Fantastic capture and I would love to do some shopping there -- well, assuming I fall heir to a fortune before the holidays! Hope your week is going well, Genie!

Hugs

I love how they always have something exquisite in the background as well as all the eye candy in the foreground. Total fabulousness!

Beautiful - It's just that I am not there seeing it first hand. And that really hurts. Merci!

The Lion in Winter, maybe?

Set during Christmas 1183 at Henry II of England's château in Chinon, Anjou, Angevin Empire, the play opens with the arrival of Henry's wife Eleanor of Aquitaine.

Fantastic shot, Genie.

Thank you so much!

très très joli, Genie. and yet, I wonder whether some little ones would not find this lion a bit too scary ?? I should go by and observe but have no trips planned in the near future;. on my next trip in January.. this will probably be gone (snik)

Wow. Wow. Wow. Lovely.

Quite a concept for Christmas! Have to admit it's beautiful though—thanks for sharing with those of us who didn't get to see these fab windows in person, Genie!
