Galeries Lafayette, PARIS.

This department store ...Galeries Lafayette" has to be one of the most beautiful buildings I have ever seen. I was in awe when I walked inside...not your typical department store.

We visited this store in Paris while my husband, daughter and I were on vacation and were on our way to Turkey but stopped for a week in Paris. The stained glass dome roof in the middle of the store was amazing...it was a cloudy day but I can imagine if it was sunny how the gorgeous colours would come through.
It had balconies going around the whole store........with ornate iron work. Every groove on the balconies had a little display of merchandise......Everything in the store was very expensive and I could see they really hiked the prices up. 
It was very crowded there and I think more people were snapping away at photos then they were shopping.....especially at the gorgeous stained glass dome on the roof.

 No details were spared in the store.

 Absolutely gorgeous stained glass work on the windows at the turn of the century.

 We saw more people with their heads up and taking photos then shopping.....

Pennsylvania Blue Skies.

Last week after being in Europe for 6 weeks we went to Pennsylvania for a few days......here are some of the gorgeous scenic routes we took. The skies are a beautiful BLUE.
I come from a place where everything is flat...so I was kind of freaking out when we had to drive along the edges and were so high up.
