    Linda, you and Bernie are making the best of a challenging weather period. Hopefully the weather pattern will shift. Back home it’s rainy, cloudy and about to be humid. Oh well, summer in the South🥵

    I’m with you about the fashion– too baggy and unkempt looking. (It’s so funny that I care, since I live in jeans and baggy shirts.) Marlyn enjoyed the light fixtures. Fun artwork, especially the complex quilling. Stay warm! Have fun!

    I would really enjoy that shop. The curled paper cards are pretty enough to frame. Roses and thistles-👏🏻. Our Nick has graduated- off to Bama next month. Having an absolutely delightful time with the entire family. All together for Mothers Day tomorrow will be a first- truly blessed!

    Oh I hope it warms up in two weeks!! I am not into the fashion either…I feel like the frumpy and dorky 90’s are what’s in and I was glad that had left, ha! Can’t wait to snag some goodies at Miss Manon soon! I see the price of placemats has doubled- one of my fav things to buy bc they’re useful and easy to travel back with. For reference, how much were those cute cards? Here they would be $7-8 I assume. Your old door…love it. The “details of Paris” is a big part of what I love about being there!!

      The cards are probably 10 or 12 euros! But they are gorgeous. We can go to that shop when you’re here. Today has been sunny and much warmer, probably 70. Still cool in the shade

    Linda, I love the bookstore photos and descriptions. I believe I could spend the day there. It looks wonderful. Thank you! Stay warm and dry.

      Yes, you could probably spend if not the entire day, at least one full afternoon there. So much to see and many books upstairs.

    I agree with you about the clothes, Linda. They look drab and downright boring especially coming from Paris! You’ll probably find a cute stylish dress in a small boutique soon that fits your type and taste.
    Sending you Happy Mother’s Day wishes and fingers crossed for improved weather. ….soon!

    Rain or cold IT is still PARIS💓. Gallery Lafayette might be better for fashion! Still your photos do show the attention to detail and style evident in Paris if you take a moment to look! I remember a dear friend’s daughter pushing me around the Louvre in a wheelchair after an injury (they have them available and small lifts so it is possible) then you would be warm and dry while enjoying the collection of lifetimes 💖.

    Delightful post, as always!
    Linda, your style of writing is so perfect for the subject matter!
    A daily treat for me.
    Happy Mother’s Day to you!

    I always love the details of you wonderings. It makes me smile. We are home this week after about 3 weeks overseas and some of the desserts are bringing forward delicious memories. Hope it warms up!
