Plus the big posters all over Paris drove me to the not-to-be missed exhibit.
An exquisite goblet in the same collection...This milky breast-shaped piece was designed especially forLa Laiterie de Rambouillet - Marie-Antoinette's dairy, Le hameau at Versailles.And then back again to Bernardaud to look again at this Limoges china... A 16th c Supernanny giving a good wacking with a bouquet of roses. These lush silk roses drove me to seek outSIA. *Note the decorative macarons. The shelf life of these cookies is not long. I wonder who's job it is to eat and replenish these window? A piece montee des macarons.
I moved to Paris 2 years ago. I should have done it sooner but that's how the macaron crumbles. Living on the Ile Saint Louis next to the Seine after the 19eme is 'la cerise sur la gâteau'. It doesn't get any better. I've painted watercolors for Bocuse, Champagne Mumm, Guerlain, Frederick Cassel, The Russian Tearoom and the Maharana of Udaipur.
