Pinkified in Paris




Well Eric got me started last week when he featured the gorgeous Galeries Lafayette on his blog. It brought back all of the wonderful sights from last November's trip when we saw it in all of its megawatt splendor at night. I loved the store windows decorated to the hilt for the children. (They even had a little ramp in front of each for them to stand on. See above.). Today a few of the windows. This also brought back some nice memories of the delightful animated windows in downtown Birmingham's Loveman's and Pizitz when I was growing up.

PARIS THROUGH MY LENS CALENDAR GIVEAWAY!
Drop me a comment right here and tell me why you'd like to receive one. Je vais mettre ton nom dans mon chapeau. Père Noël will do the drawing when he stops by on Christmas Eve. Bonne chance mes amis! ( If you'd like to have a closer look at each and every month, go to the sidebar and click on the calendar. Feel free to order hundreds for your dearest amis. )

That kid could just as well be me.

I can't resist your pictures and I certainly couldn't resist having your calendar. Thankfully since I'm not much of a photographer, I can enjoy your artistry. Happy holidays.

Is the little poppet someone we know, Virginia??? Looks about the right size. :)

The stylists must have had so much fun putting these windows together ~ I think the upside-down flamingos are my favourites!

As for your giveaway, how very generous of you ~ I've already pressed my nose to the glass of your gorgeous calendar several times, V. I hope you sell hundreds and hundreds, that's for sure!

Shell,
Non, this is not Eva. She has never seen Galeries Lafayette at Chritmas time. :(

Petrea,
And moi!!! I was right up there with the kiddos.

Anne,
Merci!

Such wonderful photos, and PINK, they are so cute.

I would love one of your calenders to have on my wall, to remind me of my fabulous trips and my wonderful friends who live there.

I didn't even see the giveaway until I read everyone's comments! I want one, too! I don't deserve it, I just want it because it's so beautiful and because I miss Paris.

I want a calendar because I was there when some of the photos were snapped. I really want that calendar. You are my favorite photog. Will that work?

Virginia said...

KD,
Why certainly that counts for something. What a terrific photographer's asst. you were last Nov. I'll bet these photos of Galeries Lafayette brought back memories, oui? We'll work something out! :)

Harriet,
You've bought so many, you do deserve to win!

DW,
Awwww, how sweet!

ET Suzy, I've not thought of pink but the French can talk me into anything! :)
Proud of me for being the GF on Eric's blog yesterday? I was just lucky!

Lily Hydrangea said...

I hope I'm not too late! I'd love a Paris calendar of yours because you take great photographs of Paris & I would get to look at them every day!

Our 3 daughters aged 9, 6, and 4 are pinkified too! Fun and PINK photos! I'd love to win the Paris calender so my wife and I could remember our visit to Paris every day by looking at your Paris calender. I'd like our daughters to learn more about Paris by looking at your calender every day on our kitchen wall. Our middle daughter just did a school project: she sent a paper doll of herself to Claude and Valerie in Paris and he returned the paperdoll with photopages of "Flat Svea" in front of many Paris monuments! C'est tellement formidable! Bonjour d'EAGAN daily photo

Oh my, that is WAY too much pink for me! But, I'm unusual in that sentiment I'm sure...
