La Vie est Belle
in other words
"Life is Beautiful"
It's the title of a gorgeous book I picked up
I saw the book and flipped through it to
see all of the marvelous photos.
It was love at first sight.
Still, I didn't buy it right away.
I walked out of the store.
A few days later, I still had some of the images
floating around in my head.
I wanted MORE!
I went and bought the book.
It was the magical merging of two things
I absolutely love: books and almost all things French.
I love the soft colors on the cover,
so I decided to display the book on my coffee table.
Soon after I purchased my new book,
I received a gift from a family that I know
(I was the teacher for both of the children in the family).
It is a candle
(which, by chance, is also from Anthropologie).
It is called "Volcano"...
and it smells divine.
It is my favorite scented candle EVER.
In addition to the scent,
I also like its pretty gray jar.
I placed the candle on a metal "doily"
that I purchased in Provence, France
about 2 years ago.
I added this to my coffee table, too.
Now, I have a beautiful table...
and a beautiful life.
