Here, have a chocolate, Julie! But just the one. Sugar deprivation seems to bring out the bravado artistry in you, and we can't be doing without that.

Anne Marie said...

you poor thing!

Roberta said...

Hey Julie, I've missed you and your fantastic photos and prose! (my own fault) You've got to see Eat Pray Love. I thought of you when I saw her in Italy and cried when I saw the one scene of all the clotheslines dripping with laundry. The striped Lauren looks beachy and cozy in your littlest bedroom! xoRoberta p.s. ha, be careful!

These pictures are just stunning, Julie! Is spring in the air there for you?


Jennifer Beaudet said...

Beautiful! I love the colors! Jennifer:)

Ann said...

Hi Julie,

Your photographic and computer skills amaze me! How do you even think up all that you do?

Thanks for introducing yourself over at my Rose et Lis blog.

Happy weekend!


Ella said...

I can see Willie Wonka stood you up and you played Candyland with your photoshop! I love it!
How are you?!

Sue said...

Oh...I love these colors. These are really gorgeous!

Who would have thought of making a coastline look like it was covered in sugar - only you my friend.!


Giulia said...

I'm hallucinating. Or you are. I love the greens & pinks & blues...

Off for my own sugar rush...not too too but a bit. Caffeine involved.

Champagne seas and cotton candy clouds. I like it!

Carole said...

I now know that not only my waistline but my photography would be better without SUGAR!
Gorgeous Julie!!!

Oh my Goodness!

These are just dreamy.....Your style is so classy and like no other. I am in awe each time. Why doesn't some of this talent from you gals rub off on me?

Talk this weekend?

uber cool shots...they remind me of abstract paintings. it's always a pleasure to visit your blog, sweety.
have a good weekend!

Beach House Living said...

Wow Julie, these are different from many of your others. I like the first one.

Sorry, little villa life has been problematic for you but you do make me laugh with how you write about it; indoor unplanned water features etc.

Drawn to The Sea said...

Oh, Miss Julie, what have you done?? These are so intriguing... like the sun peeked out at midnight, in search of the moon.

You've earned your sugar, sugar :-)

myletterstoemily said...

Jane said...

Off you go to vote now. That will give you a sugar fix!! xoxo
