Paris Bleus

Yesterday there were blue skies in Paris. And cobalt French blue was out in force. As well as mufflers, sweaters, gloves and even hats! BrrrrrrrrrrEven the wall decor in the Metro was carrying blue bags.
More sacs bleus de Stephane Verdino in the Marais.
Toujour les voitures bleus en Paris.
Christian says this is an old symbol of Paris.
Why a Viking ship?

Mens skin stuff in bleu.
Les Jeans bleu are sooooo French.
So many boutique bleus in Paris.
Et bien sur les portes en bleus.
Knock! Knock! Oh Please let us in to see all your blue things, Parisiens.
Jean-Paul Hevin always has blue with his chocolat...miam maim
At the Salon Professional de Chocolat there were complimentary blue and yellow bags of all kinds.
Don't we need a bit more complimentary colors? Say some "orange" tarts from Landemaine boulangerie on rue des Martyrs (pronounced roo day Mar-TEAR). Abricot, pomme, figue...MIAM!!!!Some

Nice blue post but today Paris is cloudy so you've now to find grey things. Not so difficult I think. Some "petite robe noire".
Enjoy your day and be careful.

true blue
feelin' blue
blue skies thinking
deep blue
out of the blue
a bolt from the blue
Once in a blue moon
Talk until you are blue in the face
Keep the blues away
Go off into the blue
Something happens out of the blue
Blue Boy
Blue Beard!

Blue is my favorite color, so I love this post!
The shot of the brass doorknocker on the blue door is very beautiful.

Blue is also my favorite color.
Once I was giving a WC demo, and mixed French Ultra Marine with its' compliment, Burnt Sienna, into a granulated wash.
One of the students told me, years later, it was one of the most sensual moments she'd had! LOVE your paintings, Carol, of those mixtures.

Blue jeans:

Mais NON!

Denim = de Niems from serge de Niems dyed with indigo from the Med.

"jeans" derive from Genoa, Italy.

that's what you get for allowing a librarian on the list --

All true blue?! Those might made you feel blue? Orange tarts will really do the trick. Thanks for sharing. They might be all blue but I love them all. By the way, I found a fantastic Paris adventure that might interest you too. Thanks and have a wonderful day!
