Bleu Blanc Rouge


 I’m so happy M. Macron is continuing as president of France ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท ๐Ÿพ๐Ÿคธ‍♂️

I went off on  red check painting tangent today
Especially since Sabra check spoons ๐Ÿฅ„  came into my life.
It doesn’t take much for me to become red-checked obsessed.
These are actually Real shoes from MuiMui! I’m always looking at feet. Maybe because I used to design shoes
I saw these the other day on the Metro. Someone can’t wait for Summer. 
Speaking of Summer, Maison d’Isabelle can’t wait to show off their Summer fruit Tartes. Perfect way to celebrate the election outcome๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท 

A very Frenchy shop for checkered accessories 
Is confisierie Maison Moinet of Vichy. 
Their tins and boxes are irresistible. The town of Vichy has been making checked cloth since the 17th and 18th century. 
George Washington requested of his nephew living in Paris to send him Vichy check seat covers for Mount Vernon. 
The Vichy check is a common, everyday fabric, yet its an instant reminder of classic French bistros. 
And you can’t get more classic bistro than Le Fontaine de Mars. Have you been? Really fun. Well s’il vous plait raise a glass ๐Ÿพto Emanuel et Brigitte๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘ Some  checkered watercolors await on Etsy. Bonne Monday PBers❤️๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท

Checks are so cheerful, n’est-ce pas? (Hope I spelled that correctly). In the first photo it’s difficult to tell which items are the correct size. Clever!!

YAY! for Macron being re-elected! ๐Ÿ‡ซ๐Ÿ‡ท Fun post, Carol. Love Sabre, jam jars, tea cups, Vichy check, your watercolors…and shoes! And, that view out of your window…no wonder you never run out of inspiration!

Very happy to see that he was re-elected. Let's hope he is able to carry through with his promises to do better.

You are brilliant Carol! Love how you pull all these various facts together!! Love these watercolors, you can’t go wrong with red and white checks!!

The tray items are miniatures if you’d confused. But larger than dollhouse size from Rement, a Japanese company. I love to paint from them.

I was surprised those were real shoes (MuiMui). They look like something you could make yourself…glue some ribbon to ballet shoes…great idea actually!

Parisbreakfasts said...

Me too
And Designer shoes no less!
Probably cost a fortune too

Stephanie said...

Beautiful! Thank you so much, Carol. We enjoy your blog so much

Oh, love those spoons too! That summer berry tart looks delicious. Very happy to wake up on Monday here in Australia and see that Macron was re-elected, phew!

Your La Fontaine De Mars♥You are the check queen.

Jeanie said...

Oh Carol, I do love the checks! So springy. And the red is just so happy -- your Fontaine de Mars is the perfect representation and your jam jars, too. Love that silverware!

Parisbreakfasts said...

Kirra — A massive PHEW was heard throughout the land!!

Jeanie—checks are so cheery arent they ๐Ÿ˜Š

Good Day. Please remind me when all of Paris sells lily of the valley
bouquets. I remember past blogs when you had wonderful pictures of many stalls and stores displaying these. Mid May?
Thanks

Love it! We rejoice with you and the French. Yesterday I put all my French CDs on to celebrate
and we had continuous French songs for hours . My husband call it “Macron Music”. We were afloat with Piaf, Trenet, etc., etc. and many more. Also, put our Sabra silverware on the table.
