Last week I showed you photos from our trip to Paris, but what did I bring with med home, you ask? Normally, I never buy souvenirs, but in Paris I went all-in on souvenirs.
Of course I bought jewellery:
At home, I had already planned on finding a beautiful snow globe and an old fashioned souvenir scarf. Good old fashioned souvenirs, the way I like them. Here is the snow globe, which plays La Vie En Rose:
I ended up buying two scarfs:
I also bought this lovely "pashmina" for only 8 dollars:
Nice quality and lovely woven pictures:
And I simply had to buy a little box of Macarons with me home:
A few mixed souvenirs: a contour cut of myself, which I didn't even noticed the artist made, since I was looking at the mouse having her portrait cut. A small practical purse, nice to have in my pocket, and a funny, vintage, naked lade who dances hula, when you turn the knob under her feet.
DH found these lovely table mats, which have other pictures at the reverse side, so we have eight different motifs to enjoy:
We visited a wonderful luxury candy shop, where I bought a little, expensive box with French nougat:
And I looked over the shoulders of all the artists everywhere, and ended up buying these two beautiful paintings:
In Shakespeare & Company I bought this lovely bag, which I think my needlework will live in, and two small books:
A funny black and white watch in early sixties style:
A black and white hand bag, which I got for about 20 dollars:
black and white shoes I bought in Germany perfectly.
I bought an expensive newspare umbrella in La Fayette:
I also visited an artist shop near our hotel. I looked around alone for a long time. It was lovely, and I "talked" with the sweetest elderly ladies, although they only spoke French and I don't. I bought a really nice sketch book and a watercolour palette with 18 different colours, which I look very much forward to trying:
And I bought dull, ugly shoes:
Perhaps not the most exciting shopping, but then different, I suppose.
Next week I end my Paris theme with Nice and Mixed, so look forward. :)
