Pictures from Paris

The summer vacation is really present here where I live. Almost quiet and there are no traffic rush on the small roads. I like this silence. I know I like it for  a while, then I would like to get things back to normal, and it usually does in the middle of August.  I am sure a lot of you are on vacation too and I hope you have a great time. Here you have a collection of pictures from my Paris trip this summer. Soon there will be pictures of miniatures..;)

Macarons, not from Laduree, but a nice little place near by our hotel.  As you see they come in several sizes.p1

These pictures were taken from a miniature/ice-cream shop!

                                 A very cool mix if you ask me.

I have wanted to visit this shop for a while and we manage to do it this time. It is located near by Les Halles and are called E.Dehillerin. This is where the French chefs picks out their tools. I bought a couple of things, like a small very sharp tomato knife. Very handy to have.

Ending it with some more macarons. You can find them almost anywhere:)

Fine bilder fra Paris, jeg venter på å se ostedisken i miniatyr på bloggen din... Jeg har vært flere ganger i den miniatyrbutikken på Ile Flottante, virkelig mye nydelig der, og mye dyrt :-)

Dear Christel, after all these macarons, my blood sugar through the roof! Fortunately, you published a photo of the cheese, my favorite by far!
You and your daughter are beautiful and it's nice to see you smiling side by side: I say this as a daughter and as a mom :-)
Reguards, Flora
