A Small Black Dress . . . Petite Robe Noir . . .

.
.
.
Very exceptionally, to participate in James Weekend Reflections this week, am posting a photo which I did not take myself ; the Grenouille (Mr Toad's other half) took it last week on her iPhone in Paris. Just across the street from Le Printemps department store. A quintessentially Parisian reflection. Great job, chère Grenouille !
.
I must admit, if I'm posting her photo here, in the spotlight of international celebrity and fame to be forthcoming to her, it is partly to calm her tempestuous temper. For she has found out that I have another mistress. She has known about this blog for some time now, my late nights slaking the thirsts of the blogosphere had finally come to her attention. But now, for some weeks, I've been shacking up with Ms. Facebook (or Fesses de Bouc, as some French say), and la Grenouille somehow got wind of it. I suspect Ms. Blogspot must have sent her an anonymous letter. I even dressed Ms. Facebook up with a new public page which can be peeked at here. (though you will need to log in to Ms. Facebook to see it). Now, I've got to run, before la Grenouille catches up to me with her rolling pin and frying pan to do a drumbeat on my cranium.

Sylvia K said...

Great reflections!

You have been in France too long, Mr Toad: A mistress can be very demanding, especially that Facebook floozy! :-) Félicitations to la Grenouille for that wonderfully Parisian shot! Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Ta moitié sait cadrer et mettre en valeur son sujet, c'est le moindre compliment qu'on puisse lui faire : bravo !

I see La Grenoille has class ... she recognizes style when she sees it and then Click before you know it is captured for tout-le-monde to see. I have just returned from beautiful Paris and ventured into Chez Guerlain for a little spitz of their parfum nouvelle ... utterly irresistible!

That is an awesome shot! I see this whole photography talent thing runs in the family! Very funny post, thankfully for me, my husband has no interest in Facebook, as either a full-time mistress or casual one night stand.

Maybe La Grenouille might consider a blog of her own? That is a fab shot - very posteresque.

The quintessential "little black dress"...with a discreet rolling pin tucked in one's garter and a frying pan in one's décolleté. No woman should be without.

Very cleverly done! (here's hoping....)

Steve said...

You've sold us out for Facebook? But she goes with everybody! She cannot be trusted!

Owen said...

Many thanks everyone, always a pleasure to see your footprints here in the snowy white surface of the comment box.

Steve, do you think she has any socially spread diseases ???

Lynne, I can see you have your next sewing project in the works, a dress with a rolling pin holder and frying pan flap ?

Stickup Artist said...

We must encourage the Grenouille to join the party! She has a great eye!

James said...

Very nice! I can see you aren't the only one in your household that has an eye for reflections.

Figures you post earlier than normal and I respond later. :-)

I liked your Facebook page! (as in officially :liked: it, that is) :)

Pastelle said...

Très belle image de reflets, qui raconte plein d'histoires...

Superbe !
