My Favorite Places in Paris, Tennessee by Emma Taylor from the Sweet Nothings Lingerie Series by Meg London.
Paris is my hometown, and I’ve recently returned after several years in New York City. I’ve fallen in love with Paris all over again! These are some of my favorite places:
The Sweet Nothings Lingerie Shop: My Aunt Arabella owns the shop, and I helped her renovate it and get rid of all vestiges of the original 70s décor. It’s now as pretty as the inside of a chocolate box with pink paint, black and white toile furniture and some shabby chic accessories.
The Eiffel Tower: I know what you’re thinking—this isn’t Paris, France! But we have our own replica of the Eiffel Tower here, and I love that it reminds me of travel and foreign destinations.
Let Us Cater To You: My Aunt Lucy’s catering shop. It’s just a sliver of a space but Lucy creates marvelous things here. She has a few small tables up front where you can sit and sample things from her pastry case or chew on a couple of her famous cheese straws.
Sprinkles: I love my friend Bitsy’s cupcake shop. It smells heavenly when you walk in—like vanilla, sugar and spice. She makes cupcakes in so many delicious flavors—my favorite is the carrot cake with cream cheese frosting.
Angel Cuts: I get my haircut here and Angel does a wonderful job. It’s also a great place to pick up gossip while having your nails done!
