Dearest Fifi:

My plans to travel abroad have been delayed due to several unscheduled inconveniences. Addressing them is unavoidable or I most certainly would! And so, it would seem, we are both staying state side and since you have not seen me in so long, well, I know the other day we got together but, Fifi, that just seems like ages ago, I think we should meet for a lovely luncheon at the Bel Air Hotel. I can catch you up on everything that is going on in my life and we can talk about you, too!

Your latest pieces are just fabulous, Fifi! I think I see one or two that must be added to my very extensive collection. I will have my people call yours.

Sincerely,
Petunia who detests dealing with any of the unpleasantries of life and thinks tomorrow she will hire more people to do that for her.

Dear Fifi,
If it makes you feel any better, I, too, am unable to travel at this time...just too many obligations!
I will dream of Paris with you as I peruse my many French decorating books and daydream of being in the midst of the most beautiful chateaus in the countryside.
Do not fret, however, we will soon be able to visit our beloved city...very soon!
Do you think Petunia would mind if I invited myself to lunch with you at the Bel Air? that way we could all catch up and cheer each other on!
Your new paintings are beautiful...but then, they always are.
Tah, Tah...for now dear!

Debra said...

A lovely escape with your delightful paintings. It seems this is to be a busy week for our Fifi. We'll need a bit of rest come weeks end, don't you think?

TRES BELLE said...

Penny @ The Comforts of Home/Lavender Hill Studio said...

Your paintings are just beautiful and make me long for Paris too. We checked online the other day and a round trip ticket from Charlotte NC to Paris was only $532.00. Now if I only had an extra $532 lying around!

I always enjoy your paintings, Fifi, and these are no exception. Colourful and whimsical! Because he's been to Paris I had to show your paintings to my husband in the hopes that they would entice him to return... bringing me this time of course!!

Thanks for stopping by DesignTies and commenting on my archway remodel... always appreciated!!

So beautiful....and I hope you have a wonderful day of golfing!

Debbie @ ribbonwoodcottage.blogspot.com said...

Loved your paintings! I have been looking at french cross stitch sites...some of them cross stitch french pictures (not as detailed as the paintings) but I love the look of outdoor pastry restaurants, or coffee places....your paintings really captured the feel and I love it. Hope your week is wonderful!
Blessings,
Debbie

And my parents are visiting from Paris right now...spoiling me a bit. You know, to stimulate the economy!!
Sorry I have been (reading) silent lately. I am enjoying your posts everyday though!
