Red Rose Alley said...

Anita,
What a wonderful post this is. The girls loved England so much when they visited there. The picture of Great Britain is BEAUTY-FUL! This Eifel tower picture is amazing also. The girl's white dress against the Eifel tower is stunning. I loved the baloons, and the man dancing had me dancing too. Many of us are unsure of how to do this, as it is our first time, but you have explained it so thoroughly in your past posts, and I'll just put my trust in you, and you will lead the way. I am so looking forward to this adventure!!

Dearest Anita, happy monday to you! This weekend left me no time for blogging as i had visitors over (helping me in the garden, YAY!) and the weather was nice. Today, i'd love to hop over to Paris - am getting so exited reading your post. You'll sure prepare something special and - so many people are participating! Congrats dear, it'll be a blast. Bisou for a sunny and easy day, M.

Rhissanna said...

Oh for a cream tea. A nice cup of Indian and a stack of scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam. Oh dear, oh dear, oh dear...

Thank you so much for those pictures of home. I don't often get homesick but that sweet little crusty brown loaf of a Cotswold village, too pretty! In fact, it's because I miss the old stuff that I'm building Hubby a 19th century study.

Yes, I'll stop off at Old Blighty on my way to "La Ville-Lumière".

The enchanted home said...

I cannot wait to see what you do!!!!! Few places are as inspirational as Paris. And how true Anita, it is for us to enjoy,savor and cherish the ride to the top....the journey is such a huge part of the experience and its easy to lose sight.

Such a magical and fun adventure this will be. Oh how I love a thatched roof cottage. I would so love to visit Europe one day and just breathe in all the old world architecture. Stone cottages, walkways and walls. Makes my heart melt.

Hello, Anita-

what a quick answer- thank you :-)

There is a google translate button on the right side of my blog- just in the beginning- you can see it beside the photo of the black-white cat.

It´s always a pleasure and an adventure to scroll down your photostory- I love it.
And I am in love with that wild entrance in the beginning- it looks great!

Yes- spring is a wonderful time- light dresses and the sun and lots of flowers and green give us a good feeling...

Enjoy that day- I hope, you can read my post now...

catkin tales said...

hello my dear
how are you today?
we are basking in sunshine here and are about to go out into the meadow for a picnic
but whilst i am sitting here in the garden sipping lemonade (the homemade kind, no the fizzy one), i thought i'd pay you a visit and take in, for a third time, all these glorious images you have found. i had never seen that fabulous umberella photo with the beatles before.. i don't think you can get more quintissentialy english than beatles and umberellas.
i hope you are having as gorgeous a day as we are.
sending much love and meadow flowers from both myself and a happy, now fully recovered peace lily xxx

hello dearest
lovely to hear from you this afternoon :) gosh, just think how different life will be for you in 10 days time!!! i'm very happy that are are about to have this positive change.
i absolutely l❤ve the beatles too! i could never quite make up my mind who i favoured and so i decided to love them all equally :) my mother thinks george looked like my brother, keith. i think maybe he did a bit.
i have started a draft of my paris post and can see that there might be a problem with keeping it as a reasonable length, there is just soooo much i love about paris, about france that i think i could write a book! i am going to just have to work out how to condense all my thought and ideas. i am full of enthusiasm. you certainly know how to have fun!
for now, i am off to bed. being out in the fresh air all day has made me very sleepy.
i hope you have a lovely evening xx sending much love xx

Oh, I loved this too. Those red shoes are divine and the images outstanding as usual. Love the black and white of the Arc with the red car.
Cannot wait for the party. I think the theme is so inspiring and the possibilities are endless. We should go on these trips at least once a month. ;)
Thank you, love, for all the fun daydreaming.
XOXO,

Wow Yes, I love Paris...although I missed the perfume factories, Monet Museum, and more that I don't know. I did love love love the very first thing I ate after getting out of the train at Gar Nord, some simple French bread. Awh..lovely. Yo No Spraken Francis. Haaaa.

I would love to join. I was in Paris last April for 2 weeks and loved every second of it. I would love to go again.
Not sure what I need to do but I will figure it out.
Have fun!
