Paris Pics for Thursday 9/22

Posting on social media sites keeps me too busy to write a proper blog post....so please forgive me.

Today, we visited the beautiful Musee Nissim de Camondo, one of my favorite small museums in Paris.


A gorgeous Beaux Arts mansion located in the 8th arrondissement, once owned by a Turkish Jewish merchant family at the turn of the century.

Monsieur Camondo was a collector of antiquities and decorative arts. A feast for my eyes.


The kitchen with its chef's office and staff dining room is reminiscent of Downton Abbey!


I would happily cook in this kitchen all day. That stove is 10 feet long and all cast iron....and who is polishing those copper pots?
Not moi!


I had the best crock of onion soup gratin today, if anyone cares......at a nice brasserie in the 8eme.


Now it's time for a snack.....and I will write again tomorrow.

As always, if you would like to follow our trip, please follow me on facebook or instagram where you can get the whole shebang!
