Beautiful French Art & Fashion

~*~ A MUST See ~*~

A hint about mine ;)


Also, don't forget to set your Tivos~

The most courageous act is still to think for yourself.

OHMYGOSH..... thank you.... thank you for telling me about this ..... oh Renoir.... I have many many prints of his...... and I see that Monet is yours..... I have tons of books on the Impressionists.... I am running to the DVR and putting it in.....

Suzy said...

Movie about Coco that would be very interesting, but I know you will tell me all about it.
About the art - well I personally prefer rococo and romanticism, but the impressionist are okay (I wouldn't mind owning a piece). Claude Monet would be my favorite of these famous impressionist.

Enjoy your week and have some fun. Suzy

That little flip clip looked very enticing! I hope we can get that movie----as well as Coco C.! Your lacey windows looked so beautiful. Love the softness of the light as it filters through them. Dana

Hi Tracie, Well I have not seen it and I missed the movie on the 13th. I saw the previews and wanted to, but we were busy preparing for the weather. Was it good? Maybe they will run it again.
