Dearest Mimi,

Certainly those doors are masterpieces of perfect wood carving and gilting!
Lovely to share this cultural highlight with all of us.
Have a great week and love to you,

How very lovely. Doors in France are always beautiful, in the city or in the countryside. I love them all. Sighs, yes mine..........

Dearest Mimi,

It has been such a long time Martha!.., Sadly as you know, it is almost impossible to keep in touch with all of the precious hundreds of followers and lovely people that we meet in blogland!

I just posted a Pink Parisian themed blog post on my Silken Purse blog recently, and thought of you!.., Wondering how you are?.., and so delighted that your beautiful online magazine worked out so well.., It's lovely!

~(I have been unwell and had to have two blood transfusions three months ago.., Yet it was coming on for some time and my energy was waning, waning, fading).., I am much better now thank God!

Please do come by for a visit dear lady and say kindly..,'hello', to an old blog friend; it would cheer me so to hear from you dearest Mimi!!

Remember the old days when I would encourage you to hold forth that as a new blogger you'd certainly do very well in no time at all?.., Now look at you!


Hugs, Wanda Lee

Merci!
