Paris window chaise,watercolor, 5.5" x 7.5"
Another Paris night walk since you enjoyed yesterdays post so much adn I am still busy now with the Jack Russells... There's nothing like strolling around Paris at night... You have all the windows to yourself... And you can redecorate entirely to your heart's content - like this inviting chair in a rare bookshop window.. Oh those trecherous, unending circular staircases in Paris! I'll take a mini model instead S.V.P. Bouquets of everlasting coral - perfection! Parisien children's shops at night are full of stories - a sad child neglected by teddy parents...dommage A little snack for your night time journey..? A few cerises peut-etre? Crunch...crunch At last! Bisquits...quelle dommage - made of porcelaine=no calories! My walk from the Right bank over to the Left bank. Que Voltaire is particularly good for enticing antique boutiques for the vicarious shopper.


  1. The "bisguits" shot is very creative....sometimes shooting around those iron gates can be frustrating! Great shots as usual.

  2. I feel a strange longing for France right now. Beautiful photos!

  3. Love the wing-back chair--some people think they're not comfortable, but I like that you can rest your head against the side part there and take a little nap! Pretty chair painting,Carol.

  4. so enjoyed the walk...and those chairs...wouldn't mind a couple for my personal space :)

    If I had one of those lovely pink chairs in the first picture I would be SUCH a happy girl.

  6. I love walking around cities at night (although I tend to do it in New York much more often than in Paris!). I agree, it feels like everything is yours, plus I like the voyeuristic past time of looking in people's apartments!

  7. That wing chair's owner must do a lot of reading: the original leather cushion has been replaced by a velvety one! ;-)

    Good night, Paris moon,
    I'll wish you a china macaron dreams!

    I'm contacting you because I've discover your blog on whith who I'm already in partnership.

    I've been working for 10 years in a company that create websites for hotels in Paris. During this years, we've seen that most of the times, hotels put lower rates on their own sites than on other major hotels reservation system (such as Expedia for example). This is due to the fact that hotels do not pay any commitions when a booking is made on their own site (on the major hotels reservation system, the commissions get sometime get up to 30%). So they can offer a better prices to their customers.

    Based on this, we've created a directory of hotels in Paris that link to all our hotels sites, so net surfers won't have to loose their times searching for each one of our hotels site. It is called and you can discover it's paris page here :

    My site is offering a new way to search hotels in Paris, with most of the time a better rates, so it can be very intersting for your net surfers.
    And as I you're blog is concerning Paris and I'm sure you have foreigner visiting it, I was wondering how could we also become partners ?

    What would you want in exchange to write an article on my site or putting a visible link on your blog ?

    Best regards

Love hearing from you
