Soldes (sales) in Paris occur in January and July. Repetto's window is always my favorite.

Kiosque des noctambules

Paris Mètro stop Palais Royal - Musée du Louvre ( Lignes 1 and 7) is probably our favorite stop. We love the elaborate steel and  colorful glass structure designed by artist Jean-Michel Othoniel,  titled "Kiosque des noctambules ( Kisok of the Night Walkers). An added plus is this stop is located at Place Colette just steps from our favorite wine stop, Café le Nemours. Win, win!

Marly le roi V - Un détail

 Found at the rock foundation of a home. I love the details and Marly le Roi did not disappoint.

Marly le Roi - Un, deux,trois

For the next few days a little mini series. In 2012, Mary and I made a day trip by train to Vaucresson to visit a blog friend. Niki drove us to nearby Marly-le-Roi to photograph. It's a charming small town just 11 miles west of Paris. I hope you'll enjoy visiting this week.

Of course I love dining with friends in Paris, the more the merrier, but lunch, glass of wine,  or a special cup of tea or chocolat chaud alone is always lovely. Ladurée on Bonaparte is a place I seem to always go back to. My favorite is rose petal ice cream and violet tea.

Paris Rouge à Nöel - Merci

Merci, located in the Marais, is one of our favorite stores. At Christmas this cute little voiture rouge is perfect.

Nöel à Paris

Café Nemours. The simple green trees are the perfect decoration.

Noël à Paris - Galerie Vivienne

For several trips we stayed in a lovely apartment owned by friends of ours in Cincinnati. It's a terrific location, just blocks from the Palais Royal and across the street from Galerie Vivienne. This beautiful passage is my favorite. At Christmas it's magical.

Temporarily Out of Order

Many of you have asked if I'm in Paris this week. Well, it was planned, but the massive strikes, including Metro, buses and oh so much more were scheduled to start today, so I made the decision to postpone the trip. No one knows for certain how long the strikes will last, but from what I've read, they won't even sit down and talk till Monday and who knows what will result. We hope to make the trip in February or March. Surely they will have all gone back to work by then!

In the meantime, I will continue to share the Noël à Paris photos from years past.

Cathédrale Notre Dame de Senlis

This little side door looks hardly large enough for an adult to walk through. This French Gothic cathedral in Senlis FR was completed in 1191. We took the train there last November with our friend Owen Phillips who lives in nearby Chantilly. We were lucky enough to enjoy an organ saxophone recital while there. Tomorrow, we'll go inside for a look.

Paris Rouge - Charlie

Proof that you can count on finding something charming/interesting to photograph in even the smallest Paris café.
