But chocolates for breakfast is another matter.


Cacao et Chocolat candy box It's well documented that eating breakfast prevents you getting fatter.

Pile of French candy boxes..EMPTY! Give one cause for idle chatter - yum..yum..yum
*A special note for those who are concerned for my well being and think I'm capable of eating everything I shoot. The contents of these French chocolate boxes were left in a bag outside the door of the concierge as well as several other lucky recipients (the photography shop on rue Vavin and M.s' door).
I can barely look a bonbon in the face these days...well almost :)

This blog is beastly!
Gorgeous sweets I can not have, and wonderful paintings I can not do. Beastly ... ;)

thanks for commenting on myblog. you offered to send me your chocolate box contens so that i could paint them.
it would be torture if i had to paint them. i would never finish a drawing as i would always end up eating them.

Lovely still life- I enjoy the dreamy, airy quality of your paintings, and of course, the subject matter is charming.
I've never heard of chocolate twigs- but it shouldn't suprise me!
Such amazing things culinary artists can do with food :) Happy Valentine's Day to you and yours!
