Oh, what a gorgeous blue bedroom & view of the Seine - I want to go!

Piper Jacquelyn said...

UMMM, that pic overlooking the Seine is BEAUTIFUL! WOW, I wish my view was that. Rather than the busiest street in Omaha - DODGE street. Not even a pretty name, ugh!

Fifi, I always look forward to your posts to see what new Parisian scene you'll have. I've stayed in an apartment that had a view of the Eiffel Tower and one that was on the Isle St. Louis right on the Quai. Wonderful memories!

Hey Friend, As usual, you're continuing to outshine yourself! I possibly found a venue for you to sell your cards in a shop in Charleston, SC. A "Posh" shop that you would adore! Pricey, but well shopped amongst the locals and the tourists. I sent you an email about it...hoping I can get you "connected" to Jeanne! :) Hugs~ ~CC Catherine
