louis’ lovely ladies

enpatinant

hi friends! i know it’s pretty cold for so many right now so i hope you’re tucked in warm and cozy tonite!

yesterday i started cleaning off my desktop and was happy to see you enjoyed it. today i started working on some of the folders. so many of the images aren’t hi res so they can’t go to print. soooo the next best thing is to share them with you! i wish i could figure out how to get them to blow up when you click but it seems like wordpress may have changed that feature.

    Hows the modernism theme in paris? Does one exist? Everytime I come across french art, its very archaic.

    Your blog is lovely, as always, but I must say the winter pictures gives one good cause to be in the South. Brrrrr! I’m happy to be in the deep South on our lil’ island, lovely as NYC can be in winter.
    I so enjoy your special place.

    ps. I like the new picture that shows up when you write back in the posts here… the brunette flapper like girl attached to “theparisapartment replied.” Didn’t it used to be a pink flower? This one looks like you! :) How does one attach a picture? I haven’t figured it out yet.
