The colors and style of Paris

           Bonjour!!!    Danni went to Europe recently to visit her son at college in Rome. One of her daughters went along for the trip too. Of course they had to visit Paris, Florence and Venice on the way there. We thought we would share some photos starting with Paris. Not the usual tourist photos, except for one of the Eiffel Tower and the Seine just to get your bearings.

One of  the many beautiful bridges over the Seine.

These colorful teapots were in Danni's favorite teashop Marriage Freres. They have several shops in Paris and in our humble opinion, have the best tea in the world.

Scarves are a necessity in Paris if you want to blend in and these made such a lovely display.

Great rug shop.

This was just one of so many amazing chocolate shop windows. Everything is sculptured or molded from chocolate. A shoe never looked or tasted so good.

Whimsical  design choice. This guy was in our hotel lobby to greet us each day.

 Would love to have this cement faux bois chair for the garden.

This chandelier is in our favorite bakery" Poilane" in St. Germaine. Can you believe it is made entirely of bread? They have to bake a new one every few years. The paintings are all of bread too.

Who doesn't love Hermes?  Especially their scarves.

We waited in line just to get a pastry at Pierre Herme. It was worth it!

We had to giggle watching this little dog chasing the ubiquitous Paris pigeons to no avail.

We thought we would leave you with this longeriere shop window. Those are legs in different styles of  hosiery under the umbrellas.  Paris really does have the most creative and entertaining shop windows. Next on the trip was Florence. We will be posting photos from there soon.    Au Revoir!!!

We are now participating with 2 blog parties. Check them out, its kinda fun!
