Hi Dianne,

We did not get to visit this quaint restaurant in Montmartre as there was so many to dine in.
I have seen the cute illustrations of this artist before and isn't it neat that you saw the restaurant that was named after Francisque Poulbot.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend

There is something so whimsical about Poulbot’s artwork. It is nice to think there is a little restaurant named for him and most likely is filled with his prints. Such a nice post so full of color. Very romantic spot.

Oh my god. It looks so nice. I've been to France i my summerholiday for the last 7 years. And I just love the country and everything. I come from Denmark, but I'm thinking about settle down in France, when I've finished school. And with these pictures I just wanted it a little more. Are you from France, and if where actually?
I love you blog! Wauw.
