L'Ecureuil de Vaux le Vicomte,watercolor, 5.5" x 7.5
I have been grappling with this darn squirrel paw to paw this morning, and so far the squirrel is winning.
As noted before this squirrel is on the Chateau Vaux le Vicomte coat of arms.
The Countess did a book event at the New York Alliance Francaise last night and I got to meet the squirrel's owners, so to speak.
The story of the chateau is intriguing and the Countess Christina de Vogue could not be more charming...
Remember this gorgeous book I showed you in September?Decadent Desserts: Recipes from Chateau Vaux-le-Vicomte
After the talk we got to taste the Countess's heavenly desserts from her new book.
