Quel Bonheur~ Dans La Poste~Paris Maps.
You must remember this:)..When my Paris Letter came to me..
now that this bear is no longer in a baby's room here as the Littles are Big..I posed him w/ the Carol Gillott's Paris Letter I had subscribed to.
Well I am here to say that her Paris Maps..are amazing..I know that word is overused..but is suits her maps..
My sketch..es of me came w/ my map..I now have 2..and I just..well ..here I go again..love them..
so darn well done..Jacques said :"Look at the work involved"..I said :"I know"!~
They should definitely be in a book..I cannot imagine someone not wanting the whole collection in a beautiful book..w/ Carol's other singular art works..like the café cups..and the macarons and desserts and chocolats..
her recollections and of EVERYTHING from her Paris Dream..
these are a francophile's dream..an art lover's dream..
the maps of course contain souvenirs..adorable souvenirs..
every arrondissements is a special art lovers treat.
This is not your everyday map.
And the stamps on the envelope? I love stamps..the France real stamp of course but the rubber stamps..so adorable they are..
And I have never looked so good.
I treasure that face.How vain does that sound?
Well I do..when someone makes such a sketch..es ..of me.I give them a standing ovation,because that face she did..is my wish face.
Merci Carol...for that face.:)
Look at her..so adorb as she would say;)
The Paris Mail is available on Etsy....go see so cute..
A treat that lasts.
I love her subscriptions.♥
Meanwhile..here I am getting ready for Easter w/ some desserts..and made Jacques Crêpes Suzette for his birthday today..
yesterday we went for lunch at a New Orleans Bistro type resto..we had Creole Shrimp and Grits..and fell in love w/ grits..the seasoning and juice etc of the shrimps just melted into these cheesy delicious grits that had corn kernels and finely diced red pepper..baby bok choy laid on top..DELISH~
You should see my kitchen..first after I made the CS..whoa..all sparkley..then the baking and icing and piping tips..not the queen of piping here...nor the dancing queen:)
I have icing everywhere because I was NOT wearing one of my favorite aprons..my sinks are full and I am about to do system restore 2..
Jacques had Yves Montand playing all morning and this aft..all Paris..all good..:)♥
Went so well well my my Carol collection.
PS..Le lapin above is not going to make the cut:)his ear broke off..
Oh well..the baking continues tomorrow..
and the marveling of Carol's talents.
Please forgive the lacklustre pics..it's dark and snowing here..all day~Turning to rain we think~
