The country in Paris

Paris is a busy town, but there are some "Heaven of peace " where it's nice to live.
The vineyards of  MONTMARTRE.
The stairs  , the stairs  again and again...
My old camera did not work propely, but it made a quite interesting mosaic, did'nt it?
I took this picture, because the restaurant is  called "La mère Catherine" and is a typical french restaurant!
The hidden places of Montmartre.
At  the lower part of Montmartre, the streets are full of fabric shops. Wool, silk...this is "Le marché saint Pierre" and also notions  stores,buttons, ribbons...All you need to sew. I love the embroided silk best!

Hello Catherine,
What a treat it is to visit your blog. I will definitely be back often to visit. The photos of Paris are so beautiful and it is my dream someday to explore France and England. I really enjoyed your post about B. Potter, she is one of my favorites. We also share a common interest in pastel drawing. I haven't done much with my pastels since college, but truly love working with that medium.
Thanks for stopping my my blog and leaving a comment. Have a beautiful day.

Hello Catherine!
Oh how I love've taken such wonderful pictures! Maybe one day we will have lunch at La Mere Catherine if my sister and I get over to visit you. I love sister and I had fun looking in some of the stores on the narrow streets there our first night in Paris. Thanks for bringing back those special memories for me. Have a wonderful evening...Maura :)

Thank you for the beautiful fotos. I love Paris, too. And now - looking at your pictures - I can dream and remember interesting days in Paris some years ago.
Have a wonderful week.
