Our Paris Apartment.


  
 
  
   
 
 


 
 

 
 



During our visit to Paris last summer, we rented an apartment. It was quirky and charming and full of that gorgeous, acclaimed Parisian light. A very special little place on the fourth floor of an old beautiful building. An elevator with just enough room for the three of us. A mouthwatering boulangerie just around the corner (which meant fresh pastries every morning). Rooftop views, old wood floors with creaks and squeaks. Two bedrooms and a patio. The tiniest kitchen with saloon doors. A small but functional bathroom and a washing machine. A block away from the Metro station. We even overheard through the walls a couple arguing...the man was asking her (in a loud voice) "Pourquoi pourquoi?!" over and over again. We still imitate it with good humor around the house here a year later...Who could ask for more?

Thank you for visiting, and thank you for being you...xoxo

D, hello! I've been so MIA in blogland for a while and what d'ya know, I visit you and stroll through your lovely Parisian pictures on the very day that I drew my first Eiffel tower! Been immersing myself in Paris all day (Amelie music, etc) and now here we are, a lovely way to end a perfectly Parisian day, with you! The images are lovely, what a wonderful trip...so glad you shared.

Sweetest J ~ Hello! It's so wonderful to see you here. Lovely is one of my favorite words so twice is twice as nice :).

How great is it that you are thinking of Paris when I am thinking of Paris? Yay us! Amelie is one of my most favorite films. It inspires me every time I watch it.

Did you post your work on 24 Corners? I must go look and see...

Love,
D

D...the Eiffel tower I created was for an art camp that I put on this week, it just ended...and it was such a crazy whirlwind that I wasn't able to take even a single picture of the kids amazing creations...so bummed, they were beautiful. I'm going to call a few parents and see if they'll email pictures of them to me, hope so. I'll be posting mine soon, and actually have one more camp to go so will try my best to take pictures then. I need an assistant!
BTW...we listened to the Amelie soundtrack while working on the Eiffel...the kids loved it, we all felt very French!
