    It's that time of the afternoon when i need an energy boost…
    Don't laugh, but here are my names however lame they may be.

    "French Flirtations"


    "We Frolicked French Streets"


    "When In France, Do As Lola Does"


  2. Lola aime Paris
    (Lola loves Paris)

    Teryl aime Paris too and your pictures make me die to go back! I was last there in 1992!

  3. peggy aplSEEDS says:

    how about "oh là là, Lola!"

  4. Jill La Fleur says:

    Just discovered your blog and love it! So charming and right up my alley. I have to say, the contest idea is so sweet…just love your writing style and photos and look forward to continuing to follow your blog.
    Okay, so the simple idea I came up with for you is
    Paris…La Vie En Rose
    I've always been drawn to Paris myself (yes, La Fleur is my real name!) and would love to live there someday for even a very short while. Okay, I would take just a vacation..who are we kidding!
    La Vie En Rose always struck me as a great way to see/live life…it essentially means "life in pink" (or living/seeing life through rose colored glasses). Sounds like a nice way to live each day!

    Hope you make it back again soon!
    Oh, I also like
    Paris..à la prochaine! (Until we meet again!)

  5. carol in ca says:

    how about:
    le fait de faire trébucher autour de Paris? (tripping around Paris)

  6. Okay…how about…'SECRETS OF A GIRL IN PARIS….'…that's all i got!

  7. I already submitted a couple suggestions, but this one came to me while I was at the kitchen sink, so it must be brilliant; "2010, a Paris Odessey." Like I said, brilliant, non? I seriouly want to win, so I'm still keeping my thinking cap on!

  8. Okay so…

    I really, REALLY, really…
    desperately want to win this giveaway. And because I'm totally shameless, I'll use this opportunity to say that I've never, ever won anything before.


    This would be a magical first for me– kinda like your Jean-Pierre.

    Um.. hows about

    "Cigies and Snails and Smokin' Hot Males"

    Ended up painting my home your "faded silk" and I'm in love with it. Thanks for your endless inspiration. Luvs!

    Delicious JOY! your gifts are Delicious Joy! your blog is Delicious Joy! your trip was Delicious Joy! Thanks for sharing with us all!

  10. My wonderful husband has no urge what-so-ever to see Paris. I have been troubled by this, feeling that someday if I were to make it across the pond, It would be taking my love kicking and groaning. That was until I read your post and immediately made pact with my very best girlfriend that we would one day share an innocent kiss between friends at the top of the Sacre-Cour. Thank you for sharing.

    imagine my delight and surprise as i happened upon your blog for the first time!
    imagine my delight and surprise in finding that there is another woman out there who is as fond of the eifel tower as i!!
    you see, the eifel tower symbolizes something very vital in my life…dreams.
    happy dreams. perfect dreams.
    so no matter what my life may hold at the time, way deep down in the corner of my heart, i still have the eifel tower and my dreams!
    i have started a small collection of eifel tower "treasures" to keep the dreams alive. what would we be without our dreams?
    whether or not i ever get to paris to behold the tower with my very own eyes remains uncertain…
    but one this is certain.
    reading your story is like living my dream. it's perfect.
    so my entry for the title is-
    "a pocketful of paris."

  12. I have to apologize for not being up to the task of naming your trip. I can barely come up with my kids names, today! But, I have so enjoyed reading about your adventures and hope that one day I, too, am able to adventure like this!

  13. ode to madeleine peyroux : call it:
    j'ai deux amours, mon pays et Paris..
    translation (I have two loves, my country and paris.)
    listen here:

    oooooohhhh I want that ring baddddd

  14. Blissful Blisters 🙂

  15. Oh what a fun and exciting trip. I'm not very creative but what about: Belles and Beaux. I know. Lame. I'd still love the chance to win. Thanks for sharing. Blessings, SusanD

  16. First off, I am sooo jealous of your trip! I dream of going to Paris some day and looking at your gorgeous photos has just increased my longing. And this giveaway is so great! Such pretty things 🙂

    As far as a name all I can think of is "Paris in the Springtime"…it's simple but chic (at least I think so :))…And the song "I Love Paris" from Ella Fitzgerald talks about loving Paris in the Springtime so I thought it could be the theme song 🙂

  17. Laura Ingalls Gunn says:

    Remember in 101 Dalmations when Cruella screeches out: "Oh, it's too easy…"
    Yeah, doesn't apply here but I need that ring. Need it.

    I am scrolling through the comments and I don't see it.

    So here it is: Ménage à trois. The literal translation is "A household of three". Get your minds out of the gutter people.

  18. Girl's Echante In The City of Paris.How is this for a title.Thank-you 4 sharing your stories.They always put a smile on my face.Looking forward to the next chapter.have a great weekend!!

  24. Kim Hansen says:

    I am freaking out! I have been consumed for two days trying to think of something! I am a photographer and want those actions:)

    I think it should be "My French Fairytale" But written in French? Hmmm. Simple but cute!

  25. I am so jealous of your adventure in Paris. What a dream come true for you! I'm not so creative with titles, but dreaming in Paris sounds good, however you say that in French. I would adore the necklace and dream of Paris as long as I was wearing it. Thanks for the chance to win. Marla

  26. I just bragged about you and your giveaway on my blog. Marla

  27. I commented awhile ago, but I don't see it here. Sorry if you get this twice.

    Here is the best name my tired, uncreative brain could come up with: Girls Just Want To Have Fun – Paris Style!

  39. I am going to Paris in June with two girl friends and am loving your photos and commentary.

    I am currently at a loss for a trip title but thinking I will need to come up with one for mine as well…dbl drats as I can't think of anything clever at the moment and I am not sure more time will help.

  40. Laura King says:

    I feel so happy when I read your blog.
    I admire your creativity and photography!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win your amazing goodies!
    I don't speak French, so I can't think of a catchy title with French words but her is my try,
    Simply Paris.
    You did so much, but all in all it was Paris!

  41. What a beautiful website!

  42. What a lovely gesture! I’d love to win these beauties! I also have a great love for Paris…anything French for that matter! 😉 I used to help a friend out years ago who had this little bar hidden deep in centre town of Paris…it was a magical time!

    The name I thought to call your trip to Paris is:” Her name is Lola…” you know from that Barry Manilow song?

    Keep those stories and lovely photo’s comming please?
