shame on us

The Gardener and I were up doing business on the north side of town and finally 
got to visit a popular French bakery that 
we hear so much about. Before I got inside the door, the curtains on the glass doors told me I'd love it.
Shame on our indulgence, but such a French pastry who can resist? At least we shared it!
I loved, loved the table we sat at ... it had a built-in tablescape. Am I the only one who 
would get confused and keep trying to pick up the fork? Well I did. It got embarrassing!
So much to look at. A visual, creative feast for the eyes. And open 24/7.
Cozy. "Paris Shabby Chic."
I found it so interesting to look at all the lamps they had built. A sharp eye will find some here and there.


  1. I so wish I could go there and I am so glad you were able too.
    Smiles, Dottie

  2. That looks like fun...and the pastry...yum!

  3. Oh my!!! A feast for the belly and the eye! I would enjoy that place, too! Too bad it wasn't closer to me.
    Hugs, Cindy

  4. That's my kind of place. For a minute, I was confused with that place setting!! I'm not sure I would have been willing to share that pastry.


  5. What a treat! If that place was near here I'd be visiting often!

  6. What an adorable place, and how cool for your husband to indulge you both. LOVE the silverware/dishes on the table...decoupage-like.

    Wonderful. :)

  7. Podso,
    How wonderful to take the time to have an indulgence with your hubby! The decor of this shop is magnificient! While you were enjoying the lamps, I was taking in the gallery of art on the wall! Thank you for taking us along on your excursion!

  8. What a cute place! Thanks for sharing it. I love that painted tablescape, but shame on you-- you should have shown us more food goodies!

  9. That looks like a real treat! I am sure I would be trying to pick up the fork too.


  10. Well there was a movie that someone said "You had me at Hello" and boy did you!

    Hello that pastry? MMMMMMMMM...

    I'm hungry now sista and not for my grapes that I plan for breakfast!

    Enjoy your day my sweet friend!

  11. Hi Podso
    Looks like an interesting place to share sweets with your hubby. I'm sure I would be trying to pick up the utensils from the tablescape scene too, they look so realistic.

  12. Oh wow, that looks so cool! You'll have to tell me where it is so next time I'm in town, I can go!=)

  13. Dotsie,
    How wonderful. I love the tablescape already done for you. The lamps are neat and the pastry! I might not have been able to share....

  14. That does look like a fabulous place. Wow! 24-7 -- they must have folks coming there for all sorts of reasons if they can stay open all the time. Nice play to hang out. The lamps are cool and the painted table is wonderful. Always nice to share a scrumptious dessert. :) Hope your day is great. Tammy

  15. I love that french cafe. What a neat idea to paint the table with plates and cutlery. Thanks for sharing. Pamela

  16. I love old photos! What a neat one to have of your Grandpa and Great Grandpa!


  17. You had your camera with you!

  18. I say hooray for you!! No shame at all... just kindly appreciating those folks hard work in the kitchen. We all know a cook needs that kind of thing and y'all were just doing your part! ;) I'm thinking I would have enjoyed this little visit... and, I'm not sure I would have shared. hee hee. blessings ~ tanna

  19. My daughter and sister in law LOVE Amalies. I have plans to go the next time we visit Amber. Would this not be a great venue for a shower, or a tea? Thanks for the images. Now I can't wait to go!


I enjoy the conversations that come with comments!
