Dreaming of Paris Pink!

Bonjour Soeurs de Bloggerettes!!  Let's take a trip to Paris, oui?
I have already found a great vintage hat box to hold all my girlie things. I gave it the white paint treatment.....added a Paris tag and la' vous allez!

Of course, I had to throw in my pink crinolines.....just in case I am asked to perform at the Moulin-Rouge!

Oh, and a princess cannot forget her tiara and her favorite Chanel perfum and powder....

And of course, a pink slip and a pink rosette and some bling!

Oh, and a fun read, nothing too serious.  I'll read this while practicing my southern french accent.
Wonder how you say "hissy fit" in french????

So, I'm packed and ready to bout you?

Darn, I just woke up from this dream but it's a good thing.
I'm just in time for Pink Saturday!
Be sure and visit our lovely hostess, Beverly at How Sweet The Sound for more pinkilicious.

~~Til' next time.....big pink squishee frenchee hugs~~

debi said...

Sweet!! What a pretty pink post!!

Sherrie said...

I could dance at the Moulin Rouge too, if I practiced and if I had that gorgeous tufted pink pillow that you just showcased a post or two back. It would give me some french inspiration. Bonjour Mademoiselle. Oue est la salle de bain.... I think that is asking where the bathroom is in French. Oh well. Glad you liked the mirror, "Sculptural Bambi". Hey you do all the gorgeous exquisite items and I will take care of the quirky. Oh I have more to show...... Have a great day.

Incipient Wings said...

That was enchanting!!!!love the train case....and who leaves home without her crinolines?? LOL, thank you, what fun!

Gosh, I am giving my age away but we used to wear those petticoats, and if we ran out of starch, we used to use out Mother's sugar (got a bit sticky after a few dances though!!)

Hey Sissie DolI, I want everything you have shown today. The white hat box is so neat and the Pink lacy crinoline is a must have. You certainly find some great things. Another thing your headers are always so amazingly beautiful.... ALWAYS!! I love the changes you do with them.

MOLLYE said...

Good Morning Sister. You remind me so much of an old hillbilly guy I knew years ago and he and his wife would say they needed to paint a room and we'd ask him what color they were going to paint it and he'd say "Well you know ther ain't but two colors and they is White an White". You do wonderful things with your white and whites! Hugs, Mollye

The Polka Dot Closet said...

Oh Sissie I love the hat box! Thanks for stopping. The ornaments were made out of doll shoes, you wrote baby shoes, I am sure you meant doll. I have been to Paris, but not since I have become enthralled with all things shabby, I would love to go back to the Paris flea markets! Bucket list! LOL
