Window Peeping

Tis yet another bright and warm day in Paris, while Texas is getting more rain. We could use some here, actually. The city is looking a bit dry and dusty. Sprinklers are on in the parks. I cannot keep the layer of dust off of my furniture because the windows are open day and night,which makes me very happy in every other respect. Dust mites are a small price to pay for the heavenly breeze that has been keeping our apartment nice and cool.

I have been admiring lots of store windows on my walks. I cannot ever capture them without glare, though, as the sun has been shining 14 hours a day for weeks. So just ignore the reflection, s’il vous plait.

This store, Brunelli Cucinelli, always captures my eye with its creative windows. The theme this month appears to be summer gardens.

Like at home, white is making a big summer splash here.

I have never been inside this church, Madeleine, so I don’t know about its windows. But right now it has a glorious floral display across its front steps.

This was a nice window in the Henckels kitchen store.

I peeped in a closed up place the other evening and admired this bicycle, propped and waiting for the new day.

Finally, Printemps has some lovely mechanized windows right now- and it’s not even Christmas!

    What will we do when we do not have your wonderful photos to wake up to in the morning?
    Glad to hear that “white” fashion at home is in step with Paris “white” fashion or are we a year behind and in time?

Hollah back y'all!
