Anita at Castles, Crowns and Cottages is having a party. She's not only tres chic but a hostess extraordinaire. You'll love her parties....they are enchanting and imaginative. You won't want to miss this one, so go on over today and see who's invited and what fun you'll have with just a click or two. We're all going to Paris. And here's Anita's adorable button:
Isn't she talented? Such a happy drawing!
What could I possibly contribute that would be interesting to all of you AND Anita's stellar list of guests? Photos taken on our last trip to Paris, of course. Brought to you by four of us who think Paris is irresistible: daughter Tracy, son David, granddaughter Kensy and me. (Kensy's parents were not with us.)

Our funky hotel on the West Bank
Sacre Coeur: Ooo la la....those stairs!
Arc de Triomphe
So irresistible: Tuileries
Now where else would we lunch, my dears?
Musée du Louvre
Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris
The Obelisk at Place de la Concorde
Hope you had almost as much fun as we did!
Paris IS irresistible.....au revoir!

A lovely drawing! Your grandaughter is beautiful. Great to see that you had a great time in Paris.ReplyDelete
Great tribute to Paris's high spots. I'm loving Anita's party so much. xx'sReplyDelete
It is irresistible indeed!ReplyDelete
Merci!!!!! I feel as if I've been to Paris during my morning coffee. Wonderful, wonderful photos! I'm going to have another look later. And, of course, I'm going to the party.ReplyDelete
I was happy to see your photos as a lot of the places you had visited so did we, arriving at the Gare du Nord, visiting the wonderful Arc de Triomphe and Sacre Coeur.
Such amazing places and Paris is such a beautiful City. Kensy is beautiful and I am sure you had a fabulous time.
Merci beaucoup, for sharing your photos and I hope that you have a great weekend
I was 18 the last time I was in Paris. I think it is time for a change.ReplyDelete
So sweet! It looks like she had a fabulous time - as she should!ReplyDelete
OH THIS IS SO DARN FUN....dearest Barbara, THANK YOU, mERCI MILLE FOIS for such a lovely tribute to our City of Lights and for your kind and gentle words about my art; I am a latent artist. I never studied art as I was encouraged to do so as a child, but you know, there is a reason for everything. Maybe I still draw as I did when I was young because I am meant to bring out the child in others. And today, let us be children again and trust in the fragile but yet powerful force of the human spirit and that there IS good in us all....blessings to you dear one, these are fabulous memories. Just what I wanted everyone to do..pull out those ideas!!! AnitaReplyDelete
I love Paris, you just remind me of my last Paris trip together with my hubby. We went almost all places you mentioned except few, I must plan another visit soon. Have a lovely weekend.ReplyDelete

What a delightful way to start the day = a trip to Paris. I love how you've put the pictures together in collage form. Tres chic. I'm watching the French Open and it's nice between matches to have a look at your pretty pictures. I feel like I'm there.ReplyDelete
Your granddaughter looks so Parisian in her trench coat. What a treat for a young girl to visit Paris.
A bientot mon ami. Have a nice Memorial day weekend.
I was last in Paris in July 2004 for a special "zero" birthday--and had one of the most memorable meals ever at a small restaurant overlooking the Seine, Notre Dame in view.
No matter what time of year, Paris possesses a magic all its own. Thanks for triggering those irresistible memories!
It looks magical!ReplyDelete
