A Parisian Give Away

One thing I forgot to tell you is that it was my birthday, on September 8th, the day we went to Paris so I wish to celebrate it with you and this is my Parisian give away !
As I told you before, my stay in Paris implied some intensive shop seeing to spot the trends
and my give away is a few objects from Merci and Colette concept stores.

Ce que j'ai oublié de vous dire c'est que je suis allée à Paris, pile le jour de mon anniversaire, le 8 septembre alors c'est le moment où jamais de le célébrer avec vous avec de petits cadeaux parisiens !
Comme je vous l'avais déjà dit, mon séjour à Paris incluait tout un parcours fléché de boutiques pour repérer les tendances
et mes petits cadeaux ont été shoppés chez Merci et Colette.

A little notebook and an amusing set of ballpoint pens which convert into cutlery from Merci. I wish I could have added a few macarons from Ladurée but they don't travel well unfortunately. There is also a ballpoint pen from Colette store which reads "classsy" on one side and "A Lady has fabulous penmanship" on the other side.
I also add to my Parisian Give Away Un Certain Sourire by Françoise Sagan which I bought at the bouquinistes on the the quais. After all she had a lot of Paris in her....

Chez Merci, un petit carnet et un trio amusant de stylos bille dont le capuchon se transforme en couvert. J'aurais bien aimé ajouter des macarons de chez Ladurée mais ils supportent mal le transport. Il y a aussi un stylo trouvé chez Colette avec l'inscription "classy" d'un côté et de l'autre "A Lady has fabulous penmanship". J'ajoute aussi Un Certain Sourire de Françoise Sagan que j'ai acheté sur les quais chez les bouquinistes. Il faut dire qu'il y a tellement de Paris en elle....


Just a precision, no the vintage green bottle isn't part of the give away ! I just included it in the pic to recall the atmosphere of a table at Merci.

Juste une petite précision, non la bonbonne vintage ne fait pas partie des cadeaux ! Je l'ai placée sur la photo simplement pour rappeler une des ambiances de table chez Merci.

The pens are very clever and I suppose useful as cutlery...I love double duty objects. You must have had one of the most memorable birthdays! Now you are old enough to cross the street by yourself!
