Over The Top....Last Of Paris...Versailles

Hello to all, I hope that you had a lovely Thanksgiving Holiday (my American friends) and to my overseas friends... a lovely regular weekend.

I'm posting the last of the Paris photos today that I'll share on the blog today...unless you have any other requests. I have lots more pictures of our Parisian adventures, but I don't want to bore you. Even though it's only been a couple of weeks since we were overseas visiting "Paris daughter" it seems like a lifetime ago, and now it's time to focus on other things.

Won't you travel with me to the over the top Palace of Versailles?

It was Armistice Day in France and we were fortunate to catch a parade in the village.........


Some of the worst weather that I've ever experienced in my many trips to Paris. Cold and raining and so much wind that your umbrella turned inside out and might put you into flight if you stood in one place too long. Mary Poppins was not French!



Speaking of that crazy French weather....this photo is not Versailles, rather was taken just this morning by "Paris daughter" outside of her Paris apartment. Yes, it's now snowing in Paris!


The trolley service over to the Petite Trianon was not running due to the inclement weather, and only served as a place to sit and get out of the cold. Unfortunately we didn't go to the Petite Trianon on this visit, as "Paris daughter" was not feeling up to the long walk due to her asthma.....


So much ornateness....if that's even a word!....







Hall of Mirrors......



Marie Antoinette's chamber. The last time that we were at Versailles we couldn't get close enough to even take a photo. One bonus to visiting in the off season was no lines or waiting anywhere......







I'll be back soon, I hope that you enjoyed the photos and that you have a great week.....

Shabby Chic Christmas Decorating, Romantic White Christmas Decorating and Pretty Pink Christmas Decorating

Taking a mini break here from all of my Paris pictures to post, but I will be back with more soon as well as another exquisite batch of Paris Flea Market treasures for the website hopefully this coming weekend.....

With the Thanksgiving Holiday this week I just wanted to wish all of you a very blessed holiday and share some of the past Christmas decorating photos from my blog....since I know that many of you have already started decorating, as I will this Friday......

First we have the beautiful White Christmas decor of Annamarie (aka Bocarose) from North Carolina. She emailed these to me last Christmas and they it's been a very popular post that keeps popping up time and again in what you have been reading, so here are her photos once again.......






















Next we have some photos that were shot by Dan Mayers and styled by Fifi ONeill of my own home a couple of years ago, and were published in Romantic Country Magazine.....







And finally a few photos of my home that were featured a couple of years ago in Romantic Homes Magazine.....






Lots of love to you from here....
