I'm getting concerned. My 100th post is coming up in the near future...everybody has such fab giveaways, I'm going to have to really think about what to do to celebrate the milestone!

Speaking of coming up to my 100th post, I really have to mention how grateful I am to have so many loyal followers! I know that I should welcome each new follower - it's only polite, right! But, I must admit: I just never notice the blog follower list "over there." But, I do appreciate all 42 of you that have arrived in the past month ... I'm glad that you enjoy my bog and hope you will continue to do so. I'll do my best to not get dreary, melancholy, religious or political...I'm verbose enough without those working their way in!

And, just one last thing. I found this poem and I thought I'd share it with you.

Paris

Paris
a wonderful city
a place for lovers
Paris
a city to dream wild
Paris
in that river the boats are moving with lovers inside
watching that beautiful sky above the river
and the moon from that beautiful sky
is shining in
the river
Paris
a city that never sleeps
Paris
romance is in the air
Paris
the lovers are feeling the love that are in the air
Paris
that smell of the roses the lovers can smell
Paris
this is the sign that spring is here
Paris

....Aldo Kraas (Sao Paulo, Brazil)

I find it simple and charming and unaffected - as love in Paris should be!

Well, back to working on my Flea Market Friday offerings! Be sure to check back tomorrow!
