Wonderful weekend

I went away again this weekend... The evidences:

This is the garden of the Petit Palais in Paris. Nice, isn't it? The inside was even nicer, with an exhibition presenting  Yves Saint Laurent's dresses. Unfortunately, no photo allowed, but believe me, it is breath-taking!

This is the front of La Madeleine Church. Along one side, there is a flower market, and tyou can buy the finest foods all around the square. Yummy... note to self: come back on a weekday, when the shops are open!
However, the Pinacotheque was open and presented Edvard Munch or the Anti-scream. Again, no photo allowed... far more disturbing than YSL, but very interesting.

This hen decorates the metro station under the church.

This is Le Louvre, the palace of the French kings.
Le Palais Royal with les Colonnes de Buren.

I don't know what it is, but I liked it...

And the most important part of the weekend: enjoying the visit of friends from Australia, and my daughter.
I think you can find out who are the mother/daughter couples :-)

Take care!

Sounds like a great weekend! I also wanted to mention about the doll pattern by Susan Claire - I know her, she is a Kiwi.

Thanks for stopping by my blog. I'm pleased with my passport holder too. I'm making another. I was delighted to see your pictures of Paris and other travels. Paris and Austrailia are on my list of places to visit.

Oh Vero, was sehe ich, Paris, Australien!!!

Aber das Beste ist das Foto, wo Du selber mit Deinen Lieben in die Kamera lächelst. Schön, Dich zu sehen, auch wenn es nur Internet ist. Ich habe diesmal erstmals auch ein Foto von mir im Blog!
Ganz liebe Grüße von Renate
