In My Kitchen June 2024

It's the beginning of June and I'm joining Sherry in her monthly "In My Kitchen" share. 

I've been away for about a month, so the only new things I have to share are the few kitchen items that I purchased in Paris, our last stop (6 days) before we flew back to Miami. 

Shopping in the Montmartre village with charming restaurants, artists, and stores. 
There are also neighborhoods and amazing churches. 

I am only in Miami for a week before we drive back to Pennsylvania for the summer. 

I have not been cooking. We are pretending to still be on vacation and eating out every night until we pack up and drive back to Pennsylvania in two days!! It doesn't make sense to do a grocery order for one week and deal with cooking and cleaning and then leftover food. 

What's in My Kitchen for June? 
I purchased this French looking tablecloth here in Miami just before I left for Europe. 

In the Montmartre section of Paris there is a really fun colorful store called Pylones that is filled with household and personal items. I treated myself to a decorative set of serving spoons and a matching apron (which I have not unpacked yet).

I could not resist this adorable bag filled with Herbs de Provence ! It's a spice I frequently use and I love the traditional looking bag!

Legend says that anyone who puts both their names on a lock and locks it on the fence around the Sacre'Couer  will have a good life together . There are hundreds/thousands? of locks around the fences of the cathedral. 

Thank you for visiting my kitchen this month with my new apron, tablecloth, salad servers, and herbs de Provence from the Montmartre area of Paris. 


  1. I love that tablecloth and salad spoons!

  2. I love that salad set and seeing your photos of Montmartre reminds me of many lovely hours in Paris. (Although we never saw that village -- darn!) I cook with herb de Provence regularly and that bag is wonderful! It looks like a fabulous trip!

  3. All your new things look like great kitchen finds!
    best, mae at

  4. I love everything you shared from your trip. The serving pieces are gorgeous. I hope you have a safe trip home.

  5. Oh I so envy you. I've been to Paris twice and never once made it to Montmartre. What a shame. Glad you had such a great trip and are back home enjoying your finds from there.

  6. You are back in the USA but your heart still seems to be in Paris! Have a good week, hugs, Valerie

  7. i featured a picture of "our" lock on a fence a few days ago!!

    I have never been to Montmartre, but it certainly looks and sounds to be a wonderful destination! I love all of the things that you purchased! I haven't been blogging this past month simply due to work. That's got to change!
    I hope you have a wonderful June! It's such a nice time of year!

  9. Oh I love Pylones - it's such a fab store isn't it?! Your salad servers are divine! Safe onward travels!

  10. You have been busy with your travels, I hope you had a great time!

  11. We have 4 paintings on our walls of this area of Paris. Some from artists in the square. Love your salad servers. And safe travels.

  13. Those serving utensils! So gorgeous, Judee! Dagny told me about the thousands of locks on the fence at the Basilica of Sacré Coeur de Montmartre! xoxo

  14. Love the herb bag and the salad spoons. And the' Frenchy' tablecloth. And of course the gorgeous photos of Paris. A friend brought me back a lovely little painting of Montmartre market. So lovely. Have a good June.

  15. I know you must have had an amazing trip! I love the serving spoons you bought, so pretty! Safe travels back to PA!
