Rue Cler

griff and i took 
some time away from 
unpacking boxes yesterday
and walked around our 
new neighborhood.
it was such a beautiful day 
here in the city.

we walked across
the champs de mars
to rue cler..
a favorite street of mine.
we stopped for a 
chocolate chaud,
cafe creme
and a nutella crepe.

the shops and cafe's are getting
ready for christmas.
it's so pretty lit up at night.

this little specialty food shop
was  beautiful.

just look at those panettone 
hanging from the ceiling!!

i couldn't decide what to get!

flowers and greenery 

and of course i had to 
get a picture of these 
gorgeous chippy blue 
tolix chairs.

still pinching myself.


  1. Very familiar with your new neighborhood.....especially Rue Cler! We always enjoy eating at Cafe Du Marche. I 'd be pinching myself too,

  2. I'm pinching myself for you!
    Did you get a pannetone? It makes great bread pudding and french toast!

  3. why can't everyday life, my plain old american rue, be this beautiful?

    {those little christmas trees look like they are flocked.}

  4. p.s. maybe the best tolix chairs i've seen.
    i thought i wanted steel, but now i want chippy rue blue.

  5. Ah, my favorite Paris street. I have a framed photo of the kids walking down that sweet street. Thanks for another peek! I'm just a wee bit jealous!

  6. And here you are, Rue Cler, in Rick Steves' territory :-) My guess is you will get to meet a lot of Americans around the 'hood, and that will come in handy when you get homesick! :-) Congrats on the new "maison parisienne…" Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

  7. Speechless, dear Pam.
    I love viewing Paris through the eyes and heart of an American girl.
    ...ahhhh the Panettone!
    (Sounds like I am no longer speechless!)

  8. Oh are one lucky girl!!! I am really enjoying your blog and instagram! Thank you for the chance to share your life vicariously! xoxo

  9. Hi. So I'm thinking you might need to change the name to views from my Parisian balcony. Wowza!

  10. I returned home from Paris just prior to Christmas , after spending six weeks there. We walked this street several brings back so many wonderful images....Paris is sooooo beautiful, but especially at Christmas!!
