I've found my new favorite European city. Brussels! What a hussle and bussle town. The hub has spent a lot of time here.

Is this a wedding dress? I wish I could get married again if it is!

Or perhaps this one the second time around!

A papier store. Oh yes, I shopped! I'll share later.

Brussels is known for its art nouveau.

Look at this cutie greeting customers.

Oh, the stalls. The antique stalls. Talk about hyperventilating!

A closer look. Sigh.
Dessert at Wittamer's. Oh my.

Looking for dinner. There's a little alley that is chock full of wonderful restaurants!

The hub's dinner!

Lots more to share, but that will be tomorrow!! It's so wonderful here. New York without the speed!

I would be seriously broke and seriously worn out from making sure I'd see and of course purchased the odd treasures.....this looks and sounds amazing. I am so glad you are sharing all this and it's really furthering my desire for travel.
Safe journeys.

I've been NYC and think New Yorkers are lovely! I've always been treated kindly there.
Love these beautiful posts. I feel as if I'm there with you. What a fortunate person you are, to be able to enjoy so much of this beautiful world...and to be able to shop while doing so! LOL!
Can't wait to see the treasures you bring home!
Thank you for my card. I've been saving them all. I'm going to start a board to display my blogger mail. So much fun...I love hearing from you!
