The books I'm lusting after

French Home



A Certain Slant of Light



Metrostop: Paris



Perfume: The Alchemy of Scent



Just when I get some way towards taming the wish list beast I find another four books to add. I am especially salivating about the Jean Claude Elena book which I read about courtesy of Now Smell This.

Oh, and I'm reading a dark history of Paris, and have the Ellena book on the "get" list.

I love books & magazines especially anything to do with french interiors.

I notice from your other blog that you are househunting in London, a friend of ours who is an artist is selling her flat - do you want to email me (leeannhawke@gmail.com) so that I can email you the details.

Hi Fabulously French, I do too, I have to stop myself buying home magazines and books so that I can attempt to afford an actual home!

The other blog is sadly rather neglected at the moment!

Yes I will e-mail you- I don't know if your friend's place will be in budget but if she's an artist I'm sure it's beautiful. Thanks! Rx

Hi Scentscelf- do you how great! how did you find it? It's such a creative idea for a story. I would love to borrow it but the postage might cost more than if I just buy it here. Do let me know what you think of it though! then I can order it.

A dark history of Paris sounds very intriguing, I love London and Paris books. I will look it up.

The Ellena book looks so exciting doesn't it! I'm not sure I can wait until the summer though!

Oh dear- now my list has just gotten longer! These look fab!

Rose said...

Daily, it's the perils of book shopping and reading blogs... the list just never seems to get shorter! Sorry it's so cold in London again!

Yesterday was tax day here....painful! Maybe a gorgeous book and a new bottle of perfume is what I need to cheer myself up. :-)

Rose said...

Hi Trish, yes a book and a bottle of perfume should do the trick! possibly also a cocktail!
I haven't bought a full bottle of perfume for quite a while- I am feeling the urge to splurge come on, sometimes a decant just won't do.

Trish said...

Yes....and a cocktail!

Hugs,

My weakness is books - I have the first but not the others....Amazon here I come Rose, xv.

Rose said...

Vicki, me too! I can always persuade myself I need them... I'm sure I'll end up in one of those houses that leans from the weight of books!
