Searching for...

Thursday, 17 July 2014


We've got sun!


inspiring some outdoor plans for this weekend -
including helping my eldest move into their home now that they're back to home turf.  One pleased mom, to say the least!

In keeping with the Paris in July theme,
today I'm thinking of enjoying some temps de cafe en plein air.
Sounds like a perfect way to spend a sunny summer afternoon!
and you're invited to join me...
How about taking a time out at one of these Paris spots?

Cafe in Montmartre, Paris

Parisian Caf茅

Perfectly quintessential checkered red cloths!


Restaurant Laparouse


 Au vieux Paris D'Arcole


La Maison at Paris West Bank

I love the elegant French ambience of this Paris Tearoom
and the window reflections tell such a charming story of the area...

Terrasse at Place des Vosges

or how about taking some refreshment on the River Seine ...?

Sooo many choices!  Different moods and presentations, but ALL inspire Anticipation....

Well, we're are rained in here this weekend - but your photo's of sunny Paris, basket of Croissants, and hot coffee posts, chairs in alley ways, and hanging flower pots will do me just fine for a vicarious weekend! Enjoy the moving..

Ah, c'est superbe! Paris was on my must-visit list last year but I had to postpone my trip for unplanned reasons.

Peut-être l'année prochaine. Maybe next year. Thanks for sharing those eye-catching photos.

si belle!!
I'd love to go there. All those little cafes - I'd sit and drink coffee and read and write and people watch forever.
and then I'd switch to wine and do it some more :)

Hello, friend. I see you are participating in Anita's link party. What lovely pictures on here today. The girls both went to Paris and loved everything about it. This picture of the restaurant and the lady in red is fabulous, I love it! And the cafes are so charming. Thank you for the Paris tour.

I hope you are enjoying the summer days, and it's so nice to visit with you again.
