Merci Lost in Cheeseland


 When Lindsey Tramuta of Lost in Cheeseland asked for a portrait photo to go with her Franco file interview on Parisbreakfast she did not want a picture of my feet.


 Wet or dry. And who can blame her?
Fortunately Carla Coulson will do a proper Paris portrait in a week but till then...

 Still you can't go wrong wearing red shoes in Paris.

 It's a classic. Especially worn with black tights.

 Another summer classic - framboise and fraise desserts adorning the patisserie vitrines.

 As an homage to Paris reds I bought a single red strawberry on a black ribbon from La Fille du Consul.

 And ate a framboise ice cream cone.
Essential really...

I've yet to taste Jean-Paul Hevin's chocolat-framboise little cakes but it's on the must list. Do stop by and see what Lindsey has to say about Parisbreakfasts.

Big Merci Lost in Cheeseland!

  1. Carol,
    I love your interview with Lindsey of Cheeseland! :-)
    Can't wait to see a proper Paris portrait of yourself.

    Your polka-dot red ballerinas are great, I have said so before. I am getting a little worried, though, that my youngest will see them and want them! She's a ballerina kind of girl.

    Framboise and chocolate are a divine combination, a match made in heaven! I recently had a framboise sour cream gelato, that was also very good.

    Are you enjoying the summer evenings in Paris? Here, everybody and their brother are out and about when dusk falls, into late evening.

    1. Love the late nights full of light here
      10PM and you still don't need to turn on the lights!
      The weather has changed and is brilliant.
      very happy as long as it doesn't go New York heat on me.
      Thanks cg

  4. Love the dotted red shoes and thoroughly enjoyed the Lost in Cheeseland interview. Carol, I'm a wee bit excited to be invited to the consulat's Bastille Day reception today. I'm not planning to take photos but will be capturing some good memories.

  7. I've always loved red, but this morning, the most appealing pictures are the ones with strawberries to eat! Your last watercolor with the raspberry on top of the chocolate is making me drool. Woops. That's probably not polite to say. Well, I'm off to find some strawberry jam.

  8. The reds are outstanding! Maybe it is the contrast of the reds to the gray look to the weather? Whatever, the shoes, strawberries, pastries all have an extra pop today!
    (My favorites are the red ballerinas on the women as they stroll and shop - Paris for girl watchers.)

  9. I do have 5 pairs of red shoes. I think red makes women more beautiful!

    I'm happy to know this. My wife recently bought a pair of shiny red flats, and our trip to Paris is a mere three weeks away.

  11. I loved the interview & your watercolors that went with it. Red is such an exciting color, as is your life! The giant cone with the café behind it is adorable...I recently watched the film The Red Shoes, the one from which you see a clip in Le Divorce...
