MORE Fifty Shades of Pink and Freebies!


Hello Friends!

Are you ready for more pinkness?
As promised, part deux of my photos of the
fabulous Vignettes' "Fifty Shades of Pink" Valentine soiree:
 

Fabulous metal wings:


 Oooh, those shoes:




 




 
 


Ooooh, time to say "au revoir".
And pay up ;)

Since we actually went on the day before the fete, we had to miss out on Kaari Meng,
who was appearing the next day.
And the champagne.  :(
But it was so, soooo lovely.
 
A dear follower has told me that although she doesn't speak French
she has been to my blog enough times that she now
knows the words to my first song and can sing along!
I thought that was so cute!

 
Je ne veux pas Travailler
by Pink Martini
 
The lyrics:
 
Ma chambre a la forme d'une cage
 Le soleil passe son bras par la fenêtre
Les chasseurs à ma porte
Comme les petits soldats
 Qui veulent me prendre
 
Je ne veux pas travailler
 Je ne veux pas déjeuner
Je veux seulement oublier
Et puis je fume
 
Déjà j'ai connu le parfum de l'amour
Un million de roses
N'embaumeraient pas autant
 Maintenant une seule fleur
 Dans mes entourages
 Me rend malade
 
Je ne suis pas fière de ça
 Vie qui veut me tuer
 C'est magnifique
 Être sympathique
 Mais je ne le connais jamais
 
Je ne veux pas travailler
 Je ne veux pas déjeuner
Je veux seulement oublier
Et puis je fume.
 
The translation:
 
My room is like a prison
The sun's rays shine through the window.
Hunters are at my door
Like little soldiers
Who want to take me away.

I do not want to work
I do not want to have lunch
I just want to forget him
And so I smoke.

I already knew the scent of love
A million roses don't smell as sweet.
Now a single flower in my presence
Makes me sick.

I am not proud of of this life
which is killing me.
It is wonderful to be nice, friendly, cool
But I’ve never know how.
 
Interesting, yes?

My apologies for the font changes,
I have been on this computer FAR, FAR too long this morning
trying to fix it.
And it was scary at times...
I lost everything on my sidebar!!  :O
I got it all back,
but I did lose all the comments so far on this post :(
so now I think I am just...going to...leave it as is :)
 
 Next week I will be going to the Vintage Marketplace
in Rainbow, CA, and will have more fun pics for you!
Freebies!

Oh what a beautiful post. I wanted to crawl right into the pictures and live there! Thanks so much for visiting and leaving the nice comment. I guess I'm not the only one who sneaks cookies out of the freezer then, right? I'll try your suggestion too, thank you so much for them. It was nice hearing from you!
Hugs,

It is always a treat to visit your blog. I love that French Valentine shutter . . . and I adore the music.
I have no idea what she is saying, but I love it. It is like when I went to an Italian opera, at one point I was crying crocodile tears, and didn't ever know what I was crying about (she could have been singing about cupcakes in the oven, for all I know). Why is it that music can create such an emotion in our souls?
It's a mystery to me :)
Happy Spring!
Your blogging sister, Connie :)
