This one is a one of a kind dress by Bonnie Heart Clyde, a local designer in Portland. It' a vintage linen piece with an embroidered tree-woman and flowers.

The same day we took in the sights of 'Amelie' we went to the Picasso museum. No photos are allowed inside but outside there are some really creative photo opps. Enjoy! I think this is officially the last Paris post! I've enjoyed doing these so much. I hope it's made your heart smile too.

We spent some time at a beautiful spot where some shots from the movie 'Amelie' was shot in Paris. Here are a few:

This shop (right down the street from the previously mentioned vegan restaurant) had handmade art from Portland! So cute to find it in Paris. And more photos of cuteness…

A place that touches me and moves me so deeply. A place where I left with a headache because I cried quiet tears as I walked through even though I wanted to openly cry: my soul wanted to cry loudly. I believe that the sorrows that have been shared, the loved ones prayed for, the deaths, the candles that have been lit to remember are so heavy here. Blessings on this special place, Notre Dame. I took the exterior photos and husband took the interiors.

The first time we tried to go to the Louvre it was a free day and the line wrapped around the pyramid and way out into the square. Insane amounts of people, we almost got pick pocketed by a very clever, charming, dirty and disgusting guy, and then we got out of there fast. So here are some photos from this amazing place. Just please, don't go in the summer time on a free day. Just don't.

7-6-2009 2-58-48 AM_1626 by waxpancake.
Outside, of course.

Cameras are not allowed inside. Silly Euro Disney rules!

Right now we're back on the east coast, hanging out in Brooklyn, New York for some soul searching fun. Wish us luck and love please!
