Paris - All Dressed Up

Hi everyone,

Well we're certainly have a bit of a freezing cold snap here in the UK, car doors are frozen shut, dog walking is interesting!! and husbands with bald heads keep wearing hats in the house !!

So this brought to mind a little Paris in the springtime and what better than a beautiful image from All Dressed Up to make you cheery and fell as warm as toast.

I've chosen to use Paris. You can find this lovely and so many more by the so talented Wendy Burns in the store
