The Dormouse in the Teapot again! I was going to prove my favorite cousins (T and L) in NJ wrong. They said that all I do in Paris is eat and drink (not that I see anything wrong with that).

I had my camera packed so that I could take a picture at the movie theater. Well, needless to say, our timing was off and the movie times didn't work out.

So, we decided to to go to lunch instead (surprise!). I had a combination of my 2 favorite foods here in France - cheese and bread. Of course, I had a glass (or two) of wine. As they say, when in France...

Then, of course, we had to have dessert. They have an amazing choice of pies, tarts and cakes. We each ordered a different one and shared - yum!!

From left to right - Elizabeth, moi, and Leesa

After dining and wining, we saw the cutest boutique that had the cutest pink bag in the window (Leesa). So, of course, Leesa bought the cute pink bag.

And then, Leesa and Elizabeth saw the cutest bag that "was so me" and they made me buy it (or so the story goes that I told Tom)! And, it was on triple sale!! How could I say no!! Pictures of my Parisien bag....oo la la!!

THANKS a lot for forcing me to buy that purse that was NOT on sale!!!

I'm so glad that Alex thinks my bag is trés elegant - what a compliment!

But, of course, you had to buy the pink bag! It's so you and it's trés chic!!

Marjorie, the creator of your bag, is my daughter in law. I am always so proud to see her purses and other accessories here and there although I have nothing to do with her creative powers. Her niche is affordable accessories and she has stores all over the world. Plus a website for buying onling at

Hi Anne,

Hey Brigitte,

Hi Linda,
