I’ve been Tagged - Photo Number 16


I’ve been tagged. 
This time by the gorgeous Yvonne @
my new blog title 
Yvonne’s blog is a feast for the eyes and the taste buds.
Her weekly menus are a delicious combination of
easy to prepare dishes and healthy ingredients,
topped off with pretty table scapes and beautiful images.
                                                                                                                 
   Part of being tagged is I need to re-post my 6th blog photo. 
I did post that one few weeks ago, so I thought I'd re-post the 16th photo instead.
SPices redo c

This colorful selection of spices was found at the Salon du Chocolat
in Paris last November.
This yearly event is a magnet for chocolate lovers

I know you are thinking - so where's the chocolate?

that is if you can withstand the temptation!
