October Paris letter wip

The October paris letter went out on monday...I think. Maybe Tuesday?
First several trips to Bastille marché with some inspiration from David Lebovitz Fall marche post thrown in.
The market oranges and creamy yellows inspire
Nuts and hunky Fall champignons
Marron, chataignes, chestnuts. Call them what you will. Sure signs Fall is here.
Today I saw Borsolino-style winter hats at Bastille going for a song
I pass bouquinistes by the Seine every day. Something inspirational always catches my eye.
This yellow quince print took 2 visits before buying
The Larousse legumes et plantes potageres was an instant purchase last summer. No hesitation at all.
All the bits are cut out like paperdolls, ready to be glued down
Ta da. A continuation of the seasonal foods series. You can get them all so far and Receive Parisbreakfast letters, mapand watercolors in your mailbox. 
Follow my INSTAGRAM for more Paris Fall. Three guesses what the October map will be?
