Found Vintage Photos | Week 25

Montmarte Paris 1952

I came across this photo of Montmartre Paris from 1952 and just loved so much about it. Aside from the obvious (it’s in France, there are painted shutters on the buildings, an old man is painting…) I quite love the outfits the young women are wearing, their plaid a-line skirts and little sweater tops.

Wouldn’t it be lovely to just traipse around this beautiful city with the streets dappled in sun. Ahh, to summer in France or anywhere pastoral really! That’s what this week’s vintage photos are all about. Images of an idyllic summer. Lots of plush green earth, scenes of farmland, lakes glimmering with dusk approaching…

Idyllic Summer

Idyllic Summer


“Hills and dales and of summer hills

green, green grass,  on the vine

frolic through wildflowers

laughter fills the open sky

everlasting until autumn comes”

I’ll be your summer girl

If you’ll be my summer boy

Pluck the petals.

He loves me. He loves me not.
