Paris Souvenirs

True confession? More than souvenirs, most of these things are props and going straight to live at the studio. I can't turn it off, even on vacation! But no complaints, love my job, and love that it gives me an excuse to collect beautiful things. Though, next time I wouldn't mind shopping for some cute French clothes...

Paris was so fun, so gorgeous, and so inspiring. I have tons more photos to share and am working on those posts, but in the meantime this was a fun and easy post to get up first. A peak at all of the things I brought back with me. Quickie descriptions after the jump!

Starting from top left, clockwise.
Napkins from Merci, Vintage slotted spoon.
A bottle like those commonly filled with water on French restaurant tables, Cute glasses from Le Bon Marche.
Perfumey, delicious smelling Mariage Freres decaf earl grey tea for a friend.
Belleville coffee (all the cool French kids are grinding it) also for friends.
Emmanuelle Wittmann bowl.
A cheese! A tiny little goat brie! I took it on the plane. It survived. So happy.
Flea market mirror, this one is so lovely that it's going to find a place on the wall here at home I think.
Touristy Paris snowglobe.
Flea market vintage letters in French, little Paris photo book.
E. Dehillerin knives. Already enjoying these in the kitchen.
Pencil sharpeners from Merci.
Another Emmanuelle Wittmann.
Travel toothpastes from Monoprix. Cause they're cute and why not cheer up my travel kit?
Sel de Guerande table salt.
Italian leather sandals made exclusively for a French bookstore.
Vintage keys, fun coffee shop matches.
An Emmanuelle Wittmann plate, another amazing plate from super cute shop Gachon Pothier, Eiffel tower trinkets, vintage bell.
Buly 1803 scented matches.
Vintage cracked rose quartz bowl, old francs.
Plastic green spoons, vintage vaseline tin, delicious monk-made mustard, vintage flatware (lots more than pictured).
