Pictures

One of the things I have been meaning to do is order some prints of a few of the pictures I took in France last year to use in my home.

This one is kind of cheating :-).  I took a picture of this original oil Monet painting in the Musée de l'Orangerie.  This way I can have a Monet - sort of -  in my home.  This one is going in the master bath on the wall at the end of the tub. 

The next one is going in the commode area of the bathroom.

These last two are going into my laundry room, that I also use as a potting area, so I thought the flowers would be appropriate.



I ordered them from Kodak, online.  I should receive them in about a week, then I will go to Michael's for frames.  As soon as I get them up, I will do a post on it.

In the meantime, it is still too cold and rainy to work on the dining table and chairs.  Hopefully I will get the table done this weekend.
Welcome Home,
Penny

  3. Wonderful idea ~ the photos are gorgeous! I've been planning on ordering some prints of some flower photos I shot from Kodak, too, so I'll be curious to see how they do with yours. :)

  4. These will all be wonderful. I can hardly wait to see what you're doing. Michael's here is having a fantastic sale on frames...40 to 60 per cent off. Hope that's true in your corner as well.

    Sorry that the weather has been so rotten preventing you from doing the table. We did suffer a fair amount with fumes so I think your way is far preferable.

  10. Oh Penny,
    These are going to come out gorgeous. I really love the one of the flower market too. We have snow today, can you believe it? So, the thought of working outside makes me chilly.

  26. 'Tis not cheating! 'Tis a marvelous idea.

    Musée de l'Orangerie. :-) All museums were closed when we were in Paris, due to the silllllllllly French and their strikes. -Bahh humbug-

    Although, to tell the truth, I was glad museums were closed! I did NOT want to waste a lot of time, looking at things in museums. Heresy, I know. LOL! But I didn't.

    We spent all our time in Amsterdam, a long time ago, in museums. He is a Rembrandt fan and loved seeeeeeeeeing the paintings. Fine. I had fun too, of course.

    But Paris was "my trip," and I wanted to see "the real Paris." The Paris of the people who live there. And we did. Because I had Net-met a young man there, and he met with us 3 times, and took us around. So I could see "the real Paris," which he knew I wanted to see. "Dahh-veeed" was wonderful to us. :-)

    Now, am I forgiven for being glad the museums were closed by strike???????

    But actually, I'd LOVE to have gotten into the Musée d'Dorsay, or however you say it. But I really didn't want to waste time on the Mona Lisa. -evil grin-

    Good luck, sweet lady, on the house numbers sign.
