A Piece of French Whimsy

A small package arrived from Fifi Flowers this morning. I am not a calendar girl, if you know what I mean,:) :)... but this small calendar caught my eye and are perfect for a tiny space next to my laptop so I don't have to flip through my diary. I bought them from her ETSY store.

Fifi Flowers describes herself as a painter of Whimsy and Fun with a Parisian Flair. That's why I like them, they are bright, they are fun to look at and they do remind me of Paris!

 The roses that I bought at the markets yesterday and posted about here are in full bloom this morning. Not only do they look fabulous they are so fragrant and the scent is divine.

Have a fabulous day today!

that calendar is very cute and your roses bring out the pinks in the pages.

Litle bits of beauty coming out in Brisbane ... we had a butterfly emerge from a chrysalis today ... all through the rains it was protected in its cocoon and today it flew off to live its life, oblivious to everything.

Hi Pam,

I love the calendar very sweet, im going to Paris for the first time in September for my 40th with my girlfriends and were are just in the process of arranging it so that was really nice to see ;-) And what beautiful roses reminds me of long summer days, its been raining here for a week now so to see the roses was very up lifting. Have a lovely week, Dee x

Hi Pam, what lovely roses - like your new calendar too - thanks for sharing.
Had a great time reading through some of your older posts - what a great story about the potatoes. We definitely need some good news stories like this at the moment.
Wishing you a great week. Michelle

Oh the talent! I wish I could paint like that and come up with a style with as much charm and character. Great calendar.

Love your photos too Pam, your roses are looking very happy and well cared for! I bought some yellow ones last week that wilted within a couple of days...Mmm.

Hope you're having a lovely week so far and I think your volunteering is wonderful - such a role model for your children. I bet they're proud of their Mum! :-)

p.s. do you think the beans on CK should be spilled ;-)
