Happy Bastille Day : An Australian Frenchie in Paris

Happy Quatorze Juillet !  There's nothing like having one's illustration photobombed by a cheeky French Bulldog after labouring at the drawing board especially for Bastille Day. Sacre bleu and pass a profiterole !

I haven't the heart to chastise, as I think this poppet was merely endeavouring to snuffle closer to the macaron crumbs on my chin.  And possibly some remnants of a tarte framboise.  {What can I say ?  It was a long day ... And between you and me,  I've had far less appealing offers ...}

As capris and Bretons are more universally flattering than a sea of ruffles, let us opt for our Frenchie friend's classic Parisian wardrobe choice for our pâtisserie crawl.  I've issued a decree Chez Shell that anything made with butter has zero calories for the next 24 hours.  Let us make haste.  And on that note ...

Happy Bastille Day to you !

  3. As I am there now enjoying plenty of zero-calorie butter, I can say with some authority that your illo is every bit as charming as the real thing (if not more so). Vive la Shell!

    1. Isn't it amazing, dear Alexa, that you can be sitting there in Paris reading something I posted here in Australia about being in Paris. Almost like seeing a mirror in a mirror. Merci, ma chère !! Bon appetit et bisous.
