if i were napoleon, you could be my josephine


ok, so i have this idea to have a mademoiselle/madame french party on february 20th to celebrate the end of an era with our current book, and cheersing to our new prospects. think gruyere, edith piaf, croissants, chocolate mousse, framboise, love poems, brie, eiffel tower, crepes, caricatures, love, stars, moonlight, creme brulee, francoise, etc.

My proposed ideas so far: make french food of your choice to bring, chose an alternate french name for yourself (antoinette, etinne, claudette, marvella, blanchefleur), dress in full french attire wearing blue, white, red (not to be confused with red, white, and blue), berets, moustaches, photo portraits, caricatures by sarah (or whoever else can draw). we can sit around and read love poems from napoleon to josephine, fiddle faddle around with my mini accordion, romantic guitar soloing with possible humming. and one of the most important things, which you can either choose to embrace or reject, is to bring some form of art that you want to share, like ANY form of art. wether it be knitting, photos, jewelry, drawings, short stories, collages, anything your oui oui heart can muster. i feel overwhelmed by how much talent each one of you ladies has to offer, and i would love to see what everyone could come up with. please share your feelings on the matter.

bonne nuit!
