Architecture on Rue de Grenelle


This is a different vitrine de noël display with its elegant lines and exquisite miniatures. I do wish I knew something about this detailed model found in the window of a Rue de Grenelle bookstore in the 7ième arr.


I love how the glass bubbles delicately frame the scene

Certainly very unique! It's quite charming though isn't it. I like those bubbles too. Or are they baubles?

This is a crib, typical from the countries or eastern Europe, I'd say it comes from Poland.English people make xmas villages, in Provence we make the "crèche" with "santons", that's what they make in those countries.

This is soooo magical, a little world...I wish I could go there, walk inside that fantastic house, look out through the windows, sit by a fireplace, hear someone play the piano in a distant room...

Wishing you a warm and happy christmas dear Genie, I´m so happy to have found you!

Wow! That is exquisite. And intricate. It probably took forever to make!

Joyeaux Noel, Genie!

Beyond beautiful! And thanks to Malyss (I was thinking Russian). So glad you decided to do this blog, Genie—it's a treat every day!

Hi Genie, Just passing by and wanted to wish you a very happy Christmas and New Year and thank you for supporting my blog over the past year. Here’s hoping we both have lots of great pix to publish in 2011.
