Mon Jour de Chance!


Many of you may remember that my talented artist friend Shellsherree, down under in Brisbane, recently used one of my Paris photos to produce a wonderful watercolor illustration, which she posted on her terrific blog. Well, I opened my mailbox a few days ago and voilà! Imagine my delight as I tore away the tissue and pink ribbons and found my very own Shellsherree original in my hands! I plan to frame it and hang it over my dressing table , so I can enjoy it each and every day when I splash myself with my violette eau de toilette. My friend KB recently called me a "girlie girl", I've been called worse.

Merci, merci my dear Shell,
xx

What a nice gift! And I know you like ribbons too, Virginia... About your title, you could also write "Mon jour de chance". I wish you a very good week end.

Virginia said...

Merci Alice!! I will change it right now!! Bon weekend to you as well!

Wonderful photo of a stunning Shell original! I hope that every morning when you see this lovely drawing you are transported to Paris (even briefly).

Unfortunately, she's not offering the one you've featured here. Quel dommage.

Virginia said...

Starman,
When Shell reads that she might just have one soon!

Oh Virginia, I love your photo of my illustration of your photo... LOL! You've styled it beautifully, with the ribbon and wrap as well. Thank you, V, and thank you all for your kind comments!!

I'm getting closer to being able to offer prints at my Etsy store in addition to originals ~ as you wisely recommended, Virginia ~ so yes, Starman, that's a great point. :)

Love your blog, Virginia, though it does make me green with envy. Don't usually comment (perhaps if there were 36 hours in every day . . .). But I had to say this is very special indeed. I just love what Shell does!

Virginia said...

Alexa,
I love my readers!!! When you leave a comment it's even nicer. Feel free to come and go. I have a hard time staying up with all my blog friends as well.

Welcome to the Shell Fan Club!
