Such a gift just to be in Paris.
Then there's all the fun
|Filling profiteroles with deliciousness at La Maison du Chou.|
and these little three bite treats
melted in my mouth.
|L'effet-bulles in Passage Choiseul.|
L'effet-bulles is the nicest 'concept' store
I've encountered in my travels.
Original and packed with treasures old and new
its tiny footprint holds a delight of goods.
|Great pants from a shop down the street. (I want them...)|
Some of what I'm noticing
is that my favorite things
are quite pricey wabi-sabi items
that could be replicated with a bit of
dumpster diving and some handwork.
Well, maybe that's it...
There's a bit of bravado
along with the soul.
|Welcome to Giverny.|
|KC and Suzanne.|
|With Sally, Kathleen, Kathy and Vicky.|
Visiting Giverny is so good for the soul.
Even in the last days before closing
the overgrown and often faded blossoms
share their glory and their decline in equal measure.
|Clouds in water.|
I am always renewed by sitting under the willows
watching clouds roll by across the still pond.
Another group of marvelous accomplished women
to play with in Paris.
