Fashionable Friday : Shall We Dance

Hello, vague nod to Italian backdrop of uncertain precise location.  For some reason, I'm thinking Milan, but we can be anywhere you like.  Really.  As long as we have one pigeon, we're cooking with gas.  {No-one tell the pigeon, please.  Some things are too hard to explain.}

A single pigeon makes a fetching dance partner.  A flock ?  Not so much.  Kitty is here for crowd control purposes, lest I have a pigeonesque repeat of the Chook Feeding Incident of the summer of 1976 from which my sister and I are unlikely to ever fully recover.

If the idea of dancing brings out the 'bah humbug' in you, at least our black and white attire is colour coded to that particular boiled lolly.  Come to think of it, Eliza/Audrey might want to join us. Her hat can find a boyfriend. And on that note ...

Happy Fashionable Friday to you !

  1. It's Friday already!

    I'll tell you a story, but please don't tell the pigeon. When we were in Paris, one day we had lunch at the lovely and upper crusty Le Pré Catelan in the Bois de Boulogne. John had the pigeon. He liked it. To make a long story short: I love France, but I haven't yet come to terms with the food.

  2. Indeed, Petrea ~ Friday 'my time' for a refreshing change, rather than Friday 'your time' which comes in very handy when I've run out of Friday 'my time'.

    I imagine the ceilings decorated by Caran d'Ache are rather exquisite, too ! You and me both when it comes to some of the more exotic French food predilictions. I don't eat kangaroo, either ~ which is illogical as Ella eats Skippy every day, but I can't do it !

    1. Skippy? I remember that brand - haven't seen it in years. That along with Kitty Queen which had the best illustration.

    2. Ah, PA ~ when Australians say 'Skippy', they are usually referring to a TV show from the 70s called Skippy, the Bush Kangaroo. I suspect not the same as your Skippy. ;)

  3. Nobody told me about cooking with gas either - I looked it up and like it. Soon it will be part of the Irish vernacular, all thanks to the pigeon.

    And I love the gallivanting girl's skirts; they remind me of the very best and biggest and laciest handkerchiefs of finest linen. It is a very happy picture.

    1. Maybe I should create a cookware line as an homage to the expression, dear Mise. And with each one sold, we can include a set of linen kerchiefs for those who want to make some replica skirts for their dolls.

  4. Ah, a happy dance! She looks like so many of us felt last week when our Supreme Court decided Love Wins. Meanwhile, I'd much rather dance with a pigeon than eat one!

    1. Damn straight, Alexa ! :) Love Wins ~ I'm hoping we'll follow suit here tout de suite, ma chère. And long overdue. As for our pigeon, based on current consensus, she/he is very safe from the baking dish Chez Shell.

  5. The pigeon seems to be a splendid dance partner! And good that Kitty is keeping an eye on things (you're right - a flock would bring up visions of "The Birds"....)
    I think I'll pass on eating pigeon at this time.... (I hear they taste like chicken... ;-))

Merci, grazie, thank you for joining our conversation lounge. Your smile lights up the room. Even more beautifully than our crystal chandelier. x
