A Pleasant Surprise

I received a very kind award invitation from the  The Plumed Pen  blog.   Merci.  You all know I’ve just arrived to the blogosphere so all this is still rather new.  I’m supposed to share 7 things about myself.  

 Hmmm...

Of course before I get started I need some inspiration...Tea usually perks me up...but I have nothing to nibble on.



Perhaps the little café around the corner would help...nice atmosphere, great people-watching...

That's better, and one of these...


Now I can get some work done...

1.) I have a sweet tooth.  You've figured that out by now, and I have the figure to prove it…Uh oh!



2.) I have a travel business  Paris Travel Group.com.   I design personalized itineraries and private walking tours in Paris and I love it.



3.) I always wear dresses or skirts.  I dislike jeans (okay I do have one pair).



4.) I prefer tea over coffee. Teatime with all the accoutrements. A silver tea service is a weakness.



5.) Found an easy recipe for madeleines - my honey’s favorite gateau (cake).



6.) I love to write letters using an antique inkwell, quill pen and a wax seal.



7.) I love candlelight – makes everything and everyone softer and prettier, and did I mention it is oh so romantic!

Not terribly interesting but that’s my list.



Put a Little Ooh La La in Your Life!

Bonsoire Madam "Bonjour Romance",
very pleased to meet you and your lovely blog. Found a comment of yourse somewhere and got so intrigued by the name of your blog that I HSD to drop by. And now that I have, I'm so glad I did.
Your blog is tres romantique, full of genuine inspiration and inviting. Coming back often is really a must-do.
meantime, I'll be delighted if you'll come and visit my blog at http://ritashabbychicrose.blogspot.com/
I'll be happy to show you around a bit. After all, Italy is not so far away from France and, though this might not be your cup of tea, I love country french home decor...
Until our next virtual meeting in blogland, take care.

Another really interesting post! Glad to know about your Paris Travel Group. My husband and I are planning a trip to Paris in December and would love one of your personalised itineraries. Heading over there right now!

You are so right about candlelight...it is most flattering, and sometimes we need all the help we can get! I certainly have been enjoying your lovely posts.

What a beautiful post! It conjures up all sorts of images... I have some old writing boxes, ink wells, pens and sealing wax that were passed down from previous generations and old letters tied in bundles with string. They were so fancy back then.

Thank you so much for the wonderful comments on my blog! It really means a lot to me. I am honored to be listed on your "blogs that inspire" list. Your blog is a joy to read with so many great pictures, and truly inspiring to me!

Bonjour Mimi. I am thrilled you stopped by to say hello. Love your site. With the launch of your blog, you have just made the blogosphere a better and more beautiful place. Looking forward to following you around Paris and getting your insights...like who knew Mariage Fréres in the 6th was less crowded...our apartment is in the Marais and so we brave the crowds. My daughter is there full time, so I will send her your link as I know she would enjoy your site.
