Romantic Paris, 1815-1848

For a couple of more weeks, the Petit Palais is showcasing more than 600 pieces that represent the romantic years of Paris, from the fall of Napoleon to the revolution of 1848.

Here are several of the pieces that I enjoyed during my visit.

If you have the opportunity to visit the exhibit, I recommend that you take it. Romantic Paris, 1815-1848 runs until September 15th.

Bonne journée!

      1. Ireland immediately comes to mind. My Grandfather was born there and when I visited several years ago I felt like it was “my second home”. I even cried on the last day as we headed for the airport.

      2. Wow!!! So powerful! ❤ It's so easy to forget where we've come from, our heritage – when this world moves so fast. I hadn't really, ever at all, given my ancestry much room in my busy brain. But a recent outing to Grand Pre (where the French first settled in Nova Scotia) to visit the the national museum, your blog reminding me of Paris, and this conversation has sparked an interest… Thank you Marla! ❤

      3. Being on the other side of the country, I have always dreamed of making it to Eastern Canada. I’m holding off for now though, as I’m worried I’ll refuse to leave and never come back to Vancouver. Lucky girl! 💕

      4. Hey!!!! My husband is from Campbell River, Vancouver Island! Funny how grass is always greener on the other side….I’ve been to Vancouver Island and would move there in a heartbeat because it has everything!! Pacific ocean, whales, mountains, eagles, and a unmistakable healing energy!!!!! How about we trade lives for a year!!! 🙂 🙂 🙂
