Table et Tabouret



As we strolled down from Montmartre one afternoon,  Peter pushed a door, Mary and I followed close behind, ( she and I are quite brave when we have Peter to do the 'splaining in French if we get caught)  and voilà, a charming little apartement courtyard.  It had one of the tackiest *Christmas trees that we all agreed we'd ever seen.  All was not lost however, many nice photo ops were spotted.   Here's one!

* and oui, you'll have to wait till next Christmas season to see the tree! :)

Very atmospheric, V. And having someone else to do the 'splaining is always handy.

I like surprise and this is a very nice one. A pity we have to wait so much for the tackiest tree in Paris!

You never know what you'll find behind closed doors in Paris! Looking forward to that tacky tree, V.

You and Mary could be Lucy and Ethel with Peter as "Ricky" doing the 'splaining - hah! Love this little vignette... who would suspect that there is a tacky-tree nearby...
