Paris All-Red, Toute Rouge

Except for  the cafes, early morning Paris still looks confinement-empty. Its been a while since I've done an all-RED or any all-one-color post. 
Did you know they set up sample dummy tables with all the fixings to entice you? Perfect for still life shooting.
A cute VICHY RED-CHECK  sample table with matching checked
Bonne Maman jam jar.
A wild variety of tables and chairs have turned up in these extra-terresse. Someone is benefiting.
Parisian 'tour de France' bikers have taken over the streets. Its daunting and life threatening. In a city full of rules, bikers do not have to stop for RED lights! Why?
Choose between a'Petite Dejeuner Classique' (9€) or a 'New York Breakfast' (19€ !). Choose between a RED or GREEN cafe.
I'm putting in links to older RED posts otherwise how else will you see all 2,670 Parisbreakfasts post?
Metro RED is a Paris classic.
I love the blue skies coming up out of the metro...
Shades of RED on my inspo wall. My desktop in its current state of entropy and chaos. I'm listening to sunny 3-sister girl group HAIM right now. Do you want more Paris color posts? There may be some RED in my Etsy shop. Thinking of you dear PBers.❤️ Stay well please πŸ’‹ XXX

  7. Just had to write back and tell you I love HAIM also!
    I am “of a certain age” but find them really refreshing, and (goes without saying) super musically talented.

    Just to let you know how much I love my personalized bonus Shalimar perfume bottle watercolor. It's just lovely. I've begun collecting early 20th c perfume bottles so it's the perfect decor accoutrement.
    And what a delight to receive the July Cheese letter!

  11. So happy for you...a little jealous. I haven't been to Paris since the '80s. Yes I am dating myself.
    Good Luck & super thanks for Paris Breakfasts. Love them to start my day or for a treat.

    I had a Cheezie Map in today’s mailbox!
    It is fabulous in person - a work of art.
    I loved the many goodies that were tucked in. What a treat.
    The Quatrehomme business card is frameable!

  13. All the red is delightful but my favorite is your inspiration all and table. Oh, the best! I love the idea of a one-color post. I've never done that and it's a good idea for these days when I'm not getting out much. At all.

  15. I LOVE your “color” posts of out and about Paris

  16. Wow! A few years ago I decided that RED was my color! Now I have a RED JEEP, a red front door, two red wing chairs, red dishtowels, red umbrella, red flower pots, even RED tomato cages on my porch. Sadly, for some unknown reason, my RED tulips have died this year, though. I will replant in the fall. Thanks for this post and, yes, more Color posts would be lovely!
