Pink ballerinas for Pink Saturday

I do not think I will ever get over my ballerina/tutu obsession. It is not so bad to be in love with ballet and tutus. I dream of floating across the dark stage in my pale pink tutu. Arms reaching upward.  Snow falling around me and the music is magic.
Join me on Pinterest to see more of my ballet and tutu obsession. Just search for Marie Arden.
Happy Pink Saturday Please join Beverly at

Gardener figurine and Wow Us Wednesday

Wow Us Wednesday is here at Savvy Southern Style 
link below:

This fine fellow followed me home from Queen's Antiques in Roswell Sunday. I love the color of his coat. He is ready to work in the garden. I just wish he has a lady friend to help him. He looks like a Dresden figurine but his finish is matte. He sits on my night table to remind me of the myriad of garden chores I must do daily.

Paris I miss you so much

My husband thinks I am a drama queen because I say I am missing Paris so much. I think Paris is essential like air or food-- to me. It is not glamour that I crave, it is not shopping that I crave, it is not even the food there that I crave. I miss Paris-- the million details and sights, sounds,and scents that make up this amazing city. The flair and beauty that seems to touch everything there. How clothes are worn, how a package is wrapped,how objects are displayed in windows. All the tiny pleasures one sees while on a walk I am happier there than anyplace else. 
Paris I miss you... someday not too far away I will be back to see you again.

Marie Antoinette has lunch with her dressmaker

Happy Pink Saturday
Join Beverly at:
I am reprising my MA tablescape from about a year ago. I 've been having trouble with the updated blogger especially in loading photos.
This tablescape was inspired by reading about her dressmaker and pretending that the Queen and her dressmaker were out on the grounds of Petit Trianon lunching and discussing dresses,, bird watching with opera glasses and just enjoying the day.

Karl I disagree...

I love Karl Lagerfeld-- his style, his designs, his many talents and I am amazed at how many languages he speaks.  I usually agree with his opinions on most things but on the subject  of swans I must disagree.
I have tamed swans, I have fed many swans and have never had a bad experience. In fact, one snowy day I fell on the slope to the pond and the swans came up out of the water and hovered over me making sure I was alright.
I think he must have encountered them while they were nesting. Male swans can be very violent and territorial when their are eggs in the nest.
Not even Karl can change my minds about swans. J'adore les cygnes Monsieur Lagerfeld.

Dita my style icon

                                                        Dita at home always retro

           Her VivienneWestwood wedding gown--yes it was purple!

I love her style-- her costumes for her shows are wonderful and she always wears Louboutin shoes on stage. He makes them just for her so they coordinate with her costumes. She rocks her retro style 24/7 even just running to the store or living inside her LA home. How can I not love her style--she has a pink retro kitchen?! Miss von Teese lives part time in Paris and in LA. She is a self made artist and has colloraborated on lingerie, makeup and other items. She started her retro shopping as a young girl.
I wish I could dress as well as she does.  She is living her retro life while I live my pink life.
Have a Pink day!

White Wednesday I love it

What a joy to see swans with wings  a flutter

And the joy of seeing a ballerina with lifted arms almost taking flight
Both are mingled in my mind 

Joining in on White Wednesday

Have a Pink day!
