Everywhere I go I see pink. I do think it is more prevalent now than ever before. I hope it stays popular. I have loved pink since I was a toddler. I wore a lot of pink-- still do!
Find what makes you happy, do it, go towards it, hang out with people who are happy.
Life is too short to hate your job. You can change anything and make it better. For me, being positive and having a lot of pink around me makes me stay positive--it is a sort of perpetuating cycle pink equals happy happy equals pinkness. Ha
Even though it is fall I still use my pink china and love to find pink roses and peonies at Whole Foods or Fresh Market. My friend stopped for the night on her way to Florida and I wanted to make her a nice dinner and use my pretty things for her.
I made the floral arrangement by placing strips of clear scotch tape across the container and inserting the flowers in the holes it made. that way it doesn't move around on you. I love to do the flowers.
It is fun to use my monogrammed trivet too. By the time we ate it was dark so I wanted a lot of votive candles on the table. A little bubbly and good friends--what could be better?
I just adore this image I found on line. I believe it is the work of the person who has the blog Lovely Textiiles-- a UK blogger. I wonder if I could try to make this? It is soooo pretty. Swan obsession continues I find so many lovely swan things. Some are way beyond my budget-- silver swan centerpieces, huge swan planters etc Marie Antoinette had swans at her little farm and they still have swans at Versailles.
We love this iconic bookstore and the restaurant next door
I love this way of finding a room mate or selling a car! Saw this several places in city
Paris in small scenes
The joys of Paris are many and many of them are little things. The pretty gutter spout, the shop window displays, ironwork on balconies, my favorite ornate bridge. We always notice new ( to us) things about Paris on every trip.
That is all part of the appeal and why we return so often.
I saw these cute cupcakes on Pintrest!! Aren't they really unusual and clever? This is the trouble with looking on Pintrest you see neat things like this and want to know more!
I wish I knew who made them. I think the top (her body) is made with that modeling clay bakers use. Any one know anything about these. I would love to order some or learn how to make them! What fun although I feel they are probably labor intensive.
I thought you may enjoy seeing these pastry photos of our September trip to Paris. I enjoyed all my pastry treats that I ate while there. Of course, my nasty cold kept me for tasting some of them! C'est la vie!
It always amazes me how perfect the pastries are and how they sell out in shop after shop thousands of pastries each day consumed by Paris residents and tourists.
It is one of the things I love about the city the seemingly endless supply of fine pastry.
I have so much fun in Paris looking for the unique or unusual and I find many unusual or quirky doorknobs. I did a post on the doorknobs a few years ago and found some new ones on this last trip! Some seem to tie in with the business and others are just pretty.One of my favorite things about Paris is that beauty and art are everywhere even in doorknobs.
Pink Boy always has fun in Paris. Between eating and admiring cute doggies and taking silly pictures he is a happy tourist. This trip I became ill half way through so I had to cough and sneeze during many nights .
He was good about his interrupted sleep. Even sick I still enjoyed my trip.He loves that doggies go everywhere in Paris.
I'm just a girl from the South with an eye for pink and for pretty homes and gardens. I love to travel and I love France. I have lots of hobbies and love meeting new people. I love art,pastry making, ballet, reading, gardening,dancing and being with friends and with my dogs, cat and pink parakeets.
