Mulot de Paris

The writing is beautifull, you need a fountain pen or more probably a dip pen in order to achieve this result (and a lot of practice :)

If only we had perfect penmanship, and piano lessons in Paris?

And purple ink, of course!


Hello, love. I have been going back and rereading old posts of mine and comments from "old friend" bloggers that I have only sporadically been in touch with. It's nice to come here and visit you again, my friend. Hello again. I love this image.


The handwriting is just beautiful.
Love old postcards and I just know
this one tells a story.

Be still my heart! Love these type of items.

Just read Jeanie's comment and smiled. I loved learning the Palmer Method when I was in third grade. I just knew being able to read and write cursive was going to open so many worlds for me. Now, if my information is correct, I understand cursive is no longer taught or is only offered as an elective. Sad news indeed.


Oh, spellbinding. Such lovely, lovely penmanship.


I've been curious about French penmanship ever since my first visit. It seemed as though every written menu or sign looked the same and certainly this as well. It reminds me of when my mother taught and they all used "Palmer Method" for writing. If you look at a lot of American writing of a certain generation, you see the same characteristics. It's beautiful!

A funny story. You may remember that Rick was hoping to connect with a guitarist who lived in the Netherlands during our visit. They had corresponded on fingering for classical guitar and when Rick received the notes, he kept getting confused -- I think it was 1 and 4 or maybe 7, but the European way of making the numbers was different! Once they got that straightened out, they sounded pretty good!
