  1. What a fun package!
    I loved your Paris blues. Blue has always been my favourite colour. I remember being shocked, at about 12 years of age, when a teacher told me that blue was 'a cold colour'. Not to me!

  20. Hi Sarah, Your Paris blues are beautiful. My daughter often wears her hair in a French braid. When she was a little girl she wore it in braids almost every day and still does the French braid often for work days. Those pictures of the street signs are making me long for Paris. I haven't been for many years. And I love the piece of pottery. Ooh la la ! Linda

  30. Beautiful Post Sarah. I love all those "French Blues". My Favorite picture is the one of the three pretty ladies smiling, BUT what captured my attention IS the "Man in the background that is wishfully thinking about the chair, in front of ANTIQUITES DECOR". Can we read his mind? I think so!hehe

  34. What gorgeous photos you have of Paris! I have yet to make all my rounds for this party...but I'm so enjoying it. I've noticed a theme perhaps in so many of the blogs...the GORGEOUS doors and windows and signs in the decor over there. WOW...Wish we had that here in the States.

  45. Hi Sarah, What great photographs of people and places in Paris. Love your beautiful random blues. I also have a collection of door pics. Of course the French Faience plate is one of my favorite photos along with the dutch (I think) charger. Great snap of you enjoying Monet (your hair is gorgeous), and what a great shot of your husband in front of the romantic Seine! It must have been such a special trip! Congratulations on winning the brocante giveaway. Such pretty items.

  58. Sarah, now I want to paint my door that French blue color! Those are all beautiful, and of course, I love the French pottery you showed. I'm pinning that first set of French doors. I'm trying to imagine what my house would look like with a door that color. I'm not sure I have a good enough imagination, but I sure am loving that color. laurie
