a few of my favourite things around the house…
Posted in stylists own March 28th, 2008 by piablog

this pie shoot I styled with incredible food editor Emma Knowles and photographed by Petrina Tinslay

This Moroccan chair from my old store, and my Signature Prints cushion. And this window display I shot in Paris.

oh yes! I should bake some this weekend.

this peacock feather that comes in handy for adding a dash of vibrancy to a little vignette. and my old old books.

the wheels on Napolean(‘s) chair, a skeleton leaf and my ancient Mandolin.

    Those cookies look amazing. I was thinking of making biscuits of some sort soon so maybe I’ll make yours! I’m making plum and cardamom cake this weekend though. Yum!

    those two pics at the bottom – w/the feather and leaf – are exquisite pia, the light and the moody tones are so evocative of the Dutch Masters…wonder if it was the Amsterdam light and you capturing, in a moment, a previous time… such soul. beautiful.

    Your “choc and cranberry cookies” are more than delicious! I liked them so much that I included it in our April Newsletter. It’s been in our website since February and some of our visitors have made them too. Thank you for sharing it with A World in a Pan!

    Thanks Laura! Yoli, that is exactly where i would have lead you to find the recipe, so please click on the link in Laura’s comment and you will find it there, enjoy! and let me know how you go with the recipe.

    Marie, the shop is called Tombe something, I can’t ever remember the full name but it is in montmatre, on rue lepic before you turn up to head toward sacre coeur. You would absolutely love that store!

    oh my, annie, thank you so much! just call me martha.

    PS I don’t know why in writing I say ‘oh my’ but I never say it when I speak.

    PPS don’t call me martha though, i do prefer to be called pia.

    PPPS Mary-Laure with all your sweet comments. The mandolin is passed down from a French relative. And the pie was delcious indeed. I am looking forward to thanking you in person for all your beautiful comments on the blog!
