Paris, Galleries Lafayette

 I have long been fascinated by the tradition of the Galleries Lafayette Christmas tree which you can read about here -

This year's tree was, i think, particularly spectacular.

"This year, the theme for the Christmas windows is the epic story of a little girl and a magic paintbrush, taking viewers on a journey to an imaginary land imagined by fashion designer Charles de Vilmorin. The talented teams from Galeries Lafayette have created the window displays along Haussmann Boulevard, telling the tale of the wonderful characters the girl and her paintbrush meet in their adventures. The tree, which has been a tradition since 1976, adorns the centre of the iconic and spectacular dome and is a sight to behold, illuminating the store with festive cheer."

read the whole story here -

First, the windows -

Seeing this magical tree was a dream come true.
I am a happy girl.

And the view from the Cafe

More to come!

Stay tuned . . .

Life is Good
