I am a little lost. 
I will take a little break from this fabulous life profile as my life isn't feeling so fabulous.
Today is a real day - it has hit me from out of the blue and yet somehow expected.
Today I really am a loss for words

A trip out of Paris- Part 1.

Claude Monet
14 November 1840 – 5 December 1926) was a founder of French impressionist painting.
He is also my favourite painter
I had to go and visit his home and gardens in Giverny. 
I have always wanted to do this but somehow missed the opportunity. 
On a beautiful Saturday morning we boarded a train at Saint Lazare in Paris and headed from 
Vernon-70kms to the West of Paris.
We were advised by one of our guides to hire on of these so we did. 
It was a fabulous 20 minute ride through the gorgeous  French country side to 
Maison Monet.
I was truly in Heaven, biking through the French country side with my two friends and feeling like school girls.
We passed by beautiful fields filled with wild poppies
Being a Florist I couldn't quite believe it. But this was just the beginning
There was so much more to come ...

Just a glimpse - the true water lilllies off the canvas for me.

Magical Montmartre

Taken from that lovely Park -Dianne
We went on a Friday and the markets were on
A feast for the eyes and the soul
Colourful characters such as these two 
Tea anyone?
We did stop for Lunch at the
Moulin de la Gallette...
miam miam!

Girls because you asked for it....

There is something about this wonderful shop that draws you in.

I know it's a do over but couldn't resist
The window displays usually stop you in your tracks!

The meaning behind the window..if you care to translate

The lovely thing is they change the window every week!

One day I will buy shoes from here.

Window shopping

The window displays in Paris are just lovely. 
I could spend hours literally window shopping.

I dont even remember what this display was of - but couldn't resist.

These little Ballet flats are good enough to eat!

Rue Saint Honorè didn't fail to impress.

Neither did Repetto- 51 Rue du Four, St Germain 

Nothing does in Paris.

Maybe you have been here

We spent a good part of one of our days looking for this restaurant- the Polidor. 
It was well worth it. The service was lovely and the food very good. 
Apparently it has been graced by quite the famous people for instance - Earnest Hemmingway and is actually spotlighted in "Midnight in Paris"
-which I absolutely adored and we saw while we were in Paris. 
It was wonderful coming out of the cinema at the Odeon and be in the very place you had seen on film.
