i’ve been saving my pics using the google search now so it’s easy to keep track, maybe even easier than pinterest albeit not nearly as much fun

in any case i’m going to stick with the shopping theme considering i have to catch a plane in less than an hour.

    Thank you for another heartfelt post and these wonderful shopping scenes… how I wish I could just walk into any of those old shops with their sumptuous inventories. Delightful!

    I adore these photos! Where do you find them? I think we would be good friends.
    Re Rouen, I read something that had some experts saying that anybody with a screw loose is latching onto this “cause” and twisting it to make their pathetic psychosis into some kind of statement–as one said, these people are suicidal one day and homicidal the next. It’s very sad, and so cynical of ISIS.

    These are such great photos. You have an enviable collection. It’s really true. When things get really stressful and I need a distraction, shopping always helps, even if I don’t buy a thing.
