Once again I am so ready for the weekend, and I know I’m not alone. My thoughts have been with family, friends, and fellow Texans in general this week, some who have been without power, water, and/or food because of the winter storm. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France includes a Louvre x Casetify collaboration, a look at a snowy Versailles, the first pink blooms in Paris and more!
I’m very excited about this edition of Weekend Links. There are lots of interesting articles, so many that it’s nearly impossible for me to pick favorites. Standouts include a tribute to Julia Child and her favorite Paris restaurant, an absolutely stunning Parisian mansion decorated by Jacques Grange, how to view the Bayeux Tapestry virtually, a French nun celebrating her 117th birthday with red wine, and the story of a black female Champagne producer. I hope you enjoy Weekend Links Week Seven and have a great weekend!
Last week I wrote that it felt like spring was just around the corner. This week it’s been very cold and it snowed, pretty typical. While it was so pretty I’m ready for it to warm up a bit. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features a gorgeous flower “wall” display at the market, a great Italian café, Valentine’s Day at Monoprix and more!
The temperatures dropped pretty significantly over the weekend in Paris. From Sunday on I’ve noticed the tiniest bit of snow each day, even though it wasn’t sticking. Yesterday I was very surprised to come out of the Métro to see the snow falling in Montmartre. Even though it barely stuck, it was pretty to watch. Overnight even more snow fell so we woke up to Paris covered in a blanket of white.
Happy Weekend to all! I’m excited to be spending it with Dalton again – exploring during the day and making sure to be home before the 6PM curfew. As of last Friday there are a few new restrictions in France, which I included a few articles on. Other favorites include photos from a Parisian City Hall wedding, details on the Eiffel Tower’s upcoming makeover, stunning photos of the Chanel-designed costumes for the Paris Opera Ballet’s opening gala and more.
