Spring in the City

Green and Gold Delivery
Cartier Store at the corner of
Graben and Kohlmarkt

Remember Yellow and Celeste?
Hermès Boutique

Every time I walk by that store,
I swoon.
Lucky me, there's no charge for that!

Gold Leaf Macaron
A cookie with its very own jewelry
Have I ever mentioned that I am
hopelessly, passionately .... oh well,
Zum Schwarzen Kameel!
I shouldn't spell any secrets
in my bewitched state.

Woman with an Attitude
Dreaming of summer in turquoise
while waiting for the streetcar.
One of these days I shall
ask her out for coffee.

Escada at Graben
Petersplatz window

Hermès Boutique
Shouldn't there be a law
against walking by the Hermès store
with an orange bag?

A Touch of Orange
Cafè Corto e Nero
Wiedner Hauptstraße 48
4th District


Clicking on the images
brings more color

  1. I covet Hermès in Spring!
    Give me the blues.
    Blues on purpose....says Nina Simone.

  2. I love all those flashes of turquoise.. so vivid.

  3. These pictures are pure glamore. I never get tired of seeing your posts. Beautiful.

  4. Hi Merisi,

    I have added Vienna to my places to see wish list after seeing your blog and beautiful photographs.

  5. the little gold leaf looks like an angel

  6. Wonderful window shopping with you and then to end .. a cup of coffee!

  7. I am afraid to venture too far into your wonderland of magics upon magic (what lies behind and beyond...)lest I never find my way back. But would that be such a bad thing?

  8. Love, love, love the colors! Happy Spring!

  9. I'm not sure I'd like to date that woman with the attitude. She looks like a real talker.

  10. I love the confluence of turquoise in Vienna (is that a word?).


Thank you for taking the time to leave a note.
