These adorable buttons and appliques are made by Blumenthal and Lansing, an American designer and manufacturer that has been in operation since 1877. We’ll keep you posted when we have them up for sale, probably next week. Get your scissors and thread ready!

This morning I went shopping at Forever 21 in Anaheim, CA, which is two full stories and rumored to be their largest store in Southern California. (Apparently San Francisco has a tri-level!)  I was charmed by the many t-shirts they offered with French text and French-inpired graphics, like this:

Many of the shirts had Eiffel towers and proclaimed love for Paris. A few had racier slogans, such as “Qui est-ce qui t’excite?”

Just goes to show that France is IN, and Francophiles are everywhere!
