The real Patisseries

As most of you might already know or have easily guessed, I have a thing for bakeries and pastry shoppes. Now let me be clear and tell you that I love all bakeries of any kind in every country that I have ever visited, in fact I have never been in a bakery that didn't do something for me but there seems to be something extra enchanting about some of the Parisienne bakeries that I have been to. These were the bakeries that inspired my last collection of fabric, aptly named Patisserie, that will hit stores in March, 2009. But after this trip I could easily create another 3-4 yummy  collections inspired by the sights and smells of these wonderful little shoppes….

I think maybe pictures will tell a better story than words.

Little Slices of Heaven….

Look at all those lucky shoppers…
Little morsels of handmade marzipan fruits. Not inexpensive that's for sure but that's because each one is dyed and handmade…
Have you ever seen meringue that looked yummier…
Those famous French goodies, known as macarons, made famous by Laduree

    Oh my, I can totally see your fabrics in those “Little Slices of Heaven”. I will take 3 yards of the fruit one in the middle.
    I wouldn’t want to use it all up at once.

    Beautiful photos. I especially love #1 and #3. It would be so fun to see some of your fabrics in those wonderful bright colors. The marzipan fruits are so darling. That is so great that you were able to go to Paris. Sounds amazing.
