Qui a gagné le foulard???

Thank you all for your lovely entries describing your favorite (real or imagined) day in Paris!

I’ve been trying to narrow down my own favorite day in Paris to share, but am having a difficult time. Was it the day we wandered through the Tuilleries then wound up at Angeline for the most incredible chocolat chaud? The day we spent at the Musée d’Orsay, including a lovely lunch at the beautiful restaurant there? The first morning of our last trip, when we wandered slightly jet-lagged through the Jardins Luxembourg early on a Sunday morning after a breakfast of chocolate croissants at a sidewalk cafe? Even the days when we were tired and cranky and kept getting lost were always redeemed when we turned a corner to discover something wonderful.

But with no further ado, allow me to announce the winner….


Shar, please e-mail me your address, and I’ll get the scarf sent right out.

  1. I am so flustered, I can’t believe it!

    Ok, deep breath:)

    I would like to start by thanking the Academy…

    Thank you so much Deja! I have never won anything, and from such a wonderful person! I will treasure it:)

  2. Félicitations, ma belle Shar. Maintenant, il vous faut retrouver la ville de Paris “en chair et en os” … or “meat-world Paris”, as cyberaddicts would say.

    In the meantime, enjoy the beautiful scarf.

  3. Congratulations! It’s such a generous prize; enjoy!

    And thanks to Deja for turning me on to Talbots. The last time I was in a Talbots was literally in the late ’80s, when I felt certain I was too young (true) and not nearly East Coast enough to wear the styles (also true). But I ventured in this week upon hearing that they sell great basics, like skirts and slacks. I thought, “What the heck,” and came out with the most perfect pair of straight-legged, side-zipped black slacks.

  4. dear pseu, I assume you get some kind of alert or look back at your older posts when there are comments? I could send you a pm if I have other “Paris on the cheap” ideas, but I’d rather share them with everyone on your blog.

    On another board (chowhound) there was a thread on “Frenchie” restaurant being very good and I piped in to ask if it was also as good a value as “secrets of paris” blog said. Yes, said a gentleman with a great face, béret and beard named John Talbott:

    His blog is not only about restaurants or food, but he has eaten through a great many places from simple bistros to high-end restaurants.

    More forthcoming! (By the way, my verification word is “unalp”. Un alp – pourquoi pas le Mont-Blanc/il Monte Bianco?)
