Eve said...

What gorgeos pics you´ve made ! Thank you so much for sharing your tour with us, it is almost like a littel vacation for me to walk with you through Paris. I have posted today some pics of a little village here in Bavaria, Germany if you would like to watch, but without translation, sorry.

Wish you a wonderful weekend and I´m looking forward to more views of your hometown.
Kindest regards,

Dear Mimi,
What beautiful pictures! They remind me so much of my husband's and my trip to your lovely city! Can you be homesick for a place that isn't your home? I think you can because you have made us homesick for Paris tonight! Thank you!!

Sarah Elizabeth said...

Before I moved to Italy I almost took a job in Paris. I don't regret my choice at all because I met my fiancee here and now I'm really happy. However, part of me still dreams about living a Parisian life. Thank you for sharing your Paris xx

That was ever so nice of you to show me around Paris, my first trip was with Jermaine, so I love to see it again and again, always ready when you are.
Have a wonderful romantic weekend in Paris.

Haute World said...

Beautiful images! Were the Hermes bags taken at Dider Ludot? I had no idea you were an expat living in Paris... so am I, although I'm hoping to get more local by the minute ;-) So sweet you moved across the pond to be with your love!

English Rose ♥ said...

So jealous!

That macaroon looked yum - can't wait to live in Paris even more after seeing this =]

Stay safe and chic darling,

Thanks for whisking me away to Paris for a few minutes.


Jenny said...

What a perfect post card. Thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting. I have just added a link to your site and your giveaway. Beware the deluge of visitors that will come (kidding, indeed). Hee hee. But I have a desparate request, do you have a photo tour of a visit to Lauduree? I have glimpsed its outer doors and yet never had the chance to drink in the interiors nor their tea. I can only hope to make it on another visit to fair Paris....Lord willing.

Catherine said...

i like the thé gourmand! Hermès bags!
have a nice evening.catherine

debra@dustjacket said...

Oh I could look at your snaps all day...I'm ever so envious...hope that is not bad! How I would love to share afternoon tea with you there....

Bonjour, Thank you so much for calling in and leaving me such a wonderful comment.

I love Paris, last year I went over twice. The first time was in April to meet my wonderful blogging friends from there and a lovely couple ..from Sydney. The second time was to look after a friends apartment and her cats. Unfortunately she and husband have left today , to go back to the States :-(

I have all my Parisien stories on the blog, along with links for my friends.

Our friend Aimee has a lovely teashop in Buttes aux Cailles..1, rue Jean-Marie-Jego called L'Oisive Thé. It is brilliant and she has knitting classes there too.

Will call in again soon take care.

Elizabeth Mahlou said...

France is one of the few places I have not visited whose language I speak. Thanks for sharing Paris! The closest I ever got was transferring airlines at Charles de Gaulle airport. Your pictures convince me that Paris is for certain worth a visit.

Chronicles of Dolliedaydream said...

Mimi thank you for sharing your world, Paris is one of my favorite cities to stroll around. I spent 6months living/ working as part of my University course a looooong time ago now, but always love to go back to visit.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Auntie Cake said...

Thanks for giving us the tour! I love it when you share your pictures with us, so beautiful! I really need to live somewhere with a marketplace within walking distance...

M said...

Love your blog! Very nicely presented, great choice of topics, GREAT visuals.
Kudos! Looking forward to more.
All the best,

Tish Jett said...

I know I keep saying this, but it's true: I love to see Paris through your eyes.

Just keep telling us more about your world. I'm trying to decide whether I should participate in your love story tell-all. Hmmm, what do you think?


Rita said...

My dear Mimi,
thank you for sharing those gorgeous pics of dear old Paris. They are emanating charm and beauty and you are making me want to come over. Never been to Paris though it is not so far from here. A former Parisian co-worker of mine has invited some of us over to visit him. Who knows, I could change my list of touring priorities (Crakow is actually the fist in my list right now) and fly over to put some "genuinely" French ooh la la in my life and let the quintessence of charm, beauty and romance embrace and inebriate me.

Unknown said...

Hi honey!
I didn't get your email so would you mind emailing me again -
Thanks so much, have a great week!
Simone :)

Mademoiselle ♥♥ said...

These pictures are so gorgeous! I really love the afternoon pick me up, I could have done with one of those this afternoon!

Obee Designs said...

Bonjour Mimi!
As always, you are always too sweet when you come by to visit me. I always look for your comments:)
Isn't that lidded tea cup just marvelous? Who knows, maybe Marie Antoinette once drank her tea from it while she ate her cake. It's always fun to make up stories like that and fantasize. If it was my teacup I would think of that every time I used it!!
Have a wonderful day and keep those amazing pictures of Paris and France coming!

My Grama's Soul said...

Beautiful pics in your post.

When I was in Paris a few years ago, I purchased a beautiful red bag. It is so beautiful, I don't want to use it. But after looking at your post, I'm going to put my Paris hat on and strut my stuff!!



Tarja Mustonen-Blomquist said...

Mimi, Oh how you have my heart aching for Paris..I miss it there so much. I just loved your photo postcards of your lovely city. I wish I could stop by a cafe and meet you for a cup of coffee and a pastry.
ps, I did not paint the mural, 16 years ago I wasn't painting very much and wasn't ready for a project like I could tackle it so maybe someday...but thank you for your kind words and comments on my blog, they mean a lot to me :)
