Quelques jours à Paris (cinq, last one, Astier de Villatte)



Last but not least,
Astier de Villatte on Rue Saint-Honoré...


with its handmade delicate, chalky ceramics,  
shelves stacked high with a mismatch of plates 
 & bedecked with rows of cups, jugs and votives.
All set against a haven of creaky floorboards, 
narrow stairs, tattered wallpaper,
and age-old ambience. 

Another good reason to love Paris.

  1. Thank you for sharing these photos with us. A delightful way to see Paris through your magic lens. As always.
    Warm hugs from NY (where the weather is chilly and windy)

    1. I hear the weather is going haywire,
      freezing in central Europe and boiling hot in Lapland :)
      So happy you came along for the ride,
      but oh boy would I love a chance to visit your BIG city one day!
      Take care, x

  2. Astier de Villatte - sigh...
    Thank you for this little trip, it really inspires me to just grab my dear husband and flee to Paris for a weekend.
    But could you please tell me the name of your hotel? The picture of your room (and the hotel's neighbourhood) looked so very charming :)

    Have a lovely monday,

    Anne

    1. Thank you dear Anne,
      a little Paris escapade with your husband sounds like the most perfect idea...

      I just emailed you with the hotel details.
      It was a pretty perfect spot...

    1. Kiitokset :)
      Sitä on Pariisi näemmä mullekin,
      Pariisi ja Lontoo oikeastaan,
      voisin ravata joka vuosi, monta kertaa...

      That place was an abundance of frail goodies,
      from floor to ceiling...

It makes me happy
when you leave a trace

- whether it's a single word
or you scribble all over.
