Impressions of the Fall

M.'s favorite in this series...

Wow! It's been really fun reading all those sweet comments on my last post and the one before that. That and the fact that my last tutorial was featured at One Pretty Thing, Whip Up and CraftGossip makes that I must have grown at least a couple of inches from happiness... Thank you so much, everyone!

Today I wanted to share some fall pictures with you, now that I finally figured out how to make diptychs in Photoshop Elements 7.0 (I accidentally bought a French version - not easy when all I'm used to is software with the interface in English).

We made a long walk last weekend, which took us from the "Allée des Cygnes", a little isle in the Seine, not too far from where we live, all the way up to Eiffel Tower and the Champ the Mars, and back home again after having some hot chocolate. Unlike the last couple of days, where it's been mostly gray and raining, last weekend we had the most gorgeous fall weather. I just love those sunny autumn days where all you need is a jacket and a pair of sun glasses.
No way we'd spend all day staying inside.

No way I'd leave the house without my camera...

Oh, and before I sign off for the week: Today's also my dad's birthday. He's turning 66. Gelukkige Verjaardag, Papa!

Wishing you a wonderful and hopefully sunny weekend! Make sure to check in on Monday as I'll announce the winner of the Blog Anniversary Giveaway! Make sure to sign up if you didn't do so already!

Double cheers,


Lace-trimmed blue skies... (no tweaking with saturation levels, nor filters - that's the sky we had...)

I don't particular like pigeons - flying rats, as we say - but this one was nice enough to sit still and pose... I kind of like its feet.

Bench and Seine, in perfect harmony...
