2 cheeky monkeys in Paris

We are back from a very, very romantic trip to Gay Paris.
We did it all...
  • Dinner on a Bateau Parisienne on the Seine.
  • Fabulous Passementerie inside the Opera house.
  • La Tour Eiffel at night.
  • Sacre Couer.
  • Furnishing fabric shops including Pierre Frey, Sahco Hesslein & Robert Allen.
  • My friend Greg Everingham, the same as ever, cute dimples & all.
  • Gallery Vivienne, where Richard had lived for a while in the 70's.
  • A fabulously hilarious dinner at Richard's friend Lizz's.
  • Morrocan dinner with Liz & William Fairbank and a very cute french bulldog at the next table.
  • The Decorative arts Museum complete with Jean Lanvin's apartment interior.
  • A shop that sold ribbon for medals. (I had a very hard time choosing the 50cm pieces I managed to buy from the very crabby shop assistant).
  • The Joyce Ma shop with an outfit made of black & white check, with a 3 dimensional deer across the shoulders made in the same fabric with matching tiny deer antler hat. Her knitted humans as brooch seen here. Also her white feather concoction. Stuff I would love to make but never thought there could possibly be a market for it.
  • There are more photo's over at my Flickr page.

Great photos. Reminds me of our trip to Paris to see Sylvie Guillem dance. We met her. Lovely person!
I hope to return to that great city! Even just to have a drink in the Lipp brasserie

Darn....we'll have to go back for the Lipp brasserie.
