Fond Memories of a Rainy Night

Our favorite apartment is just around the corner form this wonderful cafe.  After a long day shopping we would stop here for a cuppa (Duchess) and a wine for moi.  Their french onion soup hits the spot and warms us.
If you walk towards the left you enter the Palais Royale gardens and the modern sculpture court.  In front of this is the magical glass Metro archway of the stop by the same name.

Too Late!

I was just a hair too late to snap up this wonderful cabinet for a client! Darn it!
What is it about the gray we are all so in thralled with these days?  Is this a beige backlash?  What do you have in your home that is gray?  Do check out the shop for more pieces that will fit in your home with charming effects!

French Iron Bowl

Why is it that the French take everyday objects and make them so special?  This old cast iron bowl was originally used as a spittoon.  Yes, you read right!  But they went to the trouble of making it wonderful, not a simple bowl, but one with a scalloped base much like a crown.
We have this one in the shop.
A bientot!

Laduree Sighting

We are always on the lookout for Laduree and imagine my surprise when I spotted this cart in a busy concourse at the Charles de Gaulle airport!  We were dashing to our next flight but I couldn't resist getting a few for our airborne desserts.
What is your favorite flavor?  I think mine has to be the cafe, but, wait,  it could be the lemon but then again the chocolate is never a mistake! c'est la vie!
