After spending so much time in Paris the past few months, it is impossible not to miss the daily flourishes, just a little. Why, yes, of course there are stunning and utterly charming flourishes here as well, but sometimes, one misses the very French-ness of things -- the art and architecture, romantic & secret gardens and perfect hedges -- and so, for today, a collection of very French things inspired by Paris and the countryside -- antique chandeliers and ruffled bed linens, coffee & croissants on a hot summer's morning and pastel squares of handmade soap . . .
A multitude of small delights constitutes happiness.
