Gift from Paris through my lens!

In my kitchen i love
to have that Parisienne feel. 
Especially now that i am in a small place.
I like to think of it as a small Paris apartment!
Just like this pretty tin that
holds some of my teas...

One of my favourite blogs is 
Paris through my lens.. .by Virginia.
I love love this blog.
It makes me happy every time i visit.
Virginia is a professional photographer and has spent alot
of time in Paris. I have never been to Paris and hope to visit one day
but until then i live vicariously through Virginia's blog!

She was having a give away of a cool sketch by Paris artist Annie Poon
and i won!!

It is a beautiful sketch and looks wonderful in my kitchen.
The walls in our carriage home are heavily angled so 
i barely have any straight walls to hang things.
The window over the kitchen sink is deep
the perfect place for a vignette.
This is where i have put my Annie Poon sketch!

I love the crispness of the black sketching on white paper...
Even my son absolutely loved it.
So if you have never visited 
you are truly missing out!!

Thank you again Virginia for my beautiful gift!
And thank you
for visiting
Pamela xo

  11. Dear Pamela, you are a dear for linking to my blog. I appreciate the kind words and I'll only add that I've only been at photography for about 4 years. My first trip to Paris in 2007 is what changed my life!
    And for your readers that like Annie's work, she is on Etsy!

    I think your sketch of Cafe Nemours quite at home in your lovely vignette. I knew it would after all.
    Bon weekend dear,

  12. Congratulations on winning that wonderful sketch. I will run over and take a look at her blog so I can daydream about Paris this afternoon.

  13. Im with you! Anything french is great! :D I love the picture, congrats on winning!!!


  14. You have so many pretty things Pamela and have them displayed together perfectly!
    I hope you are enjoying a wonderfully warm weekend!

  15. Terrific luck! You've set up a lovely little french scene and the sketch of the cafe is so fitting. I visited Paris through my lens - beautiful photography that just makes you want to visit France all the more! My daughter who lives in England vacationed in Paris and loved it!

  16. hi, suppose allow to me to have a suggestion, when you design any custom make stuffs or gifts for your customer, we can realize it to be the product for you, we produce a lot of the DIY custom made gudgets from china, reference of our site:
    so, the designer sell their idea and we custom make the product even there is only 1 pcs!

  17. Hi Pamela! You sure have a nack for decorating even the smallest space! Very pretty. I look forward to heading over to that blog when I get a chance. Have a great weekend!

  18. An adorable line drawing!
    Very Parisian.

  19. What a lovely piece of art to put in your kitchen, it's perfect there.
    Have a lovely day.
    Hugs, Cindy

  20. What a lovely place to live. I've been to Vancouver Island a few years ago and loved the gardens. Love the sketch too. So glad you won it! Keep dreaming of Paris and you'll get there. Joan

  21. That is a sweet picture...and it looks lovely where you have it!

  22. Hi Pamela. I am so sorry that it took me a while to visit and return the blog following but am so happy that you stopped by via Sharon's lovely blog Roses and Rust and leading me here. Thank you.


  23. I love Paris Through My Lens and her insights into the city. She has a fantastic eye!

  24. Virgina takes beautiful pictures. I most say.
