Taking Tea with...Maitress

Payard PatissierieMaitresse says I "visually trope". I figuratively jump from subject to subject finding connections. Friends say I'm "scatter brained". The French call it Sauté du coq à l'âne. Lauren Elkin is a writer, critic, blogger, scholar.
I love the details at Payard Patisserie. Look down and see tea cups on the floor. Look up and molded croissants in the ceiling.
I was early so I ordered Mint tea and waited...enfin Maitress arrived

We laid our cards on the table first thing...Our MOO Cards! Hers are all of Venice and mine are all macarons

Maitresse/Lauren drank Earl Grey..she's in from Paris for just a few days.

Payard Macarons and Cherries, original watercolor, 9" x 12"
I love all the yellow striped boxes and ribbons and cards at Payard
