My day out in the City

A big crowd had gathered around a little outdoor cafe in the square, so I walked across to see what all the commotion was about and saw this pretty Ice Castle sculpture.
They were promoting a new brand of Vodka so lucky for the the iphone in my handbag I was able to take a few photos.

After I had been for my Dental appointment  there was really not a lot to  see,  what had once been an Ice Castle was now a big pool of water on the paving stones.

Every time I go into the City, I enjoy looking at the window displays of Louis Vuitton  ~
I am loving the spring collection, designed by Marc Jacobs. The daisy fields eyelet lace dresses in the sweetest pastel colours are so pretty.
Could you see yourself in any of these clothes?
Now all I would need, is to win the lottery so I could afford a dress.

Thanks so much for stopping by.
Have a wonderful day

  7. What a beautiful ice sculpture. When I first saw it I thought, hmmm, liquor decanters, well, I guess they were of sorts :)

    I hope you are having a wonderful week!! We're halfway to the weekend!!


  8. All that work for a puddle. Such a shame! Looks like you spent the day well after your appointment. Have a great rest of the week. Tammy

  9. Hi Carolyn!
    The ice sculpture are very nice... eccentric!
    I believe that to buy some clothes that we like ...
    we should win 2 lotteries!

  10. Gorgeous, it is too hot for ice here :-)

  12. Dear Carolyn, Looks to be a fun day spent in the city especially after a dental appt. LOL
    Love seeing the ice sculpture.

  15. I can't believe how much beauty you get to see in your world Carolyn! I am SO glad you were able to get these beautiful photos with your phone.

    I hope you are really having a great week dear friend. It's always so much fun to come here to see you!
    hugs from here...

  16. Yes, those dresses are sooo pricey. Can they really be worth all the money they charge? :)

    Such a pretty ice sculptor and perfect to promote the vodka. Glad you got to see it before it melted!


  17. Awesome pics!
    That ice sculpture is amazing!


  18. It must be a wonderful place there, nice pictures!

    Regards Janny

  19. So beautiful ice castle. And the white blouse is lovely, nice things from your city walk.
    Wish you a happy weekend

  20. Beautiful photographs and thanks for all you share.
    First day of summer here my lovely friend.
    Love you

  21. Ice sculptures are so much fun. This one is really lovely, Carolyn. People are so creative. Always sad to watch them melt. I love sand sculptures too.

  22. Hi Carolyn, looks like a wonderful way to spend the day. Thanks for taking me along.

  23. What a beautiful ice castle!
    And a wonderful city!

  24. Dearest Carolyn, what a wonderful ice-castle - and what a pitty that it melted away: Building ice sculptures is such an ephemeral art ! To create beautiful blouses (or great photos) is an art that has a longer durability :o)
    Warm hugs to you, my dear!

  25. Thanks for taking me along!!
    Hope ALL is well dear Carolyn~~


  26. Hello dear,
    how lucky you are being able to see such fantastic things as ice castles,and creations from famous designers....going to your dentist :-) I have no such things here !!!
    Happy coming week-end dear Carolyn-thanks for the tour sweet.

  27. I am always amazed at ice sculptures. how in the world do they do that? Window shopping can be so fun and really easy on the pocket book. :)

  28. Hello Carolyn...
    It has been a few posts since my last visit.
    Don't you just love the lace?? It is so feminine and lovely. The lottery would definitely change my wardrobe choices!

    I loved the photos of your little vacation spot. It really looks romantic and peaceful. Songlad you were able to get away for a few days.

    Wishing you a wonderful week ahead...
    Hugs, Nancy

  29. The castle ice sculpture is so lovely, Carolyn. That must have been a sight. I especially love this white blouse. White is a favorite of mine in the summer.

  30. Hi Carolyn, I love ice sculputes. It's just a shame that they are mostly made for a few hours only. Have you ever seen pictures of the ice festival in Harbin? These last longer and are so amazing.
    Have a wonderful weekend :-)!

  31. Dear Carolyn, what a great day in the city, that ice sculpture looks as if made of crystal.;)
    Have a lovely weekend and thank you for your kind recent visits and words.;))

    The dresses are beautiful, but alas I am a tom boy and hate wearing dresses.
