neither can I...

Most immediately I start thinking about vacation,
then returning, then Christmas shopping, but
I know you do too.  We're girls!  It's the way we are.

Surprise !!
Is this amazing?
German Installation Artist Heike Weber
created this using a Sharpie.
A complete visual delight, an art gallery where even
the floor is ART.

They stood like that every morning,
admiring the view while the coffee was brewing on the stove.
Some days, they even waved...

 She fretted momentarily at her extravagance,
after indulging in black boots with little bows down the front ~
boots she didn't need,  but wanted.
Then she saw the bunches of pink roses and picked up an armful,
losing all thoughts of regret in their fragrance.
She must have them, too.
She was in Paris, after all....

I love our Fifi & I know you do too, but these are just so delightful
I wanted to introduce you to the

charming art prints of Shell Sherree on ETSY
love you guys

    The fashions are so delightful. I love to look and dream about when I could wear things like this many moons ago. Cute...Cute...

    Love the sketches by Shell Sherree. I will go and check out her Etsy shoppe. Thanks for introducing her.

  29. What a great pink Saturday post! So creative! Emily Blunt's hosiery with the bows are way too cute for words. Thanks for introducing me to Shell Sherree, I need to check her out!
    From another Marcia in California:)

  30. Happy belated pink Saturday. Lovely post. That floor is too interesting!

  31. Happy Pink Saturday, Marsha. I hope you enjoyed being one of the featured participants.

    You always make Saturday and every day beautiful and fun. I am totally blown away by the floor in the art gallery. Wow!

  32. Well, I guess the sharpie floor is the hit, even if it weren't from a sharpie, the flowing lines and the rich color is so wonderful. It looks like some exotic onyx flooring. Love the feminine look of lace and layering. Isn't it funny, I thought the hosiery industy was going out of business and they have reinvented themselves. So fun, feminine and beautiful. Checked out your previous post, that I missed, love the shoes with flowers. I think shoes are like little jewels in life. I would love a pair of those. Where would I wear them? I have no idea, but I would make my husband take me somewhere! PS I live in Utah, just south of Salt Lake. Four hours south is St. George where you can buy palm trees and sit around a pool with palm trees blowing in the breeze. It's hard to believe but true.

    Love your inspiration!

  33. Thought I was already a follower, but checked it out and I wasn't, now I am. Lovin it.

  34. First off, thank you so much for your kind comment this week -- you made my day!

    Secondly, oh what a roundup of wonderful things -- I'm particularly taken with Emily Blunt -- she's such a lovely actress, and I adore her style. I had only seen the cover, so thank you for sharing the remainder of the shoot!

    Hope you had a lovely weekend,


  35. Wowsers....love those pink floors!

  36. Hello Marsha,

    You're right, that floor is amazing! And isn't Emily Blunt just beautiful?

    I like how wrote stories on both paintings. makes it sweet.

    belated Happy PS!


  37. Another lolly bag full from you! Always love your posts.
    Emily Blunt is too beautiful. I love that woman!
    The layering for Fall looks great, though I have never felt comfortable in it. Not sure why. I am a less is more type of person I guess, but I love the looks nevertheless!..
    Those wines looks so great - perfect for a girly glass in the afternoon. Good work Australia! :)

    Also think that Shell Sherree's little aquarelles are so cute. Even more so when you write about them. I love how you narrate!


  38. ooh fashion wine and flowers... you are too kind! Emily Blunt is just gorgeous isn't she? Thank you for your kind and meaningful comment on my post about the launch of the new concept - we got delayed but is now going ahead for Weds! xxx

  39. Dear Marsha, I am exactly like you... I'm already thinking about Christmas... What am I like? xx


Thank you so much for your wonderful comments, each of them mean so much to me. After all, the interaction is the reason we blog. xx's
