oh i feel so great ! i painted my nails bright red tonight , all mothers of two will understand how crazy it feels ! also i am all about vanilla taste this days , made a good replica of my brother`s vanilla and coconut cream chicken-slow cooked ....mhhh could give the recipes if asked for :)
oh my ! it was so beautifull here when i came back , the colors of the nature , like a painting through my window, the smells too : woodfire , rotten leaves and apples on the trees ...
i had this urge to do millions of new things , plenty of small and big projects popped up in my mind , i did not know were to start so i thought i should occupy my hands while my head was pounding , i sat and made Apple jam ! peeling the apples one by one and cooking them for hours with sugar and vanilla and ginger and raisins ....

i could not miss on this ice cream bar when i heard they had some of the best taste in town ! caramel au beure salé ( salty butter caramel ) was my choice and i will remember it ...the place name is Grom and is rue de seine .
also the same day i was by pure chance in front of pierre Hermé and they was less than 20 peoples in the queue so i run and got my hands on some of his macaron and vanilla eclairs

i recommand a visit to the Bonpoint shop for all woman who has children or not ! they have the biggest sweetest dreamiest shop in town , its literally huge ! they took over an old Hotel Particulier and it has a caffe and a inside backyard and so many rooms , and the mini wool pull over are so soft you want to roll yourself inside ..
today i was back to paris and busy to get to all my favorite shops , and no trip to the chic paris would be complete ,without going to le Bon Marché , it is the deluxe version of shopping malls with voiturier to park your car outside and all the best brands from top luxury Chanel down to cool designers a la Jerome Dreyfuss , also you can find beauty counters and kitchen wears and more ...
right on the side is to be found the food mall in the same luxe version with all the best food from around the world. not to be missed ...
the Vanessa Bruno shop that Beyonce visited AND had a shopping raid into last time she was in Paris ...rue saint sulpice .
Sonia Rykiel main shop witch has been standing at saint-germain-des-prés since the 60th , entirely renovated last year and with carpet so sick and pink you drown into them ..not so easy with hight heels !

i always felt provence was dry but if you keep looking around you find all kind of water fountains and some like this one was for sale at the antique market in Isle sur Sorgue .
those water weels are made of wood and metal and are to be found all over the Sorgue river
the fountain at Edith Mezard shop witch is situated in an old horse barn in the village of Lumiere , Edith is the master of classic linen embroidery and so very chic is her shop .
vegetables and fruits look always so much better here , and taste better too :)
i grill those ones in a pan with some olives oil , fresh tymian salt and pepper .
a salad of flat green beans and mini tomatoes from the ecologic garden of my aunt .
