|Via Personally Selected|
Talk about a feast for the eyes… Bonjour Paris by Luisa Maria of Personally Selected may be one of the most beautiful blog posts I have ever seen. There are several video/music clips throughout to set the scene so be sure to click on those as well. At the top of the page is a “translate” option so you can read the words Luisa Maria wrote to accompany all this gorgeousness (I fell in love with this post before I realized I could translate it).
|Via Dreams on 34th Street|
More loveliness comes from Dreams on 34th Street…in Mon Rêve…Fille de Fleur Lynne dreamed of opening a French flower shop…that also sells pastries…and has French book readings and art classes for children…I can pretty much guarantee you I would be a regular at her shop if she opened it near where I live.
