Reminiscing - The Cover of Issue 1

After a delightful chat with Yvonne at Stone Gable Blog, we could not help but talk about the first cover of the very first issue of Belle Inspiration. It was September 2010... can it really be that long? We'll soon be celebrating our 5th anniversary of celebrating la joie de vivre!

Yvonne was kind enough to write and photograph the cover story for that first issue.

Paris Flea Markets

If you love flea markets then you need to experience one in France. Our favorite one in Paris is the Marché aux Puces de Clignancourt. A sprawling market unlike anything you've experienced in the US. 14 different marchés that have something for everyone and in every budget.

You can wander for days and still not see everything, so Paris Travel Groupe has created a special private market tour to streamline the experience and ensure a memorable time with a local insider by maximizing your time by zeroing in on exactly what you're looking for, help with negotiation, French language help, and shipping introductions if you need to ship those larger items home.

Paris Markets - Shopping Antiques in Passy

So much to see and do in the markets and brocantes of Paris. Here's a peek in a lovely little antique boutique in the Passy area (16th arrondissement of Paris).

The delicate colors of a miniature, the golden glow of the gilt, the alabaster lady. Each piece is unique in its own way but put it all together in one place and it is a treat to all five senses!!

The Next Issue of Belle Inspiration is Almost Ready!

Finishing final details of the upcoming issue of Belle Inspiration - Nina's Paris is our cover story. We think Nina's the THE best Salon de The in Paris!

We also visit Doni Belau of Girls' Guide to Paris as she settles into her lovely Paris apartment. Then a quick stop to the Palais Garnier to learn about their new line of shoes!
