Can Objects Speak?

Today I am inspired by this cute little shop in Martyrs Paris named L'Objet Qui Parle. (Translation = The object that speaks). If I came across it I don't think you would ever get me out of there. I just love the curtain in the window and the blue and yellow exterior. Can you see the little Eiffel Tower in the window? Do you have a favourite little "hideaway"shop ? I would love to know about it.

  2. Oh, I have so many of these wonderful little shops near me! They hold everything from vintage household items, to vintage jewelry, and some even have small pieces of furniture. You wouldn't think I could take hours and hours browsing one tiny little shop, but there's so much to see!
    And, yes, objects speak to me all the time, and the more battered and bruised they are, the louder they call out to me asking for a home.

  6. What a wonderful little storefront. I absolutely do have a favorite. My all time favorite is "My Favorite Room" in Plano, TX. It was created by a KMB designs, an interior design group, and it is the most divine place to visit. It is predominently Old french, shabby chic and a bit old world all at the same time. Most all bedding and soft goods are custom. She carries beatuiful clothing as well as beautiful french antiques. The shop is located in a 100 plus year old, two story downtown storefront. I visit at least once a week just to take in the beaty! :) KIM

  7. What a charming shop, I love the colors and the curtain is adorable! Wish I could explore it inside. Reminds me of the storefronts in the little town where my shop was in New York.

    My favorite shop now is called the Brick Basement. Different vendors display their vintage and antique goods on two levels. It's very quaint and charming and I never leave there without a treasure in hand.

  8. The Outer Banks in North Carolina is home to one of my favorite shops! It's called The Urban Cottage. I HAVE TO go to it every time I go to the beach!

  9. Very cute..., it took me a while to spot the Eiffel Tower. There are a few shops in Newport (RI), a coastal town half an hour drive from where I live that I like to go to. They are full of small seaside paintings, model ships, books and lots of other things.

  10. I am lucky enough to live in an area that has a lot of vintage and antique shops. However, they are not so cheap! I have to admit, some of them are gorgeous but none have the charm of this little stunner. I too love her curtain and her yellow and blue. She is adorable! I do love the online Blog The Vintage Rose which is a Tasmanian shop. I have never been to this shop but I know I would love it! There is another Tasmanian antique store I love in the midlands which is gorgeous inside and outside. Here's a link to it

    Also Lesley Hyde's online store The Pink Princess Blog is lovely as well.
    Thanks for that charming photo!

  17. I definitely believe objects speak to us ... those that speak the loudest carry the most meaning and significance. In fact, our favorite treasures/souvenirs/remembrances seem to speak louder through the years! :)

  19. What a charming photo. Thanks for sharing. I have to admit sadly, that I have never been to Paris. This is what makes blogging so fun. I was able to experience something that I would have never had the opportunity to see otherwise. Have a beautiful day!

  21. It looks like a little frou-frou decor shop that women love to hide in and men are loathe to visit. Am I right? Haha.
