Window Shopping

I thought you may enjoy a few Parisian window scenes.
Once again I must apologize for the reflection.




The cascades of blooms are paper flowers. 
I thought of the talented Noel at Fanciful Designs,  who creates beautiful paper creations.

Lovely photos, the flowers look great but what I really like are the clothes. I just love a structured blazer over a dress... Love from London x

Mimi: Wonderful photos. I actually think the reflections are fantastic. They bring the scene to life for me and I've enjoyed the passersby and passings by. Two things I'd like to do--make a purchase and stop for a pleasant luncheon with you.

Paris has the best windows! Love it! I used to do this for work so I really appreciate the hard work that goes into creating a display like that! xo

Those are fabulous! One doesn't often see the same level of imagination and effort in window designs here.

Hello Mimi,
It's like a "Paris promenade" so charme and chic.I always go to REPETTO when I visite Paris... one of my favorite windows,
Have a nice new week,

Jenny said...

Two lovely views in one! Don't have to apologize because whilst we see the artistry of the displays we can glimpse the Paris surrounding it. THank you.

Darling, those are the same paper flowers Macy's had in their windows for The Spring Flower Show they do each year. I'll send you the name of the woman tomorrow. They are absolutely beautiful, works or art themselves. Noel's, I think, are more beautiful though. No one cares about the reflections, it's Paris!!
sending love...

Hi Mimi, these are fabulous shots and just as lovely is what's reflected in the windows, Paree! Thanks for the bit of eye candy, I needed a little dose of the city :)

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

Mimi, I bet the floral window was breathtaking in person. You find the most fabulous things to blog about in that magical city!
I would love to learn how to make some of those magnificent flowers. Wouldn't they look beautiful on top of a gift box? So pretty!

Cathy said...

It's so much fun to go window shopping in Paris. And I don't mind the reflections at all. In fact I like them.

Dumbwit Tellher said...

So very magnificent. The blossoms are incredibly beautiful. I hope you had the most perfect of weekends Mimi.

Decor To Adore said...

Wouldn't an entire wall of flowers in a bedroom or bathroom be just lovely?

Thank you so very much for your kind words and support.
May your open door only reveal beautiful things.

Fabulous Finds Gal said...

Unbelievable!! Yes, I hope Noel gets a ton of orders like that one must have been. Just breathtaking.

Love and light,
