I had a great day yesterday! Christelle came into Paris and we took in a little Christmas shopping. We went to a large, upscale mall, Galleries Lafayette. Inside was a four-story Christmas tree.
I have to go back another day...earlier in the morning and get some photos of the exterior windows. They had robotic scenes...so cute! It wasn't horribly crowded but enough that it was not great for picture taking.
Christelle asked if I was looking for anything in particular. I do have a collection of glass ornaments I am always looking to add too. We found a wonderful ornament shop and I came home with a new acquisition.
German crafted by Inge-Glass, which started out as a cottage industry all the way back to 1596. (I think they have this technique perfected) Each ornament was individually mouth blown and hand painted. They came in a very sturdy wooden box with extra padding for when these treasures make the journey to Alaska
We took a long walk and of course different topics came up...I have some new ideas for blogging posts. Chocolate...McDonalds in France vs US...French frozen-food dinners...important stuff! But I only have a few more days to get my quilt squares off the dining room floor...hubby returns Monday morning and the dining room table is his home office. All that point-matching takes time!
