We stayed in a typically Parisian apartment right in the middle of Paris. I can't help thinking that no French apartment would be complete without a grand mirror like this one.
Galeries Lafayette on the Boulevard Hasussman is, I think, a bit of a gem. From the outside you'd be forgiven for thinking it was just another department store but venture inside, stand amongst the cosmetics counters and look up...the sight is absolutely breathtaking.
Although it was built as a department store, Mr Treasure and I couldn't help thinking the interior looked rather like a theatre.
I was really taken with the lighting and decoration on the ground floor. It's so opulent.
Little Treasure loves nothing more than being able to push her pushchair about...she gets quite put out if we try to help her or guide the pushchair along!
I always think it's important to look up every now and again when wandering around Paris...there are so many fabulous bits of architecture and decoration waiting to be discovered.
Where else in the world would you find an underground station so elegantly announced?
When Little Treasure had her afternoon nap in Montmatre, Mr Treasure and I treated ourselves to a little holiday indulgence at 'La Mere de Catherine' while she slept.
Whenever we go to Paris we always love walking along the Seine. The stalls of old books and prints are always fun to browse. I bought some old copies of 'Le Petit Echo de La Mode' - full of all the fashions of the day.
...but venture upstairs and discover a series of rooms that are crammed with all sorts of books that are there to be enjoyed while you are in Shakespeare and Company (like a sort of reference library). There are also all sorts of notes pinned to the walls too that have been left there by visitors over the years.
We had a fabulous time showing Little Treasure the sights of Paris and hope to take her off exploring somewhere new again soon.
Au revoir for now!
