L'artisan Ceinturier - The Workbench


Just inside the doorway, the artisan's workbench. Of course the red bucket of roses was the pièce de résistance!  Only in Paris......

This is just perfect, Virginia, great shot. And the roses... What a nice touch, and an odd number of flowers, of course. As I said, just perfect. I personally miss your "little friend" from last night's picture. What happened to him? ;-) Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)

Pots and old tools used every day. I like that! what a mood in that shop! and the roses add a touch of poetry; An interesting person must work there!

Ah - but what are these bibs and bobs used for? My guess is upholstery.

An interesting photo of his workbench but why is it so clean and all put away? Did you visit his shop at the end of the day?

The red roses are definitely a charming touch. There are so many details on this bench to attract the eye. Lovely photo!

This artisan is a man after my own OCD heart—look how neatly everything is arranged, with matching jars of buckles and things! And you're right about the roses. The perfect touch, V.

This bench is a work of art itself!

Oh how fabulous! I laughed out loud when I saw the roses, red too of course! Yes, only, only in Paris. The utilitarian still has to be beautiful!

This is one of the things in Paris that I've neglected. Thanks for the reminder to slow down and look for wonderful old shops like these.
