Katie 's here!

Look who is coming down the street from the St. Michael metro station!

After a quick tour of the neighborhood and picking up a baguette sandwich to eat in the apartment, followed by a nap, she is good to go!

We are off on a stroll through the grounds of Le Louvre.

Then we made a quick stop at the Astier de Villatte on rue St. Honore for a look at their lovely white china.

The beautiful plates and platters are made with Paris black sand and fired with a special glaze that leaves flecks of the sand apparent on all their distinctive porcelain pieces.

A pot full of jonquils echoes the beautiful spring day.

On to the Palais Royal and some chocolate chaud.

Back to the apartment for a gouter d'fromage.

  What ho!  reading glasses??? 

A grand and wonderful gift for me, for all these years!
