A Wild Day!

Bonjour My Friends! Comment ca va? I have just had the most wonderful day with my little Prince (who is back to his gentlemanly way, thank goodness) and my two best friends. We went to the Zoo and had too much fun for one day. So, I am posting a quick post, a random bit of info, and some pics from the desktop to remind me of my beloved Paris. Enjoy!
The first image is from Le boudoir et sa Philosophie in Paris. It is a beautiful little shop at 18, rue Charlot and I fall in love a little bit more every time I step inside for a visit. Carla Vizzi is the mastermind behind this fabulous shop. She strives to make it a place that rediscovers the Art of the 18th-century Boudoir. Carla works with craftsmen who recreate 18th century art and she also sells antiques, she looks for elements that may have been found in Marie Antoinette's boudoir. Most of you have probably heard of Carla and her site but I am loving silhouettes right now and had to use this image :)

These decals for the wall are so fun. Nice for those of us with commitment issues when it comes to decorating! A pretty pair of shoes and a stack of books...what more could a girl ask for!?!

I have no idea where this image came from but I love it. Makes me want to throw a lavish Tea party and invite all of you!

A gown from the Met. This is one of my favorites. A modern day Marie~Antoinette.

Ah, Les puces , this was one of my very favorite posts. I have many fond memories in these stalls. I am determined to go back soon. I was trying to go on the next trip with Claudia from The Paris Apartment (if you have not already been to visit her incredible site, please take a peek, you will be astounded by the beauty you will see). The Pink chair in the back haunts me!

Stunning! The dress is pretty too but I was looking at the walls and ceiling! :) I need professional help!

A forgotten corner in the halls of Versailles. Simple and enchanting.
That's all for today my friends, I should get some sleep now.
Bon nuit!
