Ah, Lynne I can smell the sweet scent of Provence! Wonderful!xoxoKarenaThe Arts by KarenaEurope: Simply Irresistible Party
LYNNE! There you are....I was way too early in my travels this morning, but it is well worth the wait to come to see you have posted on one of my favorite memories of my life in Provence. I will never forget my trip to Grasse one sunny Sunday. To make a long story short, I met a dear young man (young enough to be my son) who gave me a personalized tour of the distillery. At the end of his personal tour, he took me to the gift shop and bought me a little bottle of perfume....it was such a FRENCH MOMENT that I will never forget.Please leave this post up all week so that others can have the chance to see it and comment?I love your French sensibilities, and like our dear Nélinha, tu es la plus française des Américaines! BISOUS, Anita
Lynne,Bon fête... You have captured an instant in France with your beautiful collection of photos....the pink perfume is named so well... fête de Anita! parfum ... perfection... beautiful like Anita, celebrating Anita, celebrating her link party.
