unless it actually keeps a web log of your life?
good morning friends and happy friday. the photo above was so fascinating i had to post it. it’s the return of the mona lisa to the louvre after the nazi invasion of paris. once they were conquered she was free be the paris we take so for granted. our muse!
i hope you don’t mind a second day posting about my trip to paris with okl. they posted a lot of information on their blog about the trip yesterday after susan’s container sale went up. since they took the time to interview me about my favorite markets, i turned into a jpeg that can be read below. for me it’s a virtual scrapbook and this is the best place to keep it cause, hey, a blog is forever. (sort of)! hope you enjoy it!
day trips to paris markets
thanks for coming by and hope you got some info and maybe a bee in your bonnet to go to paris or anywhere soon, there’s nothing like traveling. i’ll be putting my trip together for late summer and fall soon and will keep you posted on the progress. maybe i’ll close up the apartment here since i have to move and just hit the road for a couple months. after all, times they are always a changin’ and you never know what’s next. till then, have a bon weekend!
good morning mes chere amis! it’s been a long winter and hard to believe that i was able to keep a secret for 6 months, but today can finally reveal a career highlight i’ve been sitting on! i didn’t want to spoil the fun of having takin one king’s lane founder, Susan Feldman on a wild shopping spree in paris in january for her container sale that’s happening right now! it was brutal weather and we trudged through slush with wet uggs and red noses but we beat down doors and got beautiful treasures for a sale i hope you’re going to really enjoy! take a look: Susan’s Container Sale
well, i better get back to reality. it was fun reliving our trip and i hope we can do it again soon, as it was a dream come true to be there together. as you know, i love to share my sources and passion for the markets and Susan really absorbed it. she had a vision. i hope you and i can shop together sometime too! i’ll be there in september, maybe we can plan a blogger’s meet up if you’re there? something to think about. for now it’s back to work to make it happen, more soon!
good morning and happy tuesday everyone.
it’s a crazy day from what’s on the news. i hope you’re safe and sound and for those who are facing difficult times due to mother nature, please know we are all praying for you.
it’s earth that inspired my color choice to explore today. she’s so full of shades and tones it’s hard to pinpoint something specific but i’m finally honing in on one in particular: aqua.
(38702878020678901) it is somewhere between turquoise and celadon and i had to try not to cross the lines. not sure how i did, you can be the judge!
(bohemianwornest) even though it’s a color found so much in nature, it can sometimes be a little extreme and almost gaudy
(38702878020676243) but then again, one shade down it’s neutral, like so many we’ve explored over the past few days.
(38702878020680243) i love to see it in subtle tones on furniture like the little sofa.
(38702878020678983) and it’s got a dreamy quality in glass
(38702878020678973) adds a pick me up to any vignette (here almost crossing the turquoise line, maybe it’s both)?
(38702878020678783) it’s great in a bath
(38702878020687776) or in a dose of glass tiles
(38702878020679943 i keep coming back to nature to see where the color wheel blends
(38702878020679979) i find it soothing and love to see it on walls
(dianeburn.com) again, a color that’s timeless whether it’s used in a cottage or a baroque chateau
(38702878020680065) aqua velvet
(38702878020678907) it’s a bold color but kind of fun to use in unusual ways. here someone got creative with an ombre
and a gorgeous concrete floor
(madebygirl) once you choose your palette
the sky’s the limit! hope you have a fabulous day and if you’re using aqua let us know where!
