Bonne Rentrée

Bonne rentrée.
In France this is what the time between the end of the summer holidays
and the start of the new school year is called.

Books, paints, pencil cases, so many things to buy
and all in chocolate! 
Everything you see here is chocolate. 
I love these marbled book covers. 

Found this in the Marais in Paris, but was so busy looking (drooling) I forgot to get the name.
I may need to go back to get that for you...LOL



Put a Little Ooh La La in Your Life!

Don't you just love this creativity in everyday life Mimi?! I've never seen chocolate books before, but I can imagine the chocolatier laying awake at night thinking "what should I do for my shop window this week?"

I LOVE stationery Mimi but, I love it even more in chocolate. I can just see the children sitting at their desks nibbling on their pencils !! XXXX

Dearest Mimi,

Guess that you indeed have to go back for us... IF only I had the time, I could come down the four hour drive to help you search for them.
Love to you,

Mariette

Back to school must take on a different attraction when it is translated into chocolate.

Wonderful window display, those chocolate books look like old classics, am sure some kids could get away with 'enjoying' some of these 'delicious' reads during the reading lesson :)

These are great I love stationery so for just a minute I was disappointed to discover they were all chocolate. Never mind I love chocolate as well.
