Bonjour !

After a week in Paris and a week of acclimatising back to Brisbane life, I'm still dog-paddling in escargot-spirals and dreaming of croissants aux amandes, sipping champagne with our balcony view of the Eiffel Tower sparkling on the hour in the evening, sipping champagne and eating plump, glorious berries overlooking the Louvre (are we seeing a trend here?  Oui!}, carousel rides in les Jardins des Tuileries and le Jardin du Trocadéro ~ and so much more. 

It was lots of fun cobbling together my semblance of French to chat with the charming and friendly Parisians we met, including a darling love in her 80s with the most magnificent hat and so adorable, I wanted to tuck her under my arm and bring her home!

I'm looking forward to settling back into my studio and hitting the drawing board to bring you lots of fresh illustrations to brighten your day.  Meanwhile, here's one I made before .... with the addition of our resident cheeky Bentley, the photobombing French bulldog.  (Please click here to enquire about commissioning a beautiful, unique custom portrait illustration of your own furry friends.)  Wishing you a beautiful weekend, wherever your dreams may take you.  Keep taking baby steps towards them.  They really can come true.  And on that note ...

Happy Francophile Friday to you!


  1. It looks like you had a wonderful time! While you were gone, a French bulldog moved in down the street from us. He and Wilma have been barking at each other from a safe distance.

  2. Aww, how adorable is that ~ are your new little Frenchie neighbour and Wilma friends now? We had an amazing time, dear Petrea - thank you!! x0


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