I Love Paris I Love France I Usually Wear

I usually wear Clothes!
You thought I was going to
Underpants, didn't you?
Remember that old 
sing-song rhyme from school?
I see London
I see France
I see (insert name of choice) 

Oooooooh...Lookee here!
Mr.& Mrs.B
have been our good friends
for many years.
This is an old picture of them
but the only one I have on hand.
Well, when they were
here for the
Fourth of July,
I mentioned that I wished
I could find some French books.
Being the kind soul
(and semi-hoarder!;>)
that he is,  my friend,
MrB, brought me 
some French books...
the real deal!
This is only a sampling...
Look at the inside cover...
He gave me about 10 books...
A day or so later
he gave me another
bag full of
French Books!

Hey, MrB!
MyHero says
Thank You!
He is really excited
that I like all things
As a matter of fact,
he is so excited he has
something special on
order-just for me.
I don't know how
HE is going to look
in that
French Maid's Costume...
but I am guessing,
with a wig,
something  like this~
Can I get an

Kinda scary, huh?

I love hairy French maids. Especially when they're guys!
I say "go for it"!

Susie said...

Diana, Ooo-la-la your French maid needs a shave. :):) I love that you got so many books from your friend. I can think of so many decorating ideas to use them. I am sure you can too. You'll have to show what you do with them. :):) Smiles, xo, Susie

Just so long as he wears his burnt underpants with this outfit! Then you could definitely sing the rhyme.

Japolina said...

You cracked me up this morning Ms. Diana! Have a super weekend. BonJour!

Kathy @ Creative Home Expressions said...

Sheesh, men! I don't know why they think they can carry those outfits off, Diana. It's the same thing I tell my hubby when he says he's going to order something from Victoria's Secret. "I don't think they have your size, honey"!

What a wonderful friend to bring you all those books! You must be in heaven. Did he have them all himself? Now you'll have to show us where you put them. You will have them on display - oui? : )

DearHelenHartman said...

Thanks for the laughs. The French books are darling but that maid...

Nonnie said...

Hilarious! If he cooks, does it matter what he wears? ... He definitely spices up your life. But you may be right, I guess it is a little scary.

What a kind friend. Have a wonderful time pouring over every bit of your books. If it is a french maid outfit, please model it for all of us!

Gina said...

Haha! What a generous friend Mr. B is. Enjoy your la la!

Tete said...

Very scary! Tell MyHero not to shave his pits and he will be perfect in that get up.
So glad you got so many books! Hope you post more of them and what you end up doing with them...

Blessed Serendipity said...

Love the french books but the french maids outfit? It's just wrong for a man to wear one. But you might want to get one to wear out next time you go to starbucks. I bet you'll get your coffee free. LOL.

Grammy Goodwill said...

Not interested in your French maid, but I would love to read some of those books - or attempt it. I don't know how my high school French would hold up.

TheMoonAndMe said...

I am jealous.
Of your books.
NOT your French maid. I have to go wash my eyes.
With soap.
