I'm celebrating today, not just because the market has bounced back
Yesterday I couldn't find my bank card + 2 credit cards = eeep! In the mad search for them, I decided to clean out all my Paris souvenirs lurking in my studio. Hoping what? That I might find my cards among them? Qui sait.. The point is I found so muchparaphrenalia, I decided I could open a macaron franchise here in Astoria, NY! I certainly have enough business cards to get going.
AND quite a few free postcards, a couple of stickers and a brochure or two.
Boxes? I have a vast collection just waiting to be filled.
Napkins? We're a bit low here...Hmmmm
Sugar packets? Oui!
Actual teapot and signature china? No yet.
But we do have a nice supply of teapot holder thingies.
While foraging through all this stuff, you'd think I would find at least one crumb or old chocolate lurking.. NOT A ONE! Next trip (in 14 days) I will be sure to throw a few into my suitcase with all these paper souvenirs.
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.
