karena -- you do have exquisite taste (and are ridiculously talented!). one cannot go wrong with a party in paris with c&c (look at me, dropping blog names of those whom i JUST followed!).

btw, really enjoyed 'paris at midnight' the new woody allen picture. think you'll enjoy it. not perfect, but good. (i'll write a review to share some add'l thoughts.)

good weekend to you my friend!

Sarah said...

My issue w/ Blogger is that all my followers have disappeared. And I see that yours have as well. :-(

hi Karena, your Paris Post is delightful. All the pictures are great, I love all the treats in the last one, but oh my goodness if I eat to many of them I won't fit into my fabulous pink party dress I borrowed from Anita! I'll absolutely have a glass of the champagne to celebrate Paris, I hope with you.

Oh Karena,
thankyou for stopping by my green and white garden earlier on and leaving a lovely comment.
I did drop by earlier but I couldn't leave a comment...blogger just would not let me! So I'm back to try again.
I must confess, that your last yummy photo has made me gain a few extra kilos!
Gorgeous!

Hello Karena,

First off, thank you for all of the lovely comments. I feel terrible and have so missed my visits to your (and other favorite) blogs... things are certainly back on track now, after such a loss in our family.

As for this post, it is just lovely -- purely Paris and so pretty :)

xoxo,
Sarah

Absolutely so gorgeous! I am rushing about trying to finish the garden before I leave so that it isn't a mess when i get back, and pack and get euros, etc. etc. etc, but I am sooo glad I came. I could just dive into that photo from the pastry shop. How gorgeous! I may have to try and recreate that someday!!
Bon jour!

Bonjour Karena, so nice to have your lovely comment, and I must say how apetising your post is, that champagne rosé is just begging for a nice tall glass! Not to mention the cakes, so chic!

All the very best, hope to see each other more often on blogland. Take care, Lori xxx

Fairfield House said...

Karena,

Seems everyone is having issues with Blogger. Come on over to Wordpress! I love your images. I just came in from gardening all day (95 in NJ) and wish after showering I could slip on one of those beautiful dresses, pop open the bottle of bubbles, and jet over to Paris as quickly as my comment reaches your blog.

Your Friend,
Deborah
