Sneak Peek, Paris

For the past 48 hours I’ve been on “Toe-Rest" (who knew a pinkie toe could be so ouchy?), held captive in the one place in the world I don’t mind being under Medical House Arrest, Avenue Mozart.

I thought I’d share with you my favorite little bits and bobs in my Paris apartment, the little treasures that keep me happy and homey away from home, especially when I'm stuck inside and the most beautiful city in the world lies outside...

Balls of roses in a bowl in my entry.

My brother gave me this painting in the late '80's when he started collecting
South American Art.
It now hangs in my living room.
Cinderella's Slipper.

A crystal tree for good energy.

One of my most prized possessions, a painting of my fathers'. It is so precious & beautiful, I wish I had more of his art. 

A gift for my daughter from our friend Scott D. on the occasion of her first trip to Paris,
at 3 months old!

Speaking of...My daughter is slowly converting her room into a groovy "tween-den", pink shag rug and all!

I found these prints at a beach shop in the South of France nestled under a pile of pareos and hats. I'm certain the owner never thought they'd sell. I love their simplicity.

Interior French doors, a modern statue and lots of light...

Surrounded by those I love.

Candy anyone?

A warm and inviting hallway (you should have seen it before the renovation!). 

An American Kitchen in Paris! You should have seen this before the renovation!

Melvin Sokolsky "bubble series", first published in Harpers Bazaar, 
hangs in my dining room.

More + art = happy!

Just a pretty powder room. 

I can look out my window and decide whether to take a cab or the metro....C'est facile!!

My son keeps his father's first teddy bear from his childhood.
Poor bear has a really big forehead!

Do it yourself art: pick a poem, print it out, frame it in sections and hang together. Voila...
Can you name the Poet?

Adding new art,  a bowl from my recent trip to Senegal. The women used the beads to make a musical beat by spinning and catching the bowl in their hands.

I can never get over the view from my bed!
Simply heaven
Time to squeeze the little toe that went wee wee wee all the way home into Valentino Gladiators for a night out.
Thanks for dropping by.
