Back in Paris

Back in Paris 
and it's been cool and rainy here. 
But nice to get some distance from the ad nauseam of US politics.
I've sent my guy down to the South of France
to help a friend look for real estate investments.
Looking at property is one of his favorite things to do
and they get some fun together which usually means eating much good food.
 I'm making the quiet time into a needed writing and reading retreat. 
Though most of my time has been spent sending out queries, also needed.  

Am including a few photos of one of my favorite buildings in the 15th,
the Art Nouveau gem by Jules Lavirotte built between 1899 and 1901.
I have to make a trip by it on every visit. 
To see a full blog post and more photos on the building,

Below are a couple of another of his buildings 
just around the corner on Square Rapp.  

Nice to be back on this forum after too much time away.
Wishing all a colorful and peaceful fall!

  1. How nice to spend the beginning of Fall in Paris! Quiet time, reading, and eating delicious food sounds like a wonderful time. The lady art on the building is incredible. Enjoy your time in Paris. And rain is always a good thing. Welcome back, and good to see a post from you again, Kirsten.

    Happy Autumn days to you.


    1. Thanks for coming by, Sheri! As they say, Paris is always a good idea. Loved your photos!

  2. Welcome back to blogland, Kirsten, and thanks for stopping at mine. Oh, to be in Paris! How glorious. And nice to have your own time to do with as you wish for a few days. It sounds divine. Avenue Rapp is so spectacular. Thanks for sharing these photos. I looked back at your post -- those entrances are beyond belief! Enjoy. (How could you not?)

  3. Having a few days to myself as a writing retreat was just what I needed after a busy summer. Thanks so much for stopping in!
