Oh, I hardly recognised you in that wonderful costume! Do you like my Moroccan bride's outfit? It was hand-embroidered and beaded, which took many, many hours to complete. And what about the maquillage? Thankfully, that's not Super Glue holding the beads. But the headpiece is a little heavy. Perhaps it will cause me to lose my balance when belly-dancing. And we are belly-dancing at this Bloglandia international party, are we not? Mais oui, mes amies!
After a few dances and some chilling refreshments - please hand me that Candy Corn, which is conspiciously absent in France, to go with this surprising
slime green champagne - perhaps you'd like a little treat? Just leave a comment and on All Saints' Day, your name might be drawn from this divine chapeau that's beginning to give me a bit of a headache. The winner will receive an illustration from a French children's book, suitable for framing.
And now for a trick I observed from my kitchen window. See those tall glass panels that reach from the ground beyond the second floor (actually in Europe it's considered the first floor)? Construction workers had to figure out quite the trick to get them into the building across the courtyard, as the panels were too tall to fit in the elevator or take up the stairwells!
But they found the solution: two guys stood on the ground and pushed the panels upwards with a rubber mallet, while two others stood in the second floor window to receive the panels. How's that for a nifty spur-of-the-moment Halloween trick??!!
