    Hi Claudia!
    Can you sneak me into your suitcase??? I’m tiny and wouldn’t take up too much room. :) Seriously, I would love to go to Paris in the Autumn and see all the antiques. I have major, major envy! But, I know you’ll post some yummy pictures for all us poor bloggers whom you’ve left behind!! :)

    Lots of hugs, Bebe :)

    Sounds marvelous! They say autumn and spring seasons are the most beautiful in Paris! I have been there is the Autumn and I can say I had an amazing time and it was spectacular! Have a wonderful time and if by any chance I can get on a plane, sister I will meet up with you and your group! Have FUN!

    Claudia, I hope you have a wonderful time on your trip this fall. I went last year in November and it was fantastic. It was my first time there…I wish I could go again…maybe next year.


  16. theparisapartment replied:

    i may get a 3 or 4 bedroom for anyone who wants to drop by, they can get one of the rooms. it may be easier then trying to find all different places for us. what do you think?

    I love the drawing that opens your post, and am saving a copy for my scrapbook.
    Also, the Art Deco post is brilliant!
