Channeling Chanel


My dear and faithful blog friend Véronique, French Girl in Seattle, is my inspiration today.  My French Life featured some of my Christmas windows this week,  and she commented that tlast year there were some delightful windows at Printemps with little Coco Chanel dolls.  As luck would have it.........voilá!!!  I'd been saving this adorable window for just the right time. Ma chère Véronique... pour toi!

Wow! They do look amazing!

My gosh they know how to do it, don't they. Both whimsical and elegant. And I can't quite tell if the paper is cut or painted - I'm leaning towards painted - but it's lovely work either way.

Ces poupées sont si ravissantes... J'aimerais bien en avoir une avec moi dans ma dollhouse...
Une très jolie décoration de noël...
Je te fais de gros bisous

Je me suis rendue sur "fille française à Seattle... Les décorations sont très surprenantes et tellement atypiques...
Merci pour ce beau partage.
Bisous

My dear Virginia, merci beaucoup ;-) I just came home and found this post... You made my evening and I can now tuck in for the night, my head full of miniature Mademoiselles ;-) Coco Chanel has her own special category on my blog, as you know, and I am thinking my next dog, a French bulldog, will HAVE to be named
"Coco." See how perfect this post was? Hugs to you! Joyeux Noël! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

I wonder what Coco's reaction to these dolls would be?

The Coco Chanel dolls are too chic for words, how cute are the little hats. Gorgeous window display Virginia.

These dolls are adorable! Printemps and Galeries Lafayette must start working on window displays in January! What talented folks. Perfect photo for the season. And Jaques Brel singing in the background.....Joyeux Noel!

Popped over to see those windows, love them! Christmas windows are so much fun... when i lived in san francisco, i always loved browsing union square during the holidays. Gumps was esp cool. Happy Holidays!

Trés chic, mais pas de Noël.

This is delightful. All in beige, and interest in the foreground, center and background. Keep on like this and one of these days you will have photography all figured out.

They had these dolls in the Chanel window in Monte Carlo last year, V. Like you I couldn't resist photographing them.
