This is a very important “Friday Favourites” for me…

Have my colours grabbed your attention?!?

Drumroll please…I finally pulled a Blog Roll together!

I’m so chuffed with myself 🙂  Still haven’t figured out how to run it down the side without the text going thru my photos, but baby steps…

If you go to my heading at the top of of the page, you will find a new tab called “SLIM’S PICKINGS”

You’ll find my List there.  Please take the time to visit all these fun destinations when you have a chance.  Thanks so much again to many of you fellow bloggers that have been linking to me since January.  If I’ve left anyone out, please know my “Pickings” are still very much a work in progress, much like me.

I’ve had SO MUCH FUN playing in this new world and I look forward to getting to know you all better.

May your days be as bright as this post!!

xx Slim

PS.  If this is ever me, you’ll tell me right??  Pinky swear?

  1. SP. I think this is my favourite so far. The clip reminds me of the indian festival of ” Holi “. And that Paul Smith rug is the same pattern as my Paul Smith wallet……….just love it !!! Colour, Colour, and more Colour. Thank you. ox

  2. Such a wonderful, colorful start to my day. Thank you! I especially like the AGA and I do “pinky swear”!
    From the old world…are you familiar with the English “Country Living” magazine. It is totally delightful- http://www.natmags.co.uk ( then click on Country Living ..2nd down I think).
    Happy weekend!

  3. How can i tell you about looking anyway if i do not know what you look like, miss mystery friend ! I swear I have seen that woman before….Did you shoot her in NYC?
    And that video , what torture that poor model. Seriously models really have a had job its not fun.I have art directed so many photoshoots with models that were in really uncomfortable conditions and doing really contorted positions for long hours. People do not give them enough credit, especially the mind numbing boredom of most of it.
    But any…how……the colors really perked up my day thank you!

  4. Well, you have made my day, Slim Paley. I LOVE color, and I almost fell over when I saw my little blog on your blog roll!! I am truly honored. Thanks for all the inspiration you’ve given me, and now this too! Hope your weekend is wonderful….

  5. MMAAAAAHHHRRRRVVVELLLLOUSSSSSSS!
    No that will be me! You dont have to tell me.
    Have a fantastic weekend…swimming weather is here!!!!

  6. What a delightful start to a stunning weekend! Loved the video, the models, fabrics… everything. I guess that sweet lady just couldn’t choose one piece to discard before leaving home.
    That may be me for sure, a little bit down the road!!!
    Great Post slim. Enjoy the rest of your weekend. Oh what a beautiful morning xo

  7. From a person who thinks that white has as many colors in the spectrum as a rainbow, I Love this post! It is so alive and fresh. Great pics.

    • AHHH!!! Thank you Erik for letting me enjoy the rest of my day in peace…
      until I forget the next thing 🙂
