CREATIONS BY MARIE ANTOINETTE & EDIE MARIE

Welcome to our Team Blog! Marie Antoinette & Edie Marie have joined together to create a fun place to share our ideas and lives with all of you. We know that our teaming up has been confusing for some of you and we apologize. We will refer to ourselves as Marie Antoinette (the Doll Creator & maker of fabulous items) who lives in Peacock Paradise and Edie Marie (the creator of the posts and story telling on this blog & amateur crafter of many things in my "attic") who lives on Golden Pond. What great fun we have combining our forces!!

Thank you for stopping by to see what's happening in our studios in Peacock Paradise and on Golden Pond!

Our Paris Cafe


People have asked us what our favorite 
thing in Paris was. 
(Besides the Eiffel Tower) 


 Our answer is always the little 
place we had breakfast every morning, 
Cafe le St Lazare! 


Our Barista was Pierre, pronounced Perry 
with the emphasis on the "ry". 
He was so handsome and endearing. 


Pierre did not speak English but always 
seemed to know exactly what we wanted. 
We fell in love with him and his young 
female assistant, Odelle, pronounced O-deal. 
She spoke pretty good English 
and was sweet, kind and adorable. 
The last morning we saw her she hugged 
and kissed us goodbye.
(Of course I cried)  



Our usual - cafe (coffee) and croissants. 


There's nothing like the French croissant! 
Crispy and flaky on the outside  
and the inside melts in your mouth. 


 Meet something incredible... 
the chocolate croissant! 
Heavenly!! 


Here I am at the cafe wearing the beautiful 
lace trimmed sweater Marie gave me to 
wear in Paris. I felt so tre chic mon amie! 
Merci!! 


Hubby sure enjoyed the time we spent 
sitting at the sidewalk cafe and watching 
the hustle and bustle of Paris pass by. 


Here we are enjoying our breakfast before 
taking the train to Versailles.
We couldn't miss going to the Palace to 
see where Marie Antoinette lived!  

Thank you for coming to the cafe with us! 

Bisous, Edie Marie
XOXO

  3. Ooooo, this café sounds delightful And that chocolate croissant, Yummy! I actually just had a chocolate croissant the other day. :) What a cute picture of you, Edie Marie. How interesting that Pierre is pronounced like that, I didn't realize. Marie, thank you for stopping by and leaving such a sweet comment. That was my daughter who wrote the post and she's getting married this year. Sometimes it's confusing, I know, cause all of us girls write the posts. I really love your sparkling side bars. It's just right for the new year.

    I hope you ladies are doing well, and I wish you much peace and joy in the days ahead. Isn't Celestina the kindest friend to have?

    love, ~Sheri

  4. It looks like you had a wonderful time. When I lived in Columbus OH I used to patronize a lovely bakery called La Chatelaine. It was owned by a French family who made all their pastries and breads on the premises. I agree the French croissants are the best. What you described is exactly what I used to eat at La Chatelaine. And the chocolate croissants were my favorite. They also served light lunch and supper, and made a fresh tomato basil soup that was to die for. You've brought back a dear memory. Thank you. ~ Nancy
