Vertige is a beautiful small florist shop in the rue de Sévigné in Paris' Marais quarter. The shop front looked so lovely and inviting for Christmas, and had a little group of Sapins de Noël (Christmas trees) waiting on the trottoir, to be brought into the apartments of the neighborhood.
One of them is off to its new home...

Meanwhile back home, the Christmas preparations are well under way. Some decorations I haven't used in years needed a makeover,
and I found the perfect spray for the job, 'Gold Hardcore 2' by Montana Colors. The color is beautifully rich and warm, and the nozzle precise. A surprise find (I bought it in a Quicksilver store while waiting for DS to finish in the changing room) at a great price (3.70 EUR)...it's the best gold spray I've ever used.

With the festive mood catching on, I reached for my black and gold Brazil Maxi Twilly today.
I was glad to have my first pair of reading glasses when spraying the decorations and wrapping presents, what a difference they make!
