Umbrellas for a Rainy Day...

Monday was a rainy day in my part of the world... and while visiting fellow bloggers... Bonjour Madame told her followers about various movies to watch... and this is the one I decided to view via Netflix.com ...
J'adored the decor... this jeweler shop with a ceiling filled with chandeliers... oooh and pink walls...
the COLOURS in this film are AMAZING... and Catherine Deneuve is gorgeous...look at this wallpaper... reminds moi of a Matisse work of art...more bright wallpaper...
and love the set... the shops...

ooooh and the colour of this cafe... I don't think orange can be any louder... and I ADORE it!
Yesssss... this film was filled with inspiration for moi... sooooooo... I painted Les Parapulies de Cherbourg (painting is available email me for information... would make adorable notecards too!)... ENJOY your day... and if it is raining outside... don't forget your umbrella!

Found you on SITS...no rain in our neck of the woods today, but tomorrow is to be horrid. Rain, thunder, lightening. Not a good day to venture out even with an umbrella!:)

Bonjour Fifi,
As much as I would like to take credit for this wonderful film series, it was actually presented on lovely Stephanie's blog at Bonjour Madame!
Stephanie is so full of fabulous and interesting posts that I wish I had thought of but alas I cannot.
Honest mistake, it happens to the best of us - I'm usually the queen of them. Just thought I'd clarify so everyone can check out Bonjour Madame!
Have a great week Fifi!

I'm so glad you got to see the film! The colors are amazing and note how the wardrobe matches the decor. It's a technicolor like dream! Thanks for the mention!

Fifi, agree -- all the photos are way "goovy!" Wonder what ever happened to Catherine Deneuve? I used to think she was sooooo gorgeous! (still do)

I love a room with pink walls and gorgeous lighting...I am trying very hard to keep the walls in my studio white but in my heart I feel they should be pink!!
love all the images above.
