Goodbye Paris...You Will Be Missed.

My sister and I went for a walk...and found the Notre Dame...it is an amazing building:):)


We wanted to go to the O'dorsay...but, when we got there...there was at least 400 people in line. So, I took a picture of the above statue and then left to find something else to do:):)

Down the street from the O'dorsay Museum...is an art store that has been run by the same family for generations... Pablo Picasso shopped here:):)
.....a peek inside the art store.

                                    ...walking along...fresh fruits and veggies, and flowers:)

 ...and we found a Hard Rock Cafe....in Paris!!! I had to take a rest, and get a yummy drink:)
                                                                               
..and you know we would NOT leave Paris without hitting the Louvre....here I am standing in the middle of it:):) Waiting to go in.....
                       When we got in...we made a beeline for the Mona Lisa...had to see her:):)
                                        ...and the La Venus de Milo.... just beautiful!!!

We didn't try and see the whole museum...which is impossible...so we stuck to the statues. They are just breath taking!!!
...and to finish my Paris trip with you...I will show you some of my treasures I brought home with me!!!! Love old books and stamps. Very happy with my treasures.

Well, thanks so much for following along with my Paris trip.
It feels good to be home...

Remember my extra garage..I was going to turn into a nice big studio?
Construction starts TODAY!!!! the crew is here!!!! 
I will post pics for sure!!!
Much love- Sandie

You mean Venus de Milo is just out there in the open? I figured they'd have a rope or glass around her.

Thank you for taking us all along on your adventure of a lifetime. This will seem odd, but I imagined the Mona Lisa being larger than that. Can't wait to see your journal pages!

Hi Sandie . Wow thanks for the great photos during your trip and the tour. Very exciting getting your studio started.

Great pictures. Was a Mona Lisa anticlimactic? It was packed the day we went and you can't get close nor see well through the glass (or is it plexiglass...). I fell in love with some beautiful, vibrant old pottery. Much to see and do in Paris.
