Saturday Snapshot -- Macarons

To participate in the Saturday Snapshot meme post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post on West Metro Mommy. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.
Since it's July, I'm also participating in Paris in July cohosted by Thyme for Tea and Bookbath.
The photo from Paris in July must have been serendipitous because my friend Najah yesterday gave me a box of macarons from the yummy bakery Pistacia Vera here in Columbus. That's the same place that Earl has purchased my birthday cake before. Always delicious. 
Najah gave me the macarons to say thanks for some wicker furniture that we salvaged and took over to her house. Pretty good trade, huh?
I put the macarons in this pretty French bowl given to me by one of the French teenagers who came to stay with us. 
So, although the macarons are not from France, they give Laduree a run for their money, and they are tradiationally French, plus the bowl is from France.
Hope everyone is having a lovely Saturday.

Beautiful and I'm sure they are delicious! Macarons, madaleines, all fine images reminding me of Paris. Thanks for sharing.

They certainly remind me of Paris - everywhere we went the patissieres had them in the window, and they looked and tasted wonderful. My Snapshot is at http://goo.gl/s0KyN

Hey there, how come I didn't get one of those macaroons? I did help gather that furniture. :)
