Deux oiseaux


Ma Bourgogne is a café I frequented during my stay in Paris the summer of 2010.  I felt comfortable there and the waiters were delightful and took good care of me. Late one summer afternoon, as I sat outside with a glass of wine, I had fun snapping photos from a prime seat at the Place des Vosges.  The lanterns will be unmistakable for you Paris lovers.

WE HAVE OUR WINNERS! 
M, who lives in Katy, Texas will receive a set of Paris Walking Tour cards
Martine- Alison , Martinelison, who lives in France will receive one of my 8x10 photographs.
Thank you all for entering and for all of your wonderful comments this week and for the past three years.

I feel like I'm right there at your (or "our" even if we've never managed to be there at the same time) café on the beautiful Place des Vosges. Merci, V!
