While some of you are busy chopping onions for chili and popping corn for the big game, in Paris we're doing other things.
Who knew, for example, that January 30 (Friday) is National Croissant Day? Please raise your hands if you knew.
I did not know. There is a lot to keep up with in this town food-wise.
I do miss the days when I painted strictly from Japanese Re-Ment minaitures.
This was painted from...
These minis Japan blogger Kat sent me. Pretty swell no?
Yesterday I went out looking for croissants at a local no-name boulangerie and found adorable mini bakery tableaux.
Their croissants look lovely but I did not celebrate.
Moving right along to Chandeleur (Jan 3-Feb 6), it is now time to eat crepes in Paris. A never ending feast here!
Please do not ask me how Parisians stay thin.
I am clueless.
I love that the Bretons, crepe creators, call these dentelles(lacy). I am meeting Swedish Solli today for crepes at lunch time. I hope we share.
Speaking of lace, I hit last day of the Salon International de la Lingerie on Monday.
Thank you Lise Charmel for the much-needed black fur ball key chain and tiny black lace-covered notebook tied with a black ribbon in my goodie bag. What every girl needs now! I just wish I could fit into your divine lingerie...This is always an inspiring show.
Very inspiring to get one's booty back into the pool again...where I'm headed once this post is up!!!
Chocolatier Patrick Roger has valentines in his window.
And I have a new February Valentine letter for subscribers.
Err...please do not be offended if a few lingerie souvenir postcards are amongst the recipe cards...
I've gone all rosey for the February letter.
Plus I've added your names into the artwork with watercolor.
*(I must contact Mathew and Howard to see if they want their names on a pink ribbon).
THANK YOU all PBers for making 2014 an absolutely wonderful year. The letter subscriptions started just a year ago last February, make it possible for me to stay on in Paris.
Nothing delights me more
Enjoy your Super Bowl US PBers, while I munch on a crepe :)
