Happy Bastille Day!

It's the 14 July, and a national holiday here in France - a day which started with the traditional "défilé" of various military organisations down the Champs Elysées this morning.  All enjoyed on live TV from the comfort of the sofa :)

There were some lovely images of the City of Paris which I'd like to share - they are taken from the TV so a little blurry, but if you squint, it's almost as if you were there :)

And on this day of "Frenchness", why not treat yourself to something 100% "made in France" from our Etsy store :)


  1. Happy Holiday! Beautiful candies!
    Best wishes.

  2. Wonderful photos of Paris--thanks for sharing them with the Francophone world! I so wish we were coming back this year. Still time to talk my husband into it, though.

    Meanwhile, we are drinking Rose every night and pretending.
