Sugar collage
Good Morning!
It's Monday morning and we all need something pretty to start our day.

How about these freaking cute little sugars?

My friend, Mary of Popsicles & Sandy Feet, picked these up in Paris and sent them to me...what a delightful package of cuteness.

Cute Sugar from Paris
On the side of the package, it has some English and says: "Hooking sugars for hot drinks." Sorry, the 8th grader in me just giggled.

I can't read French, but the manufacturers website is full of sugar cuteness. Check out Belle De Sucre!

Thanks East Coast Mary for sending me darling sugars from Paris! - west coast mary

Well, sucre means "sugar" and colombes is "doves." One of the translations for cavalier is "rider" [as of a horse], thus 'sugar dove riders' -- I don't believe they meant it to have a double meaning here, but I did notice that it's close to 'vue cavalière' which means "bird's eye view." :-) On the website it says 'oiseaux à accrocher sur le bord de la tasse' which is "birds to hang on the edge of the cup" -- the other shapes are butterflies [papillons], crowns [couronnes], stars [étoiles], flowers [fleurs], clovers [tréfles], trees [sapins], and Eiffel Towers [Tours Eiffel].

The site says they ship outside of France only if you order by fax or email, with a minimum order of 400 € [not including shipping].
