    Hello..your blog is amazing. Just beautiful beyond words. I stayed in Paris for three months earlier this year and this just brings back lovely memories. I’m from Australia but lived in Jakarta at the moment, we have a restaurant called Potato Head, and we’re organizing our NYE party themed New York 1930s and I’m getting a lot of inspiration from you.
    Thank you v much.
