Une couronne

How lovely this wreath would look on my front door, but I like the whole set including the box and the price tag. Crazy? Perhaps, but it just says "Paris" to me.

oh Genie, I agree with you..box and price tag included. it reminds me of a previous stay in Paris where we would pass a market everyday and I wished I could have some of the crates the fruit and veggies were delivered in daily..it had the most beautiful description and words on them..at night these empty boxes were all left out on the pavement and it was torture to walk past them!! xo Colette

Love it - and the bowl of paperwhites next to it. Bummer that this wont fit into our suitcases either!

Just found your lovely blog. Thanks for sharing Paris with those of us who only wish to go there. Can't wait to dive into more of your blog!
I'd be delighted if you followed me back.

That is so beautiful. I could see it on my door too. I really like the rich red berries on there. Have a wonderful weekend!

Ok for the wreath, and the box. Not for the tag! :))
And what about the jacynthes just beside?..they smell so good!!
Have a nice week-end!

I'm back from Italy and having a good time catching up here. This wreath is perfectly charming—and the price seems fair too. Guess you'll be seeing more of these in person soon, oui?

Such a seasonal joy, with or without the price tag and box.

Thanks for the delightful picture.

Dear Genie
Oh I want that wreath too!!!
Are you in Paris yet?
I've just been on Virginia's blog and hear your there or going soon.
Wishing you the "Best Christmas" in Paris - I wish I could be there this time of year again, it's just sooo special. I'm there with you in spirit dear Genie.
hugs

Colette -- This could even have been "your" market. I am astounded each December (at the same markets year to year) at how many different types of Christmas decorations they offer. My favorite are the little sapins for which the French pay dearly. Merci, mon amie!

Cezar -- Merci and God bless you and Leia aussi.

Holly -- Can't wait!

Tammy -- Merci, and I hope that you will visit often!

Randy -- I don't think we can find this type of wreath in the US or perhaps it is just my imagination. I love those red berries also!

Malyss -- Really I was just kidding about the price tag, but I would want it just for the handwriting and the "way of writing the number 1" Why is it that I am so taken by every little quirk and mannerism of the French? I don't know but I am just smitten!

Alexa -- Can't wait to hear about your trip to Italy. Yes, in just a few days I will be off to Paris!

Bear -- Merci, and I hope that you won't eat those berries...

Starman -- Did you bring one home from Paris?

Shane -- Please just steal away and come with us! I will be back long before Christmas but will cram in as much of the Paris experience as possible while I am there... Plus, I am already plotting my next trip.

Hee! I'm not sure I've ever seen a wreath like this in Paris. But maybe I never really looked! It is a very nice one. :)

Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving weekend. I need another weekend to recover.

It doesn't say Paris to me, but it IS beautiful!!!
