Wonderful Paris!

We are back from Paris!

I'm still very tiered but very satisfied. It
was a wonderful adventure and we had
great fun with Sylvia.

This post will be all about our trip!
This way I hope you can enjoy little bit too.

This was the train station we arrived at with
the Thalys. Across the street was our beautiful
hotel. Our room had a real french balcony!

Sylvia checking in!

Of course I had to trie the bed!

Imagine... a whole city full of this kind of

Stained glass dome of galerie Lafayette!

In the afternoon the big moment came to
meet our Italian friends, Rosanna and Roberta.
At the stairs of the Sacre Couer enjoying this
amazing view of Paris!


It was wonderful to meet The Italian girls
The rest of the day we spent together and
we had a great time together.Rosanna
as our guide,she was almost like a native
Parisian! She could tell us anything about
this beautiful city.
Sorry, ladies but I had to show this foto!
(It was very hard to get them on a foto,only when
I promised that it was for own use they wanted
to pose...?)

Montmartre....such inspiration!

Then we went to see the petit store of,
Léa Frisoni....

Windows with delicious yummie cakes,were
no exception in Paris..

We also had a visit at the "Passage Jouffroy"
and "Passage des Panoramas"
This picture is taken in front of the window
of the store Pain D'epices. They sell toys and
dollhouse minies.

After all the shoping, it was time to meet the
Norwegian friends, Synove and Christel.
Christel came with her family...her two beautiful
daughters and husband. Synnoves came with her
boy friend.
We had such a great time...still can't beleive it all
really happened.

Restaurant L'arbre a cannelle.
Look at the sealing of the restaurant...it was
the most wonderful decor for this accasion.

There were some gifts too...!!!!!
This is from Rosanna... fantastic wall paper,
a beautiful tray and a master piece of stitch
work...like a dream!

Beautiful treasures...
(bench from Sylvia and bear from Margriet)

And there was more from Roberta too!
In this beautiful box with pink ribbon there
was a tableau with a scene making a pie...
it is so perfectly made and looking very real.
I love minie food, so she could not make me
The Ladurée bag was also a gift for me,
she gave me at the SIMP.

Ladurée at avenue Champs Elysees....heaven!
There's a long story down to our trip to Ladurée,
but when it is a bit sensitive to some people I do
not go into there (;LOL)
We went into the store but unfortunately it was
not allowed to make pictures. I also did not buy
anything, the row was to long and we simply had
not enough time.

I did manage to grab a card...the macarons
did not came from Ladurée, but I bought
them at the last minute at Mc Donalds,just
before we had to leave home!

( sorry girls)
At the SIMP with Rosanna and Roberta.

Together with Christel.

Christel did not sent us home empty-handed
eather! Such a wonderful treat, from such a
great artist!

Of course I had some shopping of my own....

Look at these fantastic tiles, they are made by

At my wish list there was a pair of scissors
that could really cut and perfectly fit in the
sewing box I recently got from my friend
Well I have found it at:
I already knew these ladies because
I already had purchased some minies from them
at the show in Arnhem.
They have fantastic minies, and I can tell you that
my wishlist is only grown.

I also bought a cheese knife,mixer and realy
tiny needles.

And then it was time to go home......
Thank you dear friends for the beautiful time
and memories I will treasure for ever!!!!
