I have a friend who is interested in the pillars at the Porte des Lions at the Louvre that I showed you last post. I went to take more photos (haven't gotten them sorted, but I'll post them soon, promise) and got distracted as well.
I wandered into a scarf shop on the Rue de Rivoli - the window display just caught my eye and dragged me in.
Look at these gorgeous silk scarves. They are two-sided and feel so luxurious.
There were also incredibly soft wool scarves - real pashminas (compared to the Pashmina 100% viscose fakes that you see elsewhere). Such glorious colors as well. Wool holds dye so incredibly - I don't know why more quilters aren't using it. (We know why I'm not - stupid allergies.)
I broke down and bought a scarf. Not showing it to you yet since it has disappeared into the closet of prezzies. My husband is a "not good" gift purchaser, so I buy my own presents and he gives them to me at appropriate times. It works well for both of us.
Yet another movie poster for you. I didn't get such a hot picture of the actual poster for Les Simpson, but I loved seeing it displayed here. Note the french flag at the top of the pole.And that's the Opera house in the background from this angle. D'oh.
My sweetie and I are going for a walk, a visit to the english language bookstores, and lunch. See ya.
