A visit to Laduree in Paris

On a sunny Sunday in Paris
my daughter and I visited 

a beautiful Ladurée shop just off 

the Avenue des Champs-Élysées.

It was a magical experience
the decor is exquisite and I could easily imagine
Marie Antoinette frequenting
such establishments had they been there in her day!

Such lavish displays of macarons and chocolates
made it difficult to narrow down my selections
of flavours and boxes!

The only drawback was the throngs of other tourists
with the same idea as me....
but that didn't stop me joining the queue
and eventually my turn came around to be served!

If you are a macaron lover and visiting Paris
then I recommend you
don't miss this treat!

I'm joining 
Judith for Mosaic Monday
Stephanie for Roses of Inspiration.

Thank you ladies for hosting

Take care and
be kind to one another

Merci à bientôt

Provins Île-de-France

Provins, is a fortified medieval village 
in the Île-de-France region.

We visited on a beautiful summer's day

and there was much to enjoy. 

Charming old wooden and stone buildings,

an authentic creperie,

as well as an ice cream shop

we can't ask for more than that!

I love these old wooden and stone houses

still standing after five or six hundred years.

This beautiful 1929 stone plaque
commemorating the 500 year anniversary
since the visit of 
Jeanne d'Arc (Joan of Arc)
to Provins in 1429.

I'm joining 

Thank you ladies for hosting!

Take care and 
be kind to one another!

Merci à bientôt
