New York Hearts

Erin's Hearts, original art, 5" x 7"

A little bit of Paris hearts...

Photo sent in by PB reader last year

Because who can resist a little bit of virtual dreaming...

Meanwhile at New York's Chelsea Market cupcake maker Elenis has a tree of hearts...

In Soho Armani has heart message windows...

"Give Love
Get Love"

Across the street at Dean and Deluca - real edible heart cookies...

And heart soaps...

Plus real candied rose petals (not heart-shaped)

For a bit of Paris in New York head for La Maison du Chocolat's gorgeous windows on 1018 Madison Ave...

And a bit of Belgium, go to Pierre Marcolini on Park Avenue...

This is my favorite Marcolini heart


Photo of Fauchon by Anne Corrons Anne Corrons of Mes Vitrines had this fab photo of Fauchon's window in Paris up today...
Don't you HEART the internet?!

    I just love hearts!!!
    Have you ever been to Poiray Jewelers in Paris?
    They make some of the coolest heart charms/pendents, of which I have 3.
    My favorite is a gold basketweave heart. Here's the link

  5. Red jelly hearts for me please...

  6. That Laduree box is to die for, I'm not that keen on macaroons, and those soaps so beautifully packaged. The French know how to package don't they?

  7. Pierre Marcolini's hearts are really delicious; I had them a few years ago! Miam, miam!

    I just picked up some macarons for my French class today.
    All pink, of course:
    raspberry, passion fruit and cherry ones. Yum.
    Not packaged very beautifully, though.

    The heart feels, the head compares...

    If you want to know me,
    look inside your heart.

    Be careful what you set your heart upon for it will surely be yours.

    For me, the only things of interest are those linked to the heart.

  13. How delightfully gorgeous and the love birds too. Thanks for sharing such beauty!

  14. I admit I would not turn down a chocolate heart. These are scrumptious hearts, Carol, one and all!

  15. I heart New York
    and Paris Breakfasts!

  16. Beautiful! I love the compositions and your layouts - the colors.

  17. These are so beautiful! Thanks for sharing! I need to send you a picture of the window display at Mere de la Famille which is a chocolatier right around the corner from me here in the 17th.

  18. You seem to have ore French shops in New York than they do in Paris?

  19. Good morning, Paris!
    Are you already out looking for more hearts?
    I found some here, but they enthusiasm for St. Valentin here is nothing compared to New York's.


Love hearing from you
