Do You Dream Of France?

Do you dream about going to France? 

Wouldn't you love to visit Paris?

Do you dream of shopping the brocantes/flea markets and finding wonderful vintage linens like these?

Or finding a collection of these?

How about finding a wonderful chippy iron day bed like this?

And seeing places like this?

Well, if you are a blogger and have this dream it can come true this year.

My friend and fellow blogger Kimberly Hites is hosting a fantastic trip to France to see the French countryside from Paris to Normandy and to shop, shop, shop.
All the details are on her blog La belle Epoque. You can scroll down her page and click on the brochure information. The price can't be beat for what is included and for a whole week.

I'm saving and going and sure hope we can get a few more to join us.



All photos were borrowed from my friend Kim's blog to share the info.

  1. Kim, I've always dreamed of taking my daughter to Paris...I haven't been able to make it but am so glad that she has. When she was in high school, her best friend's parents invited her to join them in a European tour. It was the trip of a lifetime. She and her best friend had a memorable time and I didn't worry because her friend's parents were there with them the whole time. And best part...it didn't cost her (or me) a dime, her best friend's parents paid for the entire trip, I will be forever grateful that they did that for her and she got to see not only Paris, but most of Europe. Thanks for sharing this post, I will check it out.

  2. What a wonderful opportunity! You'll love it Kim - I used to go every year for business ( until 3 years ago ) and miss it like I can't tell you!!!
    The only suggestion I am going to give you - and one I give everyone who is going - is you must eat one night at the L'entrecote!!!!
    Hugs,
    Suzan

  3. I sooooo want to do this, Kim! Too much on our financial plate this year, though -- maybe next year! I'll have to live vicariously through you and Shirley. :)

  10. Oh Kim, you will love France. I spent 10 days there and really enjoyed it.....Take lots of photos and large luggage so you can stash your purchases in it!

  11. Good for you! I recently traveled to Europe for the first time...2 weeks in Italy...being a small town girl, we spent a bit of time in Rome and Venice, but also visited small towns in Tuscany and on the coast. We spent three days on the Amalfi Coast in a tiny fishing village population 900. We stayed in an old house built into the cliffs overlooking the sea. It was like a step back in time. I loved seeing the authentic daily life in the small towns. I would love to do a similar trip in France. For what it's worth, I think venturing off the beaten path makes for an amazing experience. Can NOT wait to hear more details.

  18. Not my cup of tea, but I don't enjoy shopping as much as you. I'm sure it will be beautiful and as someone else mentioned, I'd be one to venture off the beaten path. It would be a trip I'd rather do with hubby though. I'll just buy off ebay LOL. The food, I am sure, will be divine!

    This looks like a fabulous trip! Is it your first time to Paris? I have been going for over 30 years and I enjoy it more and more each time.
