  6. I just returned from skiing at sugar bush mountain in vermont. I lunched at a sweet little french resturant on the slopes - Chez Henri Restaurant & Bistrot. Here i experienced my first encounter with fauchon sugar cubes. I don't know if it was the wine, but I sure was making a big deal about the presentaion of the sugar. Thank you for the wonderful post, Lori

  7. Oh Janet,
    How pretty is that eclair and those pink stools and umbrellas look amazing. They are so cheerful, there on the street..... and, you don't see sugar cubes like that, very often, nowadays. As a child, I used to love it when you got two sugar cubes wrapped up like that. It was such a treat. Thank you, so much for our trip to Fauchon today but, I think I bought too much !!!! XXXX

  15. Ooooh yes! Let's go, Janet! I cannot wait to try their eclairs! One of those and one of those and don't forget...that one! And then we can eat them sitting in those adorable pink chairs outside! Maybe a bit chilly right now, but that's OK! That's what a nice hot cup of tea or coffee is for!

    xo,

  17. Completely agree with you. I've had the little pink purses (that came with a chocolate before I obliterated it) on my inspiration board since I started traveling to France :) Little things make a huge difference -- Laduree is the same obsession for me.

  18. Hi there sweetie, what a chic post!! Totally agree presentation is so important!Being a personal stylist I am of course a bit biased! I am determined to get to Paris this spring and drag my husband away from his beloved Vennice! Happy Sunday. Sharon (UK) xox

  20. I love Fauchon. My second time in Paris (1995), I went straight to Fauchon. Back then, they had those black and white coloured shopping bags. Do they still have them? It wasn't so pink before. I haven't been to Fauchon since, but judging from the photos, I should make an effort to go there once again! I love their food stuff there.

  21. sigh......I was just whisked away in a time machine - flash back to 10 years ago when I just graduated college and spent a week in Paris - solo - and my hotel was 2 blocks up from Fauchon. This post is SO perfect!

    Can't wait to read more of your great blog!
