It seems like the first week in May is usually rainy in Paris. We are very much in the thick of that right now. It’s not completely pouring and totally unbearable, although it isn’t the lovely April in Paris anymore. This week’s Five Friday finds from France features two new Paris books – Paris: From the Air and All the Buildings in Paris: That I’ve Drawn So Far, a major fraises de bois find at Eataly, Truff Truffle hot sauce and more!
How is it already the last day of April? It seems like yesterday was April 1st. Watching the flowers blossom and trees get their leaves again seemed more beautiful than ever been before. It was a very welcome distraction from everything else going on in the world. Good news is on the horizon for France in May and the coming months as our latest déconfinement begins. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France includes a sweet muguet (Lily of the Valley) tradition plus Christian Dior’s love for muguets, a new café to add to your Paris list, dog friendly Jardin du Luxembourg, and more!
It’s been pretty much a picture-perfect April in Paris week. It’s hard to believe that the pink blossoms are already falling and everything is almost fully green. It’s such a beautiful time of year in Paris and if you ever have the opportunity to visit in April I highly recommend it. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features yet another Monoprix find, this time something perfect for summer garden parties, my favorite fraisier (so far) from Stohrer, the oldest pâtisserie in Paris, one-of-a-kind tissue books from Inès Mélia and more.
Spring has fully sprung in Paris, and I have to admit I’ve already been daydreaming about summer. There’s a possibility outdoor dining could reopen in mid-May to early June and I’m crossing my fingers in a major way. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features a fabulous new book on the iconic French Riviera Hotel du Cap-Eden-Roc, a way you can help Treize au Jardin expand their terrasse, a new-to-me Paris boulangerie and more.
It’s been a crazy week weather-wise in Paris. We went from picture-perfect spring weather over the weekend to snow on Tuesday. Multiple times. It was very bizarre, but it’s warming back up again. I can’t wait to see even more blossoms emerging and leaves returning to trees. This week’s Five Friday Finds from France features the new Provence Glory book, a cute take on a French summer straw tote that I’ve never seen before, an unexpected picnic-perfect cheese board and more.
