Everything pretty....







There are so many 'pretties' to be found in Paris, every turn of a corner can bring a new delight. I like these photos that I took recently, the first photo is a window display....I adore the oversize butterflies. The basket of rose petals, I took in a florist.....right place at the right time....the sun light just touched the top of the petals and bought them all to life, you can see the result. The third photos is simply a bucket of roses outside a florist, but I love the contrast of the roses with the timber crate....not to mention the beautiful colors of the blooms. The next photo of the beautiful colored peonies was taken at a market. More roses, but this time taken through the shop window....call me crazy, but I love to see the reflection of the building opposite in contrast with the roses. The white jug with the blue and white flowers....gorgeous combination....was simply sitting in a shop front window begging me to take their photo, while the last photo is of the door of the iconic Laduree...look through the detail on the door to the lovely wall paneling and the pretty wall sconce.
Yes, I'm missing Paris!!!
