Chairs, Colors, Churches, & Chateaus

Arriving in Paris, we took a walk to acclimate.
I love chairs and this setting was sitting outside a lingerie shop.
Oh, the colors from a pastry shop window.
Sunset over the Seine River.

And churches galore. This is the Notre Dame.

As I sit at my desk this morning, still slightly jet lagged and sipping a premium Yunnan tea from the Mariage Freres; I am overwhelmed with the beauty of my first peeks of the 1500 pictures that came home with me. The letter "C" described in the words above is prevalent in describing our trip. Their were indeed chairs, colors, churches, chateaus, and even caves, candy, and cats. It is difficult to know where to begin to share with you. You were all in my thoughts as I traveled along, snapping pictures; so I hope you enjoy for the next few weeks travels in France and a touch of Barcelona.

For the tea lovers here, I did bring home several lovely teas. The one this morning is called Aigilles D'Or, translated Needles of Gold. Isn't that a lovely name?

Good morning, Marilyn. No more linens on Monday but I can't complain. We will have days and days of France to enjoy. Welcome back.

Welcome home. I can see that I'll really enjoy seeing your wonderful photos. Your great shots of the tea table for two with the gorgeous flowers, the pastries, the river and the magnificent cathedral - what a start. I can't wait to see more.

Yes, walking is the only way to soak up the beauty of of light and dreams.

I've never tried the MF teas but know they are excellent.

Enjoyed the lovely pictures and look forward to more delights of the heart :) Pon per pom

Note: whenever we want to sound French and don't know the words, that's what we'll say, pon per pom :)
