Beaucoup de Couleurs

crayons de couleur


Merci, the very trendy concept store in the Marais, has the most wonderful displays. Maybe it's the former teacher in me, but I wanted one in every color!

At first glance I thought that these were rods of glass rather than pencils. This shot makes me want one of the bright vases stuffed with all the colors -- all sharpened of course!

This photo is just plain pleasing to my senses—of order, of color, of aesthetics—and so beautifully composed! Thanks, V (must check out this store).

Moi aussi -- give me one of each! Gorgeous pencil rainbow.

Shell Sherree said...

Yes, please! I'll be outside warming up the Fiat while they ring these up for you, V.

I am SO bummed that I never made it to Merci, especially now seeing this fabulously colorful display you captured. I'll meet you there next trip!

Daryl said...

That was my reaction ... I want one of each and I am not a former teacher ..

Hi Virgina,
I've mentioned you in my latest blog post because I really admire your blog and as part of the "One Lovely Blog Award" I thought of your blog. You can read more about it and your blog on mine.

My all time favorite street in Paris is a little one called the rue Pont Louis-Philippe, off the Marais, where many shops specialize in special pens, papers and blank books for writing. Your photo reminds me I'm due for a trip.

Great shot Virginia with " de très belles couleurs" (with a "u" after "o").

Virginia said...

Thanks Laurent, i can't seem to get it altogether at the same time. I count on all of you to keep me on my toes!

Okay, V—almost said something, so next time I will.

Moi aussi, je veux bien un crayon de chaque couleur!
Je suis aussi un professeur à la retraite! Mes élèves auraient pu faire de beaux dessins avec ces crayons de couleurs!
