Windows to the soul....















....if the eyes are the window to the soul....then surely windows are the eyes to the soul of a house....? I am guessing these houses have beautiful souls.....!

For those of you that would like to visit Paris, but don't want to endure the jet-lag, you can visit from the comfort of your own home by clicking onto: http://paris-26-gigapixels.com/ ENJOY X

Gorgeous windows. I do love the wrought iron detail and the window boxes. So much history in those windows - so many interesting stories:).
Thanks for letting us feature you this week on the Decorating Forum:)

I live 15 km from Paris and my job is in Paris. Each day I see the Basilique du Sacré coeur from the train. I like the way you take photographs.
thank you for the link,it's an unusual way to see the town.
Bonne journée

I love windows.
I like to imagine what it hides ... Often, walking down the street at night in a strange city, I stop to look at a window from which a soft light from behind a curtain, and I hope with all my heart, there are two lovers or a mother cradling a child, behind ...

Oh I just love the windows and the wrought iron. It is like a free flower show. Even in cooler weather the window boxes are pretty. I ordered the book Hidden in Paris can't wait to read it.

Marie said...

Wow, it's always a pleasure to discover your beautiful pictures from Paris. This small "gardens" on the balcon and windows have always something of magical. And thanks for the great link.
Have a nice day,
Marie
