I WAS DOING JUST FINE WITHOUT PARIS UNTIL...

Pia's photos

Elisabeth's handsome asparagus vendor

These photos that someone linked to recently. (Can't seem to retrace my steps to find out who it was.)

Little tuggy things pull at my heart. Why not dangle a freshly baked croissant under my nose, then stamp it into the (wet, cold) ground. Hunh? IMEANWHYNOTJUSTDOTHAT?

Oh, but it's the old grass is greener syndrome to some extent. I kept seeing Sessùn mentioned on blogs all over the place. "Why can't I be in Paris so I can go and look at all their lovely stuff?" I whined.


Then, looking on their website I saw the Sessùn shop is in rue de Charonne. I realised I've been in the shop about ten times and have ended up not buying anything. So - the power of wanting what's out of reach. And the power of the internet since their site is gorgeous.

mademoiselle K: I know it's sad. i have to restrain myself from doing "I miss Paris London is boring" posts all the time. You're moving to Paris permanently? So lucky, I don't know when I'll go back next...

BB: I have some B&W film - you could pose for me!

nancy: yes the grass is greener, with better accessories and prettier flowerbeds...

stacy: give the fair city my love!
