Sally and I are going to be Grandparents! And a Visit to Au Nain Bleu, Paris…
It’s funny how the stars align some times. And this was one of those times.
We’ve known for some time that our son and daughter-in-law were expecting. What we haven’t known was when the Grandparent Genes were going to kick in. It turned out it as in Paris, walking back from dinner on our last night – dinner given to us by Drew and Lindsay as a Christmas present. As we wandered along St. Germaine back to our hotel, a tiny shop window caught our eye – Au Nain Bleu. Full of beautiful toys and stuffed animals, all clearly hand made with wonderful attention to detail, we HAD to bring back something to our grand child to be! Checking the shop hours, we determined if we arose early we could race the several blocks to the store, purchase a “treasure” and be back to our hotel before the cab arrived to take us to the airport. Which is exactly what we did, finding the cutest little floppy eared bunny you ever seen!
Actually, it was hard to choose!
As Sally was completing the transaction and chatting with the owner, I found myself looking at the shop’s details thinking, “Awesome!!!” They might be useful in our presentation in French Style on March 22, during Boston Design Week. (More on the presentation another day.) Just look at the skinny concealed door with it’s hardware and the mirror to it’s left. What about the tall “column to it’s right? Delish! No?
Check out the cool pull out shelves! Oh, and wouldn’t you love the rocking sheep or a couple of those gorgeous blue push cars in the upper left corner? (They were flawless BTW…)
The crown molding in the ceiling. Wonderful!!!
Here’s to a wonderful week.
