Claudine's Hat

When I wear this vintage hat, I feel like Claudine, the cheeky and wild heroine in Colette's early novels.
While the Claudine series can't rival with the masterpieces of Colette's mature years, they are still as fresh, exquisite and creative as when they were first published (and became instant best-sellers). Claudine à Paris, or Claudine in Paris is a perfect treat, while animals lovers can't but fall for the hilarious Dialogues de Bêtes, in which the dog Toby and the cat Kiki comment on their owners' lives.

I love the addings you have made to your blog. Flowers are indeed a simple favorite treat - equal to a "ganache" dark chocolate from a good "chocolatier".
Needless to say I find your "This week's flowers" refreshing. I also find the changes you have made to your blog's name beautiful.
