La dame de la mosaïque



I will confess that I know nothing of this lovely mosaic on the premier étage of a building, near Shakespeare and Company. I welcome further information from my keen readers!

UPDATE:  Thanks to a nice reader, the mystery of the lady is solved. This is Polly Maggoo, a rather famous bar in the 5eme!

Le Ciel est bleu à Paris!


Live update from Paris!
We landed Wednesday morning and hit the ground running despite the fact that Mary and I didn't sleep the entire flight even though we were upgraded to Business! After lunch with Peter, Genie and daughter Holly, we wandered around the 1eme.  Peter and I wound up the day with our feet up at the fountain in the Palais Royal gardens.  Yesterday the Sempé exhibit at the Hotel de Ville and lunch at Reminet. Then Peter, Mary and I walked our feet off in the 5eme in search of some shops I had on my list.  Today the Pet Cemetery and lunch with Richard Nahem and Zabie Johnson. We're on our way to Eric Tenin's for a party of bloggers and many of his Paris friends.  A computer/French Google snafu has caused a delay in reporting. I hope to put up another post in a day or two.

Adornment


It seems to me that almost every building in Paris has some wonderful detail that catches the eye. I liked this face and the pretty lantern hanging below it.
