Rue Crémieux is a short walking street of two-story houses facing each other.
The jewel tones of the houses give the street a fanciful appearance.

Many of the homes have tromp l'oeil as seen here and in the photos today. 

This maison violette with its two magpies may have a story to go along with the art.
Magpies are said to be very intelligent and also attracted to shiny objects,
like the jeweled ring. 

Is there a fable about magpies by Jean de La Fontaine?
