Patrick and I recently spent a delightful week in Paris! The weather could not have been grayer and the sun hardly shined, but it didn’t matter — we had such a wonderful time. My dear sister-in-law was celebrating a “big” birthday and wanted nothing more then to have her family together for lunch at her favorite French restaurant, L’Ami Louis. Who could say no? We dashed in between the storms, visiting museums and stores and enjoying great meals. Paris is so beautiful. I found myself inspired at every turn. It could even just be the way an unusual door handle greets you as you enter a store. I particularly enjoyed the “needle and thread” at the D. Porthault linen store, and the chameleon crawling along the stylized branches leading into Guy Laroche.
