A litte leftover from my Spring trip to Blighty......
We wandered into the Conran Shop after a game of tennis and what a nice surprise:
In celebration of the Patisserie des Reves (some of their lovely ladies, above) arriving in London
The Conran Shop was having a "French Monday Night" with goodies, free champagne
and a lot of French flavors
including these yes, CHOCOLATE vintage irons and espresso pots
splatter platters (actually they're Italian but they look very Cote Sud, don't they?)
old French cars - the Conran Shop IS housed in the old Michelin building -
stocked and stacked with French niceties. We had our usual poke around to see what was new.
I thought this table setting had a very French vibe. (C'est a dire bleu-blanc-rouge.)
(And in another direction entirely - who knew that Hundi lamps were back!?)
Couldn't resist these blossoms with the blue in the background. I'm sure SOMEWHERE in France looks like this at least once a year.
The bicycles, too, are Italian I guess, but we just won't tell anybody, shall we? I see myself toodling through the Tuileries on one of them. In a striped top and Repetto ballet slippers. With a ribbon in my hair......nice dream, huh?
Anyway shall we just say: VIVE LA FRANCE!!!! and VIVE LE CONRAN SHOP!!!!!! and leave it at that?
