a paris weekend: dernier jour
Posted in Uncategorized August 14th, 2009 by pia


Moments enjoyed…

  • seeing the fruits of my labour (and breathing a sigh of relief at it’s completion).
  • buying a copy of The Secret Garden to send to my mum.
  • being interviewed like a star.
  • lunch at Louis Philippe (and seeing French Boy’s eyes sparkle at first bite of his boeuf bourguignon).
  • parler avec “le pere” en francais dans un petit cafe.
  • wandering the streets and finding new-to-me old quiet streets.
  • flying through the racks at Free’p’star and scoring 4 great vintage numbers for 10euro a piece (including a little french jumpsuit. If you ask nicely I might be brave and show + tell).


Oh Paris! I look forward to spending the weekend with you again sometime.  ne m’oublie pas…

    This top picture is just too much sitting here in grey London. If I get on the Eurostar I could be there in time for afternoon tea…

    I have recently come across your website for the umpteenth time and will be bookmarking it now for future reference. I am in love with your entire site from the typeface you use to your images of Paris. I lived in Paris for two years and your book would have been a perfect companion. I know of a cafe that looks very similar to the one above. Pray tell, where that photo was taken?
