First, just cause I thought it was so cute to see a Harry Potter poster in French. This was in the post office (La poste) and translates to, Long live the magic of the stamp and the written word. The scroll says: With the Post Office, you don't have to be a wizard to write!
Now on to this month's series of Project Spectrum colors. First, the metallic: the Statue of Liberty's torch, full size, is mounted on the Alma Bridge. It's gilded with real gold leaf, as are many of the monuments in Paris.
For red, how about a field of blooming poppies? This was a pretty spectacular one, found by our good friend and bus driver Jean-Luc. The man is good-looking and can really drive that thing. He also spends his days off driving around, looking for places he can take "his" tourists. His wife rides along and helps him figure out if the lanes can take the bus.
For black, this little cat with books. I was going to post another picture of Simon, the Black Cat in Residence, changed my mind, dithered around a bit.
Here he is. Underwhelmed by the attention, as usual.
Ah, the problem of the paparazzi--always snapping your picture when you really just want to sleep!
I know, I know--I need to get out some of my red and black and metallic yarns. No problem with the reds--just check back to my Black Sheep treasures; black is a little more iffy, but I know there is some around here somewhere. Metallic? Well, not something I generally knit with. Or wear. Guess I'll have to really dig to see what I can come up with! There's certainly no dearth of yarn around here...
