Cleo And Coco In Paris

Introducing my lovely friends, Cleo and Coco. Californian Cleo, who like me loves stripes, as you can see, just spent a few extraordinary weeks in Paris with her doll Coco - and her mum Stephanie, a wonderful pro photographer. Here are some of Cleo and Coco's favorite places in Paris:
The Tuileries Fair
The Trocadéro merry-go-round
Petit Bateau, where she chose the denim mini she's wearing on these pictures
CSAO, 9 rue Elzévir, the colorful African arts and crafts store

Thanks for your comments on my blog. You live in a lovely city. I have been to Paris 3 times but it seems so long ago the last time I visited and I am yet to see Versailles so I would love to return some day. Looks like you showed Cleo and Coco a great time while they were on vacation.

ahhhh...
my favorite places, too:
The Tuileries
and the old men feeding birds
by the fountain,
The Trocadéro
and the sight of the Eiffel
across the river...

:-)

lucky girl
to grow
and store such memories
while wearing a mini...

oh,
wait,

that was me,too.

well, the mini in Paris
was YEARS ago,
but
the rest,

revisited
from time-to-time.

I love the close relationship between Cleo and Coco. Cleo is adorable.

The photo blog was wonderful, too! Love the pig in front of the refridgerator; and an almost transparen bw flag at sunset; some beauties!
Thanks,

Sarah said...

Thank you for your encouraging words on my beret, I hope the finished item will live up to the wonderful colour.

It has been lovely to come and visit with you awhile, your blog is a lovely place and it makes me wish I had a trip to Paris planned

Esti said...

Stripes, yes!!

Mary-Laure said...

I'm happy so many of you like Stephanie's bright, happy and whimsical work. I love it too.

LISS - when I visit a place I like, I always stay away from one major landmark, saving it for a later trip..

SOMEPINKFLOWERS - hmmmm, I'd love to hear more about your mini in Paris. Sounds like you had an unforgettable time.

ALISON - me too! Maybe the reason why I love stripes is because my grandpa was a pilot in the Uruguayan Navy.

SARAH - I'm eager to see your beret once it's done. it's going to be lovely I am sure!
