Ma chère Diana, tu as su parfaitement mettre du soleil dans ta peinture pluvieuse... Elle est gaie et je viendrais bien partager un verre de bon vin avec toi autour de cette table... Je suis certaine que les fous rire éclateraient!
L'ensemble de tes étiquettes sont craquantes. Ton bonhomme de neige a aussi une belle bonhomie.
Gros bisous à toi et je te souhaite un excellent weekend avec ta petite famille.

What a feast for the eyes!! I love the perspective of your Paris illustration, looking across a table of food to the lady with the umbrella!

Your Christmas tags are gorgeous. Funny, I was in IKEA last Sunday and meant to look for the cookie cutters because I loved what you did with them so much. But then I completely forgot as I was so busy looking for stuff for my new art studio!

Love your painting! I would think Paris might be too far away for a little jaunt this close to Xmas but...
Or the sun by your signature - is that a hint? Maybe Florida?
Nope - no idea.
Lovely gift tags and crafts!

SUNNY IN PARIS is wonderful! It tells such a story and invites the viewer into the piece. Great work! Happy PPF!

WrightStuff said...

Ooh thank you for these gifts! What a treasure you are :)

I watched a film set in Paris (forget the name, but it had Paris in the title) where the lead guy (Ben Stiller's mate with the crooked nose and blonde hair... whatshisface?) said that Paris is always beautiful even in the rain.

My memory is like a sieve these days!!
