The Smiths bakery caught my attention when I was strolling around in my old neighborhood St Germain last week in Paris. I had not seen this bakery before and it looked very welcoming with the Berthillon cart just in front. I went in to have a sneaky peak and fell in love with their mouthwatering pastries…..
My camera only caught the sweet products in this bakery (what else do you expect when yours truly has a sweet tooth?) But they have lot’s of different salads, quiches, sandwiches and salty things for lunch and dinner as well. The Smiths Bakery has a New York / London style with a French touch and looked very charming with it’s beautiful antique looking mirrors with the menu written on them. They are open everyday (yes, even on Sundays!!!) between 9h-00h30. Too bad they didn’t exist when I was still living in Paris, since I’m a night owl I would have dropped by often in order to satiate my late hour desires for French pastries.

I must be a mermaid. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living.

Pivoines – glamorous pink snowballs…don’t you think they look like that? I love pivoines and can’t resist buying bouquets after bouquets of these wonderful flowers.
This morning I was supposed to take an early flight at 7 to Stockholm, had an appointment at my dentist…..but what can I say? Yours truly missed her flight – yes, I guess everything is possible when you’re name is Solli. There was nothing else to do than calling my dentist to get a new appointment + buying new flight tickets. Not the best way of ending the week on…instead I went to work and on my way home I bought a bouquet of pivoines to cheer myself up.
I hope your Friday started better than mine….wish you all a wonderful weekend!
“Ordinary life does not interest me. I seek only the high moments. I am in accord with the surrealists, searching for the marvelous. I want to be a writer who reminds others that these moments exist; I want to prove that there is infinite space, infinite meaning, infinite dimension. But I am not always in what I call a state of grace. I have days of illuminations and fevers. I have days when the music in my head stops. Then I mend socks, prune trees, can fruits, polish furniture.
But while I am doing this I feel I am not living.”

Souvenirs de Paris (souvenirs from Paris). During my latest trip to Paris I bought two DVD’s (“Je l’aimais” – one of my favourite movies based on a novel I love written by Ana Gavalda and “De Rouille et d’Os” that I saw last year and also liked) and two books. I have already read Coelho’s novel but thought it can be a good idea reading it in French too. You see, I do everything to maintain my French ;-)
