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!

The nissim camomdo is one of my favorites too. I have a postcard of that stove on the front of my fridge.
