    So many beautiful and delightful things you shared today: Dior (timeless); Japanese women’s ceramics; houndstooth chairs; food as art; beautiful china and glassware. A feast for our eyes. Thank you!

    I can’t help but chuckle at the dishes. Their chicken entree certainly the antithesis of southern chicken entrees. C’est la vie en Paree!!! Loved the chair varieties at lunch, especially the houndstooth. Did I see one table was stools?? What a gastronomical day!!

    Love the black and white chairs and the blue toile on the chairs and the giraffes! So pretty!

    Thanks for posting all the flower pictures. They are lovely!
    Lots of nice museum pieces. I like all the ceramics.
    The blue toile caught my eye on the chairs and on the giraffes! Beautiful!

    Having trouble getting my comment to post.
    This is my third try.
    Thank you for all the lovely flower pictures.
    This was a nice exhibit and I especially loved the ceramics. These old pieces are beautiful.
    Another thing that caught my eye was the blue toile on the chairs and even on the giraffes in the display.
    We are still having high temps here.

    I am enjoying your photos of new and different museums, stores and restaurants. The food photos are exquisite! The serving sizes allow a chance to taste a small amount of many items. That and walking everywhere keeps everyone fit and trim. You provided such a variety today I truly enjoyed it all!

    I greatly enjoyed your gastronomic photos! That is our kind of meal, small and exquisite! Loved the ceramicist photos also and the flowers! You outdid yourself today! Looking forward to seeing your new apartment.

    Don’t Pierre and Laurie look just great? It looks like Bernie and Pierre were texting each other as a way to communicate. 🙂
    I scroll past the pictures of flowers, food, chairs, dresses, and plates, especially plates of food, but I do like seeing you and Bernie and Pierre and Laurie. You guys look terrific! I’m glad you are finding a way to beat the heat. You can always spring for a cheap hotel room……like in Abesses! for a day to beat the heat. I hereby offer $100 toward an air-conditioned hotel room when needed. Oh, by the way, the TENS machine is a godsend for my achy bionic knee. I figure I’ll just buy it off you and keep it. Or get you a new one, your choice.
    A plus tard sos

      Ha, probably no texting going on as neither is that proficient with their phones! Thanks for the offer towards a cheap hotel room but we’ll survive and hopefully it will cool off. I’m SO GLAD the machine is helping you. Just keep it as I have never used it, even once. I thought I would need it with my back but didn’t. It’s just been sitting on a bedside table in my bedroom for over a year! And I know you don’t like all the photos, but just remember that others on the blog love them!!!

    The floral arrangements from that flower store were beautiful- I would have been tempted to buy each!! What did you think of Dior? Did it meet or exceed your expectations? How so regardless? The purses were fun and colorful- any idea on cost? Is the store completely new or renovated? Loved the floors! As for dinner…cherry pie was bigger than the invisible “main course” – that’s my kind of eating LOL!!

      The Dior store was a renovation. It’s been at that location for may years. The flowers were actually inside Le Bob Marche in their huge food store. Laurie had never been there.
