La Plume de Louise en l'Ile 75004

Before moving to Paris I suffered from EIFFEL TOWER INSANITY like everyone else..
The Eiffel tower clock was an essential decor element.
Why did I leave this Eiffel tower pillow back in New York. Where is it now? 
I took a gazillion photos at every opp and still do, though the obsession subsides with daily doses.
If you're similarly obsessed head for LA PLUME DE LOUISE EN L'ILE
Eiffel tower HQ. Look at these tiny irresistable spoons and stripy tray
Why not deck yourself out more or less head-to-toe?
LA PLUME publishes wonderful notebooks, childrens books. Especially wonderful their unique DIY cardboard Eiffel Towers in an endless array of chic designs not just for kids.
I wandered into LA PLUME DE LOUISE EN L'ILE gift shop by chance after soupe d'oignon at Brasserie de l'Isle Saint-Louis. Its next door so drop in at 3, rue jean du Bellay 75004. I swooned over  wrap-around panorama of the Ile. The owner quickly ran downstairs and gave me a mini version now installed in my studio. Mille Merci M. Frank and thanks PBers for reading and sharing Parisbreakfast. Subscription letters 💌, maps and watercolors are in my Etsy shop
With love💋from Paris🐻

    Why have I never seen this on any trip? I needed this! I have a friend in Queens who once said to me, 'you can't have too many Eiffel Towers,'
    So I send her about 3 a week: notes, stickers, napkins.
    I could really load up here. I hope to come in September.

    1. 'You can't have too many Eiffel Towers,

      You sure Audrey Hepburn didnt say that?

    I have been to that shop. I bought the cardboard ET for grandsons,

    Have a picture of one of my grandsons wearing his Napoleon hat, putting it together.
    It’s a great place for Paris gifts

  5. I think they should be selling your Eiffels too! It looks charming and everyone seems to love this image -- I know I do. Love those spoons. Probably a good thing I didn't find this spot when I was in Paris!

  10. I love your post today of La Plume de Louise... so charming I’m a sucker for La Tour Eiffel too. I’ll never forget the first I saw it and stood under it-unforgettable.
    Any chance your watercolor of La Plume might become available for sale??
