Paris on my mind.....



Paris is on my mind because I have two friends in Paris right now and have been receiving emails and photos on a daily basis. Admittedly, I am a little jealous. I would love to be there seeing the sights and eating wonderful food.



But, I have Paris all around me...I am a gatherer..... I gather things as I travel and fill my home with memories of my journeys.

Like the tiny Eiffel Towers and the lovely package from the Crillon.....


My Murano chandelier purchased at the Marche Puces (flea market) that I held through three flights to keep it safe....

The rootstock cork screw that makes me smile whenever I look at it....



Even the "kitschy" things , like the reproduction clocks I bought in a tourist shop...


Paris is all around me...in the sepia engravings I purchased at the Louvre...


and even the small sugar collection in my kitchen! I will board a flight ...in time...to go back, but for now, I am content to stay home and enjoy my part of Paris.

I have never been to Paris but judging from the pictures here, I think I ought to! XO

Lovely treasures Theresa. I used to collect those Paul sugar lumps to bring home for my hairdresser.

Theresa, a cruise on the Seine sounds nice right now...sigh. In the first posted pic., is everyone wearing coats? Sept. might be one of the best times to be in Paris. Now I am jealous along with you.

I really enjoyed the photographs and having a peek at your wonderful surroundings. Do I detect some items from Il Papiro, too?

Theresa Cheek said...

Good eye Mark! Yes, that would be another post to touch on all of the things I have from Italy!

I too would always rather be in Paris! I keep a clock in my studio set to Paris time just so every now and then I can look up and remind myself what I would be doing at that moment if I was there. lol

Thank you for the little tour!
