Happy Shopping!

The Soldes (sales) have begun in France.
Everyone is out in full force shopping for
les vacances (the vacation)!

France has two official sales during the year.
The end of June and the first of the year.

Repetto, the famous ballet shoe maker, always uses a
delightful mountain of ballet slippers in their windows.  

Happy shopping!

Beauty in the Little Things

Look what I found on my walk home today

This stunning rose vignette lit up the building

 It was perfect

Once again, it was the beauty in the little things.

I realise more and more about those 'little things' now that I'm (uh hum) getting older...
perhaps I'm getting a bit wiser too... well, I can hope anyway!

Hmmm, thinking finding the 'Beauty in the Little Things' would be a
good series to start here on the blog.

What do you think?

Everything is Blooming

Time in the garden is just the thing for
rest and relaxation

Why do I always think of Elmer Fudd saying that with his cute lisp?  :))
 Do you remember that too?

We had a rainy Spring and I was beginning to wonder if the sun would ever come out.
Good news!  The sun returned and everything is blooming.

Happy Lundi!

Paris Apartments for Rent

Paris is a dream destination for many.

All the iconic symbols,

Fun bouquinistas along the Seine

Chippy buildings with great lines,

For me, the small things make it unlike any city in the world.

I'm often asked the best place to stay while in Paris.
One of the best ways to enjoy your time in Paris is a stay in an apartment. I recommend to you high quality Paris apartments to make your trip to the City of Lights special.

This website is a sponsor of Bonjour Romance and offers a great selection of
apartments at affordable prices.

à bientôt!
