La tour de macarones ....!


A while back I mentioned that as part of the spring celebrations in the city many shops are decorating their windows for the Windows of the City competition. Not that we needed an excuse to visit Jean Pierre Sancho on Hay St. but Aimee and I thought we really should check their window :) Too many temptations, although I lost my heart that magical moment many moons ago when I tasted for the first time a JPS brûlée tart..heavenly! This may be my vote for best window..  As for the results of our Federal elections I can't bring myself to think about it yet except to say.. seriously people WHY? I'll be painting tomorrow, that should be fun (read messy)..happy weekend, take care.....!

  1. I like window shots like that as it gives an automatic abstract look to things, sometimes I would even get myself in the photo if I didn't pay close attention.

  5. Une tour de macarons, I'm sure Gustave Eiffel would love it!
    I've just watched a really good little Beeb film about the election because I have to admit I didn't know much about it but I still don't know enough to have an opinion... I do, however, like your shade of white so bonne peinture !

  6. Both are lovely shots.

    I don't know enough about the political situation Down Under.

    Hope your politicians aren't as bad as ours!

  8. I can certainly understand why anyone who loves all things French would be attracted to it. :)) And I agree it's wonderful.

  11. We did our best re election. Have fun painting. What do they say? "Keep calm & carry on"!!! My Adobe Flash plugin has crashed - makes it difficult to comment much.

  13. Sorry, I don't know enough about Australian politics to comment. Oddly, a good friend of mine from high school in St. Louis, Missouri, has worked most of her life in a public health department department job in Canberra. Funny how people end up in far flung places.

  14. I tend to avoid political comment on my blog too. All I can say about yesterday's election is "O dear" verging on "Grrrrrr..."
    Moving on to your window. It is so eye-catching. Wish there was more competition for window dressing. It could be fun and great for the streetscape too.

  15. Surely your Francophile vote goes without saying. Don't forget to double the time you allow for painting, and then some more.

  22. Wonderful shot of the window competition, Grace!! And it's definitely time for breakfast here in Portland -- particularly after seeing the shot of the tart!!! Mmmmmmm!! Yummy!

  23. Our elections also bring feelings of despair, too. Win some, lose some!

    What a tasty treat; hope the tower tastes as good as it looks.
