Mystery Salon Revealed

I once knew a woman who, after seeing this movie, swore I looked just like Juliette.  Anybody else see it?  Yeah-  don’t worry- I don’t either.  Just thought I’d throw that out there.  Anyway….

I had to delay writing this post because the response to my  challenge  to guess the theme of  my next salon visit was so overwhelming it crashed my server. (Really?  Not one comment ?  What am I paying you people for???)

As you have probably surmised, it was the celebrated Salon du Chocolat!  I am not really such a huge chocolate fan.  Given the choice, I’ll opt for a fruit cobbler or a cooked pudding over chocolate every time.   But I must say that I thoroughly enjoyed  all the samples handed my way at the salon, and there were a lot of them.  Some of you would have been in chocolate nirvana.

I took sooooo many pictures and had such a hard time trying to pick which ones to share, I am just going to put them in here as a slideshow.  You might not want to watch it if you’re hungry.  Or on a diet.  Or whatever.

Wasn’t that cool?  I loved the chocolate sculptures.  Only Paris would have chocolate fashion.

I had a hard time choosing what to bring home to Sawyer  Mark and Martha, but settled on an array of flavored chocolate cubes on sticks, to be deposited in cups of steaming milk on cold Paris nights.  Yum.

Sawyer was picked up by his own personal driver this morning to go out to the farm where he will be staying for the next week while we go on vacation to the Amalfi coast.  I know he will be glad to be out of this apartment and out running free.  He is getting a bit fed up with this city living.

These boots were made for walking, dammit, not lying on the floor.

I’m not taking my laptop with me, but I’ll be taking my camera for future posts.

Y’all come back now.

Ya hear?

Oops- can't forget this little lovely!

    This is amazing. Loved the chocolate fashion show. Have fun on vacation.

  2. Wonderful shots, Kate! I am a bit dilatory in thanking you, Mark, and Martha for Great shots, Kate! I am a bit dilatory in thanking you, Mark, and Martha for the entertaining two weeks that you so generously provided for Mom and me in Paris. We both love you all to the max, and I am just now getting over missing you to extent that I can talk about it. In any event, we loved being with you, and look forward to our annual visits to Paris. I am at a loss for how you will duplicate having done so much for us in such a short time. Have a great time in Positano, and, of course, on the lovely Amalfi coast.

    Look at your fancy slide show! You are too savvy for words. And send us some chocolat at le Blue Willow! 🙂

Hollah back y'all!
