Knitwear is back!
The weather has been turning cooler and I've been listing handwarmers.  They are back in the shop for the season.  Plenty of colors, snuggly and warm.  I've made several pairs as Christmas gifts and they are always loved

The shop needs something new- spread cloths have been the most requested so I'll start work on those.

Friday Night Prosperity List #2: London and Paris

I did a bunch of things I've always wanted to do last month.

First plane ride, first time outside of the US, first trip to Europe, but 2nd time speaking French to a native!

Here's what I loved in London and Paris.

Berthillon ice cream * the Eiffel friggin tower * people that start speaking spanish so you can have a real conversation! * the view from Sacre Couer * subways * free croissants in the morning * late night meal of cheese, wine and a baguette on the Seine * macarons * the cool little shops on St. Louis * the view on the Thames * cozy pub decor * Here Comes the Night by Arcade Fire taking off from Newark * the people from all over the world we met

I've got my little Eiffle tower snowglobe and Mind the Gap buttons, 2 original artworks, amazing duty free booze cookies, tons of pictures.
I'm damn well bringing a jacket and waterproof, grippy shoes to London next time.  But Paris is a go anytime.

Have you been here or are planning a trip to somewhere you've never been!  Post what you're excited about or share some tips.
