Dreaming of Paree!

If the stars align properly and let's hope they do! — I will be in Paris this fall! (Or, as I keep teasing the hubs and baby, "I'm going to Paris — and I'm taking y'all with me!"). 
Absolutely must get Stella Lucy on La Belle Epoque Carrousel, non? 
I have actually been painting this Ladurée cake topper — with loooong breaks — on a cake pedestal for a few years. (Hopefully I will finish this summer and will post it.) Can't wait to see the real thing at Ladurée. 

Of course, I will probably just stand at this window and worship at the Ladurée altar for a few moments before going in. If you, too, are a fan of the luxury baker, I think you can understand my reverence.
Of course, I must visit Marie-Antoinette's apartments. I'm really more of a fan of Madame de Pompadour, but I think these rooms are worth a whirl. 
In the meanwhile, I want to get this photo collage from CarolineMint at Etsy for $20. I just need a reminder that such a place actually exists on this planet.
