Paris Markets and Walks

Here's an overview of my French vacation in a collaged calendar. Each day I added a photo or note that represented my experience.

I stayed in Montparnnasse- the 14th Arrondissment and really enjoyed the neighborhood.
Monsieur Gilles, the hotel receptionist, became one of my French professors.
A sketch walk in Jardin du Luxembourg.

The food market Saturday morning on the Boulevard Edgar Quinet.
The Port Vanves flea market
I visited one museum located at the Hotel de Cluny- Musée National de Le Moyan Age (Middle Ages) to see the unicorn tapestries, Book of Hours and other treasures.
The bouquinists along the Seine offer not only all kinds of books but wonderful botanical drawings and prints.

Oh I'm in heaven. Your photos are so delicious and the calendar idea is wonderful. This would make a marvelous book in itself.

I'm so glad you saw the unicorn tapestries at the Cluny. These are so incredible. Thanks for showing us some photos of Giverny, too. It looks like you had grand weather.

I love your calendar! I hope that you are bringing all of this to FW in January, hint, hint.
