Baguette Burglary at the Paris Boulangerie with French Bulldog and Black Cat : Fashion & Fluffballs Illustration © Shell Sherree

Today's illustration sees a heist of the light-pawed variety.  It's amazing what can be achieved without opposable thumbs!

Care to join us in Paris while our cat burglar leads a trusting French bulldog astray?  Fishing for crusty compliments is one thing .... fishing for crusty baguettes is entirely another.  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you !

Time for a glam weekend ... we've a plethora of paper parasols for your potion of preference ~ and you can leave your shoes at the door.  Barefoot and ballgowned is always welcome Chez Shell. 

Today's fashion and fluffballs blue gown glam illustration includes a dear Klee Kai friend of ours named Leo and a chandelier-filled interior with a garden view.  My signature 'smiling eyes' style doesn't show off the amazing blue windows to Leo's soul .... but you can see them in all their glory when you visit him and his beautiful cohort Lady Como at @ComoAndTheCity.  You'll get lost in them for a while.

So come, let us throw Ol' Blue Eyes onto the start of our playlist and clink glasses in style.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashion & Fluffballs Friday to you !

PS:  Step into this cocktail party in your imagination any time by adding it to your wall.  Please order your gorgeous fine art print here.

What is it they say about never working with children and animals ?

Just when you have that perfect shot of Café de Flore lined up, someone wants your undivided attention!  Today's illustration of this iconic spot in Paris ~ one of the oldest coffee houses there, hangout of writers, artists and philosophers back in the day, along with its rival of sorts Les Deux Magots ~ has been photobombed by one of my adorable French bulldog besties on Instagram, @bentley_the_frenchbulldog.  But who could be cross with a cutie pie like this?!  Please go visit this sweetheart and he'll put smiles on your dials.  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you !

Café de Flore
Cnr Boulevard St Germain et rue Saint Benoit

Coffee, Long Island Tea or me?

Actually, you're more likely to find a Greek Mohito or Santorini Sunrise here than a Long Island Tea, but let's not split cat hairs!  From our armchair travels, we've alighted here ~ so let's whip white linen tablecloths into sundresses and pull up some chairs.   And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !

PS:  Gaze upon your walls and armchair travel to your favourite destinations with a lovely collection of Shell Sherree prints here, available for your ordering then viewing pleasure ... yes, my carrier pigeons deliver them worldwide. Merci, grazie, thank you ...

There's more than one way to smuggle fluffy stowaways onto a carousel in Paris.

Today's Paris illustration sees a violet gown of some enormity providing cover for a doggy day care's worth of willing participants ... with luck and a good sense of direction, hopefully a few more will emerge before the ride is over.  On second thoughts, they could need a cut lunch and a compass.  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you !

Francophile Friday Paris Illustration : Swinging at the Tuileries

If the gardens you love don’t have an available swing, your own you can always bring !

Today’s fashion and fluffballs illustration sees us at the Jardins Tuileries.  The package we’re carrying is starting to get impatient – and weighs surprisingly more than her fur coat would have us believe, ahem!  So let’s hope we find a suitable tree to bring welcome relief.

A roster might be in order as this kitty looks like she’s not planning on giving up her seat any time soon.  And on that note …

Happy Fluffy Francophile Friday to you!

Fashionable Friday Illustration : Midsummer Night's Garden Ballet for Tutu

When your ballet moves are on pointe, you can please even the sharpest-clawed of critics.

Today's fashion illustration sees us taking a pink tutu for a spot of ballet in a lavish garden, though it seems we're opting for a midsummer day's dream over the night-time one ... quite possibly because black watercolour is frankly a nightmare to work in and I didn't want to mess up this fun !

So come, let us tie on some tulle and see if our toes can vertically endure the weight of our own engineering.  And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !

PS:  After trialling a fancy schmancy online store to display my artistic wares for a number of months, I've gone back to grass roots and settled back into my Etsy store for prints, originals and pet portrait-related things.  You'll still find a sweet range of totes, cushions and so on in my Society6 store.  Just head to SHOP on the top navigation and you'll find all the links there.  Easy!  Merci, grazie, thank you ...
