I had a nice start to my day. I ended up meeting another blogger, Kate, for a tea this morning in the Galerie Vivienne covered passage way. It is a beautiful covered passage way and a great way to spend a cold morning. We had a tea at the A Priori Thé salon. I had their melange maison, an orange and honey tea. We ordered some scones with our tea and they were delicious. Personally, I really, really love a good scone. It was a really enjoyable breakfast.
After the breakfast we walked to the Jouffroy covered passageway nearby -- the only way to shop on a nearly freezing cold day. There are many charming, quaint shops -- lots of fun shopping -- including books stores, art stores, and French figurine shops. If you are looking for something other than a steel eiffel tower (and I do love them...) to bring home, this is a good place to look for out of the ordinary gifts.

I wonder if in the US somewhere, they would attempt to recreate the building and aura of a beautiful passageway like this one.
