happy friday and new prints~





Happy Friday and Happy Weekend mes amies!

I hope you have something wonderful planned, whether it be adventurous, exciting, or simply relaxing. I think I am going to opt for the relaxing option as it has been busy around here this week and I could use some down time~






I have been going through my France photos and will be adding a few more to the shop this weekend. I absolutely loved the architecture with its beautiful windows, doors and shutters. The gorgeous colors, faded by years in the southern French sunshine are stunning.






Stop by and have a peek - I hope that they take you there as they do me...

I love the colors of the shutters..maybe Ben Moore blue lace#1625? Do you ever try to figure out the color so you can use it somewhere?! I do!

Oh it's so much fun to come here for a quick trip to Paris, whenever I feel like it! I just dropped by your shop, too, and ordered a few prints! So beautiful, I can't wait to receive them.

The shutters are gorgeous Kim ~ reminds me of when Cindy and Seth went on their trip and she had so many photos of shutters when she got home! Maybe it's because we rarely see them here ~ do you think? We are finishing up our vacation and heading to the cottage tomorrow to open it up. Have a wonderful week-end my friend. xo

Just got back from an amazing mini-weekend where I met several lovely bloggy friends and saw things that were a FEAST for the camera! Now I'm ready for the RELAXING part : ) Your pictures are amazing and I'll look forward to popping over to your shop and seeing what's new! xx P&H

thank you for you sweet comment on my blog I am thrilled to now know about your beautiful blog here :-D I too love the architecture in the south of france, especially all the adorable blue shutters! I imagine having a little apartment in one of the old city centers and just sitting out my window (much like these) on warm summer evenings

Your photography gets yummier by the moment!
I talk of Paris like I was there yesterday.

Once one goes to Paris it never leaves one's soul
