a little paris on a thursday

NY Times interview with my favourite Parisienne, Inès de la Fressange.

Also, artist Juliana Santacruz Herrera has been performing pothole interventions in Paris by filling them with brightly coloured braids of yarn. This kind of urban artwork always makes me happy.

Reminds me of a bike I saw in NYC a few weeks ago:

In general blog news, I'm just four days away from the end of term and will be back online after my last exam. By the way, are you doing anything for the Royal Wedding? I'll be in Canada, but have a little champagne and breakfast spread planned for 5 am. So very excited... I can't wait to see the dress. Sarah Burton/McQueen is probably the last designer I would have guessed Middleton to pick (if the rumours are true), but whoever she chose, I am looking forward to seeing the resulting creation.

Have a fun, chocolate egg filled weekend...

pothole art via honestly... wtf

Love this idea of pothole interventions - much needed and also lovely that the sidewalks bleed color rather than refuse! xo bb

BTW, I’m your big fan – your style is really original and I read your blog very often and I just wonder..if we could follow each other.. But even if your answer is “no” I’ll be still your reader <3
