V, Wouldn't have tested my will power - I'd have given in in a second! Yumee! Oh - great picture too! (how many exclamations can I use?! As many as I want!)

Truffles are too difficult to resist. I don't know how you did it. I love them.

Tested and found to be wanting, more like it...

I was under the impression that Christmas trees were to be disposed of on 12th night. Maybe they're just dead branches caught in the lighting..

Ah, yes! The window here was a temptation each time I passed with its artistic array of decadent chocolate... miam-miam!

Surely you didn't resist 'every' day Virginia!! I work on the theory that 'a little bit of what you fancy' doesn't do too much harm haha!

Leif Hagen said...

Pass the chocolates, s'il vous plait! I'm sure you did lots of sinning in that chocolate heaven!

Oh Là Là!!! Je me souviens bien de ces délies à Paris!!!!!

Hey there! Thank you for visiting dearest. Maybe one day, if you wish, hand me some of your Paris moments and I can write for you? What do you think? Anita

I have no will power when it comes to truffles.

Jack said...

These would be torture. You can't have just one.

The environment seems be comforting

That's a test I'd be more than happy to fail! When I lived there, the only thing that kept me from obesity was abject poverty. (Well, that and youth!)

JB Darlin, that would be a very chic hanging lamp with a divine feathered shade..........not a Christmas tree. :)

Starman, Loved the link you shared with us!!

Alexa, Lack o Funds can do that!

And everyone, for the record, I passed this lovely shop every day and never once ventured inside. I was too busy indulging in other Paris pleasures for that!

You must have some will power! These look absolutely irresistible. My first time here and your pictures are real nice!
