More Paris......

Hi all,
I wanted to show you some of the ceiling art from the Louvre, and let me tell you that these
photos do not do them justice! I stood in awe when I saw these in person!
The exquisite detail and coloring is magnificent.
I also wanted you to see some of the stained glass from a couple of the churches we went to.
St. Chapelle and the Notre Dame.
I never even knew St. Chapelle existed until the first time I went to Paris with my hubby and someone we were having a conversation with asked us if we had gone to St. Chapelle yet and we asked where it was. The person who told us about it said it was their most favorite place in Paris and I think I might agree with them.
It is a stunning site to see all the stained glass windows in the upper room of the church. Each window represents all the books of the bible and the rosette window just boggled our eyes and minds.
Another amazing fact is that not one pane was damaged during the war!
So enjoy and be inspired.

talk to you soon,
deborah
