La boutique des Anges, Paris, France

Hi there,

the same day as I visited le Sacre Coeur, Montmartre and the quartier Pigalle with the Moulin Rouge; I went through the streets just discovering things as I went along. I must have been lucky. I found a little boutique selling just about anything you can think (and more) about angels. Statues, medals, earrings, postal cards, books posters … Even a little perfume called “the perfume of angels” … Name it and they have it. Here is a picture of the frontside of the boutique. I waited for about 10 minutes but there were always people coming in and out. Finally due to the fact that it was very cold and that I longed for a hot beverage, I took the picture you see below. I just blurred the people. I purchased some stuff inside. I asked if I could take a picture inside of the boutique; but the lady (very polite, smiling) was clearly embarrassed. She said they authorized one picture only. And she probably said that because I purchased many oracle decks about angels. So I just said ok then, and took no picture of the inside. (I will make another post about the decks I have purchased there).


At the end of the street, as I was seeking for a place to drink a huge hot coffee, I found out a very famous place again in Paris. La librairie des Abbesses. here is an article about it (in French though). Marie-Rose Guarniéri is the owner of the place and is also responsible for the Prix Wepler which is given every year in the Brasserie of the same name, place Clichy. She was in the shop as I entered to have a look; discussing with her staff about how to place certain books. I just can’t help entering places where you find books. Here I loved how the wooden floor was making noise under my boots as I was perusing the many novel’s titles within the bookshop. Aaaah, the smell of books.


I then took the metro and went to some more adventure within the city. I did a draw (with the lenormand cards) for the next part of my trip which will probably be the subject of the next post. Oh and I just love the design of those metro’s entrance. This is what I love about Paris, it is such a treat to the eyes. You just feel like humming along as you walk in the street, just as if you are in a movie or something.

Daily reading N°2 about Paris, France

HI there,

this is the second daily drawing about my little trip to Paris. Prior to the drawing, I already knew where I was going. So the house here should not be read as my home place, or the hotel room … because I definitely didn’t stay in !

the house 04the heart 24the anchor 35the whip 11the child 13

the house, the heart, the anchor, the whip, the child.

Again, I propose this as a little exercise to be edited later on with the answer.
What about that second day in Paris ? What do you think ?


*edited to add*

This is where I went in the morning : the Moulin Rouge … Quite mythical right ? just next to my hotel, it was a small walk.


The Moulin Rouge really well in the cards through the house+heart+anchor

see how the anchor evokes the 4 sides of the windmill ?
also the House and the Heart could evoke the Sacre Coeur, but … I guess the cross would have been there … the Whip is more like showing the “stimulating” aspect of this place of the city : the Moulin Rouge, Folies Pigalle, and the Erotic museum …




This is the Sacre Coeur : I went in and it is quite breathtaking. Pictures are not allowed inside though (which I understand). I bought some stuff such as a statue of the Virgin Mary for my father who is ill and so, she will protect him. At the top of the stair, you have one of the most beautiful sight !


this is the Manege just in front of the Sacre Coeur before you take the steps up.


and a mime just as you are about to take the steps heading to the Sacre Coeur. I took so many pictures of the place !


This is Montmartre with la Butte Montmartre as it is called, with painters …

I have had the typical lunch there chez Eugene : a Fish Soup ! Of course, it is filled with tourist, but still I loved it ! There are so many things to see there … I loved the atmosphere of it …


voila, see you for the next reading still about my little city trip to Paris

Daily reading N°1 about my trip in Paris, France

I am back from Paris, France and it has been wonderful. Cold weather but wonderful. I actually wished I could stay longer … I have made daily readings with my Lenormand cards. I don’t make daily readings usually. But here I just knew it would be interesting because I was taking a more than welcomed break from the routine. Thus the informations shown by the cards would be more interesting. I came to Paris on Friday end of the afternoon. My intention was to go out for the whole evening of course. Here are the cards :

the rider 01the birds 12the garden (20)the book 26the fish 34

the rider, the birds, the garden, the book, the fish

I am in a playful mode so I will update the post later on and keep the suspense a little bit … But what would be your take on this draw ? What happened that evening ? It would be interesting to use this draw as a sort of exercise 😀


*Edited to Add*

well you were close ! And this was so much fun : I think I will post the other daily draws I’ve been doing the same way. It is interesting to see your comments. Thank you so much for that.

The Rider was there I guess to point out the fact that I was about to go out and about … My direction was the Champs Elysees ! So quite a lot of people …. the Christmas lightning was just wonderful : it was eerie. I walked the Champs up and down, looking at the windows, and enjoying the surrounding of people. I actually went inside the Virgin Megastore. There was a huge screen, displaying a live concert. Funnily enough, as I was going around the store; I thought ; the sound is so good, one could think the concert is taking place right here. well …. Actually I found out it was the case …. It wasn’t a DVD for sale displayed on the screen, but the live concert by Elodie Frege. The people, the fun, the concert : the birds cards. The lively place : the birds and the garden. The store : the Garden Card. Inside of the store, I went to the book section. I found many book and yes I splurged totally. I found 2 books on the tarot, 1 on the Lenormand, the “elementary particles” by Michel Houellebecq, and 3 other books with beautiful drawings (there are supposed to be for kids but they are related to poetry, psychology, …; a book about Paris …. and Yes, I bought them all !!! The Book and the Fish : the many many many books 😀


The Book here and the Fish card were here not related to a dark stranger, but were to be taken literally in the case of the book, and the fish was to testify that they were many of them ! and of course, the splurge …
Those cards perfectly reflected the first part of my evening. I then went into a very fine restaurant and I celebrated with champagne and sea food. Cheers 😀
