Snapshots of Paris

Paris is amazing!  There is so much visual stimulation.  Everywhere you look there is something interesting to see.  I have gotten lost from my group several times because I stop to take pictures of things I see along the way.  I thought I would quickly share some of the things I have seen.  Sorry for the short post but we are running to the Eiffel Tower for lunch and I must depart.  I will be posting more in depth about each of these pictures and sharing more about the experiences related to them.  

Maison et Objet was incredible.  We found amazing furniture and ran into some really
interesting people whom I plan to profile.  It was a visual feast for the eyes!

We shopped the markets at Marche Paul Bert, Saint-Ouen 

We visited Chateau Vaux le Vicomte which was exquisite!

We visited Pierre Frey's fabric archives and saw beautiful fabrics from as early as the 1600's.

Our visit to Jacques Grange studio was a fun and exciting day.  This is his precious dog!

A highlight was the Architectural Digest Show house!  This was simply amazing, inspirational and breathtaking!  The sculpture above of the little boy is made of feathers!

 Walking along the streets I can't help but stop and snap photos.  Everything is so beautiful and so Paris, just as I thought it would be.  

I visited a Perfumerie with some of the group and watched while the shop keeper
 mixed the fragrances then put each person's name on the bottles.  

So far I think I have taken over 3,000 photos.  We are hitting the streets again today.  Yesterday we visited the Louve and saw Mona Lisa, did you know that the size of the painting is really small?  We also visited Musee d'Orsay. 
 Can I just squeal a minute?

It's all so fab and I will take you there in the following months with posts
 about it all.  We must go now, our reservation is at noon!  Au revoir!

Pin It!


  1. I think the pug is my favorite picture! :)
    I remember seeing the Mona Lisa for the first time. I was in high school - and thought 'all the fuss over this?' because indeed it was so much smaller than I had expected!
