Confiserie in Montparnasse~ Walks in Paris


While taking a walk recently in the Montparnasse area
I stumbled upon this colorful little Confiserie (sweet shop).





I can't help myself when I run across these windows.
I can't let them sit without being photographed.



I want to remember these goodies forever...


and pay homage to the pride taken in each tiny piece.


And someday I will return and sit in their delightful garden~
tasting chocolates and sipping tea!

Oh my goodness - total elegance & such exquisite detail! I love that about the French - although it may be gone in one swift bite, all food is given such respect and eye-appeal...gorgeous! Warm wishes, Susie

Kirsten dearest,
Thank you for coming by but most of all, thank you for being such a sweet and faithful visitor; your pictures are stunning, so stunning. I love it all and the previous post on Ladurée is breathtaking. The colors they choose are fairytale magic! This is long over-due, but you need to be on my bloglist dearest....I will do that right now.

Have fun my friend! Anita

I'm just about to make a cup of tea and the cupboard is bare. I wish this beauty was within walking distance!

Susie~ Thank you so much for coming by. And have to agree about the French. They are serious about food and beauty!

Anita~ Thanks also for your visit and for putting me on your bloglist.

Catherine~ Me too!

Anne~ I took so many shopfront window shots I could do a whole post on them. In fact, I'll probably do a few! Thanks for your comments!
