La Joie de Vivre Shopping in Paris

DSC_0736Living well, for me, must include travel and incorporating elements from my trips into my everyday life. Souvenirs can be edible, artistic or useful. A few weeks ago I stumbled upon la Joie de Vivre shop on rue de Seine in the 6th arrondissement. Here’s what I found of interest…

DSC_0733Traditional flower pattern or contemporary Ikat dye designs. Cotton table clothes with matching napkins at reasonable prices.

DSC_0735100% vegetable candles in typical French fragrances like rose and orange blossom are accompanied by interesting options like winter evening and green tea.

DSC_0737Wine enthusiasts will love the clever faux mini Merlot bottle that opens in half to reveal a bar set which includes a bottle opener, bottle collar, and pourer.

DSC_0741Sets of vintage, etched, multicolored highball glasses are a throwback to our parents and grandparent’s cocktail parties. Glass plates in all shapes, sizes and patterns make wonderful accent pieces and can be shipped for an extra charge.

DSC_0742French pottery in earth tones is perfect for fall table décor; add a red and taupe wine themed table runner or napkins for a pop of color.

DSC_0743Go ahead and opt for gift-wrap if you have room in your checked luggage because they decorate their packages so adorably.
