nothing i would rather do

good morning mes chers amis! it’s a gorgeous brisk day in nyc. i came in last night to spend the weekend with friends and family.


we’ve been in and out all morning getting the apartment cosy and stocked.


for the next little while i’m gonna just do what i wanna do which is chill and say hi.


(tulip fields in holland above and below)


i’m enjoying having a clean slate for a minute.


i spent some time between emails on pinterest and have been checking out the likes i’ve been saving 


you know how the likes are…no real home and rarely looked over. anyway here are a few non sequitur shots from today.

apparently i’m feeling color


anyway now it’s not morning anymore and it was when i started this so it’s time to get back to reality. and so, tomorrow. till then i bid you adieu. have a glorious day!

ps thought you’d enjoy this!

    Hi Claudia,
    I had to let you know that I received your latest book “Paris Flea Market Style” yesterday and couldn’t put it down. It totally rocks and will help when I return to Paris in May and September. Thanks for a great read and a visual treat! I had never written a book review before but I just wrote a review on Amazon with 5 stars for “Paris Flea Market Style”.
