Fleurs de Paris

Last weekend the SP & I spent 24 wonderful hours in Paris.
We drove up to visit the Version Scrap Expo, which was being held at the Parc Floral, Vincennes.

Later we checked into the Hotel Daumesnil located close to the Chateau de Vincennes.

This beautiful florists shop was on the opposite corner to the Chateau, just across the road from the Hotel.

Sharing all these beautiful flowers with
 Liz @ Rose Vignettes for Fresh Cut Friday
Beverly @ How Sweet The Sound for Pink Saturday.
I'm sure they'd both be happy to see you if you called in too!


  1. Why is it that the thought of a scrapbook convention or crafting conference in Vincennes is so much more attractive than one in the industrial area of suburban Vancouver??? Lucky you!
    I remember a wonderful Paris weekend in a hotel on a corner, overlooking the old Chateau at Vincennes. *sigh*

  2. Maggie, glad you and SP had a fun time in Paris. I'm just a wee bit envious. LOL
    Thanks for sharing all the flowers! You make my heart sing!
    All the best to you and the SP, Mr. Ben, and Fleur for a delightful Easter weekend. ~ Love, Sarah, the chef, and Sadie.

  3. Oh wow I want to go to Paris too. Have to convince my husband tho. :))
    Happy Easter Maggie.)

  4. Oh Maggie,
    It's like a DREAM! It would be so romantic to be so close to such an incredible city! Until I get there "I will rely on you to keep these posts coming"!!!
    Happy Easter to you and yours,
    Big Hugs,

  5. What a wonderful getaway, Maggie. Scrapbooking, gorgeous flowers, and Paris - le sigh.

  6. A little getaway to Paris sounds really nice! And the flowers are lovely! :-)

  7. Oh it looks so beautiful with all those flowers. It must be nice to live so close to Paris; I lived in Brussels for two years and loved to take the train to Paris just for a few days... :-)

  8. Maggie~ What a THRILL this would be for in Paris! Beautiful~ I hope your visit was as wonderful as the bouquets were fragrant! Happy Easter :)

  9. Paris was on my list of places to visit as soon as we won last weeks major lottery! It was sad we didnt win so now Paris has to wait! Your post is beautiful. I wish we had lovely flower markets around our corner..
    Happy Easter,

    C'est toujours un plaisir d'y faire de belles visites.
