Collecting Paris Ducks

 Collecting ducks in Paris...
 Doesn't cost a euro...
 Unless you're into foie gras...ahem
 No ducks in fromagerie Barthelemy's vitrine, just cheese and chickens...
 Easter time brings out a gaggle of geese in Paris bien sur...
 You can find canard a foie gras anytime but especially at New Years...
 I wonder who makes all these darling ducks..?
 A duckling nightlight would be fun...
 Real farm ducks (and goats) come to Montmartre Sundays for the kids. Not in New York...

    Ok, I'm off to vote for youuuuu!

  3. Done..well deserved !

    Love yr duckies

  5. I would have never guessed ducks in Paris. That man in the yellow pants just doesn't make a very good looking duck! :) I went and put a vote in for you.

    You've got my votes...Congratulations! Apropos of this: "Take that! you irritating blog grammar police wherever you may strike next."

  7. One more vote for you!

    I like the photos - especially the "through the windows" pics.

  8. Oh Carol, I can never get enough of the windows. I love them, you always manage to find something unique and inspiring... and now ducks!!! I must agree, the man in the overalls is definitely a Vogue "don't"!!! Now off to vote! ~Jen

  9. Not to mention the "Canard Exquis" promotion time

    The event at the Shangrila was amazing with tremendous delicious recipes with duck :)

  10. When I used to shoot at the James Beard House there was foie gras on the menu EVERY night
    so I prefer ceramic ducks now..

  11. I dearly LOVE foie gras but have given it up since learning how it is created. Sigh. Now Foie Lapin might be a horse of a different color.

  12. OH I LOVE your painting.... its adorable. Love the doggy standing up on the glass window. OK I need to go vote too. Off I go...

  13. You captured my frommage loving Tibbies & Barthelmy perfectly! You are the best, Carol!
    I want that duckie nitelite for the barn too. Hope to add the real ones to the farm this spring. Loved the goats & ducks at Montmartre, but I wouldn't wear those yellow waders, altho I do have red overalls.
    Foie Gras,yum! will have to make do with the faux kind tho.

  14. I love 'Paris Breakfasts' so much I've written about it on my new blog (and I have voted for you!);
