Monday is 'Missing Paris Day'~Petit Palais in Paris





This photo of the Petit Palais seemed appropriate after my Angel post. This exquisite building was created for the Universal Exposition of 1900 and houses the Musee des Beaux-Arts de la Ville de Paris housing works by some of the best Impressionists including Pisarro, Cassat, Manet, Gauguin, Renoir and Morisot.

Avenue Winston Churchill, 8th Arrondissement

I'm putting it out to the angels for another trip to Paris soooonnn!

Bon Semaine!

Catherine!~ So lovely to see you. Yes, aren't they enchanting? I couldn't resist after my last post. Hope you are enjoying more time for your art. We miss you here!

Lovely pictures! It looks amazing!

Thanks Jen~ Glad you stopped by!

You know what I would like? I'd like to meet you there. We could have coffee at a cafe and people watch as we get to know each other. Then, you could show me your favorite places. And of course, I'd need an entire day in a museum like that.

Ms. K @ Write On Thyme said...

That sounds like such fun, Relyn! There's even a little outdoor cafe inside this museum. It's not the largest museum in Paris but you could still spend much of the day here. Let's make that date soon! ;~)
