Paris Breakfast, the Refrigerator and the Marmottan Museum

The day started with a trip to the corner grocery and a stop at the bakery. Breakfast for me was my favorite pastry called Pain avec Raisins, the others enjoyed croissants. I have to post about the refrigerator. It is only one drawer that you pull out and open like a dresser drawer. I was very impressed.
After our Paris breakfast we ventured out in the rain to see the most incredible exhibit of one of the few successful women impressionists, Berthe Morisot.
Google her if you are interested and look at her paintings. Her artwork is incredibly beautiful and you've got to see how her paintings evolved over the years.
The exhibit was at the Marmotten Museum, which used to be a private mansion and houses many works by Claude Monet too.
We helped the French economy in the afternoon by doing some shopping and then home to do some painting and sleep soundly dreaming of the French Impressionists....
