Carré Story – Regarde Paris

Back in December as I was writing about the carre “Noel au 24 Faubourg”, I also listed my grail scarves. “Regarde Paris” is one of them, designed by Bali Barret in 2006.

What makes my heart beat faster while gazing at this carre is the black and white pencil scratch. It brings back my childhood memories, the days I enjoyed painting so much and spent hours sharpening pencils and drawing pictures… The fact that I finally found it in Paris makes this carre more special for me.

The pop of fresh mint color is just perfect for the Spring! :-)

    Congratulations! My HG dream is Turandot, am hoping so much that it will be reissued one day.

    Very detailed sketch!
    Notre Dame de Paris and Pont Neuf?
    You are a painter by nature!

    Lucky you!
    The pencil sketch somehow reminded me of your b&w night shots in Paris, which made the city look less noisy & more tranquil.

    Thanks you gals. :-)

    Elysium, keep my fingers crossed for you~~

    jibjab, yeah, and there are many more beautiful Paris spots pictured on the scarf. Pretty amazing!

    bobcat, hugs~~ I noticed the quietness too, probably because there are no traffic and people at all. ;-)

    I love this scarf! True… it’s all about the quiet city at its peace, with a restful mint-color accented to the whole piece. Can’t get my eyes off it ;-)

    Mosaic DaveYou may be confusing the terms imospe and expose here. Davey is exposing his opinions to us; allowing us to see them and if we choose to we can try them out. He doesn’t care whether we do or don’t; he’s giving them to us as a gift to do with as we please. Were he to imospe his views on us he would likely tell us that this is how we should think. He would probably tell us we’re bad for thinking differently and possibly tell us we’re destined for ruin or damnation if we continue on our paths. Exposing your beliefs is a way of sharing while imposing them is a way of force-feeding.
