This red heart...

Next trip I'm skipping dinner and buying these roses... I hold your heart close to mine...

Laduree, you've won my heart... I know we had a date.
I know I'm late.

Fauchon sets my heart a twitter AND my camera... This red heart is filled with chocolate...

Here is everything you need for today: champagne, roses, chocolates. Oh the guy is missing... But you'll just have to wait...

Hmmm... Till next year. And I know you'll be irate..

LOVE this window at Marie Papier! Because this red heart is my new soul mate :)

    This red heart has been untrue.

    You made me bleu.

    Our date fell through.

    My chocolates - you took them too.

    I must bid you adieu.

    I think I'll go make some beef stew...

    I was looking for a chocolate pot, and found your lovely website.
    I love your watercolors.
    Please let me know where and how they are available.
    Thank you

  6. So "they" finally let you post another beautiful blog entry.
    Have a great day
    (I was sitting outdoors today at the Gloriette for the after-lunch-cup-of-espresso, 18 degrees Celcius!).
    Sunny greetings from Vienna,

  7. Merisi, it may be -18 degrees here :(
    So I don't wanna hear about it :P
    Sleeting too..just you wait.
    I hear it's blowing your way...

    I happened upon your blog and love your artistic style. The watercolors are deceptively simple yet full of emotional.
    I was in Paris last June and fell in love. We stayed above rue Cler - and had fresh baguette, roasted chicken, Camembert and a bottle of wine while watching the Eiffel lights turn on.
    Thanks for bringing back those memories.
    Best regards,

    Valentine's and chocolates. Can ther ever be Valentine's without chocolates?

    love rules

  15. Happy Valentine's! What a beautiful post - especially with your art imbedded in the links. Chocolates, hearts and roses - could't be better!

  16. Grey sky and rain today. :-(
    Even the birds don't soar, they sit in the trees instead, clamoring for hot chocolate!!!!

    My present of the day: another box which could be dear to your heart ...

    I loved all your links... those little birdies are "à croquer".

    Explaining the French hint (especially for Anonymouse!)
    The phrase "belle/beau à croquer" is said about a child who looks lovely (looking / or well-dressed) lovely that you could feel like having a bite... or a sketch ... as "croquer" meaning to bite, to scrunch AND to sketch" too...

  18. MERCI Marie-Noëlle
    I bought a silly little pencil case in Paris that says,
    "à croquer CHOCOLAT"
    Now I know what it means :)

  19. glorious photos as always! and yes...i indulged without care - i made made magnolia bakery's chocolate cupcakes with buttercream frosting - always delicious.

  20. I love the Valentine's notelets on the last image. I wish I had thought of that for this year! I can't wait til my next trip to Paris - Marie Papier here I come!


Love hearing from you
