A friend just saw some of my pieces on a clip of Nate Berkus. I had to share! The girl is from Chicago and purchased two of my canvas pieces to decorate her house.

If you haven’t visited Burano, Italy you should check it out on your next visit to Venice, Italy. Its a quick boat ride away from Venice and well worth it. The houses are all different colors and everyone takes pride in their house. The windows and doors are decorated to match the houses. I came across this house that had the laundry hanging outside and the bike parked out front. Classic Burano, Italy
A few years ago on a trip to Paris I took a bike tour. We went in and out of the narrow streets, across the Seine, and in front of the Louvre. Even though I was part of a “tour group” I never felt so Parisian. Why you ask? There is something about riding the cobblestone streets on a bike with a basket on the front. All I needed was a stop by a market for a baguette and a bouquet of flowers. Springtime in Paris.
I came across this cafe in the Marais. There are so many reasons why I love it. Inside there is a back room that is quaint with coffee table books and a huge bookshelf. You could spend hours in here! On the outside you can grab a chair outside and enjoy the people watching. Park your bike and stay a while!
You never know what you are going to find on the streets of Europe. I always try to stay off the main path because its where where you find the classic scenes of European life. I happened to come across this street in Geneva Switzerland that had all different types of doorways and shutters. In front of each of the houses were different bikes. They are all so unique and filled with character. Here are two from the same street.
If you look in the window you can see the lace drawn curtain and the iron detail.
There is something about rain in Paris that just makes everything so much better. If you have experienced a rain in Paris you know what I am talking about. I was having a conversation with someone on this cold rainy weekend in Paris and the woman said its just so Parisian for it to rain. I woke up early in the morning and left to walk the streets without an umbrella. I was wondering the streets in the Marais when it started to rain. I did my best to keep my camera dry but I didn’t want to go inside. I found this couple walking arm and arm with an umbrella. I pulled my camera up as they kissed. I missed the kiss by just a second but you can still feel the romance in the air. I love the Paris street they are walking down, the bike on the right, the love in the air, and the rain. Its just so Paris!!
