can I move in?

It was a tough decision, given that there is a pasty shop about every block, but this one wins the award for my favorite!
I was thinking about moving in and rolling out a sleeping bag right there in the middle of their shop but I guess that's not allowed or something... plus, I don't think it would be good for business.
But really, you might be drooling just looking at this photo. I know I am.


The floor was so cute you could have eaten your treats right off it but we stuck with the tables to be more civilized tourists.
Actually, many people stopped us to ask for directions and a couple ladies from
Korea asked to take pictures with us. I felt bad after seeing the look on their face when Collin told them we were from the U.S. not France. heee heeeeee
I already miss walking down the street and buying a fresh baked baguette... so not fair. ;)

Ah this making me so jealous! I can't believe that I have never been to Paris even though it's only a train journey from England. Your photos make me want to jump into my computer screen and grab a Macaron! :)

elizabeth kartchner said...

you should Gemma. If I had more time I would have totally gone to England!
The macarons did not disappoint. :)

Yum... I loved that there was a pastry shop on every corner the few times I've been to Paris! I was addicted to strawberry Nutella crepes, too. They are divine!

Oh dear, now another place to hunt out when we go in June! You are making me want to leave a bit early though... like NOW!! :) So glad you had a great time there!

Liz,
You always wear the cutesy shoes!! Wish I could wear HOT shoes everyday, but I don't think the butcher shop where I work would think the idea is as great as I do. Keep snapping shots of your feet so I can live vicariously through you.

What an adorable bakery! So cute...the floor and your shoes! haha! Love the pics!

Laurie said...

Those treats looked divine! I have a wicked sweet tooth so I would probably come home from Paris five sizes bigger! So glad you had fun, you'll have to show us the project you taught over there. Love to see it!

Ah, Liz those pictures are making me wish I was back in France. I spent a wonderful year in Aix-en-Provence during my university days. There was a bakery just around the corner from my place. Loved it so much. Pain au chocolat was a favourite treat of mine!

You are so making me miss Paris! We took a 14 day, 5 city trip through Europe 3 years ago and Paris was by far my favorite city. I loved everything about it! :)

Oh how sad, that they weren't as thrilled when you were no longer "French"... But an easy mistake on their part, you two have incredibly great style & fashion! Next time just say , "sure for a $1" & gladly let them believe whatever they wish... Love your pictures! Thanks for sharing

It used to be one of my "boulangerie" !! I was living 200 m from there !!
But, I think you missed one of the best boulangerie in Paris, 100 m from there, in the corner of this street, called Secco. With all the parisian charm + amazing products... :-)

I really love your blog.
