Lustre au Trianon Palace... mais aussi : and ze winner is... ta da... suspense...


This is one of the chandeliers at Trianon Palace hotel. I think it's gorgeous in a modern-classical way! So... now that the daily fix of Versailles is done, let's get down to some serious stuff!
----------------------
Après la rasade quotidienne de Versailles, passons aux choses sérieuses !

First of all, thank you all so much for your lovely, lovely comments and for taking part in this draw. So, yesterday evening all your names on little bits of paper were put in the bowl, turned around and around, vigorously shaken... and finally... an innocent hand dipped in... Bravo Cezar et Léia! I hope Luna will like it too! Léia, please e-mail me!
--------------
Tout d'abord, merci à tous pour vos mots si gentils et pour avoir participé au tirage au sort. Hier soir, tous vos noms soigneusement inscrits sur des petits papiers se sont retrouvés ensemble dans le bol, ils ont tourné, tourné, ont été vigoureusement secoués... et finalement... une main innocente y a plongé... bravo Cezar et Léia ! J'espère que Luna aussi aimera le coussin ! Léia, tu m'envoies un mail s'il-te-plaît ?

It is an interesting chandelier, but not my favorite.

Re your comment today about housing developments, I understand and share your ambivalence. In many cases they have boring layouts and the houses are so identical that the only way to find your own is to check the number. But, I thought that both of today's shots had nice curvy street layouts and the houses had some decent architecture, especially the first one, which was more upscale.

I'm clapping my hands that Cezar and Leia will now have your lovely pillow in their home. I think Luna will take possession of it if the happy new owners are not careful.
