good morning and happy sunday! how’s your weekend going? i hope things are going well in your world. i’m heading to the flea market to try out my new camera. it’s a lot getting used to all the controls, let alone the exposures, f-stops, focal lengths, aperture, shutter speed and all the things my other cameras didn’t have. (at least not on auto :) anyway it’s time for a real camera and i’m excited to play with it. i’ll take some shots around the house once i get the settings down.
these were trials. this week i’ll be shooting things that are up for sale, vignettes to show how we’re using them in real life. we’re now selling on lots of portals (besides the paris apartment’s boutique) the buttons and links are to the right on the blog side bar. have you been to hunter’s alley? it’s one king’s lane’s sister site and they put together the best features on the web so you can sell, pin, like, favorite, share etc. it’s a lot of fun! next is etsy and of course one king’s lane itself. we have a tastemaker tag sale coming up in the spring, so more about that soon. in the meantime, check out what we’ve been up to!
last but not least, it’s time to announce the winner of last week’s giveaway for the original book, The Paris Apartment. drumroll…#26, Bridget Boyle. congratulations! i wish i had more copies to give away. a new one is coming soon so we’ll just have to do it again. thank you for all your sweet comments, they mean a lot to me!
last but not least, i’ve been meaning to get this next giveaway going for quite awhile. the author, jan dolphin, was kind enough to send two editions of her compilation of books called ‘Paris from the Heart’. they’re lovely paperbacks with great color photos and info on walking tours, day trips and escapades around paris. if you’re interested, leave a comment and we’ll draw TWO winners this week.
well it’s sunny so i better get out there. have a great rest of the weekend, today is just getting started and they days seem to fly by! have fun!
wait, is there anything good about winter? oh yes, right…shots of paris all wrapped up in sleet and snow! bonjour dear friends. it’s even cold here in miami so i thought we could share some gorgeous pictures of our favorite city when she’s chilly and imagine the roaring fires, the scents wafting through the apartments and the happiness it is to arrive home after trudging through a long day!
sorry i’m a day late for yesterday’s giveaway but joseph convinced me to play hooky and since my new motto is why postpone joy? i was obligated to take a mini road trip and enjoy the day.
(not sure what the credit is for this one, it looks super old and is one of my eternal faves)
