Dancing at Napoleon's

Napoleon's Grand Salon

Dear Erin, you asked where we would put our teacups. I'm going to suggest we move over to the cocktail tables. Before the Hollywood pizazz dance.

I delight to take a turn around the red velvet, the coffee urn, the cocktail tables and the potted palms.
The conversation and company is always so delightful in this "salon", L.L.

That is a fantastic photograph of an obviously fantastic place. Never been. Hope to some day.

What a grand place to dance! I fear I would stumble and fumble about rather than lightly dancing about. I would probably end up being the wall flower hiding in the dark shadowy folds of drapes. Thanks for sharing the photograph!

LL...where would I be without you? Your Random Acts bless me.

And I'm going to fall asleep dreaming tonight of sitting in that salon with my Jesus-blogging sisters, sharing tea in china cups and laughing with open hearts 'till the wee small hours.

Nancy... aren't they great?

Erin... how nice to think of this place having a few of those fancy things (and not just nachos, which I'm still finding under the couch covers.

Gwen & Kim (are you the same person? : )... Yes, that was probably our favorite section of the Louvre. Really amazing.

Sojourner... the dance was Erin's idea. She's probably better at it than I'd be too, what with all the potted plants getting in the way of the veggie trays.

Erica... what a sweet sentiment. I'm glad you feel blessed. What's your favorite tea? :)

I tried to send a reply to question, but I don't think it worked. It's The Red Rooster Market and Deli. It's wonderful!

What a beautiful room. Oh, how I'd love to see it in person.
