Today is all about Paris inspiration,
and the first stop is a mysterious
and private Avenue Frochot (in Pigalle)
(images via Messy Nessy).

When I visited Paris, we were so busy
that the days flew by and believe it or not,
I never did sit still at a café to people watch!

My favorite thing to do in  Paris?

Wandering.
Allowing myself time to be surprised and

drawn into the mystique.

Avenue Frochot has a most colorful cultural
history, and these images explain part of the story.

My curiosity got the best of me with
all this Avenue Frochot lovely, and I
wondered whether there may be an
apartment rental on Avenue Frochot...
I found one that available to
lease beginning tomorrow!
Wanna tour it?
Cool.

I'll tell you what. If you buy it,
I'll pack a bag and help you strip that wallpaper
and polish the magnifique herringbone floors.
(Can I keep some wallpaper though?)

One more thing.

I reviewed an advance copy of
this book by Susan Cahill, and it's
magic:


The Streets of Paris

Take Susan Cahill with you to Paris or
allow her to transport you there virtually
with The Streets of Paris!

The book's release is next week,
and you can pre-order now
for a lovely summer read!

Are my Frenchie friends tres inspired?

Peace to you right where you are.

  3. I, too, am a Paris street walker. I spend 8 to 10 hours a day just walking around the streets photoing all the fabulous architecture. Good way to shed a couple pounds as well. There is something beautiful to photo very few steps.
