View from Our Window

 We are fortunate the rain has let up and Paris is sparkling. The temperature is mild for July- perfect for walking through the city!  We always rent apartments so we can have space to move around and fix our supper if we are too tired from shopping all day to go out and have a petite déjeuner in the morning.  This time the apartment over looks Pont Marie on the Ile St Louis.  The metro stop is right across the bridge to connect us to all points in the city.  Tomorrow we will go to the old fabric area and hunt through the floors of wonderful fabrics and trims- heaven, oui?!

On a Street Corner in Paris

 As we get ready for our trip to Paris next week we are working out our schedule of not to miss places.  Of course we will drag ourselves out of bed early to hit this flea market, our favorite our first morning.  Other things on the list this year is a stop at BHV and their wonderful cabinet hardware for a job we're working on now.  We've secured our tickets to a concert in the breathtaking Sainte Chapelle Chapel.  Dinner is reserved in Eiffel 58 for a special evening.  We even asked the US Embassy if they had anything planned for the 4th of July but alas they diu not.
What is on your must see/do list for Paris?

Can You Imagine??

We can just imagine all the ladies dressed in the rustling gown twirling to the music with their handsome escorts on their arm in their dashing tuxedos.  This is the ballroom ceiling in the Paris Opera House.  One of our not to miss sights in our Paris Tours.  It might be possible to catch an opera too if we're lucky.
