♥ Paris je t’aime/Paris I Love You ♥

happy to be back on line after an involuntary absence because of Mr M trying to upgrade our computer…

Patty Szymkowicz Thyme Lady and Mr Cardinalthe word “nightmare” sums up that experience pretty well as the new set up was impossible to deal with and very frustrating…

Magpie's Nest Patty Szymkowicz Garden blueswe are now back where we started with a slow computer that can at least be used…

Magpie's Nest Patty Szymkowicz Paris cup I am also sharing two new art journal pages for the Moo Mania and More  PARIS theme…

Magpie's Nest Patty Szymkowicz Paris Je t'aimeI had fun filling the cup with some favorite Paris images decorating with part of a coffee stained paper doily and fabric flowers on a peeled flower napkin over old French text background (Notre Dame was from a French chocolate wrapper, the lady is from The Graphics Fairy, the image on the left is one of Da Vinci’s hand drawings)

  7. Oh dear, we, too, need to get a new upgraded computer and the more I look at new computers, the more confused I am. It seems like it should be simpler now. Oh well…thank goodness for art – your beautiful pages are a feast for the eyes. Your gorgeous backyard is a tranquil, living canvas inviting us in.

  8. Fantastic Paris and T day page. Love all those Paris places in a cup. That sounds like an ad for something. And your flowers are gorgeous. What colors. Too bad about the Internet hook up. Glad you are back. Slow is better than frustration. We are suppose to get some new service next month. We shall see how that goes. Happy T day hugs erika

  24. So glad you’re back online 🙂 I love your garden, it’s so beautiful and charming, the red cardinal (is that correct?) is so so pretty! We don’t get them here in the UK and I’d love to see them close up in person, maybe one day :-). Your Paris inspired pages are just wonderful, I love the beautiful napkin flower images and the teacup. Happy Wednesday! J 🙂

  25. Love the tea cup filled with Frenchness! (is that a word?) I’m guessing he installed Windows 10? But maybe not, cause I don’t think there is any coming back from that. Just glad you are back!!!

  27. Great contrast between your pretty mosaics and flowers, and the awfulness of computer problems. Great that you could at least go back to your slower computer.
    Your Paris-filled teacup shows no sign of the angst.
    Hope Mr. Magpie has recovered from his computer traumas.

  30. I’ll take a slow computer any day over NO computer access. I am just glad I can be back online to say how much I enjoyed Tuesday’s T post. You have some gorgeous flowers in pots, and I can understand how you would want to pare down a bit on the gardens, even though everything I see is always so stunning it often takes my breath away.

    I really loved the art you created and the beautiful tea vignettes you chose to share with us, too. Everything is so lovely, and incredibly beautiful. Thanks for sharing your MM&M art and your tea vignettes with us for T this week. Isn’t it great to be back online?

  32. So beautiful, being greeted here by your blue and pink flower world, which I love . The cardinal seems to love it too 🙂
    Good you could take your computer back to where you started , for it to be in use.
    The spread is equal beautiful as the collage photos, and so wonderful with the teacup filled with French charme . Adorable with the bouquet growing there, and Marie ,too. Love the clock, and Da Vinci`s arms, too, and both in such a lovely romantic world, of roses and paper doily`s .
    Thank you my dear Patty.
    Hugs, Dorthe-xoxo
