It is by Fragonard, "Stolen Kiss". 

Ahhh, très romantique...

Musée Marmottan Monet

The Musée Marmottan Monet is one of my favorite museums in Paris.
It is a little off the beaten path from many of the more well known museums, 
but it should definitely not be missed. 
Located in the quiet residential area of the 16th,  the former hunting lodge is the 
perfect setting for the world renowned artwork 


The specially constructed Monet Salon is spectacular

A lovely painting by Berthe Morisot, a contemporary of Monet

A marvelous place to while away some time...

Time to Hit the Books

Time to hit the books

This overflowing bookstore is located in the Latin Quarter of Paris,
not far from the Cathedrale de Notre Dame, on rue St André des Arts.
It is literally bursting at the seams, 
making it a tight squeeze to get through the ailes... so I've learned to visit before lunch!

Belle Inspiration e-magazine went online on the 15th.
I want to thank everyone who made it such a success, 
and sent such lovely emails - I read every one! 

Here's the video sneak peek if you missed it
