La Tour d'Argent - les lumières

La Tour d'Argent

Although I have not dined at La Tour d'Argent 
and would love to explore their wine list
one can enjoy the aesthetics of the wrought iron lamp posts
and the Guimard awning over the entrance door.

diptyque - parfumerie


This is a charming shop on boulevard Saint-Germain
specializing in perfumes and also scents for
the home.  Even if you already have a favorite there
are scents which are not available elsewhere.

Plan a visit to the original diptype store.
This small shop is big on friendly customer service and
I have always been well-received on my visits.

Les vitrines de jouets - CDP Theme Day

Looking out of a store window at the winter
landscape, the tin toys resemble paper silhouettes 
against a palette of neutrals.

The theme for the City Daily Photo Bloggers
on this first day of March:  A photo that is in color
but appears almost as a black and white shot.
