Champagne!


My last day in Paris, while having lunch, I turned around and spotted this lovely bowl of champagne chilled and ready to pop.  Le sigh.......

Virginia...had hoped to meet you..actually thought I saw you one day last week. Sorry to hear you are headed for USA...we're walking the Latin Quarter today. We are in Paris until 24th when we start our driving tour with friends. Love looking for all the little things in Paris that the tourist don't see. Internet has been spotty so this is first time I've checked your blog since we arrived on 3rd. Ah Paris..like you I could stay here forever. Martha

Ah! Only in Paris .... Beautiful champagne and in such a classy bowl.... You must return soon.

Virginia said...

Oh Martha, I was there for a week in Jan. I'm sorry we missed each other too. I did run into a blog reader while I was there one day. I'll post those photos soon.

My toast to you, V: A la prochaine visite! (I'm sure they'll keep the bubbly chilled for you.)

Next time that champagne has your name on it Virginia. I bet that's a vintage chiller!

I came over to offer a Champagne toast to M. Doisneau since today is the 100th anniversary of his birth! Champagne just tastes better in Paris... Allons-y!

Virginia,

I read your comment to Genie after my visit there and I hope you won't mind my sharing in your Champagne toast to M. Doisneau?

Great image!

I didn't realize you were back in Paris, but as you know, I haven't been up to much of anything for the past three months, and it appears it will be quite a while before I can even think of another trip.

Harriet said...

Let's pretend that you ordered that champagne for a get-together with all of your friends....but you would need more bottles if that were the case!

Mary said...

And what an exquisite sight it is! I would want to linger in Paris for a few more hours. Slip on an ice blue gossamer gown, wear my hair upswept, and enjoy a glass or two of that champagne with Cary Grant. Of course i'd have to travel back to the Paris of the mid 60s... but that would be divine...

Virginia said...

WEll you are all full of great ideas for that champagne today. Merci. Waiter, more friends are on their way. More champagne svp!

Starman, I was there in Jan. And as you know, one week was NOT enough. I"m glad you're on the mend. Paris will wait for you. :)

A fine scene, Virginia. A few more bottles of champs in that nice silver bucket and you will have enough of the bubbly stuff to get a party off to a good start.
