Staying in the town of Versailles, France




The town of Versailles is much more than just the home of the chateau where French Kings lived and hunted.
It is a pretty little town about 40 minutes from Paris.
 We had the great pleasure of staying at the Trianon Palace Hotel. a Waldorf Astoria property.
 The hotel also is home to a spa run by Guerlain.
The air inside the hotel is scented with Guerlain parfum. 
It has two onsite restaurants both excellent. And the property is right next to the palace grounds --you can see the goats and sheep grazing in the fields. When you walk out the front door of the hotel and turn right you are right at the Queen's entrance to the chateau grounds.
The grounds are open even when the palace is not. We  had fun walking around on Monday when it was relatively empty.We rented a golf cart and went all around and fed the swans.

It was fun walking around the town and discovering cute antique shops. It was also a nice change of pace from the bustle and traffic of Paris.
 I want to go back and spend more time in the town.
Have a Pink day!

Peggy Porschen Pink London Bakery








Truly one of the highlights of our recent trip to France and London was a visit    ( OK 2 visits) to the Peggy Porschen Bake shop in Belgravia. 
It is so PINK.

The cakes, cookies, hot chocolate are so yummy. It was still decorated from the May Chelsea Flower Show decorating. I could have just remained there for a week and been happy.

 I would love to take a peony flower making class. I did buy the cutters for peony leaves and may try it on my own.

She does some amazing wedding cakes that is what she is known for and for her baking books and her academy for training pastry arts.

Souffle-Marie is waiting for her Valentine!

 Sweet friends spy things at estate sales fr me, sweet friends give me pink gifts and I always seem to find pink vintage linens on sale on Etsy or in a shop.
What better time to enjoy them than Valentine's day?

Swan perfume bottle


A treasure from Etsy

In my ongoing search for pretty swan items I found this vintage perfume bottle on Etsy. I think it is from the 1950's Not expensive at all.
I hope one day I will have real swans in my life again.
