Thanks, Bloggers!

Marie, whose blog is an exquisite treasure trove, has just settled in Paris and yesterday I invited her to meet Benjy and have tea with homemade strawberry-peach crumble... I was thrilled to meet her! She spoilt me with wonderful strawberries and a bouquet of pink peonies. My favorite flowers, in that Schiaparelli hot pink I love - bliss!
Thank you, Marie...

I am a fan of Artycho's lovely creations and was delighted today as I received my first order from this artist and seamstress based in the English countryside. The navy blue Victorian-style bonnet, a model she named after me (!), is perfectly crafted, unbelievably pretty, and came in the most beautiful package ever! I'm eager to wear it - it's ideal for a someone with sun-sensitive skin like me. The talent of bloggers such as Artycho never ceases to amaze me. Thank you, Artycho!


Finally I'd like to thank Kwana, who like me owns an adorable pocket-size pooch, for giving me this Arte Y Pico award.
The icing on the cake: this award originated with a Uruguayan blogger!

Mary-Laure said...

LAURA - yes I hope to wear it on the Croisette!

KARINA - meeting other bloggers really is wonderful; I've met only amazing people through blogs.
I'll wear the hat I think with a very simple outfit, just jeans, a white t-shirt and some pretty sandals.
Let me know if you have any style suggestions!!!

MARIE - we must get together as soon as I come back at the end of next week...

Dear Mary-Laure it is I that thank you for your fidelity and trust in me! I love the picture of you wearing the "Mary Laure" bonnet you have inspired me! Also I feel very honoured that the bonnet is going to see La croisette!

Wow, you've met so many fellow bloggers, havent you? great!

Sofia Barao said...

Love your bonnet :) and YES that would be wonderful if we could meet one day. I live outside Paris, in a beautiful quiet town near Auvers sur Oise and I work there at a museum, unfortunatly I have almost no time off during the exhibition (not even on weekend) but end of september I'll be on holidays for 2 long months :) and I go often to Paris on my free time, maybe we can meet by that time !

Sofia Barao said...

forgot... Yes I bought a cute paire of shoes that are not even my size but too pretty to let them there :) , some cute plates and a cute pink bottle and some old (from 1920's) journals "Le petit echo de la mode". Picture coming soon :)

Mary-Laure said...

ARTYCHO - thank you for telling me I inspire you and naming the hat after me... You're the best!

ANONYMOUS - yes, I've met:
Ronda from All The Best
Josephine from Tango Baby
Pia from Pia Jane Bijerk
Marie from La
and they were all super wonderful!

SOFIA - I hope you'll post your purchases on your blog and that we can meet after the summer in Paris! It would be fun...

I heart peonies so much and this one here is stunning. I would love to have access to your sweet hats for just one day. Your hats and a camera...that would be nice.
