Pretty Pink Paris

Who knew Paris could wear pink so well?

We are off in two days and before I went, I wanted
in her

Simply Irresistible Party.

I also have to help Beverly at
How Sweet The Sound
celebrate her third anniversary

Sacre Coeur is gorgeous here in a pale pink cast
of the sunset.

Who could walk by a pastry shop dressed in pink?

Or this pale pink cupcake shop - Chloe S.?

Here is what I found when I "googled" 
Chocolate Shops!
If you have read my profile, now you see what I  meant
about a
  chocolate shop on every corner.

I can't wait to try some out for you!

Maybe I will even bring some home.

Wouldn't these cookies be fun to make?

Someday I will have to stay in this
Disneyland Hotel in Paris.

OOH LA LA to the max!

Pink Christmas lights - I can't imagine what Christmas in 
Paris would be like!

Luv the pink poodle in a Paris store window.

I will be tickled pink to go to Galeries LaFayette
to shop 'til I drop.

I know we won't have nearly enough time here in this 
beautiful city.

The sun will set too soon 
and then we will be off to Bologna, Italy.
I can't wait to share them with you.

Could Paris be prettier in any other color?
(Well, maybe at night when she is dressed in gold!)

I will be pinking this up with

WOW, what amazing pictures, one of my favorite pictues is the Disney Hotel Paris!

Denise@alloverroses said...

Oh you lucky girl! From looking at the pictures you will have a wonderful trip. The disneyland Hotel is gorgeous. Loved your post! Happy Pink Saturday!

Uh oh I got to looking around your blog too. Great blog - I love the individual photos on the sidebar and think inside the box (of CHOCOLATE!). Great Pink Post, I did read it first! Je parle francais un peu ... did I remember how to spell it? Did I get it? It's the last word I'm really uncertain of the spelling. I see where you went to Israel and what a blessing that must have been ... Passover and all. Awesome. Oh yes, I love your sister's blog title. You know,I'll not get very far on Pink Saturday if I linger like this. I can't imagine the pink pastry shop nor the other one that's a coffee shop (?). Wow. Cool selections and great Pink post. Happy Pink Saturday! Thanks or having stopped by my place! Jenn

Entertaining Women said...

Well, we are both just quite continental, aren't we! Lafayette is magical, indeed. Have you been to the older department store, la Samaritaine (If I remember the spelling correctly...not to shop necessarily...but to go to the open air roof top cafe for croissants and a drink. Has to be the best 360 degree view in Paris. if you've been, then you already know...if you haven't been, don't miss it! Great opportunity for amazing panorama photography. Next week I'll share a bit of Sorrento and the amazing Hotel Belle Vue Syrene...oh my heavens! Cherry Kay

Sue said...

Beautiful images. Have a wonderful time in Italy and Paris! Travel safely and eat a croissant for me:) My husband and I will be in Yosemite this weekend-hiking to Half-dome(if the cables are up) or to Yosemite falls(if the cables aren't up).
Take care. Can't wait to hear about your trip!
