There’s a lot of things in France I can’t get enough of (‘like your husband?’ I hear him saying).   One of them is packaging.

I don’t know if it’s because the written word in French looks so cool (it’s always a shame when shopping for friends’ children and the t-shirts have ENGLISH on them!!) – or whether I just get attracted to the old-style of things here.  Some packets look like they haven’t changed in a hundred years.  Some probably haven’t.

la baleine salt

"baleine" (whale) sea salt - if you think the packaging looks a little rough around the edges, it is! There is a new version of this container out on the market but it's not HALF as lovely, so I keep decanting the new salt into this old one! ...Do I need help?
