speaks it.  It is however taught in schools as a second language course and there are French Immersion schools (such as the one our children attend) where most of the curriculum is taught in French.

Being exposed to an almost exclusive French curriculum means our kiddies are beautifully fluent.  I love listening to them speak French, even though they don't do so very often.  Perhaps one day when we travel to France they will serve as our translators.

But for now, I'm sharing a little bit of Paris (read: 'Paree') with you here at home.  I made two different versions of the winter wonderland bulb of last year (go here to see it). 

 A pretty silver one that resembles a snow globe...

...and a very fancy Ooh-la-la, golden one.

I'm working on a little ornament series similar to last years, where I will show how I made 
these little guys.  I hope you will join me. 

Merci beaucoup et au revoir! 

much love,


  1. I love everything French after visiting this year and I just adore this! so cute :)

    Bee happy x

  2. its gorgeous lucy i was thinking only last night about making something simular i was going to cut the bottom of a bauble off to make a snow globe.
    i love what you have done xxxx

  3. Ps I just tried to cut the baubles with string and fire it was a bit of a craft fail. I cant wait to see how you made yours xxx

  4. This is so pretty! Thank you so much for sharing, I have everything I need to make one of these, I am going to try it out today.


  5. Merci beaucoup aussi, Luci.....
    je suis impatient....

  6. Beautiful!! My daughter is fluent too, and loves all things French, may have to make this for her :)

    xoxo, Tanya

  7. I love these. I am a confirmed Francophile and one of these would be lovely on my Christmas tree.

  8. Could these be any more gorgeous?? So soft and lovely.

  9. Those are so beautiful and delicate. I love the look of the soft, sparkly 'snow.'

  10. Those are just darling, Lu. I would love to speak French. I tried from the time I was in 9th grade on to get into French classes and because I was a business student I could not work it into my schedule. I even called here to see if there is anyone that teaches luck. I have been thinking of the Rosetta Stone course. I hear it is very good- xo Diana

  11. I love your blog. It better then any magazine out there! I can't wait to find out how to make this! I wish I knew French. I have a little French in my blood however my family is Spanish! The school that my children are going to attend teaches Latin so that will be cool!

  12. Love. LOVE.... Truly LOVE!!! I'll be waiting none too patiently too see the deets!

  13. Lucy ~ once again you've created a project that is simply stunning. Your ornament is so beautiful, and I just love what you've created and shared. I am so looking forward to your tutorial. Have you ever bleached these trees? I think you'd love that as well, as they turn a beautiful ivory.

  14. Oh I can't wait to see how you made those! Love them! Paris is on my top 5 list of places to go!

  15. I'm lucky enough to be living in France at the moment (not Paris mind, in Brittany). I wish it would snow, it would make it a lot more magical! Looking forward to seeing how you made this! Bella x
