Stolen Kiss


I receive alot of questions about the photo above which I use for my blogger name.
It is by Fragonard, "Stolen Kiss". 

Ahhh, très romantique...




Put a Little Ooh La La in Your Life!

Happy Sunday to you, Dear Mimi!
I love that painting! Are you familiar with another beautiful, romantic painting "The Painter's Honeymoon" by Lord Fredrick Leighton? I have seen it in person at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and you can almost hear the crispness of the taffeta of her skirt!

Wishing you a beautiful day in Paris!

Hugs,

Betty

Hi Mimi:

Just coming by to check in and see how Miss Paris is doing! I think of you over there in that beautiful city. Meanwhile, in Texas, we are covered with snow today. It's romantic for 2 days, but this is now 5 days and I'm ready to go OUT!!!

Bonjour!
