Happy weekend everyone! i hope you pack a lot of fun into that extra hour we all get tomorrow! our OKL sale is up this morning and i’m shooting some of my faves one last time while i’ve got the chance. everything seems different once i know they may leave my life! these ladies have been hanging in my boudoir for the past few weeks.  the strawberry blond reminds me me of my niece and her pretty red hair.

one of the most fun articles is on observing ways people hold everthing from their hands to their smokes to their purses!

we’re looking at the engravings and paintings as they hang for one final day.  this is one of my favorites. it’s a split screen image of a wall for a chateau. hard to believe people drew all these designs by hand.

they decorated every inch and nook and cranny to create alcoves and cover walls, ceilings and doors.  as always i wonder, where did the ideas come from?

well i’ll ponder that later. for now we’re off to get some breakfast. have a beautiful day!

    I love that opening photo, Claudia, it’s perfect in composition and color; it’s cute, too!
    I love vintage and you sure know how to find it and present it – great ads from the “old days.”

    HI Claudia, Good luck on all your hard work. I thought that blue plume was in the sale. Maybe the next time your in Paris I’ll have you look for one for me. I would love to have a real fluffy one in light blue or pink. Thanks

    Bonjour Claudia – I’m loving all the beautiful French things you’re sharing here – came by from Greige. I love the cover of your book and I’m hoping to own a copy soon so that I’m able to peek inside! I have family in France and have visited several times and fallen in love with French style decoration.

    Happy day – Mary
