Sigh!  It’s wonderful to look back on.  I hope you enjoyed it too.  It’s a long Bank Holiday weekend here in England, so plenty to see and do.  I’ll still be walking on Monday so I’ll see you then.  Have fun, whatever you do, even if that’s nothing at all!

Cate at Show My Face would love you to play Six word Saturday, if you can find the time.



  1. WoW! Bridges are indeed your forte 🙂 That onion soup should be called cheese soup. I love cheese, but this stuff was too much for me :D. I remember Pont Alexendre which I love, and this knobs reminded me of my naughty video “Knobs and Knockers” that I “brought” from Paris :D. Marvelous, marvelous post!!!

      1. A busy and tiresome one, but I was at peace 🙂 I spent 5 hours taking pics at home tonight, and we put new shelves in the dining area – so a very useful weekend 🙂

    1. Hi Isabella? How are you? It’s so nice to find old friends on here. We were lucky that the sun was just setting as we crossed the square. Thanks a lot 🙂

    1. Thank you, Letizia 🙂 What a lovely surprise to find you on here! I rarely make it to my Reader and only occasionally to Facebook (where I usually saw your posts). Hope all’s well with you? 🙂

    1. Thank you so much! I’ve been trying to match my header to the post but it doesn’t work too well when you move on to the next post. I wish there was a way to anchor them together but that always involves a paid upgrade or whatever. 😦

      1. Yes I was helping my Mom in law with a garage sale, now headed to a wedding. 🙂 Maybe you could crochet me a toque like the Eiffel Tower as it feels like winter is around the corner here. 🙂

  2. I always enjoy what you make of Six-word Saturday, and I particularly like your Paris miscellanea. The standouts for me are that gleaming statue and the wedding photo with its reflections. The whole assemblage gives a great sense of many delights. Are there more to come?

    1. Thanks, Meg 🙂 I suspect there might be.
      Monday’s walk for sure, and I have to cover Versailles, don’t I? And no doubt more miscellanea 🙂
      I leave for the Algarve on 1st September so I’ll have to fit it in before then.

      1. I’m a bit itchy to head off again myself. At home I have to entertain myself – and keep house and garden under control. I’m just signed up for an online Polish course with voice recognition. That should keep me out of mischief! Whether it will make me fluent in Polish is another matter.

  3. Great shots Jo. The lines and light in the wedding album shot are very enticing. I’m looking for some doorknobs so I’ll have to seek those out on my next trip. Glad you had such a wonderful and memorable time.

      1. I have never made it to Giverny even though I lived in Paris for 8 months during university. Would love to visit. Can’t wait to see your photos on that! 🙂

    1. If I could have rented a little room and moved in, I would, Suze! (d’Orsay) I loved it 🙂
      Thank you! I wasn’t sure whether Mick would enjoy the city but it was a great relief to find that he did (apart from having exceedingly sore feet 🙂 )
      Any plans for the Bank Hol? We’ve got rain, which is a huge shame for all the local shows, but I’ve plenty to do on here. 🙂 Hugs, darlin’.

  4. Lovely photos! They brought back memories of a long weekend in Paris with my son when we were based in England. (Easy access to Europe is one of the things I miss most about living in the UK.) I hope your French is better than mine! Language difficulties added a great deal to my Paris experience!

    1. After struggling with Portuguese and Polish I was happy to find that my French came back to me fairly easily 🙂 But everyone was very pleasant and helpful- more than I would have expected as they don’t have that reputation. Speak as you find! 🙂

  5. 🙂 Thank you for posting these, Jo. I love Paris, your pictures bring many memories.
    I was going to tell you my favorites but there are so many that I’ve seen personally and am liking your picture. Probably “Rodin’s wonderful sculpture garden” is my favorite. I get lost for half days at a time there.

    Second, I have decided is the Musee d’Orsay with the clock. It is hard to think that this wonderful museum was once magnificent train station until one looks up or around. The clock has always been my favorite there but the art is wonderful.

    I don’t have a 6WS post this morning. Thank you again for being faithful there. 🙂

    1. Hi Jim 🙂 Nice to keep in touch, darlin. I’ll pop over and see what mischief you’ve been up to a bit later. We have a damp Bank Holiday up here so I should have some time free 🙂

  6. Oh, Jo, these are some of your best photos ever! I love the statue and the doorknobs – please tell me you brought some home with you? I can just see them on an old painted chest of drawers. And that wedding photo – oh wow! Perfectly framed. I feel the urge to go to Paris!

    1. On the way to Sydney, perhaps? 🙂 (joking- but only just)
      Thanks a lot, Jude. I do like these shots, though I shouldn’t say it.
      My ever-loving was very skilled at turning a blind eye whenever I hovered in the Gallery, Jude 😦 They weren’t expensive and I really loved them. I loved the ‘passages’! Wonderfully quirky shops. I would have hunted them all down but we ran out of time. I found quite a few though. 🙂
