A Summer in Paris

How many of you have ever spent a summer in Paris? How many of you wish you could spend a summer in Paris? I think most of us romantacize the city. But hey, that's what we do when day dreaming of far away places. It makes us smile. I may not be spending my days walking the streets of Paris, but this summer I will be coloring the streets of Paris, thanks to the wonderful and amazing Limner. Confused? Well, keep on scrolling and you'll see what I mean in a second.

An envelope from Limner. On the other side it reads: Do not open until package arrives.
Fortunately, both the envelope and the package were in my mailbox yesterday.

The package. Notice the FYI in the lefthand corner. It stands for: For Youthful Impulses..... I like it. I also really like the map paper. I wish you could all feel it because the texture is amazing. It feels like an old vintage linen postcard. 

The contents of the package. Pretty in pink.

What a fun gift to receive.

So many little details to color in. Now you know why I'll be spending my summer coloring in Paris. I will share with you when I've got some of the pages colored in. These are pictures on the backside of the long mural to color in. I will definitely be busy, and I can't wait.

I also received another letter from Cat on the same day. I love having mail in my mailbox.

Her hand drawn characters are so cucte. I love all the different expressions. My favorite is the cat on top. He just looks worn out and relieved to be resting.

I've heard about these colouring books for adults, but I've never seen one. Have fun exploring Paris!

Yea! I'm so pleased now. You like it! It's not Nashville but I think you'd like a place like Paris too.

I mean to leave a comment before but the phone rang and I forgot to return. Sometimes I follow where my mind leads and I end up back where I started.

You sound like such a fun person. :)
