The lovely Miss Rachel flew out last week to help me furnish and decorate La Maisonnette...isn't she a dear? She's been such a help already as she helps me create the vision I've slowly pieced together over the past few months. While it's a lot of work putting my kids in the car for hours at a time, we are having a blast anyway (of course!) and trying to come up with creative ways to make it fun for the kids too. Any tips are welcome :)
When she arrived from the US, I trained up to Paris to pick her up and spend a day and a half scoping out places in Paris that might have a few things on my list. She mentioned that we had to stop by the acclaimed "merci" and see what the hype was all about. I cannot tell you how happy I am with this decision! "Merci" is most certainly being added to my list of “must-sees” in Paris. The fact that I found kitchen lighting and a Tolix stool for La Maisonette made it a particularly sweet experience.
p.s. If you’re a Tolix fan as I am, this is as close to heaven as you’ll get.
