Strolling Paris..

my dear readers..
yesterday got away from me
thank you 
for your patience..

my travelogue begins in


we flew in and we stayed very close to the 
Eiffel Tower
and the
Rue Cler..

where we had breakfast and a yummy

and then off on our way..
walking an average of 10,000 steps a day..

My friend Paula sent me here..

and stuffed from floor to ceiling..

with so many different things..
antique school cards, books and papers...

Medicine bottles and small porcelains, dolls, masks..

and tons of fabrics and ribbons..
but only sold by the yard...

unfortunately I am a claustrophobe 
and with 7 other people in the shop...
I had to make my purchases and get out quickly..

I would have loved to peruse it on my own time!!
I could have spent the day in there...

Next on my list was 

a manufacturer of paints.. 
this had long been on my list.. 
and I was wanting a tiny travel paint set...

It was so charming and nostalgic, I felt as though
Monet could walk in in any moment..
the smocks were so evocative of times gone past..

I ended up purchasing
a small travel paint box and got to choose my colors..
which was one reason I wanted the box, to have my personalized set..

If you go, make sure to ask..

we ended up strolling
together and I took some shots for you of the beauty of 

Notre Dame

and the 

and as you can see the weather was moody
and chilly...

but the 
was still beautiful...

even though so many flowers were spent..
and the cold north wind did blow..

You know me, I can find beauty..
wherever we go..

and if you go,
I know you will find it too...
no matter the season..

See you on Friday
with a new video..

I will be finishing and flipping through my travel journal..

Welcome home.What a wonderful shop I wish I'd found that one it looks just my thing. I did find a vintage lace shop in Dinan which was lovely. Looking forward to seeing Tuesday's posts. I have missed getting inspiration from your site. ❤️

Thanks again for sharing your journey, my dear claustrophobic friend (yet another reason!) ;)

What beautiful photos of Paris. Those shops look like they would be somewhere I could stay for hours, but like you, I get claustrophobic, too. I am still disappointed with the new part of the Louvre, though. I really loved seeing Paris through your eyes, though.
