Cocktails, Anyone? In the City of Lights?

Every time I see this amazing piece of architecture it takes my breath away.
What is equally amazing is the prospect of meeting other bloggers, designers, authors and people of this genre here. Jackie Von Tobel and I are organizing a meet and greet in this awesome city and would love it if you are so inclined to join us in Le Marais, in the 4th Arrondisement, Paris, France, during Maison et Object.
Let us know if you would like to join us for cocktails. or an aperitif, in the early evening
in a fabulous new Hotel in the 4th to be revealed......( we still are determining how many of you are coming, and it will be FUN!) Email me at if you would like to join us. A Bientot!


  1. First things first - I can't afford to go to Paris unless you send someone to buy my house!! So, have a wonderful time and bring back loads of goodies for the shop! Now, about your comment - you are so funny! I am glad we met because I can just see and hear you telling me...well, asking me, "Ann, what are you thinking???!!!" The thing is, I am not in love with this house, but I keep trying to be. I think I am just so anxious to decorate and I want to be in my next house, but meanwhile the creative juices start flowing and I can't help myself! Besides, it is so much fun to post about my ideas and read the comments I get!!

  2. Maryanne,

    Oh how I wish I could be there! Years ago, I lived not too far away, and would have gladly joined you for cocktails. One day, you'll just have to come out West on a buying trip, and then we'll have that cocktail.

    Bonne chance,


  3. You are too kind. Sometimes my taste can be a little off beat, so thank you for the vote of confidence. xo Ann

  4. Oh goodness I wish I could come! The only time I've been to Paris (so far) was to catch a connecting flight to India. I did see the Eiffle Tower from my plane window. It was about an inch tall, but I got a picture of it! I look forward to the day I can stand beneath her and bask in awe!

    Happy Thursday,

  5. Hi Maryanne, I would love to join all of you, but you know I live soooo far away. What a great gathering you´ll have!!!
    Wishing you and family a very happy and blessed 2010, and a wonderful gathering.
    Muchos cariños,
    María Cecilia

  6. Have fun and enjoy. I can't wait to hear all about it.

  7. are you going to meet up with Jackie? I'm so jealous!!!

  8. Thank you for reading my blog. i am trying to meet with you in Paris but will only be there for thursday and friday through Sat. morning. If i can't meet in Paris (I work long hours till 7pm at the shows) perhaps we could meet for coffee at Dcenes d'Interieurs or other....

  9. I am sorry I am a little late Maryanne, but just want to wish you and yours a wonderful 2010.
    I would so love, to meet you in Paris, my favourite City in the world!
    May you have the most fabulous time and would love to hear and see photos, of your trip.
