French Kiss

Passion for Paris


Cafe rouge medium snap purse


I love Paris and anything that is French. The architecture, the streets, the cobblestones, the impeccably designed store windows. The cheese, the coffee and bread I could eat all day every day. Don’t even get me started about dessert. I could sit and watch the colors, sights and sounds for a lifetime.

The handsome French men, the put-together women. The romance. The art. Paris is a city that reeks of Life and Style. Sometimes I run into people who have been there and really didn’t care for it. “I can’t believe we were in the same city!”, I’ll say. To me being somewhere so old and historically well-preserved is fascinating in and of itself.

What are you waiting for? Just go. Here are a few objects you can find in the U.S. that remind me of that great city. If you click on the pictures, it will take you to the websites that offer them.
