I made a few discoveries this week. A not-so-good one was the fact that somebody not only really like my idea of poodle inspired fashion editorials, they decided to take all of the photos I’ve collected over the years and retouched to make them look their best and then created a post of their own without any reference to the source (i.e., Fashioned by Love). Such a discovery made me sick. This isn’t the first time it happened to me and while I don’t mind people using the photos I think it’s unfair when they just flush down all the hard work that goes into the original post and give you a zero credit. So that was quite a highlight of my day.
A much better news came in a form of a photo that resurfaced while I was clearing up my disk storage. It wasn’t just the picture that made me smile, but the message that was carefully placed in a corner of it. Patisserie Cador, it read.
Apparently, the charming tea salon decorated in the style of Louis XVI was situated on the corner of rue de Louvre and 2, rue Amiral de Coligny. Some say it was closed for renovations and turned into a snack shop. If you are in Paris and have time to visit and check, please do share an update. I would really love and appreciate that.
