Posters in the Metro announce the Salon du Cheval, another annual holiday event next weekend looks very tempting. Have you ever been?
Even Carrefort supermarché has dozens of bottles handy by the checkout with sausages and sandwiches to go.
Friday through Sunday was the small winter fair with 20 producteurs around Sacre Coeur. The Spring version was full of strawberries and whipped cream.
A walnut farm had tartes and kilo bags of unshelled walnuts in the shell. I should have bought them.
The best I've had and far tastier than those sold by street vendors on boulevard Haussmann (often cold and sometimes rotten).
Many of the farm stands have B and Bs as well, so you can stay and immerse yourself in the pastoral countryside.
I loved this humble mushroom-shaped wreath (in case you hadn't guessed) at the mushroom (cépes) seller.
This week on Friday at Salon Saveurs I stopped in my tracks at Maison de Chantilly. Butter cookie cones filled with freshly whipped cream. No, I did not taste one. This week I went back to the pool finally after a two month hiatus and whipped cream is off the menu at the moment. They will be opening a boutique on rue Cler end of March 2015...maybe by then I can indulge.
This week on Tuesday I participated in the Holiday Fair at the American Embassy. They took away my iPad at Security so I can't show you any pictures. Only this Google map.
I sold a lot of macaron and teapot prints at the Embassy, but I made up too many 6-packs of the Paris Sketch Letters, so I having, for a limited time only, A pre-BLACK FRIDAY SALE -$5 off with a surprise gift print included available on Etsy.
In October someone asked if I would have the December Paris Sketch Letter done by Christmas?
*I'm happy to report this week I got the December Sketch Letter artwork done AHEAD OF TIME.
It will be going out next week! Yahoo
It's been a busy week.
'Bon(ne) Dimanche' as the man in the elevator said to me today after I dropped my bag of apples on his foot.
