    Such a lovely idea…a cafe in Paris. You are lucky to get to go so often!

    Oh! Les muguets sont une très belle tradition pour le 1 mai! Don’t you love how the green chairs are always in use in Paris? It’s a National holiday in Mexico today. The parks here will be busy today! Bon weekend à vous!

    Remembering all the little bouquets of muguets I’ve traded a street vendor a 2-Euro coin for and brought back to our hotel room. . . and next week I’ll be there again. One of these years, perhaps we’ll manage to coordinate trips. Meanwhile, Happy May Day!

    I’ll be in Paris in two weeks, too! (I’ll be the one trying to fill my suitcase with only Eileen Fisher – ha!)

    Hi Susan, do you actually own the earrings shown here? They do look great. A different hoop design for sure. I am curious as to whether they are substantial or lightweight?? Would you know? Many thanks, Helen

      Hi Helen, I don’t own them (yet) but they’ve been sitting in my shopping cart for some time. They do look lightweight which is a must for me these days.

    I really like the color of that rain jacket.
    Too bad it costs as much as the airfare. 🙁

      RoseAG, yes it’s a pretty piece, but pricey. I always try to include some similar styles in a range of prices in the widget at the bottom of the post.

    You lucky duck! I only get to go in winter, with my ski-mad husband. Not that I’m complaining. Go to the Palais Royal and peek in the windows of vintage dealer Didier Ludot for me, will ya?

    Paris in Spring must be some sights! Somehow I always ended up in Paris during the coldest month! Enjoy your trip and looking forward to some great shots on yr Instagram page!

    Ah…is there anything better than Paris in May? I’m so jealous!
