|I wore my Grandma's poodle pin|
Our hotel was a mere few blocks from the bea-u-ti-ful Palais Garnier Opera House!
|The Palais Garnier Opera House|
was the inspiration for the opera house
in the Gaston Leroux novel, The Phantom of the Opera!
I loved it!! And so did Husband!!
So very beautiful!!

|Breakfast in a beautiful room|

There was so much to see and do in Paris, that there was no way we could fit it all in two days! But we did our best!!
One of my favorite places we visited, was the Jardin des Tuileries; where I caught my FIRST view of the Eiffel Tower! I was ecstatic!
|Lawn Mower! Ha!|
|You must hold hands with your loved one,|
as you stroll thru the Jardin des Tuileries!
I was dizzy with happiness at being so close to the Eiffel Tower, and I did a lot of frolicking there.
|I wore this charming dress by Bernie Dexter for my first Eiffel Tower visit!|
It has a print reminiscent of Monet's gardens at Giverny.
I wore it several times on my trip, and it always looked fabulous!!
|Too Much!! Aaaahh!|
No cameras allowed inside, but the
paintings were exquisite!
|Hop on Les Cars Rouges at the Palais Garnier,|
|and Hop off at the Arc de Triomphe!|
|Outside the Golden Gates of Versailles|
|The Hall of Mirrors|
|Path to the Petit Trianon|
|We sat for a spell, and had pretty pastel Ladurée macarons|
outside the Petit Trianon! Scrumptious!!!
|These enchanting gardens in the Queen's Hamlet,|
reminded me so much of
Peter Rabbit and Mr. McGregor's garden!
Such orderly rows!!
|A romantic evening to end our Parisian getaway!|
