Even 'Parisian' Dummies Have Feelings

A Little Window Shopping
From The Other Side

Clothilde sits in a shopfront window on rue Saint Andre des Arts, Paris. Yes she does get to live in Paris and see the beauty of the tiny shops that line her street and watch the fashionable jetset as they pass by her window... But don't be too jealous.. She never gets to wander those streets. Nor sit at a sidewalk cafe or just take a walk to stretch her legs.. [oh! that's right.. she doesn't have any legs]. Her name might not even be Clothilde.. No one really knows... It's tough being a shopfront mannequin.. Even in Paris

I promised you some more distractions..  Although this was a distraction from my distraction.. With luck there'll be no more distractions for the original distraction that was distracting me! And on that note ...

Have A Great Weekend

And think yourself lucky your not Clothilde

And Thanks everyone for the lovely comments on my last post..
I will try and make some of these creations available to you in the future..

She's as beguiling as a Flaubert heroine. May your distractions be happy ones, dear Julie.

Hello Julie

A beautiful tribute to Clothilde, a great name for a clothing Goddess. If she could only speak. Julie, that might make a great blogging point of view: "What Clothilde saw". She could be your Paris assistant.

Have a delightful weekend.

Thanks for the inspiration always.
