Paris Christmas Windows

Here are a few photos of windows I’ve managed to get in the last couple of days. It’s really cold here right now and I’m not as enthusiastic to get out with my camera as usual.

I liked this red tree. I think its a candle.

Silver stag head in the snow-rather stunning.

I wouldn’t mind having this wreath on my door but I already have one.

I really like these ornaments with the Eiffel Tower on one and the Arc de Triumph on the other but if you look closely you will see on the price tag that they cost 75 Euros each-so I passed.

On another note, I want to report that the Christmas tree that we bought while it looks lovely has absolutely no smell-nada, zilch, rien. Can you believe it?

  1. I, for one, am delighted you braved the cold and took these beautiful photos. 75 Euros? I think not!

    I think it should be illegal to sell “real” Christmas trees that do not have the scent. That just is NOT right!

  2. Ohhh, sad. The best thing about a real tree is the smell — one year I think we had one that didn’t smell very pine-y either. I recommend that you get a pine-scented candle to burn, or maybe pine incense?

    Are the ornaments hand-painted? They look like it. That would explain the price.

  3. Oh Linda, it is a poser…how can an evergreen tree have no scent? I give up. But the even more difficult question, is how did you find a living tree for 15 euros in Paris??? That is really something. I suppose to get the smell, you have to pay more. Still…

    I’m glad you found some decorations at Monoprix. I used to also find the cutest little things at Schlecker…do they have those in Paris?

    Enjoy the holidays!

    Meilleurs voeux!!

  4. Thank you so much for the beautiful photos you share! My 13-year old daughter and I will be visiting London & Paris Spring ’08 on a class trip and your website fills us both with anticipation and excitement! Have a wonderful Christmas! Looking forward to Paris in the Spring!
