Happy Easter!

LOOK! Chickens! Eggs! Bunnies! Shellfish!?

Whatever it takes to make your Easter a happy one.
These were at Chocolat Mussy in the Marais.
Di Overton sent me there.
I saw wildly colored BOWS all over Paris for Easter.
These were at chocolatier Christian Constant's.
You can barely find Gerard Mulot's poules/hens for all the pink and blue bows!
These Christian Constant bunnies had their bows blowing in the wind, like a certain American folk singer.
Pierre Herme's ribbons were wired.

This Gerard Mulot moma and baby fish are ready for the Easter parade.

La maison du chocolat loves the big bow on a chocolate squirrel for Easter.
Dalloyau had "windy" bows too inside their shop.
Overall Gerard Mulot had the most festive, fun, excessive Easter goodies.He celebrates Easter with endless bows just like French painter Watteau
Parisien Watteau loved bows too..

Happy Easter also for you!!!
I´m wishing and watching those full-colored ribbons on your watercolours.
Easter in Seville smells like incense and orange-blossom - azahar

Paris bunnies are funny
all tied up in bows
some from their tails
to the tip of their nose
awaiting your camera
I suppose
Here comes Carol

Honestly Carol...I think posts like this should come with a 'chocolate craving' warning. It's 1030pm and there's nary a chocolate bar in sight. Waaaahhh!!

Hope you had a Happy Easter! :-))

And HAPPY EASTER to you too :)
Perhaps my posts should come with warnings or better yet, be read after a large meal.
I look at these chocolates like sculptures and a cultural documentary - strictly mental :) said...

Hope your Easter was beatiful... just like your blog!

Blame It on Paris said...

Strictly mental, hah. In that case, I, too, have a strictly platonic, for research purposes only relationship with chocolate. Which means, wait for it...all the chocolate I buy could be tax-deductible! Hmmm....

Joyeuses Pâques! What a wonderful collection of photos for the day.

Oh la la, a story in every cup, morsel of chocolate and croissant. It's too good to be true!

Meilleurs voeux!!
