hi guys, happy monday~
hope you had a fantastic holiday weekend. i spent most of mine avoiding technology but must say it’s nice to be back now that the sun is shining and my batteries have been recharged.
have a great day and lots of fun, more soon!
hi guys, how’s your week shaping up? it’s good to be back on the continent as they (used to) say. as much fun as paris is, it’s still takes every ounce of energy to tackle it, if only for a few days. i’m back in miami for a day and fly to nyc tomorrow for thanksgiving, savoring every moment at home before taking off again.
today i’m unpacking the goodies from the weekend and since i have to keep it all in one place till it gets shot, can enjoy it for awhile. my favorite was the very last piece we found. it’s a painting by an artist you may remember from the pochoirs i got a few trips ago by artist lucien victor guirand de scevola. this one stopped me in my tracks, an original oil in a gold frame from the 30s.
my little corner is showing signs of life so for as long as its mine, i’m gonna really enjoy it. hope you do too! back to unpacking and hanging stuff up!
hi guys, ça va? i’ve been meaning to get here for what seems like days but they just have flown by. my clients left with armloads of treasures and i had my fun too.
looking back over the pics it seems that i’m in an artsy mood these days and am still smitten with the flea market art.
there’s a lot if it in every shape, price range, color and style.
i actually did get a few pieces (like the one above)
and am going back for a couple more today.
as my guy says, you can’t buy it all so i hope you enjoy these as much as i did even if they’re not hanging over our mantles…yet!
have a great monday and i’ll be back a bit later with well, who knows what! À bientôt!
hi guys, greetings from gay paree! it’s chilly and dreary but that didn’t stop us from trudging a good many hours yesterday. no matter how many times i visit paris it’s always a brand new experience.
these first two shots were taken by my sis in law. thanks, jean!
our apartment has everything a couple of gals could want but the link isn’t working and we’re about to head out.
so i’ll leave you with a couple shots of the view. it’s kind of surreal and the first time i’ve had the tour right outside the window. we’ve been taking pics to try to capture it and i’m not sure we did but this will have to suffice for le moment. we’ve got to get to those croissants! more soon!
PS we’re having another giveaway! this time it’s a beautiful handmade piece from leslie andrews who created tarnished lace. she made this beautiful necklace just for us. it’s full of gems, pearls and an antique key. if you’d like to win it, please go to her facebook page and ‘like’it. then leave a comment below and it could be yours! bon chance!
good morning guys! how’s the week going? i’m wrapping it up over here and getting ready for a long weekend in paris with clients. (i’ve always wanted to say that and it’s finally reality :)
we’ll be shopping the markets and i’ll be hunting for gems for the ‘event’ that cannot be mentioned yet happening in early 2012. my sister in law suggested shopping early so the container would arrive way before so i invited her along and she accepted! we’ll be staying with my peeps at paris perfect and i’m looking forward that!
i’ve been trying to slim down so i can get back to my diet of cafe and croissants on the go…
liz helped me pack this time, determined to make me a fashionista. uh huh! i promised to try even if it is sans le birkin. well, better get to tying up those loose ends. i really wish they’d bring the Concorde back so the trip could be just 3 hours over the atlantic. how can we get that great technology up and running again and why did we have to scrap it altogether?
let me know if i can bring you something back for you. more from the other side!
that quote is attributed to the dear ralph waldo emerson who seemed to be able to sum everything up so succinctly! hi guys, happy monday evening. where did the day go? liz and i have been working around the apartment and on the site all day listing new pieces and editing the pages.
we seem to both be gravitating toward art which is something i love and studied but never really collected.
in our travels we’re finding art we love at consignment stores and antique malls. these are a couple we picked up, one’s a chagall litho that needs to be reframed, the others are unknowns but who’s to say what’s art?
anyway she thinks it’s making my apartment very grown up. guess i’ll have to toss some pop art in here! well i hope you’re about to have a great monday night and wind down your day!
good morning and happy weekend! it’s been a busy week and we worked around the apartment rearranging and shooting for a good part of it. i’ll see if there are any worthy photos later but for now will leave you with my favorite nook. it’s one that comes alive with something in the sunlight and makes me stop and enjoy for a minute. hope you have a great saturday!
hello dolls! how are you on this morning of infinite potential? it’s been a revolving door around here but has finally calmed down as of today. i’m trying to set aside one small hour a day to tackle things that have been on the TO DO list for, well, decades! as each year passes it’s finally hitting me that if i focus things really will get done, and if i don’t, nothing will. simple philosophy but for some reason it’s been hard to realize in reality. for now we’re photographing absolutely everything we can get our hands on starting with these wallpapers from paris which will soon be DIY projects chez moi. i’ll check in later with progress but wanted to start the day wishing you a wonderful wednesday!
whew! wrapping up a long tuesday, how about you? liz and i have been working hard on curating a big project coming up in a couple months. but we couldn’t wait to play with some of the goodies in the meantime. this image is one of the teacups from a set we couldn’t resist. the porcelain is so delicate it’s translucent! we’ve been having a ball playing rachel zoe and mary macdonald while we’re out hunting. more on what’s coming soon, i have a couple friends en route so i’m shutting it down for now till tomorrow. have a great and fun filled night!
ps reading the comments i’m glad you guys like it! here’s the rest of it: heparisapartment.com/boutique/index.php?p=1559
