Colours

I've always been fascinated by colour, so while we were away I took photos of the stunning way Europeans have of putting together such intoxicating colour combinations.























Toilet rolls on display at the Louvre ... classy.






















Ties in Venice - Mr Fudge grabbed the one in the middle before I had time to stop him!

Food always captured our attention.













Macaroons ... mmmmmm ...


















Even this ancient building in the Roman Forum appeared to be decorated with M & Ms.  I know, I know, but it was late in the day and I was becoming really hungry.

Then there's fashion ...











Our son, now in his thirties, has been terrified of clowns ever since he was a little boy.  No, we didn't dress up in clown suits and scare him in the middle of the night (not that we'd admit to it), so we don't know where the phobia came from. 






















This should make his weekend.

Finally, the cars of Paris ...






















Venice on a wet afternoon ...























... and the Georgian doors of Dublin - superb.

What a gorgeous post! I came across your blog via a comment you left on Anna Maria Horner's blog. Love your little girls dresses and skirts on Etsy! Beautiful. Do you ever make smaller sizes, like 12-18 months or 18-24 months? Take care!

Wow! I love all these but that one of the Georgian doors of Dublin just blew me away! I'm totally smitten with that photo!

So many people have a fear of clowns that it seems that the people who don't fear them are the odd ones out :)

I can't believe they're still making those clown ashtrays - who's buying them??
