Franco Fridays: Paintings and Macaroons

I just had a few more pictures from the inside of Versailles to share before walking out into the gardens.

 I love this gorgeous French door...truly, a French one.

I got really excited when I saw thousands of tulips out the window.

This gallery of paintings was magnificent.  It boggles my mind to think of how long paintings of this size require to create them.

  Cedric and I had a friendly photography competition going on...he probably won.
He captures great perspective.

Remember the Henry IV painting I shared a few weeks ago?  That had us dying of laughter?

We found this guy again dressed with a bit more dignity, and KJ tried to recreate his pose here.

I think his look is kind of impossible to recreate without the shorts and the sword...and Hydra.

We found a painting of the cooperation between George Washington and French troops led by Comte de Rochambeau at Yorktown.  We wanted to illustrate the continued cooperation between the United States and France.  

Who is Audrey talking to on the phone while at Versailles??
At the end of our tour I was feeling parched, so we sought out the tea room.  The ease with which KJ now shells out any currency for bottled water and Diet Coke is evidence of his growing love and sanctification.  Of course, I couldn't stop with just a bottled water when I saw these.

They were very good.


  1. Lynn! These pictures . . . above, below, all around! I am ALWAYS amazed at the beauty you capture so beautifully :) Seriously. As I've said before, you are truly an artist. I miss you LOADS!!

    1. You make me blush. But thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words. Miss you, too, and looking forward to time together!
