Paris Papeterie map and Pets in Paris Portraits

This is an alert to lets those anxiously waiting for their Paris mail to arrive...
The September map has shipped out today enfin!
Who doesn't love Paris papeterie (stationary) shops?
You'd have to be mad not to
Right?
Filled with such colorful goodies too.
Color themes that can break your heart...so beautiful.
Be like Marie-Antoinette and write with a Paris plume
Or plume de ma tante. So you should have the latest Paris map in your letter box shortly. FYI they will stop after April-May 2017 by the way. They do seem to drive me crazy monthly. Map makers are organized people as I found out the hard way. So Carpe Diem.
On the other hand (one wants to say paw..) all the big dogs in Dieppe reminded me that I miss painting their portraits.
Little dogs too barked a few times.
Then a sign came to me enroute to the pool the other morning. OK I know a duck is coming out of the back of his neck but this looks alot
Like my darling Rudi...non?
And you have been sending requests.
Painting your pets in Paris has always been a delight
So why not do them again. You can order directly in my Etsy shop.
S'il vous plait include tails and paws in your reference photos. Most helpful. The more photos the better and tell me the name of your pet. It helps.
Thanks for reading Parisbreakfast!

  2. I think Rudi is generously giving the duck a ride across the street.

    1. There is a lot of color in Paris because its a predominantly grey city. Color is the spark of life.

    Love the paper stores in France! They are my first stops in my travels. I owned 3 paper stores in the bay area for 17 yrs. so it is in my blood!

  12. Yay! I will look forward to getting my September map letter. I love both the sketch and map letters, but understand the map letters are a LOT of organising so will get them all till you stop next year then switch to the sketch letters. I wish I had a pet to get painted but I don't........ personally I love stationary shops in Japan but haven't spent much time looking them out it Paris. Next time I hope!
