Spring in the City

Green and Gold Delivery
Cartier Store at the corner of
Graben and Kohlmarkt

Remember Yellow and Celeste?
Hermès Boutique

Every time I walk by that store,
I swoon.
Lucky me, there's no charge for that!

Gold Leaf Macaron
A cookie with its very own jewelry
Have I ever mentioned that I am
hopelessly, passionately .... oh well,
Zum Schwarzen Kameel!
I shouldn't spell any secrets
in my bewitched state.

while waiting for the streetcar.
One of these days I shall
ask her out for coffee.

Hermès Boutique
Shouldn't there be a law
against walking by the Hermès store
with an orange bag?

A Touch of Orange
Cafè Corto e Nero

brings more color

  7. @ ParisBreakfasts:
    Yes, "blau" = blue,

    I stole "celeste" = cerulean = himmelblau
    from the Italian (I like its sound and the connotations it evokes when I hear it.

  8. @ allie:
    I could spend my days looking at store windows here and from that Hermès I would pretty much take anything without hesitation. ;-)

    @ susanvon:
    How many days left til the big day? ;-)

  9. Bulgariana:
    Cafè Corto e Nero is fairly new, so you may be right. I'll ask the friend who took me there!

    You are welcome! :-)

    That macaron adds a whole new dimension to "All that glitters", doesn't it? ;-)
