    What a lovely stroll through Montmartre! We’ve not ever eaten at that restaurant so will have to give it a try someday. We hope not when there is a large tour group! Your dress is very pretty! You need to model it for your next post!

    I like the orange and can picture it fading to a more mellow hue, but I am drawn to warm colors. Your dress is lovely with all the fall colors! I love all the rich textures you give us in your photos and it is, indeed, as if we were strolling with you. Thank you!

    The dress is perfect for you! And all the better because a French gentleman made it a gift. So many charming pictures today, thanks. (The orange is a lot, but better than that green!)

    Always enjoy the stroll through my favorite area. I still have the ceramic piece I bought up there in that quant shop. Such a lovely dress- and a sweet, loving gesture on Bernie’s part. Can’t wait for you to model it.

    I don’t know if these were new places or all new pictures, but a very good day at Montmartre. I looked up the Maison L Drucker and found it to be a company that makes rattan furniture. Then I looked up rattan and found out that it is climbing palms (vines). Holds up very well and is easy to maintain. I don’t know how comfortable. I wonder if I’ll remember this till lunch? Tks

    I don’t think my comment was posted, but I said that I knew what “merde” means and stepped in it last time we were there. A dog owner should have cleaned up after his four legged friend.

    So love these pictures of your beautiful day at Montmartre. We arrived in Paris last October on a Sunday, and after a morning at the Bastille market, we headed to Montmartre only to find roads blocked, lots of fencing and huge, huge crowds. It was the wine festival! Crowds were a challenge but also a fun cultural experience, we agree! Finally found a table to get wine and cheese and just people watch, as you said, a very Parisian thing.

    What a wonderful day. I love the pictures, especially the flora! Can’t wait to see your new frock on you. What a lovely gift from Bernie.

    Lovely pictures, as always! Really like the dress. And after all you have been through with the new “unpopular” neighborhood and the extremely hot weather, I would have thought for sure Bernie’s annual Paris gift this year would have been purchased at the “Merde” shop!! Ha!

      Ha! He did make a couple of purchases there but for his brothers.

    Merde! LOL I’ll have to remember that one! I adore the shot of the Eiffel Tower amid the chimney tops. I also don’t recall seeing that water filling station at Momartre. Glad you snagged some dessert at La Mere Catherine 🙂 The shop with the tiffany lights is awesome and that dress!! Do we get to see a pic with you wearing it?? Don’t forget to spend sometime on the riverbank before you go – esp on a night with lots of ambience 🙂

      We always go to Pont Marie to say good-bye. Glad you liked the dress. I will wear it in a picture before we leave. Right now I’m trying to get to feeling better.

    I recently found your blog and am enjoying visiting Paris through your words and pictures. Some day I hope to be able to see it in person.
    Thanks for something that I always look forward to reading.

      I understand that someone just had a “significant” birthday. Happy Birthday, my friend from Paris.
