Day 4 in Europa

Today is our last full day in Paris... we are going to be on the go and Fifi will be fulfilling a challenge put forth by Splenderosa with her "By  Invitation Only" group...


The inspiration for the challenge by Vicki Archer and Tish Jett (fellow participants of this challenge)...
"Gustave Flaubert, the French writer best known for his novel Madame Bovary, is generally  attributed with the saying, "Le bon Dieu est dans le detail".

Over the years this expression has morphed and changed but the simple message remains the same...and that is… that whatever we do, should be done thoroughly and to the very best of our abilities. The details are what make all the difference..."

Gustave Flaubert was in Paris studying law... and UNLIKE Fifi... he found the City "distasteful"... Fifi will do her VERY BEST to prove him wrong... wonder what he would think if he knew streets, hotels and restaurants were name after him... perhaps he would not think the City so distasteful, non? Starting with breakfast... oui oui oui... this WILL be painted by Fifi...

Time to explore Paris...today we shop, eat and wander around different arrondissements of Paris...

"J'adore New York" by Isabelle Lafleche from Making Magique on Vimeo.

The mannequins are spectacular as is the food display. Just as we would expect in
Paris.

Lovely things to do in Paris. Lots of color and the photos are delicious. We have had PINK MARTINI playing in our Town's Concert in the Park twice now.

Je vais devoir aller voir dans mon parc si l'un de mes paons ne se serait pas fait la belle! car j'en aperçois un sur tes photos!
je passe réellement un bon moment en admirant l'ensemble des tes photos, j'ai l'impression de visiter Paris autrement...
Gros bisous
