Les Gateaux on my Decoupage Tray

My friend and colleague, Joanne, won this decoupage wooden tray at a charity event that our professional association held two Christmas' ago. I wanted it so badly that she gave it to me! You can see why I wanted it so much ...
It has yummy illustrations of French style pastries all over it. I also like the brown and beige striped border.
(Perhaps I will do my daily French lesson off of this tray today. There are many French words on it. Right now, I am proud to say I know that the French word for cake is gateau, a masculine noun that requires "le" or "un" before it. The plural form of gateau is gateaux. I am learning, albeit slowly, the French language ... one bit at a time, sort of how one should enjoy un gateau.)

If you like this tray, you can find it at:
micheldesignworks.com and onecoast.com.

Until Paris ... only five months and three days to go!

I'm really enjoying your new blog. Thanks for the BBC clip - very interesting!! I must watch the whole thing.

Come and check out the French Patisserie cards I just won over at my blog. Lately everything is French somehow. Maybe it's a sign. ;)
