I'm back on the blog !
In May 2012, after 1 year of blogging, I decided to stop it because I was very busy with my Etsy shop.
This blog was originally a way for me to share my Digital Bottle Cap Images for free. Now the Blog will be about the French Belle Epoque and Années Folles with anecdotes about Parisian lifestyle - entertainers (Maurice Chevalier, Josephine Baker, etc) - cabarets (Moulin Rouge, Folies Bergère, etc) - and more !
I will also add Digital Bottle Cap Images with images of the Belle Epoque and the Années Folles.
It will also be linked with my ETSY shop, FOLIE du JOUR.
Folie du Jour is a french shop specialized in Antique French ADVERTISING posters and DICTIONARY plates as well as antique french objects from the french Belle Epoque (victorian Era) and the Années Folles (Roaring twenties).
The Roaring Twenties is a term sometimes used to refer to the 1920s, characterizing the decade's distinctive cultural edge in most of the major cities of the "west" for a period of sustained economic prosperity. French speakers dubbed it the "années folles" ("Crazy Years"), emphasizing the era's social, artistic, and cultural dynamism. "Normalcy" returned to politics in the wake of hyper-emotional patriotism during World War I, jazz music blossomed, the flapper redefined modern womanhood, and Art Deco peaked.
