You didn’t really think I was finished telling you about Paris…no chance. You asked for pictures …here they come! Be sure to click on the pictures to get a bigger view.
Paris is more then just fabric shopping…it is filled with all kinds of famous sites ( some I wonder why and others I know why.)
The most famous being the Eiffel Tower …I don’t know what the big deal is..I could hold it in my hand…
The tower is huge (324 meters)…it is brownish and ugly (just my opinion) It needs some color! …a few quilts hanging from it…then I would find is pretty! Wouldn’t that be a cool exhibition…the Eiffel Tower covered in quilts!!
I found it prettiest at night…what do you think? Also it was much more romantic to “kiss” under it at night with the lights twinkling then during the day when the birds were pooping on our heads.
The Arc de Triomphe is another “must” see site (that's what all the books tell you)
The Arc de Triomphe is the end (or beginning, depends on where you stand) of the famous shopping street Champs-Élysées
After crossing the River Seine
You will come to Notre Dame …
I don't know what is prettier the inside ....or the outside....
mustn't forget the back.
One of the fun places to visit was the Place de Tertre.
It is filled with artists of all sorts trying to sell you their pictures. We did end up buy a small one…what would a trip to Paris be without an overpriced painting ??
Check out those stairs! I was glad we were going down not up!
WOW, this is turning into a long post but before I stop for today I have to show you my favorite place. The Louvre !
It was amazing! It was HUGE! It was better then I expected! If you ever make it to Paris, you just have to go to the Louvre, even if it is only for a few hours ( you would need a week to see the whole thing) it will take your breath away.
Here are a few favorites of mine….the sculptures were HUGE and beautiful…
Do you think this would fit in our garden ??
....or this one ??
The tapestries were beautiful!
How about some crystal for our table..
A few trinket boxes for my beads…
…or a crown for this Queen!
This was super small…it would fit in the palm of my hand, the Kings must of been smaller then.
Now a random showing of some I liked….
I would also have sweet dreams if an Angel visited me at night !
Look at the size of these.
This is what I call a RED room!
These are bigger then our house!!
A wise person told me not to forget to look up ! Thanks Sis!
No visit of the Louvre would be complete without seeing “the Lady”…Mona Lisa!
Personally I was a bit disappointed…you had to stand 10 meters away, there were thousand of people crowded around and the picture is small! (77 cm x 53cm or 30 x21 inches) There were a lot of other pictures I enjoyed more but here she is…the Mona Lisa !
For the Dan Brown fans……the Holy Grail should be here ?? WOW, this has to be the longest post in Blogging history but I couldn't stop adding pictures. I hope you have enjoyed some of the sites…I have way more but that's enough for today…Max wants to go out and I have to be feed.
P.S. It took me 3 coffees to write this…how many did you need to read it ??
