Spring Break - Parisian Escape
After this long cold winter, I have a hankering for an escape to some place warm and tropical. Although, before I lived in Paris, it used to be my escape. Now that I live here, I still admire this great city with it's rich history and breathtaking architecture. Often, I don't have the chance for a tropical escape, so I often have to settle for a minibreak closer to home.
Luckily, Paris is so dense and has a wonderful transit system that it is easy to get lost on some of the old rues that have been here since the Romans. Even though I live here, I still get lost from time to time. One of my favorite places to get lost is down near the Marais. It is chock full of little galleries and boutiques that you just wouldn't find unless you were lost. When I make a new discovery, I have a little black book that I write it in. From time to time, I will share with all of you some of those little discoveries. If anyone is coming to Paris and needs a few suggestions, I am happy to share my favorite haunts with you.
The treasury Parisian Escape was made by a fellow Etsian, Sara Gilmore of Phdstressrelief. She is an incredible artist who makes amazing things out of fibers. She makes everything from cat toys to jewelry. I'm in love with the sheep already and can't wait to see what new creations she will come up with this Spring.
