My time in Paris at the weekend with friends was a treat as always (despite being freezing). We ate steak tartare at an art nouveau brasserie (bouillon racine),

popped into the incredible (if macabre) Deyrolle taxidermy shop to look at the crocodiles, tigers, lobsters

and amazingly iridescent butterflies,

bought some coconut and passion fruit macaroons from Gerard Mulot (reputed to have the best macaroons in Paris),

window-shopped until our feet hurt and looked at the Selby window in the always interesting concept store Colette. Fun was had by all!

Love the butterfly collections. Did you see Bright Star? Reading John Keats in a room of blue butterflies...magical. How lucky that you can just pop over to Paris...sigh. Trish
