Paris--part deux!!

Okay, I promised you more Paris pics and here they are--enjoy!!!



The Champs Elysee & Arc de Triomphe at night!




The book fair- I arrived a little late due to the snow-and was greeted by a long line of lovely readers!


Including Celine who I know from Twitter!


Signing!



Slightly blurry action shot of signing!



A quick interview after the signing



Versailles!


Inside the gates of Versailles-thinking about all the times Damen used to visit!



The very snowy gardens!


I was so excited to find a Murakami exhibit in the works! The blend of the formal & whimsical was brilliant!



Love this little blue haired girl!



In the hall of mirrors--Damen has walked there many times!



Hall of mirrors . . .




Photographing ourselves in the hall of mirrors!




More Murakami magic!



Marie Antoinette's bed!!!



Where they dined!


Portrait of Marie with her children



I can never resist a visit to Le Louvre!




The charming streets of Montmartre!



Our hotel featured a Swarovski crystal exhibit-this one reminded me of the infinity symbol, which reminded me of The Immortals!



That's all for now . . . have a good day, everyone!
xoxo
