Fabulously French - Feathered Nest Friday!

Fabulously French!

I made this PARIS banner the other day. 
I was at the dollar store (for something else) and found crepe paper (2 rolls for $1), some "flocked" scrapbook paper ($4) , and a package of white lace doilies ($1). 
I had no idea at the time what I was going to do with the materials but knew I could create something wonderful.  This is what I came up with.
I love it!
On my last trip to our local flea market I purchased a wonderful old French hat box ($20).  It is stamped "Paris" on the bottom and has little gold Fleur de lis all over.  It's in excellent condition.
Inside the box was a hat with millinery flowers and a lace scarf/shawl. 
What a bargain.

Have a nice weekend and stay cool! 
It is sooooooo HOT here!
