Ever find something and pass it up because you thought it was too expensive? Then later kick yourself for not buying it? Well, this particular day I found a tiny pair of pink satin ballet slippers, the smallest I had ever seen, even for a child. And I passed them up. What was I thinking? Yep, I still think about those pink slippers.
Here I am having my portrait drawn in Montmartre, the famous area near the Sacre Couer where the artists hang out and scoop up cash, I mean, sketch your picture. Let's just say it looked nothing like me.
Here I am floating down the river seine on a dinner cruise boat...what a fabulous night it was! And I wore a pink dress people! Pink dress! Come on, that's dedication. I didn't even KNOW about Pink Saturday at the time.
And here I am with Monet's famous "Les Coquelicots" painting in the Musee D'Orsay museum... I have a special place in my heart for it. My Italian great Grandmother gave me a satin wallet with this picture on the front. I cherished it and still have it today! I don't know why, but I teared up when I saw it in person. Kind of like "Someone pinch me because I am standing in front of the REAL thing!"
It was a special moment.
Thank you for taking the time to come along with me for a look back at my PINK fling in gay old Paris!
And a BIG BIG BIG thank you to Beverly for featuring me on Pink Saturday today!
