Madame de la Lafayette

Madame de la Lafayette,watercolor on Etsy,watercolor
Parisienne Anne Corrons of MesVitrinesNYC (now Mes VitrinesParis/London) gave me a detailed tour of the first Xmas vitrines in Paris...i.e. Galeries Lafayette!
MIAM-MIAM
A fantasie tea party for two...
Dreamy Nicole Kidman-like femmes...
One of them very much turned...
Upside down!
What was in the tea?
Anne tells me this means BIG Xmas!
Anne about to take a shot, and I'm about to go off to Philadelphia for the Holiday. Here's hoping I don't get turned upside down and you either!!!
See you next week...
BON HOLIDAY!

  4. Have a wonderful time in Philly, Carol--my nephew is arriving from Philly here in GA today. That painting is so fabulous! You are on a roll, cutie. I love it! So whimsical and lovely, and just the right loose and delicate touch! You go it so right.

  14. Ever considered doing a foodie/ fun art tour for seasoned travelers?
    For those of us who have been to Paris several times, it is always wonderful to gain a new perspective. Getting to the chocolate fair would have been great - there is always next year! I like many of your articles: recent ones include the cups, mugs.
    If not a tour, perhaps a list of fun events/ shopping places.

    Please continue with your wonderful blog. It perks up many people's day.
    I also enjoy your lovely watercolors esp. the food ones.

    kind regards,
    Bobo

  16. Spirited tea party! :-)
    Very otherworldly.

    I hope you had a great Thanksgiving down south in Philly! Last time I was there, was exactly this weekend, at the turn of the month, I am getting almost nostalgic. ;-)
