In Paris, Everything Looks Like Dessert

My Dearest Friends,
It is so good to spend time with you again.

I have a couple of small treats for you...

First, my dear friend Marie-France in Paris sent to me (some time ago, malheureusement!) a link to a blog talking about Mr. V's and my favorite Paris tearoom, Thé Cool, including even more yummy photos! It is from the blog Play Like a Girl. Please go there and spend a quiet moment on the rue de Médicis, relaxing after your stroll through the Jardins de Luxembourgh. I can't help but notice that this blogger was enchanted by the same thing I was and took more than one picture of the bathroom sink, which is tiled in pink iridescent glass tiles. I took one look and wished I was small enough to take a swim! What a gorgeous swimming pool it would be! I came back from the the bathroom and told Mr. V, "You have to go to the bathroom!". "No, I don't!" he retorted. "Yes, you do! And don't forget to wash your hands!" He was thinking I had finally lost it completely for treating him like he was four, when I explained that the bathroom sink was not to be missed!!

Next, I have found a way that you may visit Paris yourself, if only for a minute and a half. On the blog Lola Is Beauty, I found a beautiful little film by Susan Hochbaum called "Pastry/Paris". Please take a moment and watch it. It really does capture something quintessential about the city and the French attitudes about the beauty that surrounds them everyday. It seems to me the perfect treat for visitors to our little salons at The Gossamer Tearoom! Oh, and don't forget to have your speakers or headphones on when you watch!
