....petites tresors....!








This amazing building is situated on Avenue Van Dyck, (which happens to be an extension of one of the avenues that radiates from the Arc de Triomphe). It is also situated on the very edge of the beautiful Parc de Monceau. It is a breath-takingly beautiful building with so many wonderful details. Even the flower beds were manicured to perfection! I have no idea what the building is (public...? private...?) but I do know it was an absolute treasure to find.
I regard this as one of my 'petite tresors'.....one of those amazing finds along the way that you remember fondly once you have returned home.....'the small treasures of life'.

En ocasiones no tenemos consciencia de lo que tenemos cerca, por la costumbre de verlo.
Realmente es un edificio muy hermoso.
un abrazo

In occasions we do not have conscience of what we have nearby, for the custom of seeing it.
Really it is a very beautiful building.
An embrace

With my husband who is an architect I learn to look a different way to many buildings.

In France, Italy or in our own country, just love it!!
