If you watch American Idol (Go Adam Go)......you'll know that to be "d'bomb" is a very good thing! It means you're the bestest.
My friend Sally Cendral from France is just that...d'bestest bomb ! She's my French Idol !!!
when you ask Sally to go on a mission for you she doesn't just go....she GOES !
Sally and I spotted this very interesting piece of jewelry on a lady when we were together in Paris in March
Im not even sure it's a piece of jewelry....I think it may be a good luck or religious keychain.
It didn't matter....I only knew it was tres cool and I liked the ribbons and I had to get my hands on one.
Sally, who lives in the south of France, went up to Paris (hours away) & began her search....and....
Today a package with a hilarious 5 page note arrived at my office... I could not stop laughing.....it was the story of how Sally, thinking she totally remembered the store that sold them, walked all over Paris searching for it...everywhere.
She walked the whole length of the Marais browsing and keeping her eyes open for just that one store she was sure she remembered, stopping everywhere, asking everyone.
The bead shop lady sent her to one place, the shoe shop sent to her another, the Japanese storeowner sent her up another block.....she went up, she went down, she went perpendicular, she schlepped, she had a coffee and a little sit & proceeded again.
People who thought they had a clue had none ! She was walking in circles. Her feet ached.
Determined....she forged on! For hours.
She even went so far as to do a virtual tour on a computer and looked at building facades...she was on a ribbon mission. God Bless her !
She is one SERIOUS SHOPPER !!!!
FINALLY....SHE FOUND THE STORE...BUT...they no longer made that item. Oy vey!
HOWEVER...they did have JUST the ribbons.....YIPEE !
So...Sally got the ribbons and an adorable little keychain and told me to be creative.
Which I will be, but not today !
Today I am just so excited and still laughing !
I LOVE YOU Sally !
