it will never the same

hi guys, greetings from gay paree! it’s chilly and dreary but that didn’t stop us from trudging a good many hours yesterday. no matter how many times i visit paris it’s always a brand new experience.

these first two shots were taken by my sis in law. thanks, jean!

our apartment has everything  a couple of gals could want but the link isn’t working and we’re about to head out.

so i’ll leave you with a couple shots of the view. it’s kind of surreal and the first time i’ve had the tour right outside the window. we’ve been taking pics to try to capture it and i’m not sure we did but this will have to suffice for le moment. we’ve got to get to those croissants!  more soon!

PS we’re having another giveaway! this time it’s a beautiful handmade piece from leslie andrews who created tarnished lace. she made this beautiful necklace just for us. it’s full of gems, pearls and an antique key. if you’d like to win it, please go to her facebook page and ‘like’it. then leave a comment below and it could be yours! bon chance!

    Greetings Claudia from just a couple hours away in bonny Scotland. In fact, I’ll be in Paris on Wed. but only get the opportunity to stand in the darn airport! Your photos are gorgeous, despite the dreary skies. I suspect you can’t get a few Paris loving shoppers down!! Happy Thanksgiving to you a bit early. I’m glad you are in the city you adore. x

    With all the comments about the weather in the fall, I just couldn’t resist: “I love Paris in the springtime (do-doot-do-doo!) I love Paris in the fall (do-do-doo-doot-do-do…” ;-)

    Wow, you are one busy lady! I came on last night and back this morning to go through more of your wonderful posts and check out all of the gorgeousness! Hope you are having a beautiful weekend. Believe it or not it just started raining in LA and is feeling very “fall.”

    Blessings and light to you!

    Every Sunday morning I settle in with my breakfast and look at all my Paris blogs I have bookmarked, my heart is always there even if my body is not. But thanks to your lovely blog I can get my fix! The pictures are lovely, we always stay in Apartments when we visit Paris, they are so much fun and always make me feel a little more Parisienne!
