Parisian Whites

Love all tones of white.
Especially ones that remind me of that special sunlight of Paris
captured here in a vintage book from the Louvre now in my shop

When I visit again
I know what I would like to wear and what my cottage interior
will look like ~ it's all on my

I'll wrap my hair in a French Twist
in a lovely bonnet
with this
vintage French hat pin

while shopping in Paris
I would don a Chanel jacket with a vintage

and return every evening to my cottage
just outside of

Thank you all for visiting the cottage
my shop, that is...

I was packing this morning for a trip and sat down for a few minutes to read some white wedneday posts. Yours inspired me to pack some of my vintage brooches to wear with my old jean jacket. Thank you! :) And a happy White Wednesday
