Pretty as a picture...

The best laid plans of mice and (wo)men oft go awry. Some people sit down in cafes to eat their pastries. And some people fill up bags of pastries.
Telling themselves they're going to just paint them...
They take them home and make very nice still life setups...
But they forget...
To paint them...
Somehow the pastries mysteriously disappears...
Before they even get a chance to step out of their boxes...
Here's one I forgot to buy and regret not eating. These are all from Angelina.
Some irresistable baby clothes are not edible even if you wish they were...
Like these D&G baby clothes...
Maybe not delicious but there has to be a dog in every PB posts.
BONJOUR PRETTY PASTRIES!

  6. Paris pastries are perfection.
    Too beautiful to eat really but sometimes you have to make an exception.
    This was one of those times...

  9. Oooh those cakes look delish! Wonder why I am sitting here with a cuppa and no accompanying delicious cake?! I loved the white dress, at first I thought that was a beautiful christening cake.

  10. Dearest Carol,
    merci beaucoup for putting a smile on my face with your witty and beautifully done post today!
    I especially love the sexy grand exit from the box of that Saint Honore' - mamma mia, what grand Dame!
    Big hug,
    M.

  11. We are still smiling from your wonderful story. We deal with this dilemma weekly and just do not know where those pastries go. Pastry heaven?

  14. Mucho belated B-Day wishes to you, Carol. I think you have every right,
    as an artist celebrating her birthday, to indulge in the ritual of eating your still-lifes.
    I just wish I was there to share in the eating.

  17. That "mysterious disappearing" thing happens at my house, too, like when I buy a bag of cookies and promise myself I'll eat 3 a day for a week and it's gone after day 2. Yeah. Mysterious. (And I can't even blame Harry The Cat for this one...)

  20. Amy:
    Cookies last until Day 2?
    Not here!!
    Never :(
    I believe in being expedient.

    A clean slate a toute a suite!
    Best to get the job done and over with is my policy.

  22. I always try to use props that I can eat afterwards...preferably those made from chocolate.

  23. This made me imagine sitting there trying very hard not to eat the pastries... If it were me there would never be any paintings, the pastries would be eaten every time.
