Store Fronts of Paris

I really am a window shopper when I am here in Paris.
I just like to see how things are displayed. This old book store...sells old books. I think the building is beautiful.

Just to the side is this section. This would be hard to re-create in the studio....nature is the distressing agent for this piece. Paris in the winter is different. I am walking everywhere very briskly....and can't take my gloves off for more than a minute. I may break down and purchase a knit hat tomorrow.

This looks like such an enchanting little shop-did you go inside? It seems so inviting. Can't wait to see more of your travels

Missed you by a day! How can that be??? I thought of you as we bundled along les rues. Our train to Belgium was delayed because of the storms, but we got here. I have rarely been so cold :) I had on a turtle neck, a boiled wool jacket, and my long winter coat...so did everyone else! Have a wonderful week, can't wait to hear all about it. If I can find a minute I'll post my shots too....babies come first. Bonne chance! (GREAT SALES!)
