Paris Cherry blossom Map + single letter!

At last! 🤸🏾‍♀️A matching Cherry blossom map to go with the Eiffel tower letter

Remember I showed you Georgianna Lane’s beautiful Paris in Bloom? It was 4 years ago.
Turns out its the perfect source when looking for les cerises en fleurs/cherry blossoms in Paris. 
Maps take longer to do. So many sketches and doodles. Its useful to have a strawberry bookmark/marc paige in case you get hungry🍓 
Even more useful are Paris pastries + whipped cream. They are required to get to the map art finish line for some reason. Hmmm..
I was thinking I could drop pressed (peony) petals into your envelopes. This did not work out.
Lenotre again has pretty flowery window decor. 
Spring is definitely in the air.
More cherry blossom pink across the street. The boulangerie has fait maison/home-made pink marshmallows. I resisted. Should I go back? They are open on Sundays...

I’ve become seriously addicted to whip cream for someone who never ate it before.  Now it goes on Everything. Move to Paris. This is what happens. No one said. 
A robins egg blue vintage mini car matching the Paris sky, around the corner from my house. Does the vintage garage only display it in Spring? A definite upper ☺️🌸💋🍓 And a tour group with matching turquoise berets in the park nearby. So Springy. Thanks for reading ParisBreakfast 😊 You’ll find the new single blossom map in my Etsy shop
Have a Happy Spring Sunday 🌸🐻😊


  1. I like the raining petals in your latest. I have walked through an orchard when the petals were raining softly all around me. It was delightful.

    Thank you for sharing the many small delights of strawberries, peonys, blossoms and shop windows.
    In the meantime, vicariously visiting familiar and new sites with you is such a pleasure.

    The luscious blossomy letter has arrived and now I look forward to the map to join it.
    Here in VA’s Shenandoah Valley we’re awash with native pure white dogwoods and heavenly ethereal pinky-violet eastern redbuds.

  14. No delicious pastries or lovely shop windows here to enjoy, alas. I depend on you, dear friend!

  15. Thank you for bringing so much beauty, joy and kindness to the world through your wonderful art and blog. Such a joy, especially in these challenging times. :)

    Can't spend time in Paris especially for cherry season. This could be a new destination for me if ever tried out. However, I will surely share this article with my dad who is busy in his


Love hearing from you
