Sunday Reading

Paris on my mind: Inspiring Parisian shopping and decorating ideas. Mouthwatering Paris restaurant reviews. A new book about the joys (and pitfalls) of living in Paris.

Provence also on my mind, especially after browsing through this enticing site.

Looking for holiday rentals in France to die for? Check out these chic apartments in Paris and gorgeous houses scattered all over the country.
This is the apartment my sister and I are staying in at the end of the month. Looks fabulous, non?

All of the recent showers have brought out the beautiful May flowers.

I'm not the only one telling her Becoming a French Citizen tales. Heather in Paris is sharing her story too.

A treasured birthday gift designed by my Languedoc Lasses and fashioned by a very talented jeweler and a great friend. Pin It

A very nice post, Loulou. I'm home from a fantastic trip to Paris and am obsessed with everything French. I hope to return someday soon.

Hi LouLou,
I just read an article about regulations in making rosé in Bézier. I thought of you. It is in NY - food&wind section.
BTW, I still am following your blog but kind of busy with the trip to London next week.
Can't wait to read more about the broken arm.

The apartment looks lovely -- bet you can hardly wait! Staying in an apartment is really the best way to enjoy Paris.

As you know we went to Paris last month, wish I had known about these apartments, ours was adequate and in a brilliant location so not too bad, but I think if I go with my husband we will upgrade a little bit :-) Going to put this link in my favourites.

I love the bracelet what a fantastic present!!

WOW! That's all I can say.

Dreams are free :)

Jo said...

Oh wow, the apartment looks really nice and inviting. Makes me feel like home and not a stay in some hotel.

Loulou said...

So glad to hear that you had a good trip! I must catch up with your blog...I'm assuming you've written a lot about it.

I saw that article the other day too, but thanks for calling to my attention.
Have a great trip to London! Any particular reason you're going? For a holiday I hope?

It is. I can't not shop at the markets and Fromageries in Paris! It is all too tempting.

The owner is a really sweet man. I'm sure he'll have something for you.
I love my bracelet! She is so talented.

Fortunately they are. I have many myself...

It will be the perfect place to hang out when our feet are tired!

Wish I could be there with you to enjoy the Paris Cheese Tour again!!
So sad I'm missing you just a few weeks, nevermind, we'll meet again this summer your place!
PS: If your friend ever needs a housekeeper for his flat, I'm here!
Lots of kisses!

Loulou said...

Don't worry...I'll be back in Paris next year and we can do another cheese tour! :)
Can't wait to see you in July.
Have a safe trip back. Bisous.

I like your Sunday Reading idea; nice links.

This apartment looks wonderful! That's a great way to do Paris -- I did it once, and would love to try it again.

I love having an apartment so we can shop at the markets and enjoy time cooking while in Paris. It is the best way to enjoy the city.
