Two years, ago, when I went to see a ballet at the Opéra Garnier, I found these gorgeous paper lanterns in the Opera Gallery shop, and I instantly fell in love with them. If it weren't for the price, I would have bought them instantly. These elegant pieces are made in paper by a couple of talented artists under the label Papier à Etres and can be bought in Europe, Australia or Japan, or seen in elegant windows, including those of a famous jewelry store in the chic place Vendôme in Paris. Now, two years later, as their charm doesn't fade for me, I am even more tempted to get at least one of them.
