Les lanternes




In the Marché aux Fleurs I found this collection of lanterns
suspended from the greenhouse roof. 
I dreamed that I had the two in front for large candles on my Paris terrace. 

Un aperitif?

Sounds perfect to me!! These are terrific! I'd like at least one myself! Wonderful capture as always, mon amie! Hope you have a great week!

These would make perfect souvenirs to bring back with you, but how would they fit inside a suitcase? Nope. For Paris use only I guess. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

They look great! I prefer the more "extravagant" lanterns in the background ;-)

Hello Genie:
We think that you will need to get to them before we do!! These are all wonderful, and they look especially good displayed together in this way. We should have no difficulty placing any of them!

Wonderful! My parents have a large collection (not AS large as in this picture!) of vintage lanterns hanging in the roof of their glass-porch and some have electricity, some have fairylights in them and some have candles, it is divine in the evenings....

I'm immediately drawn to the red glow in the background.It would be interesting to see them all lit just as they are.

I would be dreaming about them too. Very nice!

Alexa said...

Excellent idea—an aperitif by lantern-light on your Paris terrace! Sigh. I think that will have to be a very large terrace to hold all of us, Genie.

Great idea!!! Alexa's right...you're going to need a huge terrace!!! Love the photo!!!

All I can say is "OOOH!" I see at least two pair I would like to snatch right out of the picture.

Elles sont magnifiques tes lanternes. Moi-aussi, je les adore. Passe un bel après-midi.
