Dreaming of Paris...


Image via Such Pretty Things ~ Flickr ~ The Fleas

Bonjour Mes Amis! I was just enjoying a cup of tea and dreaming of Paris! My friend Julio from Beaux Mondes Designs is there now and he took his toddler son with them. His posts are just lovely and are making me miss Paris dreadfully! I can't wait to take my Baby J there :)

From the Fleas, the shops. to the storefronts, these images are causing a little pang in my heart.

A favorite thing of mine to do was to visit the Marché aux Fleurs and Marché aux oiseaux. Just strolling around and seeing all of the sites and smelling the flowers (not the birds) is a perfect little break in the city.
I could never get over the flower stalls piled  high with beautiful fragrant blooms. Like walls of blossoms on each side. It's truly beautiful. I always had fresh flowers in the apartment.

The best bookstores in the world I do believeare in Paris! They are amazing. What I wouldn't do to be there now.

I love this image of the Bouquiniste along the Seine. It brings back so many wonderful memories of Paris! Leisurely breaks reading along the Siene and views of the Conciergerie. Life doesn't get much better than that! What a wonderful stroll down memory lane for me tonight. I'm off to bed with visions of Laduree and Les Printemps dancing in my head.
Bonne Nuit!

I took a fabulous trip to Hollywood with some friends and I can't wait to post about the fantastic Golden Age of Hollywood sites I saw...Until then!

  1. On mon Dieu.....Judith, you always have the most gorgeous photos. How I love Paris as well, and it is true; there is something special about that place and one must just wander there, not be in a hurry, and have the time (and money) to just go about and LOOK at everything. I was in Paris only 8 days and it wasn't enough! Sweet dreams mon amie! Anita

  2. I am off to Paris to morrow and as you I am a little nostalgic for my old days in Paris...now, it is airport-work-work related dinner-sleep...however, after dinner I always walk to Isle Saint Louis, I just love that part of Paris, Saint Germain, along the Seine...and the bookstores are open until midnight..

  13. Bonjour my dearest Judith:

    Thank you for the kind mention. We are having so much fun. As you know, there isn't enough time to do everything in Paris. Your picture of the fabulous bird makes me want to fit in one more excursion to our lengthy list. Our stay in 7th is showing us a new face to our favorite city. A special thanks to you for introducing me to Claudia's blog who in turn referred me to Paris Perfect which has given my family the VIP treatment. It has been a 5 star experience. I cannot wait for our boys to meet. I know they will have a kinship based on their parents love for the same things.

    xoxo
    Julio

  20. Dearest Judith~

    I am right there beside you baby all the way! My heart hurts sometimes like missing a loved one. I am there everyday.... because I have learned how to be, being here and not there. Someday we will sit down together over tea and I will show you.

    Always~

  23. Great photos.Bought several dozen roses today (thank you Costco)...and, stripped of the cellophane and filler stock, I can imagine they are sitting in a galvanized pot in front of a French flower stall. Trish

  37. obviously like your website however you need to test the spelling on quite a few of your posts.
    Several of them are rife with spelling problems
    and I find it very bothersome to tell the truth nevertheless I will
    certainly come back again.

  38. Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason appeared to be on the internet the simplest thing to be aware of.

    I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that they just do not
    know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well
    as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
