After her post-op doctor's appointment, Jordana, the smiling birhday girl - who now has near-perfect vision - and her boyfriend Keith pose for a photo at Concorde. It is Keith's first visit to Europe.
Walking along rue Cambon, I saw these frames and portraits leaning against the exterior of the Hemingway Bar at the Ritz. I thought maybe they had been thrown out, but Jordana said similar things were being loaded onto a van.
A clothed monkey, antique doll and silver candlelabra at an antiques shop on rue Cambon, Paris. As soon as I saw the porcelain doll's exquisite antique lace dress, I thought of Sandra Evertson and her remarkable collection of vintage dolls, with antique fabrics and trims. Sandra's first Bird Cage Couture doll recently flew to Paris, where she is adjusting happily to French life. Will post photos and more info soon.
Another view of the monkey and doll.
