I’m working on a post that will hopefully be up in a day or two, but in the meantime I’m finally getting around to a long overdue task, which is putting up a shot of the beautiful watercolor that Carol of Paris Breakfasts sent to me!
Back at Christmas I mailed Carol some of the gingerbread cookies I had made, along with some chocolate candy from Bittersweet. Little did I imagine that my humble baked goods would soon be immortalized in the Carol’s deft brushstrokes!
It was very exciting to received a mysterious envelope from New York City in the mail a few weeks later; cutting it open, I found carefully wrapped inside a beautiful rendition of my gingerbread sitting next to a cozy cup of tea with my bag of candy in the background! I never thought my creations could look so good!
I wanted to wait until I had the watercolor properly framed and placed to take a photo, but unfortunately the shot didn’t come out well, so you’ll have to take my word that the picture now lives in a lovely wood frame and is hanging – where else? – in my kitchen.
If you haven’t been to Carol’s site, you should hop over – not only is she a fabulously talented painter (and all her watercolors are for sale on her site) but she is a Francophile and dessert lover of the first order – oftentimes her mouthwatering shots of Parisian pâtisseries and cafes are just what I need when I’m dreaming of Paris.
Merci mille fois, Carol!
