My French Life













































I present these questions for your consideration: Can a book make one weep? Can it excavate forgotten dreams buried inside a hurried soul? Can this book flirt and charm and whisk you off your feet; give you goosebumps and a cool chill and warm sensation at the back of your neck all at the same time? Can a book feel like an inviting (upholstered) antique quilt or inspire a human to take action - to chase the goals of yesterday? Can this book make you sense a flutter, heart skip, determination (to speed up or slow down) or an inner excitement? Can it make you feel alive (again)?
I present my answer to all of these: Yes. Vicki Archer's book arrived in a special wrap just for me all the way from her 'French Life' to my 'Canadian Life' - a special thank you gift for moi - can you imagine how I feel? Ooh la la....I am so honored and I must confess - I want to lock it away in a secret place with my other prized possessions so no one else can touch it. I want it cherished and pampered for a lifetime and beyond. It is the most incredible book I have ever read, touched, owned. And yes, it is upholstered. The book itself is padded. Imagine that.
Vicki, Thank You so much for your kind gesture. Your words and Carla's photography are two things that have imprinted my creativity forever. I hope everyone around the world will be able to share my feelings & joy about your book. xo

It's a journey. An adventure. A romantic story of a dream fulfilled. Be open to the process. There are many lessons in between the lines.

I present this question for your consideration: Can I send you my entire collection to shoot? ;)Truly inspired! Love to see my ring living on in your work!
Can you tell me where you acquired the 3 row stretch coin pearl ring? Avon?

LIBERTY POST EDITOR said...

Amanda, Yes, I'd love to shoot your current and future collections! Yes, the ring was from Avon ('mark' I think)
