Passing a morning in Le Jardin de Luxembourg was refreshing and calm, and we couldn’t help but to steal a glance at this incredibly chic Parisian enjoying her newspaper au parc.
A walk past Notre Dame, where we always notice some new, small detail in the exquisite stonework.
Every time we come to Paris, we romanticize (well, everything) how wonderfully charming it would be to live along the Seine in one of the fantastic boats anchored by the quais. Now where would we put all those jewels?
A gorgeous sunny day for a stroll in the Tuileries en route to see an exhibition of jewels au musee…
Unexpected street art reminder of exactly how we feel about this beautiful place.
How is it that even a simple pot of flowers and water spigot can ooze charm and character in this lovely city of courtyards?
Les bouquinistes along the Seine always offer intriguing and lovely items…and we are definitely drawn to old books and prints. This vendor had beautiful editions of natural history publications…from mollusks to moths, we browsed and delighted.
Truly. Amazing. Our love of fromage cannot be overstated.
An antique door knocker complete with jewels? Might be our favorite thing about today. (Until our cheese course at lunch, that is…)
Then we saw the rows of incredible beauties inside and knew we’d found something special…vintage lovelies from Paris? Oui! Buckles, buttons, beads…and more to come.
A tiny bit of vintage shopping aux puces today…we knew we’d found a soul-mate of a shop when we saw the sign made of vintage buttons and sequins.
