I am back and feeling much better. Thank you for all the kind comments and
get well wishes.
I have an amazing giveaway for you today. Have you seen the huge map of Paris
at Restoration Hardware? It was love at first sight for me, but way out of my budget.
Restoration Hardware $1800
Here are some other options of Paris Maps.
Turgot, who held the mayor-like office of Prévôt des Marchands de Paris, commissioned Louis Bretez and Claude Lucas to produce this map in 1734.
It took the team nearly five years of exhaustive sketching and surveying to assemble this masterpiece. In order to produce the thousands of sketches and surveys required to complete this map, Bretez was issued a permit to enter every building in Paris.
The map is considered one of the most beautiful representations of Paris and the
original copper plates are preserved at the Louvre.
Obviously, you have guessed by now that the giveaway is this fabulous map of Paris.
Take a look at some of the ideas I found for using the map in your own home.
This is the giveaway map!
Pats Addition attached the map to a curved wall with wallpaper paste.

The Paris map could be framed in sections.
This is my favorite design and I plan on doing something similar in our home
using molding instead of individual frames to keep cost down.
The Giveaway is for one unframed replica of the 1739 Plan de
Paris Map measuring 98.5″x 63″. This comes in 25 individual
sheets and can be framed individually or attached to a wall,
canvas, furniture or board. The design possibilities are
endless and I bet you guys can come up with many creative
