More Summer in Paris


For Summertime they have freshly-churned ice cream outside Galeries Lafayette Champs-Elysรฉes. But no one was serving ๐Ÿ˜ณ

Still I studied the flavors carefully…as always

Yesterday in the Marais, Bonjour Paris


It’s the last days of Summer in Paris…

Yesterday was a glorious day in the low 80s…

I moved in naturalement for a closer look at jams from the Auvergne

A trรจs chic baby carriage/poussette in Squid green with matching parasol ☂️ 

Everyone was eating ice cream…

Me too. I had my usual Grom vanille-pistache…again. 

Plus a  Hot dog at La Mosaique - Pat's Hot Dog 56 rue du Roi de Sicile. Ican never resist. In France you get fried shallots—the brown bits—on top. 

Marais cafes were full. 

One of this Summer’s looks I have yet to adopt…too much ๐Ÿฆ๐Ÿ˜ณ

The sweat shirt tied around the waistline.

Over at BHV department store…

A new promotion…Bonjour Paris

The brill artist, Marin Montagut has set up a series of trรฉs Parisienne adorable shops on the ground floor up until 2 October.
Everything you could dream to having the Paris look in your home and on your back. Remember his charming book
I admit I snuke my Luxembourg chair ๐Ÿช‘ watercolor in among his Luxembourg cups..just to see how it looked ๐Ÿ˜Š If you buy the chair watercolor, you get a free Paris Parks map ๐Ÿ‘
I made a little video of painting the chairs on Instagram now.
The new Fall fruits have arrived, hot off the presses!

La Madeleine Paris map


I’ve been working on the madeleine de Paris map since the first of August.

And I have the hips to prove it and as Shakira says, those hips don't lie.

The Surreal World of Elsa Schiaparelli/ Musee des Arts Decoratifs


Another late night at the museum.
 MAD/musee des arts decoratifs is open Thursdays till 9. And another spectacular don’t-miss exhibition is on in Paris till January 22.

The first room you enter is covered, including the floor you’re standing on with her fashion sketches. The ceiling is mirrored, so you’re inside a box ๐Ÿ“ฆ of drawings ✏️ Designer Elsa Schiaparelli made a donation in 1973 of over 6000 drawings in bound albums.

Poppies = Rouge de Delacroix = Marianne, Postal Museum


One thing leads to another. I started painting poppies after seeing a photo in the Vegetal exhibit

Later I saw this poppy card in a stationary/papetterie shop window, BUCI News, 4 rue Gregoire de Tours 6 eme.

I’ve reported on many amazing jewelry exhibits in Paris over the years,  but Vegetal(botanical) is by far the most astonishing exhibit for all it encompasses.

This magnificent exhibit combines fine jewelry and the deep influence of nature’s design. Presented by prestigious Maison Chaumet. It is a must-see if you can get here by 5 September. Reserve your ticket now. Yes there is AC.

Sundays in Paris = Vide-Grenier


Sunday morning in Paris is not just having croissants ๐Ÿฅ and petit dรฉjeuner☕️

Last Sunday I saw a couple lugging plastic modular 60’s chairs down the street. I asked them,”Objet trouvรฉ?” Did you find them in the street? Non, non we got them at the vide-grenier.

Cats in windows


Changes, changes..who likes them but sometimes they are necessary.  Parisbreakfast is switching email ๐Ÿ’Œ providers.  Delivery will be as usual. You don’t have to do a thing. Hopefully we’ll all get used to it๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ™ Another change—my latest obsession with cats in windows

I imagined in London, I’d see cats ๐Ÿˆ‍⬛ everywhere. Riding the red double-decker buses.
