May in Paris

Just imagine ...
May in Paris, with all of YOU living there as well, 
for a week or so, all of us, free to enjoy live in the city of lights,
 love, art, fashion and joie de vivre. I would rent
 erin fetherston’s apartment  - and invite you in 
for tea and rainbow colored macaroons and later 
champagne, cheese & paté. 
Isn't that pink daybed a dream? 

I would, paint, write, dream ... drive my vintage byciclette to 
do my groceries at farmers markets and delicious little shops, 
polish up my french again, and meet you in sidewalk cafés, 
on lively squares and  in little restaurants ... 
yes, i can see why Paris is always a good idea! 

Let's start the week à la parisienne,  
whatever that means to you ..
.i'llbe delighted to hear more about it soon!

And look at more gorgeous  Paris inspiration 
over at my friend Anitas place - 
she's american, but whenever i think of Paris,
 i think of her as well!

P.S: As i'm currently away, i will come and visit you all as soon as i get back - beginning of nexr week!
