Velvet Covers and Shiny Edging

Had to snap this photo at today’s meeting with Lisa. So many pastels at the table. Love the extra cheer it brought to a sunny day. We met at Physical GraffiTea this afternoon, a great meeting spot if you need a pot of tea and quiet place to chat/work.

We drank Florence, a chocolate and hazelnut black tea blend by Harney & Sons.

Lisa brought a surprise. Open the pink box. How many books come with a matching box? And on top of that…wrapped in pink tissue paper with a velvet cover. Hello, Ladurée: The Savory Recipes. You can count on Ladurée for such pretty frou frou.

I gave Lisa the sweet version of this same book when we went to Paris, and now we have a complete set! The sweet book comes with a pastel green velvet cover while the savory cookbook comes in a pastel purple cover. Shiny gold edging for the sweet book and silver (pictured) edging for the savory book. It’s all the little details that count.
