Sharing another Isabella story today. 💕
This one is from her little notebook in Paris. This little notebook was like Isabella’s cell phone in 1891. Instead of taking photos and videos, she jotted down descriptions and events from her day. 💕
“Came home and spent the rest of the day reclining, as we all felt the effects of our channel trip. Found the rest of our party here. So we went to our supper, Mrs.T and Lillian went with us. Oh, what delicious chocolate we had! I never knew what it was before.
Then we all rode on top of a bus all evening. Paris is beautiful, especially in the evening, as it is very brilliant. We got out at the Arc de Triomphe and went through it. 12 streets radiate from that spot and it was a beautiful sight. Uncle Will and I came home in a “cabby” and I am glad to go to bed. “
Yesterday I was so saddened after seeing the tragedy of Notre’ Dame on fire in Paris, it made me think of Isabella’s visit there.
This story cheered me up. How beautiful Paris must have been lit up at night in 1891! How I would love to go back in time and spend a day in Paris with Isabella and Uncle Willard. From her notes they sounded like a fun bunch. Including sliding down bannisters while throwing copper pennies in the air. 😉 💕
Swipe left to see a real photo of Isabella, the page of her little notebook this story is from, and what the buses they rode on top of in Paris 1891 looked like. And of course The Arc de Triomphe. 💕
Isabella is wearing her white Italian Opera gown made from her story description in Florence, Italy. This gown was custom made from the oh so talented @pemberleythreadsgirl ! 💕
