Un café et des cocktails



a colorful café


This terrasse on Rue de Turbigo, captured my attention first for the colorful café chairs, but the Cafés Richards cups were my favorite.  The mixture of colors and patterns remind me of the simple design and secondary colors of Fiestaware.  After the 2010 trip an artist friend, Carol Schiff, created this beautiful interpretation of the cups, a daily reminder of my Paris obsession.

3 couleurs de chaises et 4 couleurs de tasses, cela fait un peu beaucoup.

Such glorious colours. I expect the owner to be wearing a white hat with a huge orange bow N'est Pas?

What happy colors on this gloomy winter morning! Hope you're safe and warm ... I would like to be sitting sipping on a café and munching on a croissant in Paris instead of sitting at the airport drinking mediocre coffee :)

I should like to be there right now! I do love Carol's painting, too!

The colours of the chairs and cups really do please the eyes, and that's a lovely painting!

Great mix of colors—and I love that painting too!

You're right. They are kind of like fiesta ware, and the chairs are also mixed colors, too. It must be their thing.

I like your friend's painting.
